The in-form Australia team will be seen taking on the Sri Lanka side tomorrow on 15th June 2019. The 20th match of the ICC World Cup 2019 will be played between Sri Lanka and Australia at the Oval, London.
While Aussies came with a confident win over Pakistan in their last match, Sri Lanka’s last 2 matches had been washed out due to heavy rains at the venue. The Aaron Finch-led team is at the 2nd position on the points table with 3 wins out of 4 matches. On the other hand, Sri Lanka is standing at the 5th position with 1 win out of 4 matches.
The Sri Lanka team will be seen hustling to come into the action as it has been 10 days since Sri Lankan players have played a match. But Australia can’t take risk to underestimate the Sri Lanka’s pace trio will be seen in the X-Factor with its expertise to swing the ball and cause some serious trouble with extra pace.
Aussie openers will have to play attacking cricket right from the start in order to put a big score on the board. Even Aussie’s attacking bowlers like Mitchell Starc & Pat Cummins will look to be in the same attacking mode against Lankans.
Pitch Report & Weather Forecast
The pitch at the Oval is likely to support pacers and even seam bowlers. The pitch will even allow balls to come nicely on the bat making it a good batting surface. The stadium is expected to see some rain and match may get delayed. The match will be broadcasted on Star Sports Network at 3:00 pm IST.
Now, let’s have a look at the probable playing XI of both the teams.
Dimuth Karunaratne (C), Kusal Perera (WK), Lahiru Thirimanne, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Matthews, Dhanjaya De Silva, Thisara Perera, Isuru Udana, Suranga Lakmal, Lasith Malinga, and Nuwan Pradeep
