Who would have thought the fourth ODI between Sri Lanka and Australia will be abandoned due to rain?After a slight slump while batting the Aussies recovered brilliantly thanks to the heroics of Mitchell Starc who made a brilliant 52 of just 37 balls giving the aussies a much needed finishing touch to their innings which helped them boost their score to 222.This match looked to have all the makings of  having a close finish when compared to the last match where the Australian batting failed miserably.Sri Lanka batted for around 3 overs making 14 runs before the rain eventually came down and after a brief inspection by the umpires the match was abandoned.
