Australia vs. Sri Lanka: Third T20I Match Preview

Match Details:

Series: Australia vs. Sri Lanka

Venue: Melbourne Cricket Ground,Melbourne  

Date: November 1, 2019

Time: 1:40 p.m. IST

Match Preview:

Sri Lanka will face Australia in the third and final T20I, and will be hopeful of turning around what has been a dismal series for them. After a successful tour of Pakistan earlier this month, where they defeated the number one ranked side 3-0, they have been unable to get their act together against Australia, and have already lost the series. Both the games have been one-sided, with the Kangaroos dominating the Asian side.  

The upcoming game is a dead rubber, which might mean that Australia give a few chances to their reserve players, while the Lankans will be hoping to restore some pride by winning the clash.

Weather Conditions: Temperatures will be in the mid-thirties on match day, but the evening should get cooler. There is no chance of rain as well, which means that we should be in for a full 40-over game. Conditions will be cloudy, so pacers can have a say in the proceedings.

Pitch Conditions: It has been a year since the last T20I was played at Melbourne, when Australia took on India in a game. However, the match was abandoned due to rain. The pitch at the MCG is tricky at times for the batters, with an average first innings score of only 139. Teams prefer to bat first after winning the toss here.
