It was a rare batting failure for the Australians in the 2nd ODI of the 5-match series as they were bowled out for 189 runs handing over a 26-run win to the Sri Lankans. This helped the hosts level the series. The Sri Lankan team would be happy with the performance of its bowlers as they helped the side to a win by defending a low total.  

The win would have surely boosted the confidence in the Sri Lankan camp, but the side has plenty of problems on its plate. Their batsmen haven’t been consistent in this series, and they have failed to build partnerships. It would be interesting to see if the hosts can use this momentum and take a lead in the next game against the strong Australian side.

Sri Lanka Preview

Dasun Shanaka would be happy to have leveled the series with a win in the last game. However, they can’t relax given their poor record over the last couple of years. Their batsmen failed to apply themselves in the last game and managed only 220 runs on the board. It would be a tough battle for them in this game as the Aussies are likely to come hard at them after the loss in the 2nd ODI.  

Pathum Nissanka and Danushka Gunathilaka shall need to offer a good start here as the Australian bowlers did well in the last game. The middle-order is experienced with Kusal Mendis, Dhananjaya de Silva, and Charith Asalanka in the side and these players will have to steer the innings. Shanaka and Chamika Karunaratne would have to play important roles down the order for the side to win this game.  

Their bowling attack did a good job in the last game and tight spells would be expected from Dushmantha Chameera and Maheesh Theekshana with the new ball in this game. Hasaranga’s absence is a loss for the team, but they would be happy with the form Chamika Karunaratne and Dunith Wellalage showed in the last game and good spells would be needed from them.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing XI:

Dasun Shanaka (c), Danushka Gunathilaka, Pathum Nissanka, Charith Asalanka, Kusal Mendis (wk), Dhananjaya de Silva, Chamika Karunaratne, Jeffrey Vandersay, Dushmantha Chameera, Maheesh Theekshana, Dunith Wellalage

Australia Preview

Aaron Finch would be sad to have lost the last game. Halfway through the game, it seemed the side would win it easily but their inability to build partnerships cost them the game. It was an aberration as the side has done well on this tour with the bat. Finch shall want his players to put behind last game’s loss and aim at taking a lead again in the series.  

David Warner and Finch have played well on this tour and the side would need a good start from them in this game. The middle order is formidable with Travis Head, Steven Smith, and Marnus Labuschagne. However, they must convert their starts which has been the case. In Glenn Maxwell and Alex Carey, they have clean hitters of the ball to follow down the order.  

Matthew Kuhnemann looked good with the new ball on debut, and he will have to grab early wickets along with Josh Hazlewood. Pat Cummins would be happy with this 4-wicket haul in the last game and needs to keep the scoring rate under check with his pace. Maxwell, Labuschagne, and Mitchell Swepson will enjoy the conditions at Colombo and the side would expect good bowling from them.

Weather Conditions

There are predictions for rains at Colombo on June 19. The wicket here is a flat one where batsmen have been able to score runs in the past.  We have seen sides put up big scores on the board. The side batting first would be happy to put 280 runs or more on the board in these conditions.   

Venue Details

R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo is a large ground, but it has a good batting surface and the outfield here is lightning quick. Batsmen can hit through the line on this wicket which makes it a good one to bat on. Fast bowlers have generally struggled at this venue, spinners enjoy the conditions as the ball turns sharply on this surface.  

Toss: To Bat

Most teams have done well batting first on this surface. It is best to bat at the start of the game and the spinners come into action in the second innings when the pitch also tends to slow down. Hence, we are likely to see the side winning the toss have no hesitation in opting to bat first.

Sri Lankans come here with a win, but the side would have to show consistency. This has been one of the biggest problem areas as they haven’t been able to deliver consistent performances. Their batsmen will need to show character for the side to win on this surface. Australians have a powerful batting line-up and look good in the spin department. This would make them favorites to win this game.
