How the Teams Stand:
Sri Lanka may have already lost this ODI series but they have to win this one dayer or at least make it a close fought match as they approach the test series. The batting really needs to improve before the test series and Sri Lanka keep showing the public that without the top four batsman they are nothing so they will have to prove the critics wrong. Malinga has been the 3rd highest wicket taker out of the series to date and this will be his last game against Australia in this tour as he retired from tests so he would like to go out of this match with a bag of wickets. Chamara Silva has failed with the bat all series and if doesn’t get his act together this match with big score his international career could be over. It maybe a dead rubber for Sri Lanka but they defintley need some confidence from his match for the upcoming test series.
In the 4th ODI Australia had a lot of controversy behind the scenes before the match but the wiped the slate clean and sealed the series with a great performance smashing the 2011 World Cup runner ups. The series stands at 3-1 at the current moment but that will change in this 5th ODI and Australia deserve to win this final match to make it 4-1. The bowling has been feared by Sri Lanka and Australia have successfully diffused the top four from Sri Lanka well. Bollinger, Lee, Johnson and Doherty all stand in the top five bowlers according to wicket taking ability. Only Johnson of those will play in the tests so he needs to impress in this match to carry on his confidence. Shaun Marsh will want to finish this series off with another big score as he and Khawaja fight for a test place.
