After winning the T20I series 2-1, Australia defeated Sri Lanka by 2 wickets (DLS method) in the first ODI on Tuesday to take a 1-0 lead in the 5-match series. However, Sri Lanka have bounced back since then and won a couple of matches to take a 2-1 lead. They won the second match by 26 runs (D/L method) before winning the third by six wickets. One more win can give the hosts an unassailable lead before the fifth match which will be played on June 24. The high-intensity fourth match will be played at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo from 2:30 PM IST.
Overall, Australia and Sri Lanka have played a total of 100 ODIs against each other. While Australia have emerged victorious on 62 occasions, Sri Lanka have won 34 times. Sri Lanka have now won two out of their last five matches against the Aaron Finch-led team. Prior to the start of the series, Sri Lanka have last won in an ODI match against Australia in 2016.
As we gear up for the fourth ODI, I have brought to you the best three betting tips from the SL vs AUS 4th ODI head-to-head encounter.
Mentioned below is the top team bet from the SL vs AUS head-to-head contest.
Sri Lanka might have won the last two matches and taken a 2-1 lead but expect the Australian team to bounce back on Tuesday. The Aaron Finch-led side will look to come all guns blazing to save the series. The team has scored decent runs and bowled well and all they need is more intent from their top-three batters. The strike rate has been an issue and Australia will look to address the issue. David Warner and Aaron Finch are two world class openers and it won't be a surprise to see them tearing apart the Sri Lanka batting line-up in a must-win situation.
Pathum Nissanka (137) and Kusal Mendis (87) starred for Sri Lanka in the last match and have been consistent for their team so far in the series. The two are also the leading run-scorers in the 5-match series, however others have disappointed. Nissanka have scored 209 runs, while Mendis 207 but what should be noted is that Danushka Gunathilaka, who has scored 73 runs in two matches, is the next highest run-scorer from Sri Lanka. Glenn Maxwell has top-scored for Australia with 143 runs and Finch has accumulated 120 runs. Travis Head, Alex Carey and Steve Smith has scored 93, 85 and 81 runs respectively. It's clear that one solid partnership at the top will cause problems for Sri Lanka. Also, the early wickets of Nissanka and Mendis can have same repercussions. Australian bowling unit consisting of Josh Hazlewood, pat Cummins and Jhye Richardson will also be giving their best in the must-win game for their team. If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match to grab the odds of 1.46 and place your bet on Australia to win from the SL vs AUS head-to-head encounter.
