Sri Lanka – Australia Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 10:00

It increases the onus on Starc to give Australia an early breakthrough, something hell try by getting the ball to swing in massively into Karunaratne. With the Kennington Oval traditionally know to serve up pristine batting surfaces, this is a track Karunaratnewhile like batting on. An area where Karunaratne suffers is the ball which moves in the air and comes into him after pitching with his willingness to play on the back foot leaving him cramped for room at times.

Since the pitch here is expected to get a tad slower later on in the day, the team that wins the toss would want to make first use of the ideal batting conditions. Five of the last seven completed one-day internationals (including three out of the four in this World Cup) played at the Kennington Oval have been won by the side batting first.

Their bowling unit also performed well in this match and restricted all team of England to the 285 runs. They scored 297 runs on the board in their 50 overs. The Australian team showed their power and strength in their first warm-up match against England and now they had started their journey to the big event of cricket with a massive won over a strong team of this tournament. The batting order of Australia had an outstanding performance in this match. They lost the toss and were put into bat first. He scored 116 runs on 102 deliveries. Jason Behrendorff and Kane Richardson got two wickets each. Steven Smith smashed a superb hundred. Shaun Marsh and Alex Carey scored 30 runs each while Usman Khawaja had 31 runs in his account. David Warner was the second most successful batsman from their side who scored 43 runs.

However, it remains to be seen whether the team will take the risk of playing him. Nuwan Pradeep, who dislocated his finger in a training session, has returned to bowling in the nets. The veteran pacer, however, is expected to rejoin the team ahead of this upcoming clash against Australia. In case Pradeep misses out again, Suranga Lakmal will lead the Sri Lankan pace attack while leg-spinner Jeevan Mendis will get an extended run. Lasith Malinga had returned home after the last match against Bangladesh due to a death in his family.

However, Indias batting order did not let anything deter their spirit. Will It be one of those matches that go down in history? Will Sri Lanka follow on the footsteps of India and beat the Aussies? Lets find out what Ganesha has to say about the game. n the match against India, the Aussies were visibly struggling to break Indias rhythm. The defeat for Australia is undoubtedly a punch in the gut since they are the defending champions. Dhawan also managed to score a century.

Team Form in Last Five Matches (most recent first)

Sri Lankan team has been unlucky in this big event of cricket. Their next two matches, first against Pakistan and other against Bangladesh were abandoned without toss due to rain. They lost their first match against Australia with a massive of ten wickets but they won their second match against Afghanistan with 34 runs through DLS method. They had played four matches so far with just single win, one lost and their two matches were ended with no result.

Marcus Stoinis has been added into the side and may make his debut in this match. We think Australia may choose to rest Usman Khawaja for this match since he is a certainty on the trip to England. This is the last test that Australia will play before the Ashes and so getting runs is going to be very important.

Karunaratne batted well against the quality pace attack of the Kiwis and the skipper will be expected to make a sizeable contribution against Australia as well. Angelo Mathews and Kusal Mendis are the team's most reliable batsmen in the middle order. Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Perera smashed half-centuries against New Zealand and Afghanistan respectively and the onus will be on this opening pair to ensure that Sri Lanka gets off to a good start.

Who will win SL vs AUS?

Adam Zampa was dropped last time and replaced with Kane Richardson, and it will be interesting to see whether the Aussies bring back the former or continue with the latter. Australia made a couple of changes to their line-up in the previous game against Pakistan, one of which was a forced change with Shaun Marsh coming in to replace Marcus Stoinis who suffered a side strain in the game against India. Stoinis' availability for this match has not been confirmed yet which means Marsh is likely to get another opportunity.
