Sri Lanka vs Australia recent form
Fresh off a disappointing two-wicket loss to the Aussies, Sri Lanka’s recent run of form has been troubling, to say the very least. While they did win the final T20I of the three-match series, the travelling side had already clinched the series by winning the first two matches.
As far as their form in the 50-overs cricket is concerned, the Australia series has been their first assignment since January 2022 when they defeated Zimbabwe 2-1.
For Australia, before beating Sri Lanka in the shortest format, they lost the three-match ODI series against Pakistan 1-2.
Sri Lanka: L, W, L, L W
Australia: W, L, W, W, W
Sri Lanka vs Australia head-to-head
The Sri Lanka vs Australia head-to-head record in ODI cricket is outrightly dominated by the latter, who have won 62 of the 99 50-over matches in the past. The Lankan Lions, on the other hand, have won just 33.
Interestingly, Australia have won each of their last five ODI matches against Sri Lanka. In fact, since 2015, Sri Lanka have won just one of their last eight 50-overs matches against the Aussies.
Sri Lanka: 33
Sri Lanka vs Australia prediction and cricket betting tips for 2nd ODI
Sri Lanka’s middle-order frailties were entirely exposed by an experienced Australian bowling attack in the first ODI. Despite making a stable start, with each of their first three batters scoring half-centuries, the team crumbled from 211/4 to 300/7. If not for Wanindu Hasaranga’s last charge, the total could have been even lower.
As such, Australia have a full-fledged squad at their disposal and it comes as no surprise that they are the odds-on favourites.
