Sri Lanka – Australia Match Prediction | 14-09-2019 10:00

The cricket fans are ready to witness yet another big battle of the cricket world cup. We are providing safe, perfect and accurate today match prediction for all matches of cricket world cup 2019. The 7th warm-up match of Pakistan cricket world cup is scheduled to play between Australia and Sri Lanka on Monday, 27th May 2019 at The Rose Bowl, Southampton.

It increases the onus on Starc to give Australia an early breakthrough, something hell try by getting the ball to swing in massively into Karunaratne. With the Kennington Oval traditionally know to serve up pristine batting surfaces, this is a track Karunaratnewhile like batting on. An area where Karunaratne suffers is the ball which moves in the air and comes into him after pitching with his willingness to play on the back foot leaving him cramped for room at times.

The weather is expected to be mixed for the duration of the test match. This forecast will possibly add some urgency to the proceedings and we still think there is going to be enough time for a result. There is some rain expected on the third day and fifth day of the test. The second test between Australia and Sri Lanka is going to be played at the Manuka Oval, Canberra.

Going by the current forecast, we should get a full game in on Saturday. We have Sri Lanka taking on the defending champions, Australia, on Saturday with the marquee contest between India and Pakistan to take place on the next day. Stakes, however, are going to be higher this time and we expect a lot closer contest. Next few days are going to be critical in terms of both - weather and the matches which are going to be played. The match between Australia and Sri Lanka is scheduled to begin at 9:30 am local time on 15th June at The Oval, London provided the weather doesn't play spoilsport. When the two teams met in the warm-up fixture, the Aussies won the match quite comfortably. With rain stealing most of the limelight in the ongoing Cricket World Cup 2019, the weather becomes an integral part of this world cup.

Nathan Coulter-Nile has not looked at his best and he will be eyeing this game as an opportunity to return to form. Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc are both among the tournament's best bowlers with nine wickets apiece and the pace duo will be expected to run through the Sri Lankan batting line-up. Cummins is coming off a three-wicket haul against Pakistan and he will look to spit venom with the new ball again.

Marcus Stoinis has been added into the side and may make his debut in this match. We think Australia may choose to rest Usman Khawaja for this match since he is a certainty on the trip to England. This is the last test that Australia will play before the Ashes and so getting runs is going to be very important.

Has Australian cricket turned a corner or is it just a false dawn against an underwhelming Sri Lanka side? Does Sri Lanka have the resources to be able to win their first ever test match in Australia? The second test between Australia and Sri Lanka is going to be played at Canberra on one of the flattest pitches in the country. Batsmen on both sides should be able to take advantage of the batting conditions and score some big runs.

Full Details of Today Match Prediction

Adam Zampa was dropped last time and replaced with Kane Richardson, and it will be interesting to see whether the Aussies bring back the former or continue with the latter. Australia made a couple of changes to their line-up in the previous game against Pakistan, one of which was a forced change with Shaun Marsh coming in to replace Marcus Stoinis who suffered a side strain in the game against India. Stoinis' availability for this match has not been confirmed yet which means Marsh is likely to get another opportunity.

Since the pitch here is expected to get a tad slower later on in the day, the team that wins the toss would want to make first use of the ideal batting conditions. Five of the last seven completed one-day internationals (including three out of the four in this World Cup) played at the Kennington Oval have been won by the side batting first.

In Warner, hes going to come up against his toughest test at the quadrennial event till date. In the absence of Nuwan Pradeep and Suranga Lakmal far from effective, the brunt on Malinga to shoulder the responsibility increases. Malinga knows he cant afford to wane in length the slightest with Warner relishing the low full tosses Malinga is more than guilty of dishing up.

The skipper, Dimuth Karunaratne played an excellent inning with the bat. Sri Lankan team is coming into this match on the back of a loss in their first warm-up match against South Africa with a huge margin of 87 runs. Angelo Mathews was also good with the bat as he had 64 runs in his account. They won the toss and decided to field first. He scored 87 runs. Kusal Mendis scored 37 runs. They leaked 338 runs in their 50 overs. This decision did not the world for them. The batting order of Sri Lankan team failed to chase this massive total and was all-out on the total of 251 runs in 43rd over. Suranga Lakmal and Nuwan Pradeep got two wickets each while Isuru Udana, Jeevan Mendis, and Dhananjaya de Silva had one wicket each in their account.

Dream11 Prediction

Malinga picked up three wickets against Afghanistan and that should give him some confidence going into this game. Lakmal's spell with the new ball is going to be crucial while Perera's ability to break prospering partnerships makes him the one to watch out for. Nuwan Pradeeps participation in this game is under a cloud and his absence would mean that Sri Lanka will have to rely on the likes of Lasith Malinga, Suranga Lakmal and Thisara Perera when it comes to bowling.

After an embarrassing 10-wicket defeat at the hands of New Zealand in their opening game at Cardiff, Sri Lanka bounced back in their next game with a 34-run victory over Afghanistan at the same venue. Their last two games - against Pakistan and Bangladesh - were both washed out due to rain. Sri Lanka have only two wins and nine losses from the eleven completed one-day internationals that they have played so far this year. They are currently occupying the fifth position on the CWC 2019 points table with four points in as many matches.

Glenn Maxwell was the most expensive bowler from their side who was charged for 58 runs in seven overs and he remained wicketless. Nathan Coulter-Nile got one wicket while he bowled nine overs and he leaked 53 runs. The bowling unit of Australia also played an excellent with the ball. At one stage, it was looking that they the bowling unit of Australia cannot defend this total of 307 runs but they did it. Pat Cummins proved the most successful bowler from their side who got three wickets in his ten overs and leaked just 33 runs. Mitchell Starc and Kane Richardson got two wickets each. The skipper, Aaron Finch bowled two overs he leaked 13 runs and got one wicket.
