Sri Lanka VS Australia 2019 WORLD CUP MATCH NO. 20 : PLAYING XI, PITCH REPORT & PLAYERS UPDATE

Image result for sri lanka vs australia

So far in the tournament, Sri Lanka have been part of only one completed fixture where in they did pretty well. Their top-three were brilliant with the bat, but they found themselves struggling at 180-odd total with seven wickets down. Their bowling, however, did exceedingly well in wrapping Afghanistan well before knocking their total down.

All in all, considering that Sri Lanka were far from favorites in their last two matches, the washouts might have done more good than harm to the Sri Lankans. While they now need to win most of their games, they are coming after having a good break which could be a blessing in such a big tournament.

It won’t be wrong to say that the Aussies have been on a roller-coaster ride considering the way they’ve performed in the tournament. Not only their results speak of that, but their performance in the last match was also one good example of that.

Defending 307 on a surface which was excellent for batting would have needed a perfect plan, and the Kangaroos executed their plan to perfection.  They have done well in all three departments of the game and are looking hungry for more wins and consequently yet another title win.
