Sri Lankan bowlers have been outstanding in the previous two games. They successfully restricted the opponents on 228 and 206 runs respectively. In the second match, batsmen lend a helpful hand in making their team win. Kusal Mendis, Dinesh Chandimal, and Angelo Mathews delivered an excellent performance.
Along with the trio batsmen, others also gave their useful contributions to the team total. The teammates of Dilshan will try to make his last ODI a rememberable one. They will want to give him this as a victory.
If SriLanka wants to take a 2-1 lead in the series with this match, then they will have to play a splendid game in all departments. SL has always proved to be a stronger team than their opponents at their home. They have the capability to win against any team.
The led by Mathews must have got confidence as they won in the last match. With that confidence, they would love to win the Sunday’s game and take the series with the winning momentum. However, they can’t be overconfident and should know that Australia has everything with which they can also snatch the match.
Australia has good quality batsmen, bowlers, as well as fielders. Aussie skipper Steve Smith has gone back to home. Until he returns, David Warner will captain the team. Smith is expected to have gone to rest and prepare for the upcoming series against South Africa.
Warner will act as the stand-in captain and will hope to give and expect an incredible performance from his playing xi. All-rounder James Faulkner has all the belief in Warner. Moreover, he has already got enough experience to lead the side.Sri Lanka vs Australia Live Score
Despite the change in the squad, Australia’s aim to win the rest of the matches remains the same. In the absence of Smith, Usman Khawaja or Shaun Marsh can get a chance to play today. Both are excellent players and can change the course of the match at any time.
Along with the game result, all the focus will be on stand-in skipper Warner and on Dilshan who is playing his last ODI. We can hope a quality cricket from both the sides without any doubt. It has now become an exciting one day to watch.
