Through outstanding swing bowling over the past matches in Adelaide and Brisbane, Sri Lanka have positioned themselves so that in Sydney on Sunday they can become the first team ever to secure bilateral one-day series triumphs against Australia in Australia. South Africa have completed it one time, in 2008-09. So have Pakistan, in the winter of 2002. Sri Lanka did it with a 2-1 success in early 2010-11. But no team has completed it two times – yet.
Australia, this match is as much about regaining pride as it is about keeping the series alive. If their 170 in Adelaide looked bad, their 74 all out at the Gabba was as embarrassing as it gets in one-day cricket. Nuwan Kulasekara’s five for 22 was the best analysis ever achieved by a Sri Lankan in an ODI in Australia and it was a performance built on controlling and directing his inswing, and in lots of cases swinging it late. The conditions in Sydney won’t be as helpful, but after Friday’s performance Australia’s batsmen will be cautious of him all the same. ackson Bird has been added to Australia’s squad for this match as cover, as Ben Cutting was for the Brisbane game. But it is not Australia’s bowling that has been the issue, and Bird may find himself jogging the drinks if all the other speedy men are fit. Glenn Maxwell will come in to contention again after being left out due to the conditions at the Gabba, and might be jostling with Moises Henriques for the No.7 position.

Ajantha Mendis ought to be reinstated at the SCG after Sri Lanka’s selectors shrewdly judged the Gabba as a venue much friendlier to swing and seam. Shaminda Eranga would be the most likely man to miss out, having replaced Mendis for the Brisbane game. The fitness of Dinesh Chandimal remains a query but with Kushal Perera performing impressively over the past games, there is no need for Sri Lanka to rush Chandimal back if they is not prepared.Sri Lanka have not only won their past ODIs against Australia at the SCG, they have also won of the six the teams have played there this century. Ajantha Mendis needs victims to reach 100 ODI wickets & if they reaches the milestone in the coursework of this series they will be the quickest Sri Lankan to the mark. In the games (Tests & ODIs) Australia have played in 2013, they have used 23 players; Phillip Hughes is the only man to have taken part in all matches.
Pitch and conditions:
Both teams would be pleased the Sydney match was scheduled for Sunday instead of Friday, because while they were competing in Brisbane, the temperature in Sydney reached an all-time record of 45.8C. The forecast for Sunday is a much more pleasant 25C, with a shower or two possible.

Australia team in last match really upset against Sri Lanka they are in full pressure for win this match and save series but other hand SL team look and ready for though game with Aussies and hope they won match and take series with 3-1 of 5 matches. but lest watch match results and scorecard who will win this match?
