    AUS vs SL Dream11 Prediction: With the series in the bag, Australia will be looking to clean sweep Sri Lanka in the third and final T20I as the series moves to Canberra. Both teams will square off at Manuka Oval, Canberra on Tuesday afternoon.  The hosts followed the 20 runs win in the first T20I with a win in Super Over as they go 2-0 up in the three-match series.

    Josh Hazlewood was once again the key for Australia as the right-arm medium pacer held his nerve in the Super Over to help the Aussies overcome Sri Lanka in a nail-biter in the second T20I. Both teams had finished tied on 164 but Sri Lanka could only manage 5 runs in their Super Over and Australia chased it down with three balls to spare.

    Batting has been the main concern for Sri Lanka. Barring four players, none of the Sri Lankan batters managed to score in double digits. With the potent bowling attack, the hosts will start as favorites again and an interesting battler is expected to take place.
