Australia begins their season at home with the first T20 against Sri Lanka being played on Sunday at the Adelaide Oval. With the T20 World Cup 2020 in mind, Australia looks to identify its best combination in the forthcoming weeks.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka comes into this tour on the back of a sensational clean-sweep over Pakistan in their own backyard. With the addition of Lasith Maling and Kusal Perera strengthening the side, Sri Lanka should give Australia a run for their money. Although Australia is the clear favourites for this game, the last time these two sides met in a T20 series, Sri Lanka came out victorious courtesy of Asela Gunaratne's sensational performances
