  • AUS vs SL Dream11 Prediction : Australia and Sri Lanka are set to take on each other in the 19th Match of the World Cup. Australia did not really have a good start to the tournament as they faced a heavy defeat against New Zealand. No one really stood up for the Aussies in that encounter and they were really poor both with the bat and ball. On the contrary, Sri Lanka, put up a clinical show against Ireland and enjoyed a comprehensive victory by 9 wickets. Kusal Mendis played a special knock to help the reigning Asian Champions get over the line.

    Australia vs Sri Lanka Pitch Report

    The pitch at Perth is the fastest in the world. The pace and bounce of the pitch is bound to assist the fast bowlers. It is a typical Aussie wicket which would give the cliched “chin music.” As the innings progresses the pitch becomes flatter and the batters start to get the hold of the game.However, in the game between Afghanistan and England it was a tight game with low scores. The par score is expected to be around 160-170 runs.

    Last result at the venue

    England(113/5 in 18.1 overs) beat Afghanistan(112/10 in 19.4 overs) by 5 wickets.

    AUS Playing 11

    • Australia were dismal in their last game and need to deep dive into working on many areas.
    • Their batting failed to click and thus, might like to give Steve Smith an opportunity in the eleven as he is someone who can provide stability to the team.
    • Their bowlers were taken apart by New Zealand batters and would be eager to make a comeback.
    • They might take the last game as a one off and might go in with the same eleven against Sri Lanka
    • There are reports that Adam Zampa has tested positive for covid 19. He is unavailable and will be replaced by Ashton Agar.

    David Warner Stats in T20I

    The veteran left handed batter has always proved to be an essential part of the team. His style of play complements Aaron Finch and gives him the luxury to settle. He has by far been one of the most consistent batters for the defending champions.

    Mitchell Starc Stats in T20I

    The game against New Zealand was a bad one for all the Aussie bowlers and Mitchell Starc has the ability to bounce back after a poor performance. His performance will be key to get Australians back to winning ways on a bouncy Perth pitch.

    • Pathum Nissanka suffered from a groin injury and missed out on the clash against Ireland. He is fit for the game against Australia and returns to the playing eleven.
    • Sri Lanka have too many injury scares in this world cup and thus would not like to have anymore of that.
    • The Asian Champions must be banking on the likes of  Kusal Mendis, Charith Asalanka, Dasun Shanaka and Bhanuka Rajapaksa to do bulk of the scoring.
