Match 20 of the ICC World Cup 2019 will see Sri Lanka go up against the defending champions Australia on June 15 (Saturday) at the Kennington Oval in London. The points table is significantly poised as a win will take Australia to the top of the points table with eight points.
Sri Lanka have not looked a very challenging side but could change perceptions about their chances with a solid performance against Australia. The batting has not managed to step up and need to apply themselves and back the bowlers who have been so far decent in the tournament.
On the other hand, Australia will be exceedingly happy as they have started to tick all the boxes after a few sloppy games at the start of the World Cup. Notably, Aaron Finch & Co have managed to win games even when they were not at their personal best. The batting has started to fall in place led by David Warner. The bowling has a well-rounded look to it as well. The pacers have done well so far and will hope to keep the excellent work going in the matches to follow.
Date and Venue: Sri Lanka vs Australia, June 15 (Saturday), 3:00 PM IST, Kennington Oval in London
Although the match between England Windies witnessed full 50 overs of action, but once again rain is likely to play a spoilsport at Nottingham. So much so we can be up for another washout in this World Cup.
Meanwhile, it will be chilly with temperatures hovering around 15 degrees Celsius. The presence of significant clouds will make the life of the fast bowlers a bit easy. The humidity will be in the 50s and 60s. However, the pitch will ease out as the game progress, and it will relatively be on the slower side.
