Australia Legends shall start their campaign in the Road Safety World Series T20 2022 as they take on Sri Lanka Legends. The Australians had played only one game last year and they would look to make a mark and give fans a peek into their glorious past.  The Sri Lanka Legends were runner-up last year and they would be aiming for a good show and earn their first points of the tournament.     
Australia Legends has a strong bowling attack, and this would be a big advantage for the side. They have excellent hitters of the ball, and they shall look to score quick runs. Sri Lanka has players who know the conditions well and they would like to take advantage of it here. We expect to see a good contest between the bat and the ball in this game.

Tillakaratne Dilshan shall aim to make a perfect start to the tournament as they take on a strong opponent in their opening game.

Sanath Jayasuriya and Tillakaratne Dilshan form a strong opening pair and the side would like to see a good start from them in this game. Chinthaka Jayasinghe and Upul Tharanga shall have to do well in the middle order and set up a good platform.

Australia Legends Preview

Shane Watson would be leading the side for this tournament.

Weather Conditions

We expect to see clear skies over Kanpur on September 11, and this would make conditions good for batting. The pitch hasn’t been a batsmen’s paradise as the ball has stopped a bit on the surface. We expect another close contest between the bat and the ball where a score of 160 runs would be a good one to defend.

Venue Details

Green Park, Kanpur is a good ground for batsmen who are selective with stroke making. The odd ball stops on the batsmen, and the spinners have done well at this venue. The straight boundaries are long and hence batsmen must time their shots well at this venue.

Toss: To Bowl

Defending scores has never been easy at this venue, and we have seen big run chases here in the past. The conditions would be good for batting right throughout the game. The side winning the toss would look to bowl first and restrict the opponents to a small total.

Australia Legends would have a massive challenge on their hands. Most of their players haven’t played in these conditions for a while and it might take some time for them to get settled in. Their batsmen will have to play important roles for the side to win in this contest. The Sri Lankans know the conditions well and they have a strong bowling attack. This would make them favorites over Australia in this game.
