As evidenced by the fourth match, the pitch at R Premadasa Stadium has become difficult for batting. The spinners are benefiting from the wicket, and scoring against them has been difficult. Both teams may try to be aggressive during field restrictions and score as many runs as possible with the new ball. The captain who wins the toss may elect to bat first.

Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the match: David Warner
Pocket-dynamite from Australia During the fourth ODI, David Warner was the only batter who appeared to be at ease. The left-handed batter hit a perfect 99, but his team was unable to win the game. Warner is at ease against both spin and pace and will look to make an impact in the final ODI.
Probable best bowler of the match: Dunith Wellalage
Dunith Wellalage, a left-arm spinner, has bowled well in the 50-over series. The 19-year-old has six wickets at an average of 26.50 in four matches. He also took Mitchell Marsh’s wicket in the previous match and is currently ranked second in the series for most wickets.
