Australia are leading the five-match One-Day International series 2-1 and they will look to win series when they take on Sri Lanka in fouth ODI at Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium on 31 August (Wednesday). However, Sri Lanka looks good now they have inculcated fighting spirit in themselves which we saw during test series. After 0-1 down they squared ODI series with second match win by 82 run on 24 August.
Fixture: Sri Lanka vs Australia, 4th ODI Match/ SL vs AUS
Time/Date: 02:30 PM IST/ 09:00 AM GMT/ 02:30 PM Local/ 31 Aug
Venue: Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium, Dambulla
A great career in One-Day International came to an end when TM Dishan finally said GoodBye to International ODI career. His departure have certainly left an open space in the opening slot which is hard fill with a players who is equally as good as him.
Sri Lanka comes into this fixture after disappointing third ODI loss by two wickets. Bowlers did all hard work to defend 226 but in the end David Warner’s men had last laugh. Sri Lankan bowlers managed to pick 8 wickets, Angelo Mathews, Thisara Parera and Dilruwan Parera chipping 2 wickets each.
Meanwhile, visitors have got very good opportunity to redeem their humiliating test series loss. They are 2-1 ahead in five-match ODI series so they can seal series if they manage to win fourth game on Wednesday (31 August). Shaun Marsh has been ruled out due to broken finger and he will not be available during remainder games.
Most probably Usman Khawaja will grab the spot vacated by Shaun Marsh.
