AUS Playing 11 for Sri Lanka vs Australia, 1st Test; 5 Best Fantasy Cricket Picks for Dream11 Team Prediction

Share

AUS Playing 11: Team Australia has struggled to win games in the ongoing Australia tour to the Sri Lanka series. The team lost their top players due to injury at the start of the tournament at the initial start. As a result, the side is by hook or crook trying to get a grip of the game. Australian pacer Starc could have been a match-winner for the team. 

But his finger injury has forced him to stay out of the game. On the other hand, Aussies’ top-order batters have seen a constant struggle to face Sri Lankan spinners. However, some new names have been added to the squad which could provide a balance to the team. Australia has called up Glenn Maxwell to the squad since 2017. 

Australia has won 19 out of 30 games against mighty Sri Lanka. Hence, the stats highly favors Australia. But the winning stats have the same chances of facing a downfall, as Sri Lanka’s are in their best form and shape. Both the teams will square off against each other in the 5 days 1st Test match from Jun 29 to Jul 03 at the Galle International Cricket Stadium at 10:00 AM IST.
