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.

Players to watch

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.

  1. Australia will be looking to hone in Home here in a hurry! Scotland have not put up a challenge all tournament and the bigger concern for Australia here is time. The weather is patchy at Hobart. There have been intermittent showers that have stopped the game.

    If the rain comes down before 20 overs of the Australian innings then the match will be called off as Duckworth Lewis is only applicable after 20 overs. A draw or a loss would result in Australia playing South Africa in the quarter finals instead of possibly Ireland or Pakistan. A draw would result in Australia and Sri Lanka having the same points and despite the fact that Australia have a better Net Run Rate, Sri Lanka will stay at the number 2 spot behind New Zealand. This is because before NRR, when points are equal, number of wins are taken into account & given preference.

    Since Sri Lanka will have more wins than Australia if the latter's game against Scotland is not completed, they will hold fort at 2.
