Sri Lanka eye fifth win on the trot as Australia hope to iron out batting woes

Former champions Sri Lanka will look to exploit Australia’s top-order woes when they clash in a Group 1 Super 12 match of the ICC T20 World Cup in Dubai on Thursday.

Sri Lanka, who had won the title in 2014, topped group A with three successive wins before outwitting Bangladesh by five wickets in their first Super 12 match.

On the other hand, the Aussies, who are yet to win the T20 World Cup, scampered home in the last over against South Africa after being reduced to 38 for 3 while chasing a modest 118 in their opening match.

Skipper Aaron Finch made a duck, while David Warner, who is going through a tough time, too was out cheaply once again and Mitchell Marsh also found the going tough.

Hello and welcome to our coverage of the T20 World Cup!

Sri Lanka are in good form, having won the three matches in Round 1 to top their group and beaten Bangladesh in the Super 12 stage opener. But now they face their most difficult test yet, against the Australian side on Thursday. Stay tuned for all the latest updates, the live score and more!

Australia vs Sri Lanka, Latest Updates, T20 World Cup 2021: 

Sri Lanka are in good form, having won the three matches in Round 1 to top their group and beaten Bangladesh in the Super 12 stage opener. But now they face their most difficult test yet, against the Australian side on Thursday.

Preview: Australia come into the match confident after beating South Africa by five wickets in their first Super 12 game. The Aussies started the game strongly with the bowlers restricting the Proteas to just 118/9, but were made to work hard in the chase as the top-order failed in unison.

Steve Smith (35 off 24) stabilised the innings before Marcus Stoinis (24 not out off 16) won them the match in the final over. Sri Lanka would look to target Australia’s out-of-form top-order in a game that could play a big role in deciding the eventual qualifiers from Group 1 of the Super 12 stage.

The other teams in the group include South Africa, England, West Indies and Bangladesh. In a group consisting of all Test playing nations, even one defeat could prove to be fatal to qualification chances.

Sri Lanka also boast wily spinners like  Maheesh Theekshana and Wanindu Hasaranga and they are sure to pose a lot of trouble to Australia. At the same, Australia have top bowlers like Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Adam Zampa.

In such a case, the batting could be the difference between the sides and both sides will hope for a good outing with the bat in Dubai.

Charith Asalanka’s unbeaten 80 and Bhanuka Rajapaksa’s 53 helped Sri Lanka stage a late comeback against Bangladesh. The team will now hope for contributions from Kusal Perera, Pathum Nissanka and Avishka Fernando to keep the winning streak going.
