Match Preview

The opening match of the tour was one of the humiliating defeat for the Sri Lanka team in terms of losing margin. Australia dominated them right from the first ball and never allowed them in the game. Sri Lanka (99-9) fell short of David Warner`s score (100) by one run in the first match.

Australia will definitely have the upper hand over the Sri Lanka team both form-wise and mentally.

Teams Preview

Australia Preview

Australia scored a massive 233 runs in their quota of 20 overs courtesy of David Warner`s century and half-centuries from Glenn Maxwell and Aaron Finch. David Warner and Aaron Finch`s opening partnership of 122 runs set up the tone of the match and Sri Lanka could never recover from there. Glenn Maxwell then took the charge after Finch`s dismissal with his brutal 64 runs off just 28 balls. He smashed 3 sixes and 7 boundaries in his knock. All the top three batsmen scored runs at a strike rate of 175+.

Australian bowlers ran through the Sri Lankan batting with almost all the bowlers sharing the wickets. Spinners Ashton Agar and Adam Zampa had combined figures of 8-0-27-4. Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc chipped in with 2 wickets each.

Key Players:

David Warner - David Warner scored a century in his comeback international T20I match and set the field on fire with his stroke play. He scored 10 boundaries and 4 sixes in the match.
Adam Zampa - Zampa picked three wickets in the middle overs and gave away just 13 runs in his 4 overs. Zampa`s ability to beat the batsmen in flight and air will yield him a lot of wickets.

Australia Predicted Playing XI:

Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Ashton Turner, Alex Carey (wk), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa

Sri Lanka Preview

Sri Lankan team had a nightmarish outing in their first T20I match. Skipper Laith Malinga called for the batsmen to adjust to the Australian conditions after they failed miserably. They ended with just 99 runs in their 20 overs for the loss of 9 wickets. Dasun Shanaka was the top scorer with just 17 runs. No batsmen batted for a long period to settle and make a mark in the match.

Their bowlers were brutally assaulted the Aussie trio Finch, Warner, and Maxwell. They were left clueless against their attacking batting style. Dasun Shanaka and Lakshan Sandakan picked up a wicket each but did not make any big impact. Kasun Rajitha ended up with the worst figures in the T20I history with 4-0-75-0.

Key Players:

Kusal Mendis - Mendis must take responsibility as a senior player and score consistently for the team. He must give good starts at the top to set the tone of their batting.
Nuwan Pradeep - Nuwan Pradeep had decent figures of 4-0-28-0 in the match despite all the Sri Lankan bowlers taken to cleaners. He must take wickets to trouble the opposition team.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing XI:

Kusal Mendis, Danushka Gunathilaka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Kusal Perera (wk), Oshada Fernando, Dasun Shanaka, Wanindu Hasaranga, Lakshan Sandakan, Nuwan Pradeep, Isuru Udana, Lasith Malinga (c)
