Australia hope to end worst losing streak
Australia, on Sunday will be fighting to avoid setting their worst losing streak in history when they take on Sri Lanka in the third ODI at Brisbane. Sri Lanka's breakthrough tour began with a Twenty20 victory and was followed by a great escape in Melbourne.
They then ensured Sunday's final ODI would be a dead rubber with a controlled victory in Sydney on Friday. Sri Lanka are a highly professional outfit with men for any conditions, so not much will bother them at the Gabba.
Australia are currently on a seven-match losing streak in all forms of the game and they have never been defeated in eight straight international encounters. Michael Clarke is in charge of making sure that doesn't happen following Ricky Ponting's decision to miss the match to prepare for Tasmania's Sheffield Shield game on Wednesday.
