Mathews fit for Sri Lanka

15th December 2017, 19:51 by Aidan Perkins

Sri Lanka all-rounder Angelo Mathews is fit to play in his country's series-deciding third ODI against India on Sunday.

Matthews suffered from cramp during his unbeaten century in the second ODI at Mohali on Wednesday and there were concerns he would not be available for the final one-dayer this weekend.

However, he has trained as normal in the build-up to Sunday's clash and is expected to be fine to play in Mohali.

Sri Lanka won the first ODI by seven wickets last weekend before India levelled the score on Wednesday, winning by 141 runs.
