Pallekelle: Star India cricketer Hardik Pandya has recovered on time for the third ODI against Sri Lanka, India's fielding coach R Sridhar confirmed on Saturday.

Team India all-rounder Hardik Pandya was considered doubtful, as he had cramped-up during the second ODI.

However, Sridhar cleared all doubts about Pandya’s availability: "On Thursday, Hardik Pandya was cramping. He's perfectly alright now. He should be ready for the next game,"he said.

Team India experienced a baffling middle-order meltdown in the second ODI on Thursday, after they slipped from 109-0 to 131-7, courtesy Sri Lanka’s mystery spinner Akila Dananjaya, who picked up six wickets.

 

"Akila Dananjaya bowled brilliantly in the last game. We take that forward, and we'll make sure we won't repeat the same mistakes going forward,” said Sridhar during the pre-match press conference.

India will play Sri Lanka in the third ODI here on Sunday.
