With the series tied at 1-1 after two ODIs, the third ODI promises to be an exciting possibility for the island nation’s supporters. Australia, who had won both T20Is in Colombo, will be hoping to continue their winning ways on Sunday at this venue.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka would like to take advantage of their home advantage as well as their previous experience playing at this site. Over the years, the hosts have won 72 and lost 38 ODIs in Colombo, giving them an unblemished record in this format. Australia, on the other side, would like to improve their ODI record at the Premdasa Stadium (seven wins and nine losses in 17 games).
