These two strong South Asian teams will face each other to play the 3rd and final test match of the 3-match test series. Indian cricket team will be eyeing for victory. If India can win the final test match and take a 2-0 lead of this series then they will become top ranked team in the ICC Test ranking for the first time in their history.

So, India can overtake them by winning a match in Mumbai. No doubt that Indian cricket team will come on the field with the hope of climbing to the top spot. However, Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is worried and much concerned about the 3rd ODI match. He warns his teammates to give concentrate on the match and forget about the rankings.
Fans of both teams are already started searching to know about the kick off time and venue. This much-awaited test match will start from 04:00 GMT (09:30 local). This match will be held at the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai. This stadium was established in 1937. So, you can easily understand that it is one of the oldest stadiums in India.

Their defeat came against West Indies and Australia. Most of the matches finished with draw. For the first time Sri Lanka will play in this ground against the home team. Let us come to see who can win the match and take the top position.
