AUS Team News

  • Australia will miss the services of Glenn Maxwell in this third T20I as the all rounder has taken an indefinite break from cricket citing mental health issues.
  • The team management have not announced his replacement as of yet.
  • Maxwell’s withdrawal will open the doors for either pacer Sean Abbott or batsman Ben McDermott.

AUS Key Players

  • Adam Zampa: The leg-spinner has taken 28 wickets at an impressive economy of 5.86 in his T20I career of 24 matches. Zampa has troubled the Sri Lankan batsman the most in this series – he took 3-14 in the first match and 2-20 last time out.
  • David Warner: He is Australia’s leading run-getter in T20Is. The left-handed opener is looking in imperious form and is yet to be dismissed in this series.
  • Aaron Finch: Warner’s opening partner and skipper Aaron Finch has scored the most runs for Australia at the MCG in the 20-over format – 287 runs which includes a couple of fifties.

AUS Team Form

Australia’s crushing nine-wicket victory last time out means that they have now won all their four T20 internationals they have played so far this year. The last time they faced defeat in this format was in November last year against India at Sydney. The Aussies have dominated Sri Lanka with both bat and ball in the ongoing T20I series.

SL Team News

  • Sri Lanka made three changes to their side in the last match as they dropped Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Oshada Fernando and Kasun Rajitha for Avishka Fernando, Niroshan Dickwella and Isuru Udana.
  • They are expected to make at least one change for their final game of the tour leg spinner Wanindu Hasaranga has returned expensive figures in both the matches and he could make way for fast bowler Lahiru Kumara.
  • Skipper Lasith Malinga will continue to lead Sri Lanka’s bowling attack.

SL Key Players

  • Lasith Malinga: The veteran fast bowler has taken the most wickets for Sri Lanka in this format – 105 wickets (one four-fer and two fifers) in 78 matches. 
  • Kusal Perera: He is Sri Lanka’s biggest hope with the bat at the top of the order. The left-handed batsman is among the team’s leading run-scorers in T20I cricket and has ten half-centuries under his belt.
  • Danushka Gunathilaka: The Sri Lankan opener has scored 452 runs in 21 T20Is and has a couple of half-centuries to his name.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka have managed to win only four out of the twelve matches they have played so far this year in the shortest format. They came into this series after having decimated Pakistan at Lahore in a three-match T20I series earlier in October. Sri Lanka have been completely outplayed by Australia in the first two games.

AUS V SL Dream11 Picks

  • Wicket-keeper:- We are preferring Carey for the wicket keeping options.
  • Batsmen:- David Warner is looking in ominous form at the moment with back to back match winning performances and picking him should be a no brainer. While Aaron Finch and Steven Smith are both giid options for the Dream 11. Sri Lanka’s Danushka Gunathilaka and D Rajapasaka(still on hope that he will play) there aren’t any much choices for Lankans are per their current situation.
  • All-rounders:- After the news of Maxwell not playing Agar is best fitted in the position.
  • Bowlers:- Adam Zampa has been the most impressive bowler in this series. Pat Cummins has picked a couple of wickets in both the matches and should be included in the Dream11. We have also picked Billy Stanlake and Malinga as of his records.
