Moon Of Liberty Cricket – SL v Aus ODI game 5



ODI Game 5 – Sri Lanka v Australia

Australia completed their one day series victory over Sri Lanka with a 5 wicket win in Pallekele. Sri Lanka batted first with nobody getting past the thirties. Danushka Gunathilaka top scored with a mere 39 as Mitchell Starc took 3 Wickets restricting the hosts to just 195. Opener David Warner’s century ensured the Aussies were on top from the start. He eventually was out for 106. Despite three wickets for Dilruwan Perera the Sri Lankan’s never put enough pressure on as Australia coasted home with seven overs to spare and take a 4-1 series win which turns around their poor Test showing in which they were whitewashed. It appears their grasp of the Asian conditions came too late for the Test Series but just in time to command the one day contests.
