Sri Lanka has found their way back into the ODI series after losing the T20s and has shown what a great side they are. Although they lost the last game, the spirits will be high as they will now face Australia in the test series. Due to the good performance in ODIs spinner Jeffrey Vandersay has been included in the team and their spin attack will be the one to look out for in this series. The big guns Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal, and Kusal Mendis have come back for the red ball and will be the key men to look out for in the series.
Sri Lanka Predicted Lineup
Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Pathum Nissanka, Angelo Mathews, Kusal Mendis, Dhananjaya de Silva, Dinesh Chandimal, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Chamika Karunaratne, Lasith Embuldeniya, Jeffrey Vandersay, Kasun Rajitha
Australia has had few concerns about the injury which has caused them to lose the ODI series. Now in a different format and with a few veterans returning it will be interesting to see how they handle the spin attack by Sri Lanka. The inclusion of Steve Smith is a major boost to the side. Australia with their spin attack in hands of Lyon and Swepson will be interesting to watch.
Australia Predicted Lineup
David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey (wk), Cameron Green, Pat Cummins (c), Josh Hazlewood, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Swepson.
