    AUS vs SL Probable Top Performers

    Probable Best Batter

    DAVID WARNER

    The swashbuckling southpaw was the player of the tournament in the last T20 World Cup. He has an incredible record on home turf and is expected to be the anchor in this Australian line-up, otherwise filled with power hitters. If Australia is to get to a competitive total, he must bat through the innings, and for that reason, he could well be the top scorer for this match.

    AUS vs SL Prediction- Who Will Win Today’s Match Between AUSTRALIA And SRI LANKA

    • On the batting front, both teams are quite strong. Australian batters are more experienced, whereas, in terms of current form, Sri Lankan batters clicks often more.
    • Sri Lankan openers have been in fine form lately, and it could be a huge miss for Sri Lanka if Pathum Nissanka misses this match as well.
    • On the bowling front, both teams are evenly balanced with Sri Lanka having better spinners.
    • Aussie batters except Warner and Maxwell are not good players of spin. The final outcome of the match will depend on how the Australian batters tackle the 8 overs of Theekshana and Hasaranga. But the fact that the match is being played in a pace-friendly Perth may benefit the Aussies.
    • The trio of Starc, Cummins, and Hazlewood has an outstanding record in Australia, and is no match to the Sri Lankan pace battery who are without Chameera.
    • The last time these two sides faced off against each other in a T20I match, Sri Lanka defeated Australia by 5 wickets.
