Australia vs Sri Lanka Prediction 1st ODI
Australia is better ODI side than Sri Lanka in last few matches Australia performed well apart from one loss against New Zealand they had great ODI campaigns from last year they won seven consecutive ODI including 2015 world. And all the top players like Warner, Finch, Skipper Steve Smith are in good form and Mitchell Starc has done well after his returning from the injury.
Sri Lanka lost a number of ODI games series and matches they lost against England 3-0 then New Zealand defeated them and won the series by 3-1 at home and then they also lost another home series against Pakistan by 3-2. And Srei Lanka also thrashed out of the world cup in quarterfinals. Because right now Sri Lanka is finding difficulty because they have the least number of experienced players but now Dilshan has come back in this squad so Sri Lanka can hope something better in this series and tomorrow’s match.
Prediction: Australia will Win.
