Colombo Weather Today: The SportsRush brings you the weather forecast for the fourth SL vs AUS ODI.
Australian bowlers have reciprocated captain Aaron Finch’s decision to go first after winning the fourth ODI draw against Sri Lanka in Colombo today.
All-rounders Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh and fast bowler Pat Cummins teamed up to brush aside Sri Lanka’s top-order of Niroshan Dickwella (1), Kusal Mendis (14) and Pathum Nissanka (13).
Opening the bowling alley with Josh Hazlewood, Maxwell drew first blood in his first on himself. Dickwella, who wanted to oppose Maxwell, found himself in a tricky position after losing his balance and becoming bewildered in the process. Dickwella was so out of his crease that even a fumble from Alex Carey gave him no chance to get back into the crease.
Stars in a record-breaking chase at the R Premdasa Stadium on Sunday, Mendis and Nissanka couldn’t keep up their form from the third ODI. As Mendis played to a Cummins delivery on his stumps, Nissanka edged a cross Marsh delivery to Carey behind the stumps.
