Australia moved ahead with two points when they defeated Sri Lanka by 64 runs in the 32nd match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. The former hammered 376 runs for the loss of nine wickets and bowled out the latter for 312 with 22 balls still left in the game. The Kangaroos won three, lost one while another ended without any result and gathered seven points at a net run rate of +1.597. The minnows Scotland got a stick in all five matches they played and will most probably face another humiliation once they meet the Aussies in the coming encounter.
Glenn Maxwell dispatched his maiden ODI century in his 45th outing and smashed 102 off 53 mere deliveries vs. Sri Lanka. Steven Smith, Michael Clarke and Shane Watson chipped in with 72, 68 and 67 runs as Aaron Finch, David Warner and James Faulkner are dangerous with the willow on their day. Their strong bowling unit comprises Mitchell Starc, Mitchell Johnson, Xavier Doherty, Shane Watson, Maxwell and Faulkner.
Freddie Coleman along with Preston Mommsen were the top scorers for Scotland against Sri Lanka and Richie Berrington got 29. Only two batsmen reached the double figures which reflects failure in their technique while Kyle Coetzer, Calum Macleod, Matthew Cross and Matt Machan should count their deficiencies. Their bowling is being looked after by Josh Davey, Alasdair Evans, Rob Taylor, Michael Leask and Berrington.
