Prediction for the 2nd ODI Sri Lanka vs Australia.

Prediction for the 2nd ODI Sri Lanka vs Australia. Which team will triumph in today’s match between Sri Lanka and Australia?

On June 16, Sri Lanka will face Australia in the second One-Day International (ODI) at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Kandy. The hosts must win this game after suffering a heartbreaking two-wicket loss in the rain-affected first game despite posting a strong total of 300 batting first. While the bowlers tried their level best to derail the Australian innings, they could not maintain consistency till the very end.

The Australians, on the other hand, had an ordinary day with the ball, but their batters made up for it brilliantly, with skipper Aaron Finch and Steve Smith taking the initiative after explosive opener David Warner was dismissed early. Even after the duo was sent back to the pavilion, the middle-order batters remained focused. While all-rounder Marcus Stoinis kept the run chase steady in the middle overs, Glenn Maxwell provided the finishing touches despite running out of partners at the other end

Pitch Report

The Pallekele surface is known to help both batters and bowlers. While the batters can expect a run-fest once they are well-set at the crease, the spinners will enjoy a lot of turn on this track as the ball gets older, and batting here in the second innings could be difficult. However, with rain expected on match day, the captain who wins the toss will prefer to bowl first.

Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter of the match: Glenn Maxwell

Glenn Maxwell was Australia’s unsung hero in the previous game. The dasher destroyed the morale of the Sri Lankan bowlers at the tail end of the run chase by tormenting them single-handedly with his batting performance. Maxwell had only the tail-enders for company in the end, but he remained unaffected. On 80 runs from 51 pitches, the power hitter remained unbeaten.
