AUS vs SL: Possible Sri Lanka Playing 11 for 3rd T20I
Updated on: Feb 15, 2022 11:15 am IST
Sri Lanka playing 11: Sri Lanka came really close in the 2nd game when the odds were against them after losing the first game pretty comprehensively. They showed great character and their captain led from the front with the bat to take their team, almost to the safe waters. They were quite unlucky with one of the wides that was not given. Pathum Nissanka was the star with the bat for Sri Lanka. He started slowly but maintained a good pace and was largely helped by the quick cameo by Dasun Shanaka. Sri Lanka would need better performance from their spinners who are not living up to their expectations.
- Binura Fernando was replaced by Nuwan Thushara who was pretty bad to say the least in the 2nd T20I
- Avishka Fernando must open the innings along with Pathum Nissanka for Sri Lanka.
- Chamika Karunaratne has been extraordinary with the ball in the last 2 games. He will continue to be their lead all rounder in this game.
- Wanindu Hasaranga has been ruled out of the game due to Covid.

Who are Dream11 captain, vice captain picks for Australia vs Sri Lanka from SL?
- Pathum Nissanka is the leading run getter in the series from both the teams. He is a good option for vice captain in small leagues.
- Dushmantha Chameera took 4 wickets in the series and in the absence of Wanindu Hasaranga, he will have to be at his absolute best.
