Australia will clash against Sri Lanka in the Group 1 contest of the T20 World Cup 2022 on Tuesday. Defending champions Australia were humbled in their opening fixture by dominant New Zealand by a massive margin of 89 runs, with this huge loss their net run rate has taken a hit. Their bowlers weren’t up to the mark and failed to execute the plans. They were shaky with the bat, losing wickets at regular intervals with Glenn Maxwell top-scoring for that side. The pressure is now on the home to win their remaining matches to cement their spot in the knockouts.
Sri Lanka on the other hand, got the start they wanted into the Super 12 stages with an easy win over Ireland by 9 wickets. There was some sort of doubts about whether they will qualify for the Super 12s as they lost to Namibia in the first round and later went on top the Group A standings beating UAE and Netherlands. They got a similar start in the Asia Cup and later emerged as champions. Premier batter Pathum Nissanka who missed the last game against Ireland due to injury is available for selection against the Aussies. Kusal Mendis is in exceptional form having struck 2 half-centuries in this competition.
