    AUS vs SL Today Match Prediction: Having sealed a 20-run win in what turned out to be a nerve-wracking encounter for both sides, Australia pulled a 1-0 lead in the 5-match T20Is and would be heading into the next fixture scheduled on February 13. It was a tricky match for sure, with Sri Lanka wreaking havoc on the World Champions and restricting them to merely 149/9 in 20 overs. Ben McDermott, who was roped into the T20I side post the herculean batting display in BBL 2021-22, scored a 41-ball 53 and along with Josh Inglis (23) and an explosive cameo from Marcus Stoinis (30) down the order, propelled the Kangaroos to what initially looked like a below-par total. In response, the Sri Lankan side could amass only 122/8 in 19 overs and eventually lost the battle owing to the DLS method. Josh Hazlewood (4/12) and Adam Zampa (3/18) grabbed mouth-watering figures to hand the hosts their first win of the year.  The action will continue at SCG, which will host the second match and offer a chance to the visitors to make a comeback in the series.

    AUS vs SL Today Match Prediction

    For Sri Lanka, bowlers were quite commendable with their economical shows, especially leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga, who picked a 3-wicket haul to his name, followed by pacers Binura Fernando, Chamika Karunaratne and Dushmantha Chameera, who grabbed two scalps each. It’s not as easy as it sounds, but all they have to do is marshall their batters to come up with a fighting show in the second T20I.

    As far as Australia are concerned, even without their key set of batters – Aaron Finch, Glenn Maxwell and Steven Smith – contributing in desired proportions,  the hosts had cruised their way to a competitive total in the last outing. Ben McDermott and Marcus Stoinis looked in a good nick at the top and middle-order respectively. Among the bowlers, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Adam Zampa form their core bowling attack, and alongside pacer Mitchell Starc – who would be backing himself for an improved show – they could pose an even greater threat in the next outing.

    Who will win today’s AUS vs SL Match?

    Full credits to Sri Lanka for restricting the hosts to a mere 149 in the last outing, which looked like a chase-able score on the wicket offered. However, their core set of batters – Danuska Gunathilaka, Avishka Fernando and Charith Asalanka –  have to elevate their gameplay for them to post a challenge to the hosts. It was a bit of a surprise for Australia to bundle out to a low total, considering they are heads and shoulders above the Sri Lankan side on a player-to-player basis. However, a champion side that they are, Australia would be backing themselves to come up stronger with the willow. According to AUS vs SL dream11 prediction, Australia will be the favorite to win this match.

    • Ben McDermott had a blast in the BBL 2021-22 and it is so heartening to see the top-order batter carry his form into the 5-match T20Is, with a 41-ball 53 comprising 2 fours and 3 sixes in the first outing. He’d be looking to extend his form and perhaps aid in a 2-0 lead to the Aussies

    • Wanindu Hasaranga looked in complete control in the conditions offered in the previous duel, for he scalped 3/38 which comprised the wickets of Aaron Finch, Glenn Maxwell and Steven Smith. The visitors would be banking on the leggie to uproot the bails at regular intervals and yet again restrict the Aussie side to what could be a chase-able total.

    Today pitch report: It’s a fairly high-scoring venue with 159 as the average first innings total across in the T20 Internationals. A bit of cloud cover is going to be of immense help to the bowlers. However, batters are likely to have the last laugh in this fixture.
