AUS vs SL Fantasy Prediction: Australia vs Sri Lanka on Monday, Check Fantasy team, Playing XIs, Injury Updates & Pitch Report for the Match 14 of ODI World Cup 2023

Match 14 of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 will be played between two struggling teams – Australia and Sri Lanka, at Lucknow’s Ekana Cricket Stadium on Monday, October 16. Both Australia and Sri Lanka have lost their first two games and are looking to get off the mark. 

Sri Lanka lost their first game to South Africa after being at the receiving end of the highest total in World Cup history (428). But commendably, they gave a good fight in the chase, with three of their batsmen scoring a half century. Eventually, however, they fall short by 103 runs. In their next game against Pakistan, centuries by Sadeera Samarawickrama and Kusal Mendis took Sri Lanka to a first innings total of 344, but the bowlers were not able to defend it. 

Australia, on the other hand, have lost both their games largely due to poor performances by their batsmen. In their first game against India, Australia were bowled out for just 199, which the Rohit Sharma-led side chased down in 41.2 overs. In their next game against South Africa, Australia were bowled out for 177 in their chase of 312. They will now be looking to break the losing streak when they take on Sri Lanka, a team they’ve beat eight out of 12 times at the World Cup. 

Ahead of match 14 of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, here is everything you need to know.
