Australia will enter the Adelaide match with a 1-0 lead over visitors Sri Lanka who suffered a moss by Australia “B” team at the MCG.
The Adelaide conditions will favour the tourists since they are spin friendly but Australia have great momentum at this stage. Ajantha Mendis will be crucial in the spinning conditions and he was a major disappointment in the 1st ODI as he went for a ton of runs.

The first ODI was dominated and won by the hosts with a big margin of 107 runs and leading the series with 1-0. They will now look for another consecutive victory by keeping their winning pace. Phillip Hughes’ century helped him to get a permanent spot in the ODI team and gained back his confidence. Acting series’ captain, George Bailey also performed outstanding to show his capability to lead his side. On bowling Clint McKay was the best performer for the Australian taking 4 wickets for just 33 runs from his 8 overs. Mitchell Johnson gave him perfect support taking 2 wickets for 43 runs from his 9 overs.
