Match Preview

Sri Lanka tour Australia starts with the 3-match T20I series before the 3-match ODI series. Australia Women have been a dominant force in the shortest format and they are currently the No.1 ranked T20I team in the women`s division. Australia has dominated the T20I series against England and West Indies this year winning both series.

Sri Lanka Women`s team, on the other hand, is struggling to put some good performances in the T20I format. They are placed in the 8th position in the points table. Sri Lanka has lost both their T20I series against South Africa and England teams. They need to put some spirited performances to stand a chance against this formidable Australia team.

Teams Preview

Australia Women Preview

Australia is becoming one of the dominant forces in the T20I cricket and with T20I World Cup at their home next year; they are looking to seal their best team combination.

Skipper Meg Lanning has been very consistent with the bat and has scored her career-best of 133* against England this year. She has been piling up runs against every opposition and is in the sublime form off late. Alyssa Healy and Ellyse Perry are also amongst the runs chart this year and lending good support their captain in the batting order. Their bowling unit has been their stronger suit with their bowlers hunting as a pack. They have reduced the opposition team to below 130 runs in all their 5 victories this year. Megan Schutt and Jess Jonassen lead the bowling charts with 11 wickets each this year. Elyse Perry, Delissia Kimmince, and Georgia Wareham are consistent with the ball and troubling the batters by creating the run-rate pressure.

Key Players:

Meg Lanning – Meg Lanning is currently placed No. 2 in the batswomen's rankings. She is the leading run-scorer for Australia in T20I format with 2569 runs that includes 15 half-centuries and 2 centuries. Jess Jonassen – Jess Jonassen has taken 7 wickets in the 3 matches against West Indies a recently. She had dream match figures of 4/7 in the last match and helped the team with the match with ease.

Australia Women Predicted Playing XI:

Rachael Haynes, Megan Schutt, Alyssa Healy (wk), Meg Lanning (c), Ellyse Perry, Jess Jonassen, Delissa Kimmince, Beth Mooney, Ashleigh Gardner, Georgia Wareham, Erin Burns

Australia Women Actual Playing XI:

Meg Lanning, Georgia Wareham, Beth Mooney, Megan Schutt, Ellyse Perry, Jess Jonassen, Tayla Vlaeminck, Ashleigh Gardner, Alyssa Healy, Delissa Kimmince, Rachael Haynes

Sri Lanka Women Preview

Sri Lanka team`s fortunes in this format have been a big worry with their team losing 0-3 against England and South Africa recently. They have beaten by a huge margin all their three matches against England recently and their batting unit failed to cross 110-mark in all the matches. Hansima Karuratne top scored with 44 runs and only twice their batters crossed the 20-run mark in that series. Skipper Chamari Athapathu and Shasikala Siriwardene are getting starts but are not converting them into fifties to help their team post a good total. Their bowling unit accounted for just 5 wickets in the 3 matches and never posed any trouble to the batting unit. Chamari Athapaththu, Inoka Ranaweera, and Shasikala Siriwardene are only players to represent in the wickets column. Rest of the bowling unit has failed to make an impact on the team.

Key Players:

Chamari Atapattu – Skipper needs to lead from the front in both the batting and bowling departments with her performance. She needs to inspire her team to perform well against a strong Australian team. Shasikala Siriwardene – Siriwardene has been one of the prominent names in the Sri Lankan women`s cricket for a long time. She needs to bring her A-game this series to help their team win the crucial moments.

Sri Lanka Women Predicted Playing XI:

Shashikala Siriwardene, Chamari Atapattu (c), Dilani Manodara (wk), Oshadi Ranasinghe, Nilakshi de Silva, Harshitha Madavi, Hansima Karunaratne, Sugandika Kumari, Achini Kulasuriya, Inoka Ranaweera, Yasoda Mendis

Sri Lanka Women Actual Playing XI:

Hansima Karunaratne, Shashikala Siriwardene, Harshitha Madavi, Chamari Atapattu, Nilakshi de Silva, Yasoda Mendis, Udeshika Prabodhani, Ama Kanchana, Oshadi Ranasinghe, Anushka Sanjeewani, Sugandika Kumari

Pitch And Weather Conditions

Venue Details

Sydney Pitch is known to have a good balance between the bat and ball and runs will be scored freely once they are set. The only T20I match played here over 160 runs were scored by both teams.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option in the T20Is and Australia won all the three matches chasing against West Indies recently.

Winning Prediction

Australia team stands like a Goliath in front of the Sri Lankan team in terms of batting, bowling, form, momentum, and player`s experience. Sri Lanka will need to put a herculean effort to overcome this Aussie team. We expect Australia to win this match.

Australia will win the match and continue their dream run!
