AUS vs SL: Match Prediction

AUS vs SL Match Prediction: On Tuesday, October 25, at the Optus Stadium in Perth, match 19 of the ongoing T20 World Cup will feature Australia and Sri Lanka. Australia’s Super 12 campaign did not exactly get off to a good start as they were defeated by New Zealand by a score of 89 runs in their first game. On the other side, Sri Lanka’s Super 12 debut saw them thrash Ireland by 9 wickets and put on an outstanding overall performance.


The T20 World Cup 2021 match between Australia and Sri Lanka will be aired live on the Star SportsNetwork or you can watch live streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.


  • Match: 19TH Match of T20 World Cup 2022
  • Date & Time: 25th October (Tuesday), 7:00 PM IST
  • Venue: Perth Stadium, Australia.


The batting-friendly Optus Stadium in Perth is where the hitters will attempt to score many runs once more. The fact that the surface bounces very well will encourage the pacers to alternate short and long balls. The bounce of this wicket will enable the batters to play their shots with assurance. Games played here often end with a score of 162 runs.

Predicted Playing Eleven

Australia: Aaron Finch(C), David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Steve Smith, Matthew Wade(wk), Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa, and Mitchell Starc.

Sri Lanka: Dasun Shanaka (C), Ashen Bandara, Kusal Mendis(wk), Dhananjaya de Silva, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Charith Asalanka, Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Binura Fernando, Lahiru Kumara, and Maheesh Theekshana.


Since both teams’ starting lineups feature powerful hitters, both teams will want to build on their early-game success by scoring a significant number of runs over the extra innings. As they try to score 55 to 60 runs in the first six overs of the powerplay, Australia may lose one or two wickets. On the other hand, Sri Lanka might score 40–45 runs in the powerplay.


Because both teams have powerful, destructive hitters who may change the course of the game at any point. Death overs are not an issue for either team. Australia may score 45 runs or more in the final few overs. The Sri Lankan team, on the other side, would aim to score more than 30-35 runs in the final overs.

Who Will Win The Match

After their disappointing performance in their most recent game, Australia will want to improve in many areas. The New Zealand hitters annihilated their bowlers, and their batting faltered. Australia will therefore be attempting to forget about that setback. And based on their head-to-head record, it appears that they are the favorites to Win in this game.
