The second ODI at Adelaide Oval is thus very important and may end up to be the series decider, keeping in view the Australians' resilience and determination to command the series.
For today's match, Australia have replaced Ben Hilfenhaus with Clint McKay and for Sri Lanka, Chamara Kapugedara comes in place of Dammika Prasad. Hilfenhaus and Pattinson, together went for 95 runs in nine overs on Sunday and may be wanted for a repat performance.

The opposing teams for today's match are:
