Colombo Cricket Stadium ODI Records: R Premdasa Stadium will host an ODI after more than nine months.
The third ODI of the ongoing Australian tour of Sri Lanka will be played tomorrow in Colombo. R Premdasa Stadium, which hosted the first two T20Is on this tour earlier this month, will now host three ODIs in a row.
With the series level at 1-1 after two ODIs, the third ODI becomes a fascinating prospect to support the fans of the island nation. Australia, who had won both Colombo T20Is, would look to find their way back to victory at this venue on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka are reportedly keen to bank on both home advantage and playing experience in this venue. In Colombo’s 117 ODIs over the years, the hosts have won 72 and lost 38 to have an impeccable record in this format here. Australia, for its part, would also like to improve its ODI record (seven wins and nine defeats in 17 outings) at Premdasa Stadium.
