AUS vs SL 2nd ODI Live Score: Aussies won the toss & opts to bowl first

AUS vs SL 2nd ODI Live Score: The ferocious on-field battle between the Men in yellow & the Islanders has begun with the toss. Visitors won the toss & have opted to bowl first in the second ODI of the series. However, the injury spate has forced Australia to make changes to their Playing XI.

The left-arm spinner Mattew Kuhnemann makes a debut for Australia after receiving a maiden call-up to the ODI squad in place of injured Marcus Stoinis who has suffered a severe side strain. Kuhemann has been included in the ODI squad on the back of his stunning figures of 3 for 43 produced while playing for Australia A side in their list A match against Sri Lanka A side last week in Colombo.

Meanwhile Travis Head returns to the ODI squad in place of Ashton Agar who is out of this match due to a side strain. Travis Head smashed 110 runs for Australia A during that same match in Colombo. With Mitchell Swepson coming in for the second ODI, Australia rested pacer Jhye Richardson to strengthen their spin department considering the spin-friendly conditions in the Island Nation.

On the other hand, Sri Lanka made a single change to their Playing XI after facing a loss in the first ODI. Lanka opted for legspinner Jeffrey Vandersay to replace Wanindu Hasaranga, who is out with the groin strain he picked up in that previous match. Rain is a possibility in the mid of the match, howsoever the conditions at Pallekele were clear at the time of toss.
