Sri Lanka will play Australia in the fourth ODI in a five-match series at the R.Premadasa Stadium on Sunday.

Sri Lanka trounced the Aaron Finch-led side by 6 wickets in the third ODI of the series to grab a 2-1 lead in the five-match series, and they will need to keep up their momentum in the fourth ODI to win the series. Sri Lankan opener Pathum Nissanka, who hit a brilliant century to help his team beat Australia in the third One-Day International, was the hero of the match.

The fourth match will be critical for both teams, as Sri Lanka will be looking to win in order to take the series, while Australia will need to win in order to stay in contention.

Power Play scores:

Given Sri Lanka’s top three hitters’ current form, the hosts might score 50-60 runs in the power play overs. Australia, on the other hand, can post in the 60-65 range.

Death Over scores:

Sri Lanka features skipper Dasun Shanaka and reliable all-rounder Chamika Karunaratne, both of whom have a reputation for hitting runs swiftly; if they can live up to that reputation, the hosts might score 65-70 runs in the final 10 overs. In contrast, Australia’s lineup includes a number of powerful power hitters, and they might score 80–85 runs in the final ten overs.

Overall scores:

Sri Lanka’s openers, particularly Pathum Nissanka, are in fine form; aside from openers, their middle-order batsmen are also inspiring confidence, and the hosts might score between 290 and 300 runs. The visitors are capable of scoring between 280 and 290 runs.

Who will win Today’s match between AUS Vs SL?

After losing the T20 series and the first ODI against Australia, the hosts Sri Lanka came back strong in the third and fourth ODIs to win the series 2-1. They are in good form and can give a good competition to Australia who must be a little low on confidence.
