Aus vs Sl T20 World Cup: Australia’s litmus test against Sri Lanka, defending champions risk exit

Perth: Australia team will face Sri Lanka (AUS vs SL) in their second match of T20 World Cup 2022. The current champion team had to face a crushing defeat by 89 runs at the hands of New Zealand in the first match. He will have to win to keep his semi-final hopes alive. On the other hand, Sri Lanka defeated Ireland in the first match of Super-12. The Asia Cup champions, who suffered an upset against Namibia in the group stage, have since won three matches in a row.

There is no change in the playing eleven

Australian all-rounder Mitchell Marsh has indicated that the current champions Sri Lanka will play with the same playing eleven against New Zealand in the previous match. New Zealand openers Finn Allen (42) and Devon Conway (92 not out) took the match away from the hosts with their blistering batting as their fast bowlers bundled out Finch’s side for just 111 runs to seal a huge victory.

Marsh, who contributed just 16 runs in the opening match, also said that the defending champions have no choice but to make a comeback. Marsh said, ‘I think to my knowledge we will go with the same playing XI as expected and move forward. It (the loss to New Zealand) was obviously a disappointing start. It was a big blow for us as a team.

There is also trouble for Sri Lanka

Like Australia, Sri Lanka’s batting also has question marks. The team has won three matches in a row but these victories have come against UAE, Netherlands and Ireland. The team’s batting failed against UAE. Kusal Mendis also proved to be a troublemaker for the team against Netherlands and Ireland. The middle-order batsman is completely calm. Australia will have to work hard to face this bowling.

Match in Perth

Australia and Sri Lanka will play at the Perth Stadium in Perth. So the start will be at 4.30 pm Indian time. Afghanistan had so far defeated England in the T20 World Cup 2022 match held on this ground. Sam Caron took 5 wickets in the match. The pitch is considered a paradise for fast bowlers. In such a situation, the road is not going to be easy for Sri Lanka. Australia has won 11 of the last 13 T20 matches between the two teams.
