Sri Lanka v Australia

Sri Lanka and Australia face off in the fifth ODI international on Friday, June 24 at R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, so time to enjoy our Sri Lanka v Australia 5th ODI Cricket Betting Tips. After four matches, Sri Lanka has a 3-1 advantage over Australia, and the hosts beat the Australian national team on home soil for the first time since 1992. Australia will want to end their ODI series on a high to maintain some pride after a tough campaign in Sri Lanka. Can they notch a final match victory to cap their ODI series? To check out the fifth ODI, viewers can catch the action live from 10 a.m. on Sky Sports. 

Form and Team News

Despite making a winning start in the five-match series, Australia’s form has tailed off in the last three matches against Sri Lanka. The Baggy Green won the first ODI by two wickets, before Sri Lanka hit back to win the second match by 26 runs. Then, Sri Lanka took control of the series with back-to-back wins. The Lions won the third test convincingly by six wickets. Although, the fourth match was closer as Sri Lanka edged Australia in a hard-fought contest to win by four runs. The Aussies are now playing for pride in the final match in Colombo.

Looking at the team news, Sri Lanka’s all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga returned to the starting XI for the fourth ODI, and he is likely to start again on Friday. Australia’s injury problems mounted last time out when Travis Head suffered a hamstring injury. He joins Steve Smith and Mitchell Starc on the sidelines for the fifth ODI. 

Match Winner Bet Tip

Although they trail the series heading into the final match, Australia are still favoured by the bookies to end on a high. With the last three matches between Australia and Sri Lanka ending with marginal scores in favour of the hosts, there is still hope for the Baggy Greens to notch a second win of the series. Paddy Power have the best odds for an Australia win at 4/6. However, the Aussies are without some key players for the final match, and Sri Lanka will be desperate to add to their three-match winning run that sparked ecstatic scenes in Colombo last time out. With their home advantage and with a fully fit team to select from, we are backing the Lions to finish the ODI series in style with a victory. At 6/4, provided by Bet365, there is good value on a Sri Lanka win. 

Top Batsman Betting Tips

There has been no shortage of runs in this ODI series. Only two of the eight innings so far have produced less than 250 runs, which shows the quality of batting on show. As a result, there are some good picks in the top batsman market heading into the fifth ODI. Firstly, Australia’s David Warner played the best innings for his side in the last match, hitting 99 from 112 balls before being dismissed. After going out for a duck in his first innings of the series, Warner has produced 145 runs in his last three matches. At 7/2, offered by Paddy Power, there are decent odds for the Australian opener to be the match’s top batsman in the fifth match. However, there is better value on Sri Lanka’s Charith Asalanka. The middle-order batsman struck 110 from 106 balls to lead his side to victory in the fourth ODI. Asalanka has also shown consistency throughout the series, scoring 173 runs in total. Our tip is to back another strong Asalanka innings in Colombo at 14/1, provided by Betfair.
