Cricket Match Preview:

Australia, buoyed by the comeback of a couple of their superstars, David Warner and Steve Smith, will take on Sri Lanka in their third warm-up game of cricket. Australia won their first warm-up cricket game against West Indies by seven wickets and by the time this piece is being written, they are playing their second warm-up game against England.

Sri Lanka have also played one warm-up game of cricket against South Africa and got hammered by 87 runs. Things change quickly in Sri Lankan cricket. Not too long ago, they had taken on South Africa in South Africa under a completely different leadership. Now they have a new captain in Dimuth Karunaratne, who has not played an ODI cricket game until the one against Scotland recently since 2015.

Australia, on the other hand, have been a side marred by issues for the last couple of years. They looked in complete disarray after the South Africa tour, where three of their main players were banned due to the ball-tampering scandal. However, after their disappointing defeat against India in their own country, they went to India and defeated them in the ODI cricket series by a 3-2 margin after being down by 2-0 at the beginning of the cricket series.

Post that, they also went to UAE and whitewashed Pakistan by 5-0. All these results must have given them a lot of confidence and, with the inclusion of David Warner and Steve Smith in their lineup, their side looks a formidable one and it will not be easy for any side to brush them aside.

From Sri Lanka, some players were involved in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Lasith Malinga was part of Mumbai Indians in the IPL and his legend grew bigger as he showed he still had enough cricket in him. The new skipper Karunaratne will be looking at him and all-rounder Angelo Matthews for help to get Sri Lanka back on track and have a successful run at the World Cup.

Cricket Match Information:

Australia and Sri Lanka will have a warm-up game of cricket before the World Cup officially begins on 30th of May. Australia have already played one warm-up game against West Indies, which they won comfortably by seven wickets. Sri Lanka have also played one warm-up game of cricket against South Africa, which they lost by 87 runs.

Australia

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Australia are coming into the World Cup after winning back-to-back cricket series against India and Pakistan. They now also have the services of David Warner and Steve Smith. Our prediction is of the inclusion Mitchell Starc who did not play in their second warm-up game against England.

Here is our prediction of Australia’s playing XI:

  • Aaron Finch
  • David Warner
  • Steve Smith
  • Alex Carrey
  • Shaun Marsh
  • Glenn Maxwell
  • Marcus Stoinis
  • Adam Zampa
  • Usman Khawaja
  • Mitchell Starc
  • Pat Cummins

Sri Lanka

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Sri Lanka have a new captain in Dimuth Karunaratne, and he will be looking to change the fortune of a struggling side. Our prediction is of the inclusion of Lasith Malinga in this game of cricket as he has not been part of the squad since they have reached England.

Here is our prediction of Sri Lanka’s playing XI:

  • Dimuth Karunaratne
  • Lahiru Thirimanne
  • Kusal Mendis
  • Kusal Perera
  • Angelo Matthews
  • Thisara Perera
  • Dhananjaya de Silva
  • Lasith Malinga
  • Suranga Lakmal
  • Nuwan Pradeep
  • I Udana

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

David Warner has been very hungry for runs ever since his comeback in the international cricket post the ban. Our prediction is of continuation of that form in this cricket game as well.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last international T20 cricket match played here was between Pakistan and England recently. England won that cricket game by defending the total of 373 runs. Our prediction is of high first innings score in this cricket game especially if Australia bat first. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

Australia will begin this game of cricket as favourites. They had been in good form in the build-up to the World Cup. Hence, our prediction is of Australia’s victory in the next cricket game.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

David Warner (AUS) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Mitch Starc (AUS) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Glenn Maxwell (AUS)
