Australia vs Sri Lanka ODI series preview

Despite Australia winning the recent T20 series, Sri Lanka will come in with their tails up thanks to Dasun Shanaka's knock steering them to victory in the last game. Sri Lanka scored a record 59 runs off the last 3 overs.

Sri Lanka vs Australia

Sri Lanka have won their last 2 ODI series. Australia versus Sri Lanka is only Australia's third ODI series since late 2020.

With a ODI World Cup next year, both sides will be looking to this as good preparation for the long road ahead. If injuries don't claim more of the Australian side, the visitors should manage to win the series. This will especially be the case if some of their big names find their feet returning to the ODI arena. But the home side, looking to impress with a new coach, will certainly make them fight for it.
