After bagging the series in the previous game, the home side Sri Lanka will also want to completely dominate and win the fifth match of the ODI series. The last ODI match between Sri Lanka and Australia will be played on June 24th (Friday) at R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.

The visitors somehow managed to lose the previous game after limiting Sri Lanka to just 258. However, the home side bowled with disciplined lines and lengths while batting wickets at regular intervals. It remains to be seen whether Australia can win the final game of the series before the focus shifts to Test cricket.

pitch report

The pitch at R Premadasa Stadium is tough to beat as we saw in game four. The spinners get support from the wicket and were difficult to score against. Both teams could appear aggressive during field restrictions, trying to get as many runs as possible with the new ball. Skipper who wins the toss may try to bat first.

Probably playing XI

Sri Lanka

Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis, Dhananjaya de Silva, Charith Asalanka, Dasun Shanaka (c), Chamika Karunaratne, Wanindu Hasaranga, Jeffrey Vandersay, Maheesh Theekshana, Dunith Wellalage

Australia

Likely top performers

Probably the best hitter of the game:

David Warner

Australia’s pocket dynamite David Warner was the only slugger comfortable during the fourth ODI. The left-hander hit an excellent 99 but failed to win the game for his team. Warner is comfortable against both spin and pace and will look to go big in the final ODI.

Probably the best shooter of the game:

Dunith Wellalage

Left-arm spinner Dunith Wellalage bowled well in the 50-over series. The 19-year-old has scalped six wickets in four games with an average of 26.50. He also took the wicket from Mitchell Marsh in the previous game and currently sits second for the most wicket list in the series.
