Australia vs Sri Lanka Betting Predictions

  • In the last 10 T20Is played between both these nations, Australia has the clear edge (7-2).
  • The Optus Stadium has a bouncy track with good movement off the seam, especially in the initial overs. If the batters can look past those overs with caution, there are a lot of runs to be made.
  • The toss will be crucial. The toss-winning captain will likely field first due to the nature of the track. Also, in the last 10 T201s between the two sides, the chasing team has won on eight occasions.
  • It will be overcast conditions, but the skies are likely to hold up on matchday. Bowlers will look to utilize the bounce off the surface; however, you can also expect good runs once the batsmen are settled.
  • Key players for Australia would be David Warner and Josh Hazlewood. The Perth track will be conducive to pace, which should give Hazlewood the edge. Warner rules the batting rivalry against Sri Lanka, which you will find in the stats section below.
  • Key players for Sri Lanka would be Dhananjaya de Silva and Chamika Karunaratne. Chamika’s pace and bounce would be vital for Sri Lanka. Dhananjaya, on the other hand, is in good touch, and he will have to play the role of a sheet anchor.

Though Sri Lanka is capable of spinning a surprise, we are backing Australia to win this match because of the sheer dominance of their pace bowlers, who would utilize the surface to the fullest.

Australia vs Sri Lanka: Team News


  • The defending champions were dealt a huge blow in their first match against New Zealand. However, they shouldn't read much into it as their recent performances against Sri Lanka have been great.
  • Josh Inglis has been ruled out of the tournament and replaced by Cameron Green. He might open the innings in this match.
  • Aaron Finch might come down the batting order as he hasn't been at his marauding best in the powerplay overs.
  • Pat Cummins has been quite expensive in the past few matches.
Australia Probable XI

Cameron Green, David Warner, Aaron Finch (C), Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Tim David, Matthew Wade (wk), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood

Sri Lanka

  • Though they had a disastrous start to the tournament against Namibia, they bounced back with three consecutive victories.
  • The Sri Lankan squad is battling with injuries. Fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera and middle-order batsman Danushka Gunathilaka have been ruled out of the tournament. They have been replaced by Kasun Rajitha and Ashen Bandara, respectively.
  • Opener Pathum Nissanka also sustained an injury in the last match and is unlikely to play. In that case, Ashen Bandara will open the innings.
  • Their middle order is wobbly, to say the least.
  • Since the Perth wicket tends to favour pacers, Maheesh Theekshana might be replaced by Kasun Rajitha for this match in an attempt to bolster their pace battery.
Sri Lanka Playing XI

Kusal Mendis (wk), Ashen Bandara/ Pathum Nissanka , Dhananjaya de Silva, Charith Asalanka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Dasun Shanaka (C), Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Maheesh Theekshana/ Kasun Rajitha, Binura Fernando, Lahiru Kumara
