Australia vs Sri Lanka 2nd ODI on 13 Jan 2013.Aus vs SL 2nd ODI live cricket score online results highlights videos replay team news pitch ground condition live TV broadcast updates channels list details here.Having silenced the critics – who labelled them as a second-string side – with a big win against Sri Lanka in the opening ODI, Australia will be looking to extend their domination as they head to Adelaide for the second match. The visitors, on the other hand, have their work cut-out as they look to prevent the hosts from taking a further lead in the series.
Despite the absence of Michael Clarke, Shane Watson, David Warner and Matthew Wade, the ODI outfit, led by George Bailey, got off to an wonderful start with a thumping 107-run victory in the first of the dayers against Sri Lanka. Phil Hughes made most of the chance with a well-compiled century in his debut ODI. Stand-in skipper Bailey came nice with the bat at Melbourne, providing the fire-power. With the Australian selectors deciding not to include Michael Hussey in the ODI system of things, David Hussey was the key man in the Australian middle order and they showed why with a splendid knock that powered Australia to a score in excess of 300 at the MCG. Bailey will be hoping for a similar hard work from his batsmen and will expect the ones who failed in the opening game – Aaron Finch, Usman Khwaja and Glenn Maxwell – to come nice with the bat. With a number of the senior members expected to return for the third ODI, this game may be the only chance for the likes of Khwaja and Finch to showcase their prowess.
The visitors were utterly disappointing in the concluded Check series that Australia won 3-0, & their lack-lustre display has continued in to the limited overs game with the Lankans showing no signs of improvement whatsoever. of the main reasons for their failure is the performance of the batsmen. While Upul Tharanga & Mahela Jayawardene fell after they pushed at deliveries out-side off, what was even more dreadful was the jogging between the wickets & poor judgement shown by the Sri Lankan batsmen, which resulted in run outs. While Dinesh Chandimal’s sturdy presence & Dilshan scoring a half-century might be positive signs for the visiting team, the shortage of intent on the part of the other batsmen, is something that skipper Jayawardene will be worried about.
They will be demanding better application from the batters, including himself, failing which, Sri Lanka’s tour of Down Under will only go further down & under.Despite the presence of Lasith Malinga & Ajantha Mendis, the Lankan bowling department failed to make any kind of impact. Barring Dilshan, who bowled tight overs, all the other bowlers had economy rates on the high. Malinga, Ajantha Mendis, Jeevan Mendis & Thisara Perera, gave away lots of runs – 194 runs came off 28 overs bowled collectively by these. Kulasekara & Mathews did not concede as much, but they lacked the sting. The bowlers need to step up a few notches & the batsmen also need to give something for their bowlers if Sri Lanka stand any chance of levelling the series.

Venue: at Adelaide
Sri Lanka’s main concern will be that their in-form batsman Chandimal has injured his hamstring and the status of his availability for the 2nd ODI is still not known. Sri Lanka may hand a debut for Kushal Perera in case Chandimal is ruled out. With both Ajantha and Jeevan Mendis conceding quite a lot of runs, Sri Lanka might also think of bringing in Rangana Herath.
It was a really great team effort to stand up on the back of some criticism from outsiders and some people who weren’t sure if we were up to it: George Bailey reacting to comments of the current Australian squad being called a B-team.
When you’re chasing a score like that, you just can’t have the guts of your batting taken out through run outs: Sri Lanka coach Graham Ford wants the Lankan batsmen to show better judgement while running between the wickets.
