Sri Lanka vs Australia ODI Series 2022


The cricket governing body of Australia, Cricket Australia has planned to travel to Sri Lanka to contest 5 ODI matches bilateral series with Sri Lanka from 14 June to 24 June 2022. Australia visited Sri Lanka in 2016 for 5 ODI series where Australia defeated Sri Lanka very badly with a margin of 4-1. Now, Australia is again coming back to play the 5 ODI series with Sri Lanka after 6 years. All 5 ODI matches will be held at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Kandy, and R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo. Pallekele will host 2 and Premadasa is decided for 3 ODI matches.

SL vs Aus ODI series 2022 will begin with the first match which will be played on 14 June at Pallekele and 2nd on 16 June at the same stadium, then both the teams will move to Colombo for the remaining three matches which will be conducted on 19, 21, and 24 June at R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo. Australia will visit Sri Lanka under the captaincy of Aaron Finch whereas Dimuth Karunaratne will hold the command of the Sri Lanka squad. Currently, Australia is at the 3rd position in the ICC ODI team ranking and Sri Lanka holds the 8th position in the list.
