Eat, Sleep, Whitewash, Repeat – Aussie Motto
Australia will win the match and series 3-0.
Australia Women are all over Sri Lanka team in this series and it has been all one-way traffic so far. Aussies are giving a big thrashing to Sri Lanka in every match beating them by huge margins. They will look to wind the series and tour with a 3-0 margin in this match and add yet to series whitewash to their tally.
Sri Lanka side looks to search for a miracle to save them from the disgraces faced against Australia. At this rate, even Aladdin’s gene might find it tough to help the Sri Lankan team. It will be a great success for Sri Lanka team if they manage to win at least one game on this tour and this will be their last chance. Australia will be disappointed with anything less than 3-0 whitewash in their home soil.
Australia will look to put on another impressive performance in this match and score some big runs. Alyssa Healy, Beth Mooney, and Skipper Meg Lanning are on excellent form and are scoring runs consistently at the top. Racheal Haynes scored a brilliant 116 runs in the last match to score her maiden ODI century. The Australia team management will look to give their lower-order batsmen a chance to bat higher in this match to get some game time.
Their bowling unit has never allowed Sri Lanka to cross the 200-run mark in the ODIs so far. Jess Jonassen was the pick of the bowlers with 4 wickets in the last match. Tayla Vlaeminck, Georgia Wareham, Nicola Gray, and Heather Graham were among the wickets column and are consistently troubling the batsmen with their good line and lengths. Elysse Perry has bowled just 8 overs in the ODIs so far taking a wicket and giving away just 20 runs.
Rachael Haynes – Haynes has scores of 56 & 118 in the two ODI matches played so far. She will be delighted after scoring her maiden ODI century and will look to add more runs to her tally in this series.
Jess Jonassen – Jonassen has taken 6 wickets in the 2 ODI matches played so far and she also has an economy rate of just 2.7 RPO. She will look to give yet another impressive performance with the ball.

Sri Lanka looks down and out and they are finding it hard against this mighty Aussie team in the away conditions. Their batting unit has not played well and no player yet to score a half-century this series. Shasikala Siriwardene, Harshita Madhavi, and Anushka Sanjeewani has scored the 20s & 30s but did not continue to make an impact with a big score. Their batting unit scored just 124 & 178 runs in the two ODIs respectively.
Their bowling unit is finding it difficult to take wickets on a consistent basis. They took just 2 wickets in the first 40 overs of the game but took 6 more wickets in the last 10 overs of the game. But they were not able to stop the Aussies from scoring above 280 runs. Achini Kulasuriya took 3 wickets while Sugandhi Kumari and Shasikala Siriwardene chipped in with 2 wickets each. They are yet to perform as a unit with both batsmen and bowlers clicking in unison.
Shasikala Siriwardene – Siriwardene has scores of 30 & 22 in the two matches to couple the bowling figures of 1/41 & 1/44 completing her quota of 10 overs in both the matches. She will look to make a big score and make an impact in this last match on the tour.
Achini Kulasuriya – Kulasuiriya took 3 wickets in the last match and gave runs at an economy rate of just 5 RPO. She will look to take more wickets consistently to trouble the Aussie line-up.

The weather looks bright and sunny with just 10% chances of rain on the match day.
Brisbane pitch was a batting paradise with Australia scoring over 280 runs easily in both the matches. We can expect first innings score above 260 runs in this match too.
Teams have elected to bat first in all the five matches played in this tour and we expect the same trend to continue in this match.
Australia is finding no difficulty in asserting their dominance in the ODI format now. They are brushing aside almost all the teams. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, is finding it difficult to win matches in ODIs. We expect Aussie to give yet another thrashing to the Sri Lankan team.
Australia will win the match and series 3-0.
