ICC World Cup 2019: AUS vs SL Dream11 Captain: Why focus on Warner, Karunaratne, Finch?

By Chaitanya Laxman

After playing some tough cricket, Australia have managed three wins in the ICC World Cup 2019 but the good thing is that the team has held on its ground whenever being challenged.

On the other hand, Sri Lanka is having a difficult time in the tournament and in the form of Australia, they have another challenge. This contest is in favor of Australia but for the Dream11 captain, the choice isn’t that easy.

To make things simple, here are the top three picks for this game.

#3. Dimuth Karunaratne:

The Sri Lanka captain has done well in the limited chances he has received so far in 2019. Importantly he has led from the front and his runs will be crucial for Sri Lanka.

Batting average in 2019: 79.50

Total runs in 2019: 159

Total number of fifties in 2019: 2

Batting average in England: 43.00

Total number of fifties in England: 1

#2. Aaron Finch:

The Australian captain has regained his mojo and is scoring crucial runs at the top of the order. Although he hasn’t got a big knock yet, he looks good to get one sooner than later.

Batting average in 2019: 51.50

Total number of hundreds in 2019: 2

Batting average in England: 38.52

Total number of hundreds in England: 1

Batting average versus Sri Lanka: 27.00

#1. David Warner:

There is no stopping to David Warner. He may have not reached his usual fifth gear of batting yet but importantly he is scoring consistently and is scoring big runs.

The Sri Lankan bowling attack will have to be at their best to stop the Warner mayhem.

Batting average in 2019: 85.00

Total number of hundreds in 2019: 1

Batting average in England: 45.72

Total number of hundreds in England: 1

Batting average versus Sri Lanka: 37.37

Total number of hundreds vs Sri Lanka: 3
