Sri Lanka after losing the T20 series came back strongly and has given a tough fight to Australia in their backyard. They have won the last game after the reduced overs in the game. They have had a complete turnaround and have grown in confidence after the first T20 game defeat at Colombo. Chamika Karunaratne and Dushmantha Chameera came in handy when they were defending a low total and bowled Australia out. The momentum is on their side and they will be looking to make amends in the capital city by taking the lead against the Aussies.
Sri Lanka Predicted Lineup
Pathum Nissanka, Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis (wk), Charith Asalanka, Dhananjaya de Silva, Dasun Shanaka (c), Chamika Karunaratne, Jeffrey Vandersay/Wanindu Hasaranga, Dunith Wellalage, Dushmantha Chameera, Maheesh Theekshana
The Aussies are struggling with the batting attack at the moment. Josh Hazlewood bowled only seven overs in the last game. The injuries have taken their toll on the performances of the players. They fell 26 runs short in their last game and are not performing as we expect them to do. Again a big ask will be from David Warner to steady the ship and take charge of the batting order for Australia. The slow pitch will be very difficult to bat on.
Australia Predicted Lineup
Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey (wk), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Kuhnemann, Josh Hazlewood
