Sri Lanka did exceptionally well in the previous fixture to level the series. Sri Lankan bowlers picked wickets at regular intervals to defend 216. Despite the loss, Australia will start favourites. We have a cracking contest on our hands. Looking at the team balance and combination, we fancy the visitors to go 2-1 in the 5 match series.
