Australia will be squaring up against Sri Lanka in match 22 of the T20 World Cup 2021 at the Dubai International Stadium in Dubai. The match will commence on Thursday, October 28 at 07:30 PM IST. Here are our AUS vs SL Dream11 predictions, preview, squad, and predicted XI.
AUS vs SL Dream11 Predictions: Preview
Can Australia continue the winning run?
Australia put in a clinical performance against South Africa in their opening game. Their lower middle order bailed them out of a tricky run chase. But it was their bowlers though who setup the victory in the first place. They stuck to hard lengths and played their matchups to perfection. Australia would want more from their top-order. Their openers look woefully out of form. Australia need David Warner and Aaron Finch to fire for them to progress to the next round.
Will the Lankan lions scrape through the Aussie challenge?
Sri Lanka chased down a formidable total against Bangladesh in their opening Super-12 game. Not many expected them to win the game chasing a total of 171. Lanka have a good side for these conditions. They will count on their spinners to tackle the Aussie batsmen. If they bring their top game to the table, they will surely pose problems for Australia.
