The Pallekele International Cricket Stadium will host the opening ODI of Australia’s current tour of Sri Lanka Today. Between a three-match T20I series and a two-match Test series, a five-match ODI series with no meaningful value in modern-day cricket will be played.

The hosts lost the T20I series 1-2, but a record-breaking triumph in the third T20I at the same venue should give them a lot of bravery and confidence going into the ODIs.
In contrast, despite losing a few players to injury, Australia will be seeking to maintain its dominance. Australia had beaten Sri Lanka in their last ODI in Sri Lanka to win the series 4-1 six years ago at the same venue. It’s also worth noting that this was the last time these two countries played each other in a bilateral ODI series.
Their most recent one-day international encounter was an ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 league match at The Oval, when Australia defeated Sri Lanka by an impressive 85-run margin.
Train & sweat it out 💪🏻
