The Sri Lankan team will face the mighty Australians in the last match of the Test series on 8th July 2022 at Galle International Stadium in Sri Lanka. Australia have thrashed Lanka in the first Test match and will try to clinch the Test series to end up their tour to Sri Lanka on a winning note.

Australians are unbeaten in the last 9 Test matches and with 84 points from 6 wins and 3 draws, they are at the top position in the points table of the World Test Championship. On the other side, Sri Lanka have managed to win 3 matches out of 7 they played, and with 40 points, they are in 6th place in the points table.

After losing the T20 series of the tour, the hosts have made a strong comeback to win the ODI series and now they are eying to draw a Test series with a win in the 2nd match. Visitors, on the other hand, would try to maintain their unbeaten record by winning this last match of the tour which will start on Friday.

Sri Lanka Preview

Sri Lanka are looking to make a comeback in the second Test match after getting defeated in the first match of the series. Hosts will face Australia in the 2nd Test match at Galle International Stadium on Friday and will try to level up the series also.

After choosing to bat first in the first Test match of the series, Sri Lanka’s batting unit failed to put a decent score on the board. Despite Niroshan Dickwella’s 58 runs from 59 balls and Angelo Mathews’ 39 runs from 71 balls, no other batter could manage to settle up the innings. With the help of these knocks, the team has managed to put just 212 runs on the board.

While bowling in the first innings, with the help of Ramesh Mendis’ 4 wickets and Asitha Fernando’s 2 wickets, the bowling unit restricted opponents to 321 runs. After trailing in the first innings, the Srilankan batting unit collapsed in front of Australia’s bowling attack and got bowled out to 113 runs with a lead of just 5 runs. They lost the match in the first over of the second innings itself.

Although this squad has a good bowling unit, they failed to handle the pressure during batting. They need to execute their batting plans well on the ground against the Aussies if they want to level up the series by winning the second Test match.

Australia Preview

Aussies are looking dangerous in Test cricket after appointing Pat Cumins as their new captain. They haven't lost any match in the last 9 matches they played and are on the verge of another Test series victory in the sena country when they face Sri Lanka in the 2nd Test match at Galle.

The  Australian bowling unit delivered a superb performance in the first Test match and dismantled the Srilankan batting unit in both innings. The team’s prime spinner; Nathan Lyon picked up a 5-wicket haul in the first innings to restrict the opponent to 212 runs. Whereas Usman Khawaja (71 runs from 130 balls) and Cameron Green (77 runs from 109 balls) have managed to deliver with the bat in the first innings.

While bowling in the 2nd innings, the Australian spin attack could manage to take all 10 wickets and bowled out opponents to just 113 runs. Nathan Lyon again clinched 4 wickets and Travis Head has supported him by picking up 4 wickets for just 10 runs in 3 overs. The remaining 2 wickets were picked by Mitchell Swepson.

The mighty Australian unit has a well-balanced batting as well as a bowling unit that has been delivering superb cricketing skills throughout this World Test Championship tournament. They will now try to continue that momentum when they face hosts for the last time in this series on Friday.

Key players
David Warner, Usman Khawaja,  Mitchell Swepson, Nathon Lyon.

Australia Predicted Playing XI:

David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Steven Smith, Travis Head, Alex Carey (wk), Cameron Green, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins (c), Mitchell Swepson, Nathon Lyon.

Weather Conditions

The weather on the match day will be partly cloudy with 76% humidity. The maximum and minimum temperatures will be in the 31°C - 26°C range.

Venue Details

The venue for this match is Galle International Stadium in Sri Lanka. Many International matches have been hosted at this event in the past and this stadium can accommodate 35000 visitors.

Toss: To Bowl

At this location, whichever team wins the toss will want to ball first. It will be easier for the team to chase down the target in the second innings. Out of the last 5 Test matches played at this venue, 3 matches have been won by the team who chose to bowl first.

By looking at the current form of the players of both teams, Australia have an edge in this last fixture of the tour against Sri Lanka. Australia have managed to build a strong Test squad and they have delivered some fine cricketing skills in the last few matches. Sri Lanka on another side, are struggling to find winning ways in Test cricket and struggled in the 1st Test match also.
 

We predict that Australia will defeat Sri Lanka.
