In-form Australia will be looking to become the first team to win four games in the ongoing World Cup when they take on Sri Lanka. The defending champions are currently third in the points table with 3 wins from four games. A win today will take them to the top of the points table. In their last outing, the defending champions beat Pakistan by 41 runs to get back to winning ways.

On the other hand, Sri Lanka are currently fifth in the table with just one win from four games. Their last two games were washed out and they will be desperate to collect maximum points from this game. A loss in this game could deal a huge blow to their semifinals hopes.

Toss Report:

Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bowl first against Australia in the 20th match of the World Cup 2019.

Here is what the captains said:

Aaron Finch:

“Still haven’t managed to win a toss. I would have bowled first. A bit of cloud cover. Will swing around initially and we will have to bat well to see that phase through. We haven’t done too well particularly with the bat. We have done well in patches in the tournament, but it hasn’t come together. We need to be disciplined against the new ball. NCN is stiff and sore, and Behrendorff will be replacing him.”

Dimuth Karunaratne:

“We’ll bowl first. It has been rainy, so the moisture will help seamers initially so we need to take advantage. Pradeep is fit to play, he’s been playing really well and has recovered. Siriwardene will play instead of Lakmal. We have trained harder since it has been frustrating with all our games getting rained out. Training hard. That’s all we can do.”
