AUS vs SL

AUS vs SL Today Match Prediction: The 5-match T20Is between Australia and Sri Lanka is almost done and dusted, still, one could assume there’s some action left to be unearthed as the two sides take on each other in the fifth and final T20I on February 20 at MCG. Australia, led by Aaron Finch, are leading the series by 4-0, and banking on their all-round show, they look comfortable to enforce a win and eventually a whitewash in the final feud. Sri Lanka’s batting woes cost them the fourth T20I, as they amassed only 139 with opener Pathum Nissanka’s 46 as the top score for the visitors. In response, Australia, in spite of a few minor hiccups from the top-order, chased the target while riding on the knocks from Glenn Maxwell (48*) and Josh Inglis (40). One last match on the tour, Sri Lanka would be aiming to put an end to their agony with a win on their shoulders.

Today match score: MCG boasts an average first innings total of a mere 137 from the last three T20Is. Not a high-scoring ground, so somewhere around 150-155 could be a par total for this fixture.

Today pitch report: As was visible in the last outing, the wicket at MCG is going to help both the set of batters and bowlers. Some amount of cloud cover should help the pacers in getting the early swing. Batting second is likely to be the preferred choice as 8 out of 14 matches have been won by the chasing side.

Australia vs Sri Lanka Time Table: AUS vs SL 20 February at MCG in Melbourne.
