Sri Lanka face Australia in the second T20 International match on Wednesday, June 8 at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo from 7:00 PM IST (Indian Standard Time).

The Australians will look to continue their dominance on the Sri Lankans in the shortest format having beaten them 4-1 in their last T20 international series. Aaron Finch and Co. will look to continue with their dominant run against the Sri Lankans. 

On the other hand, Sri Lanka will look to put their best foot forward against the reigning champions. The Islanders have just won two of their last 10 T20 international matches and a win over the Australian side will be a morale booster for them. 

With the T20 World Cup scheduled later this year, both teams will look to zero down on their ideal playing combination ahead of the mega event.

Sri Lanka vs Australia 2nd T20I probable playing XI

Sri Lanka: Pathum Nissanka, Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis (wicket-keeper), Charith Asalanka, Dasun Shanaka (captain), Chamika Karunaratne, Wanindu Hasaranga, Dushmantha Chameera, Matheesha Pathirana, Maheesh Theekshana, Matheesha Pathirana 

Australia: Aaron Finch (captain), David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade (wicket-keeper), Ashton Agar, Jhyle Richardson, Kane Richardson, Josh Hazlewood

Sri Lanka vs Australia 2nd T20I top picks

Sri Lanka: Dushmantha Chameera will be a valuable pick for this game. The pacer was Sri Lanka’s highest wicket-taker with seven wickets across five games in the last bilateral series between the two sides. With some rain in Colombo in the last few days, Chameera is likely to get plenty of assistance from the surface. 

Australia: Josh Hazlewood will be the player to watch out for in this fixture. The pacer picked 4/16 in the first T20I against Sri Lanka and will hope to continue his wicket-taking form in the series. 

Sri Lanka vs Australia 2nd T20I prediction

Australia’s recent record against Sri Lanka makes them the favourites to win this clash. 

However, Sri Lanka’s potent bowling attack in home conditions is likely to make the job tougher for the Aussies.
