SL vs IND Fifth ODI: Sri Lanka wins toss; India to field
Colombo: Coming in to play for pride, Sri Lanka won the toss in the fifth and final One-Day International (ODI) against India and decided to bat first at the R Premadasa stadium here on Sunday.
In the rain-affected match, stand-in skipper Upul Tharanga has returned to the squad, while Kusal Mendis has been dropped, apparently for poor run throughout the series.
