Kusal Mendis has scored 223 runs across the four games of the series and he is our tip for Sri Lanka’s highest run scorer in this ODI. With the ball, Wanindu Hasaranga took 1-52 in his return to the side on Tuesday. The spinner is a strong choice for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker in this game.
David Warner scored 99 runs from 112 balls in the fourth ODI. The left-handed opener is our pick for Australia’s highest run scorer in the fifth ODI. Pat Cummins took 2-37 and bowled a maiden in his first game back after being rested. The Australia Test skipper is well worth backing as Australia’s top wicket taker against Sri Lanka.
Australia’s openers have both played well in individual ODIs during this series. We fancy both David Warner and Aaron Finch to both hit 3+ fours in this game.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11
SL Team News
There was one change for Sri Lanka ahead of the fourth ODI on Tuesday. Pace bowler Dushmantha Chameera missed out with swelling on his ankle and was replaced by spinner Wanindu Hasaranga who returned from injury. We expect to see an unchanged XI for the hosts ahead of this final game.
SL Key Players
Kusal Mendis - Although the top order batter could only make 14 runs from 21 balls on Tuesday, he still hit a four and a six. He is averaging 111.50 in the series.
Pathum Nissanka - The right handed batter has scored a century and a fifty across the series. With 220 runs from four games he is the second highest run scorer on both sides.
Wanindu Hasaranga - The spinner showed his importance to the side with both bat and ball in the fourth ODI. He hit 21 not-out from 20 balls before dismissing the dangerous Alex Carey.
SL Team Form
Sri Lanka have won three ODIs on the bounce and are targeting their fourth successive ODI victory for the first time since November 2015.
Pace bowler Jhye Richardson was rested for the fourth ODI and we expect him to come back into the Australia XI for this game. Josh Hazlewood has been impressive with the ball but we predict he will be rested ahead of the Test series.
AUS Key Players
David Warner - The aggressive batter was one run away from bringing up his 19th ODI century when he was stumped on Tuesday. He has scored exactly 5600 runs in this format.
Jhye Richardson - The pace bowler was the pick of Australia’s bowlers in the third ODI and the attack looked weaker without him in the fourth game. He took 2-39 on Sunday.
Pat Cummins - Irrespective of the format, Cummins is an integral part of the Australia XI. He dismissed Kusal Mendis and Charith Asalanka in the fourth ODI.
AUS Team Form
Australia have lost five of their last six ODIs. There has not been much between the sides in this series but they have been unable to get over the winning line in recent games.
