Sri Lanka v Australia, Highlights of the 4th ODISri Lanka won the match by four runs to take an unbeaten 3-1 lead in the series. After giving Australia a target of 259, the hosts took wickets at intervals until 19 runs were required in the last over. Matthew Cohenman made things interesting by hitting three fours in the over to bring down the required five on the last ball. However, Dassin Shinaka helped the Australian batsman win his script by four goals by dismissing him. Earlier, Charth Asalanka scored his first ODI century and saved Sri Lanka from a top-order collapse before Australia bowled out their team for 258 in the fourth ODI on Tuesday. The hosts slipped to 34-3 after batting first, with fast bowlers Pat Cummins, Mitchell Marsh and spinner Matthew Cohenman taking two wickets each. Glenn Maxwell made his first off-spin attack and stumped wicketkeeper-batsman Narushan Dquilla for a run in the second over of the innings. Cummins soon sent Kosal Mendes back to 14 and the hero of the previous match, Patham Nasanka, fell to Mars for 13. But a 101-run partnership between left-hander Asalanka (110) and Dhananjaya de Silva (60) led his team to a respectable combination with a combination of caution and aggression. (Score card)
