After three consecutive victories in test matches, the Sri Lanka cricket team got a lot of confidence but in their first ODI match at R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo JP Faulkner and MA Starc dismissed seven Sri Lankan batsmen.
Sri Lanka’s first wicket down at 3 seconds at 45. Sri Lanka scored 227 runs in 50 overs with eight wickets down, 228 runs target was not so good that’s why Australia won by 3 wickets with 19 balls remaining.
Now it will be much difficult to win more matches for Australia from today’s match because Sri Lankans are now much attention and also they have the danger of loss in the ODI series.
