Overall the Aussies have played 31 Test matches against Sri Lanka winning 19 matches. Most of their wins have come in Australia. This Aussies squad has several of the players who were a part of the 2016 series which they lost to the hosts. Nathan Lyon, Steve Smith, David Warner and Mitchell Starc were all part of the series back then.

Glenn Maxwell is making an enterprising return to the Test squad after five years. He played his last Test against Bangladesh in 2017. The Aussie side is struggling with injury concerns and looks an unsettled unit at the moment. Keeping the injuries in mind choosing a proper XI might be difficult.
