Australia tour of Sri Lanka 4th ODI Overview
Sri Lanka lost the T20 series 2-1 but had won two out of three matches played in the ODI series of five matches. Now they are leading the series and need just one win out of the remaining two ODI matches. This series had been disturbed by the rain as two out of three matches were decided through the DLS method. Australia is still in the ODI series but they have to win this match to remain in the series. Australia is not a weak team. They can bounce back strongly in any match. This match is going to be very interesting as both teams will play with their full strength.
Sri Lanka Reviews
The bowling department of Sri Lanka had been under pressure in this home series against Australia. We saw this in the T20 series and also in the ODI matches. The most recent match was a big example of it where they leaked 291 runs in their inning of 50 overs. Dushmantha Chameera, Maheesh Theekshana, Chamika Karunaratne, Dunith Wellalage, Jeffrey Vandersay, Dhananjaya de Silva, and the captain, Dasun Shanaka are leading the bowling department of Sri Lanka. Vandersay was the most successful bowler in the previous match with three wickets to his name in 10 overs while he was charged for 49 runs. Chameera, Dhananjaya de Silva, and D Wellalage picked one wicket each.
M Theekshana, C Karunaratne, and Dasun Shanaka were the bowlers who could not manage to pick any wicket. The batting department of Sri Lanka had been just superb especially in this ODI series. Niroshan Dickwella, Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis, Dhananjaya de Silva, and Charith Asalanka are the leading batters of Sri Lanka. Pathum Nissanka was the most successful batter in the previous match who scored a century. He scored a total of 137 runs with the help of 11 boundaries and two huge sixes. Kusal Mendis was the other batter who was just good with the bat. He scored 87 runs with a strike rate of 102. He smashed eight boundaries during his inning.
Australia is overall a strong and experienced team when we compare it with Sri Lanka but they had not performed well as many of us were expecting. The batting department of Australia is known as one of the strongest batting orders in the world. David Warner, Aaron Finch, Mitchell Marsh, Labuschagne, Alex Carey, Travis Head, and Glenn Maxwell are the star batters of Australia. They were good in the previous match where they scored 291 runs in 50 overs. Almost all batters from their side put some runs on the board. Head was the highest run-scorer in the previous match with 70 runs to his name on 65 balls with the help of three boundaries and the same huge sixes. Aaron Finch was the other batter who put some runs on the board. He scored a total of 62 runs and smashed four boundaries and one huge six during his inning.
Alex Carey also performed well in the previous match but he was also unlucky as he could not complete his fifty and scored 49 runs. Glenn Maxwell scored 33 runs while Labuschagne could manage to score 29 runs. Australia lost the previous match due to the worst performance by their bowling department. They failed to defend the target of 292 runs and leaked this target in 48.3 overs. Josh Hazlewood, Jhye Richardson, Glenn Maxwell, Matthew Kuhnemann, Cameron Green, Marnus Labuschagne, and Travis Head were the key bowlers of Australia in the previous match. Jhye Richardson was the only successful bowler in the previous match from the side of Australia who picked two wickets in nine overs while he was charged for 39 runs. Glenn Maxwell and Josh Hazlewood picked one wicket each while no other bowler from their side could manage to pick any wicket.

Pitch Report and Conditions
The st match of Australia vs Sri Lanka will be played at R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo. The pitch at this stadium is good for batting but is one of the slower pitches in the Caribbean. Run-scoring is not going to be very easy and that could actually be a good thing for both teams. A total of 170 runs can be a par score
The weather forecast for Colombo on match day is not very good. Rain is predicted for most of the day and so it looks like we are going to struggle to get a game in.
