Sangakkara quietly confident ahead of ODIs

Kumar Sangakkara knows his side has the momentum and he is aware Australia are struggling, but he is not getting carried away with the idea of leading Sri Lanka to their first series victory in Australia. The visitors dominated Sunday’s Twenty20 match in Perth and on Wednesday they will begin their 50-over campaign against an Australian outfit missing Ricky Ponting.
Only South Africa have a better win-loss ratio than Sri Lanka in 2010, while Australia are sitting third, despite their disappointing recent form. The Sri Lankans are the third-ranked ODI side but they can jump into second position if everything falls into place during this series, even if South Africa beat Pakistan in the UAE.
