AUS vs SL Dream11 Prediction Today Match, ODI World Cup 2023, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI, Pitch Report for 14th Match

Cricbuzzteam, AUS vs SL, Australia after facing tough losses to South Africa and India, is gearing up for a crucial match against Sri Lanka. The 14th game of the ICC ODI World Cup is set to take place at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow on October 16th at 2 pm. What’s interesting is that both Australia and Sri Lanka have had a tough start, losing their first two matches.

Australia’s last game against South Africa was a bit of a shocker. They lost by a big margin of 134 runs, which is the largest loss they’ve ever had in a World Cup match. South Africa batted first and scored a strong 311 runs, with Quinton de Kock scoring a century. Australia’s bowlers Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Starc took two wickets each, but their batting crumbled, managing only 177 runs. Even Marnus Labuschagne’s efforts with 46 runs couldn’t save the day.

On the other side, Sri Lanka couldn’t defend their total of 344 runs against Pakistan. They batted first and saw Kusal Mendis and Samarawickrama score centuries, pushing their total past 300. But Pakistan’s Abdullah Shafique and Mohammed Rizwan played incredibly, helping Pakistan win by six wickets. Sri Lanka had already suffered a 102-run loss to South Africa in their first match.

These two teams clashed in June in Colombo, where Australia won by just four wickets. In the final match of the five-game ODI series, Sri Lanka set a target of 161 runs for Australia, with Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins taking two wickets each. Alex Carey played a crucial role, scoring an unbeaten 45 to guide Australia to victory after they had a shaky start at 50 for four wickets. However, despite this win, Sri Lanka claimed the series 3-2.
