Australia tour of Sri Lanka 1st ODI Overview
Australia had won the T20 series 2-1 and now they are going to face Sri Lanka in the series of five ODI matches. Australia won the opening of both T20 matches but was beaten in the last T20. The batting order of Sri Lanka struggled in the first T20 matches but performed well in the last match and that was the main reason why they avoid the whitewash. We think that Australia will make some changes in the ODI series. Sri Lanka bounced back after losing two matches in a row. The win in the last T20 matches had boosted their confidence and we are sure that they will give a tough time to Australia in the series of five ODI matches.
