Share

SL Playing 11: Sri Lanka is here after winning the five games ODI series against Australia recently. The team looks confident and straightforward with their game approach. Sri Lanka whitewashed Australia in a three-Test series on their last visit in 2016. As the side is high on confidence, they will aim to repeat the history itself. 

Therefore, team Sri Lanka will look to whitewash the injured side of Pat Cummins-led team Australia. So far Sri Lanka and Australia have faced each other in 31 matches in Tests. Team Australia who is currently at the No.1 spot on the ICC World Test Championship 2021-23 points table has faced major injuries ahead of the series.

Hence, Sri Lanka would want to take the best benefit of it. On a precise note, team Sri Lanka has brought back some veterans to the side. Such players along with youngsters make Sri Lanka the strongest side.

However, both the teams will only see each other for just two-test series. Sri Lanka and Australia will lock horns in the 5 days 1st Test match from Jun 29 to Jul 03 at the Galle International Cricket Stadium at 10:00 AM IST.
