Sri Lanka and Australia are going head to head in an intense five-game One Day International series where the host have managed to take a 2-1 lead. The Australian team won the first game but then the hosts came back to win the next two games. In the third ODI, the Lankans registered an incredible chase on the back of opener Pathum Nissanka’s magical 137. Now the Aussies will look to level the series in the fourth match.
The Sri Lankan team has come back to form after suffering a big defeat against Australia in the T20I series. Their bowlers have been performing at an incredible level as they bundled out the visitors for 189 while defending 220 runs in the second ODI. Similarly, their batting has also made some big strides as they chased down a total of 292 runs in 48.3 overs. In this chase, the Sri Lanka side found a new star in Pathum Nissanka who scored a massive century.
Australia had a strong start to their Sri Lanka tour as they dominated in the T20I series. But they have struggled in the ODI series, as they have suffered two heart-breaking losses. Their batters struggled in the third ODI while their bowlers let them down in the third game. Glenn Maxwell, David Warner and Aaron Finch have been their key players and would look to level the series.
