Australia vs Sri Lanka will play in the 1st T20I of the Sri Lanka tour of Australia 2022 at SCG, Sydney. We will cover AUS vs SL Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.

Australia :

Australia will be seen playing their first T20I game after their last outing in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.

The World champions will look to get their perfect combination and also try out some new faces before the all important ICC T20 World Cup 2022 which will be played in their home soil.

Aaron Finch has already confirmed the Playing XI. Ben McDermott and Jos Inglis will be seen in the top 3 and will look to use this opportunity wisely.

Australia has stickers with their full strength bowling attack with no main bowler taking any sort of rest. 

Mitchel Starc, Pat Cummins and Josh Hazelwood will handle the pace department while Adam Zampa and G Maxwell will handle the spin department. 

The Australians look clear favorites in this series and will look to dominate on their home soil.

Sri Lanka:

Sri Lanka has announced a 20 member squad for this series. They will look to see some major improvements from their batters. 

Even a solitary win from the 3 match series will give Lankans a lot of confidence. Danushka Gunathilaka is back at the top of the order. 

Wanindu Hasaranga will again be their key man with both bat and ball and will look to continue his good form. Dushmantha Chameera and Binuro Fernando are expected to be their key pacers.

Charith Asalanka and Avishka Fernando will bat in the middle-order and are very attacking players. Shanka will do the finishing duties for the team.

Sri Lankans definitely have the potential to compete and will look to display their best show in this series.
