Live Australia has set a 259’s tricky but incurable chase target to keep its five-match audio record alive. To save more than one.
After entering the fray with the team in 4/135, Aslanca survived a recent call-up while Pat Cumins survived by amputating his ankle just to keep his bail afloat.
The 24-year-old – who turns 25 in three days – adjusted the eclipse in the middle of the game, saw three wickets fall to the other end and was normally forced to control his free swing behavior, but surrendered his patience and master class. Stable to post the highest score with Australia in Sri Lanka No. 5.
Australia, however, fought to the death, with three cheap wickets in the 48th and 49th Overs to finish the Sri Lankan Innings prematurely – and could easily easily exceed 270 and 280.
After a 2-1 win over three ODIs, Australia must beat Sri Lanka Spin-heavy bowling line to victory over the dew and crafty Colombo Plates.

First Innings report
Sri Lanka, who broke the record 6-0 in the third ODI, lost to Sri Lanka and chose to enter the field earlier in the day as it struggled to get out of the dew.
While Australian hobbyists were unable to influence the same Colombo Peak match in the previous game, voters decided not to include Spinner Mitchel Swapson, but only re-introduced Pat Camin to Gie Richardson.
Australia started dreaming on the field, with 10 Overs Trio wickets in the opening round – three different bowlers finished their wickets.
First, Glen Maxwell scored in the second minute of the second half. Pat Cumins then took the lead in the seventh round, beating Sri Lanka 2-26 to clear the field.
Soon after, Mitch Marsh had the stunning Pathum Nissanka – a century-old in the third ODI – with easy-to-catching exterior-edge glove Alex Carey.
After more than 10 games, Sri Lanka was 3-35. But Dananjaya de Silva and Charity Aslanca stopped the ship and soon put Australia on its back foot, with the visitors pouring out the borders. Aslanka, however, was unlucky not to miss a single run, just as Pat Cummins’ amputated leg did not fall on bail – for the second time in his first 11 games after Cunningham’s ball went into the Wickets. .
Dhananjaya and Asalanka have shared a 100-run partnership with several balls, before Mich Marsh previously caught up with Dannyja (60 out of 61) and Glen Maxwell.
Charity Aslanca 50 passes, Captain Shanaka (4) played more than 20 of Sri Lanka 5-150 before finishing the next ball. Aslanka has since expanded its 50-run partnership with 19-year-old Dunit Welgege.
Welllage lost at 19 and was caught by deep-seated Spinner Matthew Cuneman, while Inings tried to speed up Sri Lanka 6-207 in 41st. Kuhmanman was later evaluated by Camika Karunaratne LBW (7) with a double bag, and convinced glove player Alex Kerry to turn captain Aaron Finch to DRS.
Aslanka increased his tally to 100 in just 99 yards, falling 110 out of 106 in the 48th. He was exhausted by the effort, and Aaron Finch had a long ball from Cummis.
Sri Lanka’s final defeat of Mahish Tekesha ended in a draw (0 lost 2) after a poor run between Cummis and Wickets before making a stunning poor decision to try to run in the 49th final. Sri Lankan star Wanindu Hassaranga returned from injury with a speed of 21 * 20 and Texas’ left-back was sent off.
Texana tried to run foolishly, and was run over by a replacement, Michel Sippson, who was prematurely finished innings.
Pat Cummins finished 2/37 to finish the race, while Mitch Marsh was 2/29 over seven. Matthew Kunman was 2/56 more than eight. Josh Hazlewood scored better than the 10/45 figure.
Preview and group news
For the first time since 2013, 291 Australia comfortably chased down the ODI victory, with the hosts leading the series 2-1.
Sri Lanka is currently on the brink of a successful ODI series victory at home to Australia since 1992.
Pat Cummins replaces Jihi Richardson with the only change from the final. This means that although Australia has decided to field only Matthew Cuneman (0/61 over 10) for the last time, he has no place for Spinner Michael Swapson.
“We suffered a few injuries during the visit,” Finch said, adding that the team should be comfortable with all the fans.
The dew on the field played a key role in helping Sri Lanka to chase after the third ODI wet ball rolling slightly and slipping in the evening.
In return, Australia won the tournament and chose to play first. “We need to chase better in these situations,” said Aaron Finch, emphasizing the team’s long-term growth ahead of next year’s World Cup.
Sri Lankan star Wanindu Hasaranga returns from injury after missing the last two games. He made the injured Dushmanta Chamera (ankle) the only change to the Sri Lankan XI, giving the hosts a front-run boiler and a full four-wheel drive.
