AUS vs SL Dream11 Prediction: The 2nd of the five-match T20I series between Australia and Sri Lanka will be played on Sunday. Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) will host the match again and the home side will start as favorites. The Aussies registered 20 runs win under the DLS method in the opening game, courtesy of Adam Zampa and Josh Hazlewood, who picked seven wickets between them and will be looking to continue the dominance.

Sri Lanka were let down by their batters as they failed to chase down a below-par total after the bowlers did a commendable job of restricting Australia to 149/9 in 20 overs. The visitors will hope for a better show from batters in the coming matches to overcome the opponents.
