Colombo weather today: The SportsRush presents before you the weather prediction for the fourth SL vs AUS ODI.
Australian bowlers have reciprocated well to captain Aaron Finch’s decision of bowling first after winning the toss in the fourth ODI against Sri Lanka in Colombo today.
All-rounders Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh and fast bowler Pat Cummins joined hands to dismiss the Sri Lankan top-order comprising of Niroshan Dickwella (1), Kusal Mendis (14) and Pathum Nissanka (13).
Opening the bowling with Josh Hazlewood, Maxwell drew first blood in his first over itself. Dickwella, who wanted to step out against Maxwell, found himself in an awkward position on the back of losing his balance and getting stumped in the process. Dickwella was so out of his crease that even an Alex Carey fumble provided him with no chance of returning to the crease.
Stars in a record run-chase at the R Premdasa Stadium on Sunday, Mendis and Nissanka couldn’t carry forward their form from the third ODI. While Mendis played on a Cummins delivery on to his stumps, Nissanka edged a cross-seam Marsh delivery to Carey behind the stumps.
