Until now both these teams are looking good and they are giving tough competition to each other. In the first one-day match Australia won by three wickets with the help of Aaron Finch blazing inning and it was low scoring match Australia restricted Sri Lanka on 227 runs and won that match.
In the second one day, Sri Lanka came back strongly and they posted 288 runs with the help of Kusal Mendis 69 runs off 69 balls, Angelo Mathews 57 runs 60 and Kusal Perera 54 runs off 53 balls and Australia unable to stand front of the Sri Lankan bowling attack Amila Aponso pick up 4 wickets and gave just 18 runs and Thisara Perera pick up 3 wickets in 33 runs. Matthew Wade was the only batsman to able stand front of the Lankan bowling attack.
Australia vs Sri Lanka Prediction
Both teams are looking good till but bowlers are dominating this series till now and batsman finding difficulty in this series, Australia, and Sri Lanka, not a single time played their full overs. Kusal Mendis is the only batsman in this series who scored half-centuries in both matches.
So Sri Lanka can rely on him and Amila in his second match only impressed everyone with his bowling and Angelo Mathews is also in good form so Sri Lanka is looking better on another side Australian bowlers Mitchell Starc and James Faulkner consistently bowling well and giving tough time to a batsman.
Australian batting line-up also looks solid but they loose their wickets at a wrong time and they are finding difficulty against spin bowling and Sri Lankan bowlers have home advantage and they are also familiar with a pitch because of that Sri Lanka have a little upper hand in Australia. Hence Sri Lanka Will Win.
