Power Play scores:
Australian openers had a really good T20 series and they will look to carry forward that momentum in the ODI series as well. The visitors can put somewhere in the range of 65-70 runs on board in the first six overs. While Sri Lanka openers need to stay calm on field as they known for playing big shots but now they have to face the mighty Australian bowlers so they need to play a little defensive cricket. The host might score 60-65 runs during the power play overs.
Death Over scores:
Australian side has a bunch of solid power hitters in their line-up, and they can post 80-85 runs during the ten overs. While, Sri Lanka also have Dasun Shanaka and Wanindu Hasaranga who hold the ability to create big impact, and if they managed to do as per their calibre, so Sri Lanka might put 40-45 runs on board during the death overs.
Australian players are in good form and we expect them to score somewhere in the range of 290-300 if they batted first, while Sri Lanka might put 270-280 runs on board.
