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

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.

Dimuth Karunaratne is leading the team for the first time in any World Cup. The players like Lasith Malinga, Isuru Udana, and Dhananjaya de Silva must play good cricket for their team. Thisara Perera is the only player from their side who is in good form. The coming matches are much won for Sri Lanka to end this World Cup in a good knock. Suranga Lakmal is also playing good cricket these days. We all know that Sri Lankan team is a combination of young and experienced players.

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.

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.

Sri Lanka is having a hard time to make a mark this time around, and even a non-cricket fan will be able to determine who the winner of this match will be. Were sure winning this match on the very pitch must give them a morale boost. It will be the 5th appearance for both teams in the current edition of the ICC World Cup 2019. The Aussies will be back at the Kennington Oval after being defeated by India in their previous match. Australia, despite losing the previous game, is, in fact, playing exceptionally well. Theyre all set to take on Sri Lanka in the 20th match of the ICC World Cup 2019.

After winning their opening two matches - by seven wickets against Afghanistan at Bristol and by 15 runs against the West Indies at Nottingham - they suffered a 36-run loss to India at London. Australia have been impressive in the 50-over format this year, winning 12 and losing just 5 out of their 17 one-day internationals. The Aussies are currently second on the CWC 2019 leaderboard with six points having won three and lost one out of the four matches. Australia played their last game against Pakistan at Taunton which they ended up winning by 41 runs. They have now won 11 of their last 12 matches in this format.

Karunaratne batted well against the quality pace attack of the Kiwis and the skipper will be expected to make a sizeable contribution against Australia as well. Angelo Mathews and Kusal Mendis are the team's most reliable batsmen in the middle order. Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Perera smashed half-centuries against New Zealand and Afghanistan respectively and the onus will be on this opening pair to ensure that Sri Lanka gets off to a good start.
