Australia defeated South Africa in their T20 world cup opener after Aussie bowlers restricted a batting-heavy Proteas to 118-9. However, batting seems a major concern for the Kangaroos as they had to sweat to chase South Africa’s total. Josh Hazelwood, Pat Cummins and Glenn Maxwell produced an excellent bowling performance and never gave any freebies. Marcus Stoinis and Matthew Wade took the Aussie team over the line in the final over. Aaron Finch’s team struggled against Proteas spinners Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi. Australia needs to handle Lanka’s spin to stay in action. Mitchell Starc fitness for today’s match is a matter of concern for team Australia.
Sri Lanka is on a roll in this tournament with back-to-back wins in the group stage and Super 12. Sri Lanka won against Bangladesh in the first Super 12 and pulled off a memorable chase of 172 quite comfortably in the end. Asalanka(80) and Rajapaksa(53) batted with high confidence and took the game away from the Tigers.
Australia and Sri Lanka played 16 T20Is, and both won 8 games. Australia managed to gain the upper hand over Lanka recently. David Warner and Glenn Maxwell had an excellent record against Sri Lanka when they hammered the Lankan bowling attack in 2019. Warner is struggling with his form of late and wants to get back his rhythm against Lanka.
