Australia vs. Sri Lanka: Second T20I Preview

Match Details:

Series: Australia vs Sri Lanka

Venue: The Gabba, Brisbane

Date: October 30, 2019

Time: 01:40 PM IST

Match Preview:

After a thrashing defeat in the first T20I at Adelaide, Sri Lanka will look to make a strong comeback in the second T20I against Australia at Brisbane. The visitors came into this series on the back of a fantastic 3-0 series victory in Pakistan and almost defended a low total of 131 in the practice T20 match against Prime Minister's XI as well. But here they were back to the Sri Lanka we have been familiar with for the past couple of years. They not only conceded a 200-plus total to Australia but also failed to put up a fight with the bat. They were restricted to a paltry total of 99/9 and that sums up the story of their struggle.

Weather Conditions: The weather is expected to be cloudy all day but no rain has been forecast.

Pitch Conditions: The average first innings score at this ground varies between 175-180. The deck has some bounce and carry in it and the batsmen will enjoy playing their shots. But the record for chasing teams isn't good as they have lost three out of the four matches played at this venue.

Probable Playing XI:

Australia: David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Ashton Turner, Ashton Agar, Alex Carey (wk), Kane Richardson, Pat Cummins, Billy Stanlake, Adam Zampa
