Sri Lanka will have a chance to go on the top of the ICC ODI Championship table for the first time in their history if they manage to beat Australia 4-1 or better in the five-match One-day series, which begins in Pallekele on Wednesday.
India, meanwhile, will remain static at number three shot in the table with 117 points.
Four-time world champion Australian team, which has been holding the top spot since September 2009, currently is on 130 ratings points and leads second-placed Sri Lanka by 12 ratings points.
However, Sri Lankans will take a lead of one ratings point if they win the series 4-1, while they will move eight points if they manage a whitewash
