AUS vs SL Dream11 Prediction: The fifth and final T20I between Australia and Sri Lanka will be played tomorrow in Melbourne. With the series in the bag, Australia will be looking clean sweep Sri Lanka when both teams will square off at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne on Sunday afternoon.  The hosts have taken an unassailable 4-0 lead in the five-match series.

The hosts were dominant again in the previous game and found their way to come out on top eventually registering 6 wickets win. Sri Lanka had their moments and positives but yet again failed to pull it off at the end. They have been competitive and had their moments in almost all four games played so far but haven’t managed to close it out at the end which has been the main reason for their disappointing show so far in the series.

Despite missing out on Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, and M Starc, the hosts will start as favorites again and an interesting battle is expected to take place.
