Rain once again played a negative role in the Sri Lanka v Australia, 2nd ODI. In the previous match, it benefited Australia, but this time, it didn't because the Sri Lankan bowlers failed to spare the Australian batsmen and prevented them from easily reaching their objective. After snapping a four-game losing trend against Australia in their most recent men's ODI match, Sri Lanka will now try to win back-to-back matches against them.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing XI

Sri Lanka performed well in all areas and succeeded. Their self-confidence will be high after winning. Despite the fact that Kusal Mendis, Dhananjaya, and Shanaka were batting at a very high rate, the Australian bowlers were able to keep the score low. 

They used a very aggressive bowling strategy, giving no chance for the other team to take advantage. By getting crucial wickets of people who might have posed a threat to the team, Chamika Karnaratne went above and beyond to make Sri Lanka win. The team will wish to follow the same winning trend in upcoming matches.

Playing XI: Dasun Shanaka (c), Pathum Nissanka, Danushka Gunathilaka, Charith Asalanka, Kusal Mendis (wk), Dinesh Chandimal, Wanindu Hasaranga, Nuwan Thushara, Chamika Karunaratne, Dushmantha Chameera, Maheesh Theekshana.

Australia Team News & Playing XI

They were unable to play an entire overs match because of the persistent rain, which only allowed them to score 220. Australians made a strong start, but they couldn't withstand the bowling attack of Sri Lanka. Despite their excellent batting from David Warner, Steve Smith, Travis Head, and Maxwell were destroyed by Lakans bowlers.

Australia has to focus on the areas where they performed poorly and compromised their chances of winning the game. To put his team on a winning streak, the captain must play a captain's innings. Similar to that, Alex Carey and Marnus Labuschagne must make some accurate shots to raise the score.

Playing Xi: Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Glenn Maxwell, Steven Smith, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Mitchell Swepson, Josh Hazlewood, Marnus Labuschagne, Pat Cummins, Ashton Agar
