After thumping the hosts England by 12 runs in the first warmup game, Australia will reload at The Rose Bowl Stadium in Southampton to play their second warm-up game against Sri Lanka on Monday afternoon.

J Behrendorff and Kane Richardson returned with 2 wickets each while the rest four bowlers returned with one wicket each. Going with the current form, they will be favourites to win the contest.

Fantasy picks from Australia-
Dawid Warner, Steve Smith, Aaron Finch, and Shaun Marsh will be the key batters for the side.
Steve Smith smashed a ton in the previous game against England and is in an excellent form. In last four innings, Smith has slammed three fifties and a ton. Also, he has amassed 230+ runs in seven innings against Sri Lanka
Dawid Warner is carrying his IPL form and fell short by 7 runs from slamming a cracking fifty against England. Against Sri Lanka, he has scored 598 runs at an average of 35+ in sixteen innings
Aaron Finch has slammed two fifties in seven appearances against Sri Lanka
Kane Richardson and Jason Behrendorff bagged two wickets each in the last game against England.
Mitchell Starc and Adil Rashid didn’t bowl against Sri Lanka. The duo can get a game.
Fantasy picks from Sri Lanka-
Skipper Dimuth Karunaratne and Angelo Mathews scored the fifties against South Africa in the first game
Angelo Mathews averages around 30 against Australia and two thirties in last three innings against the opposition
Kusal Mendis can be another crucial batter as he has notched two fifties in five games against Australia
Lasith Malinga who missed the first game is a must-have pick in bowling as the veteran has bagged 47 wickets in 27 games against Australia. In last five innings against Kangaroos, Malinga has taken nine scalps.
