AUS vs SL Tips, Stats & Team for T20 Match Prediction
Match: AUS vs SL T20 Match Prediction
Time: 11 February, 01:40 PM (IST)
Series: 1st T20 Match
Venue: Sydney Cricket Ground – Sydney, Australia
We feel Steve Smith will be a key batter for Australia given his ability to pay spin. We are backing him as Australia top batter.
Sri Lanka will rest their hopes on Charith Asalanka, who is a key player at the top. Also, he had a decent run in Lanka Premier League thus he is our pick for the top batter.
The Australians have a power packed batting lineup and are likely to hit more boundaries in the match.
TV Channel : The series will be televised on the Sony Network, while the fans can enjoy the live streaming on the SonyLiv app.
Live Streaming: They will also be streamed on SonyLiv App.
Sunny throughout with a high of 29 degrees for the first couple of hours of the game.
The wicket will be a good sporting wicket. While it will be slightly flat, bowlers who bowl a lot of cutters and slower balls can trouble the batters. Spinners will also be dangerous here.
Sydney historically has favoured the team batting first given its tendency to get slower as the game progress. Expect the skipper winning the toss to bat.

Who will win today match: AUS vs SL T20 Match Team
Sri Lanka will have high spirits going into the series but unfortunately they lack the quality to overpower this Australian side. It will be a huge upset if Sri Lanka manages to win even a single game. Australia are massive favourites.
AUS Key Players:
Smith is a key player in this team that is laced with power hitters. Especially in Sydney, you need a batter who can stay long at the wicket and play spin well and Smith is very good at that.
When it comes to T20 cricket, there is no bigger player in Australia than Glenn Maxwell. In addition to his match-winning abilities with the bat, he is very potent with his off-spin as well, which will be handy in Sydney.
Returning from an injury, Hazlewood would be keen to make an impact ahead of the IPL auction. His ability to bowl accurate lines makes him lethal on these flat tracks.

SL Key Players:
the batter is rated very highly in Sri Lanka. While his performances have been inconsistent, a good series against Australia will skyrocket his stocks. Also, he likes to play aggressively at the top that allows the pressure off the other batters.
Another very impressive youngster. Asalanka was in decent form in the Lanka Premier League and has some runs behind him. He will be keen to take that form into the Australia T20Is.
Wanindu Hasaranga will be the lead spinner for Sri Lanka and the conditions in Sydney will be in his favour.
AUS Team Form:
Australia last played in the T20 World Cup and won their maiden title.
SL Team Form:
Sri Lanka too last played T20Is in the World Cup but filed to reach playoffs.
