In a dead rubber, Sri Lanka will face Australia in the 5th and final ODI of the series on Friday. After a long wait, Sri Lanka has won the bilateral ODI series against Australia at home. They sealed a thrilling win in the 4th ODI by 4 runs to go 3-1 up in the series. Their strategy of fielding 4 specialist spinners worked really well. Charith Asalanka scored his maiden ODI century which was the main highlight of the match. They are not willing to settle for this and look to extend their margin of a win to 4-1.
Australia on the other hand gave their everything in the 4th ODI on a tricky batting surface however lost the match by mere 4 runs and dropped the series as well. David Warner’s fighting knock and a late cameo from Matthew Kuhnemann couldn’t save them from the loss. Travis Head is the latest player to get added to the list of injured players which makes Australia even vulnerable heading into the final ODI.
