SL vs AUS ODI head to head: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the first SL vs AUS ODI.
The first ODI of the ongoing Australia’s tour of Sri Lanka will be played at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium tomorrow. A five-match ODI series with no real reward in modern-day cricket will be played in between a three-match T20I series and a two-match Test series.
Although the hosts ended up losing the T20I series 1-2, a record-breaking victory in the third T20I at the same venue should provide them with a lot of courage and confidence ahead of the ODIs.
Australia, on the other hand, would be looking to continue with dominating form in spite of losing a few players to injuries. It was at the same venue that Australia had defeated Sri Lanka in their last ODI in Sri Lanka to win the series 4-1 six years ago. Readers must note that it was also the last time these two teams had locked horns against each other in a bilateral ODI series.
Train & sweat it out 💪🏻
