Australia won the the toss and choose to bowl against Sri Lanka in the first ODI at the RPS ground.

Australia will look to restore some battered pride when they begin their one-day series against Sri Lanka tomorrow, hoping that some fresh blood can help reverse a string of defeats on a miserable tour.

Days after losing their title as the world’s top Test team, the reigning champions in 50-over cricket will be determined to stop the rot when they take to the field in the first of five ODIs against an upbeat Sri Lanka. Angelo Mathews’ side completed a 3-0 series whitewash over the tourists on Wednesday when they won the final Test in Colombo by 163 runs, a result which led to Australia being toppled by India at the top of the rankings.
