AUS vs SL Dream11 Prediction: With the series in the bag, Australia will be looking to extend the lead when they face off Sri Lanka in the fourth T20I as the series moves to Melbourne. Both teams will square off at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne on Friday afternoon.  The hosts followed the 20 runs win in the first T20I with a win in Super Over win in the 2nd T20I before they sealed the series with 6 wickets win in the third T20I.

The hosts were dominant again in the previous game and restricted the visitors at a low total of 121/6 and chased down the total in the 17th over with 6 wickets in hand. Batting has been the main concern for Sri Lanka. Barring three 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.

Who will win Australia vs Sri Lanka today match?

As per AUS vs SL today match prediction and Australia vs Sri Lanka cricket betting tips, Australia is once again favorites to win the fixture. The hosts have sealed the series 3-0 and will be aiming for a clean sweep. Wanindu Hasaranga’s unavailability due to testing Covid positive further strengthens Australia’s chances of a clean sweep. The batting too has been the weak link for the touring side and the likes of Dinesh Chandimal, Charith Asalanka, and Kusal Mendis need to take charge if Sri Lanka hopes to overcome the opposition.
