AUS vs SL: Possible Sri Lanka Playing 11 for 1st T20I
Updated on: Feb 10, 2022 4:48 am IST
Sri Lanka playing 11: Sri Lanka won the T20I series when they toured Australia last time around but that was a long time ago and things have changed drastically since then. Sri Lanka are in a rebuilding phase but they have identified their core set of players which is the key thing. Sydney is one ground where they could find some help for their spinners and their batters would love the conditions on offer where there wouldn’t be much bounce either. Having said that, it won’t be an easy task for Sri Lanka against a full strength Australian side irrespective of the conditions.
- Danushka Gunathilaka is back into the squad and is set to open the innings along with Avishka Fernando.
- Wanindu Hasaranga has returned to the squad after missing the previous series and will play at #7.
- Binura Fernando is expected to partner Dushmantha Chameera with the ball with Chamika Karunaratne being the 3rd seamer who can also provide batting depth at #8. .
