1st ODI: SL vs. AUS


After securing the T20I series, the Aussies will now try to extend their dominance over the Sri Lankan Cricket Team in the ODI series starting from June 14, 2022 (Tuesday). In a total of five ODIs, the first two will be played at the Pallekele International Stadium, and the other three at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. 

Although the Australians managed to win the T20I series by a margin of 2-1, the Sri Lankan side managed to win the final match by four wickets, all thanks to Dasun Shanaka who destroyed the Aussie bowling attack and scored 54 runs in just 22 balls. This will hopefully boost their confidence and help them to develop their game in the upcoming ODI series.

The home team has announced that their hard-hitting batsman Bhanuka Rajapaksha is in the ODI squad and also might feature in the first match of the tournament. Meanwhile, two of the key players of the Australian squad, Kane Richardson and the prime speedster Mitchell Starc are ruled out due to injuries.

The pitch at the Pallekele ground is a track which is equally beneficial to the batsman and the bowlers.
