Sri Lanka vs Australia: Sri Lanka played very well in the first ODI, with their batting finding ways to score runs for longer periods. They came so close to winning the game but were upset by a Maxwell special. Although Sri Lanka ended on the wrong side, there were a lot of positives for them. They batted well, the spinners did well to ensure none of the Australians could build on their starts, and the fielding was pretty decent as well. The only mistake they made was letting Glenn Maxwell getaway. He looked unstoppable and that was the difference.

For Australia, barring David Warner each of the top seven got starts. They were pretty flexible with their batting lineup as well, bringing Glenn Maxwell in at number seven, and the batting line-up looked a lot deeper as a result. The batters got some time out in the middle as well, and overall Australia will be pleased with how their game has been in the ODI series.

Pitch Report

The Pallekele pitch has been helpful for the batters when the balls are bowled at a quicker pace. Against spin though, the ball tends to stop and this could indicate a lot of slower deliveries being used. Batting second will be a better option.

SL vs AUS Team News

Both sides are expected to remain unchanged for the upcoming game.

SL vs AUS Key Players

Wanindu Hasaranga

Hasaranga used his variations and googly well to bait many Australian batters in the first game. He is among the wickets and is tough to read for the Australians, and his sixty balls are likely to decide the outcome of the game, with Hasaranga threatening the batters with each ball.

Glenn Maxwell

Coming in at number seven, Glenn Maxwell batted with a lot of clarity in his role and on what needed to be done. He looked very composed despite the fall of wickets at the other end and has fallen into the finisher’s role nicely. With Maxwell in at seven, Australia can bat with more freedom at the top given they have a versatile batter still to come. He has once again shown that he can be a dangerous ball-striker and is also a handy bowler.

Sri Lanka vs Australia Match Prediction

The first game was rather tight with certain individuals shining to keep the game interesting. The second game is likely to be the same with Wanindu Hasaranga and Mahesh Theekshana playing crucial roles to help the Sri Lankan bowling attack. However, if Australia manages to tackle both bowlers they will find it easy to win.

Match Prediction: Australia will win the match.
