World ODI Cup 2023 

                                                         Match 14: AUS vs SL


Australia (AUS) and Sri Lanka (SL) will lock horns in match number 14 of the ongoing edition of the World Cup on October 16, Monday. The match will be played at the Ekana Stadium, Lucknow. Both AUS and SL will be aiming to secure their first win of their WC 2023 campaign when they take the field against one another on Monday. The last time these two sides met, Kangaroos won the contest by four wickets

Overall, the five time champions have defeated the 96’ champions twice out of their previous five ODI clashes. They will head into this fixture against the Lions having faced a loss in their last game against the Proteas by 134 runs. Prior to that, they suffered a six wicket defeat by the hands of hosts India in their tournament opener. They are currently positioned at ninth place in the World Cup 2023 points table. 

Much like Australia, Sri Lanka’s journey up till now has been nothing short of a disaster. They were crushed by South Africa in their opening game followed by another disappointing outing with ball in hand against Pakistan. The dismal show has resulted in them languishing at the bottom half of the standings.
