Australia vs Sri Lanka – 2nd T20I Betting Tips

Host Australia will face Sri Lanka in the second T20I of the five-match series at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Sunday.

Even though the management will be quite pleased with the team’s overall performance in the first T20I, there will be some concern with the display of some of the batters where the home team lost eight wickets for just 65 runs in the space of 50 deliveries despite reaching the score of 80 for the loss of one wicket in 10.2 overs

Even though there will be some disappointment with the batting performance where the team ended well short of the target of 143, the management will be pleased with the overall performance of the players, in particular of the bowlers, who played a key role in restricting the home team to a manageable total.

The home team is leading the series after winning the first fixture by 20 runs through Duckworth-Lewis-Stern (DLS) method on Friday.

Australia Forma and Team news:

After securing a win in a tight contest on Friday at the same venue, Australia will enter the second fixture with high confidence and they are unlikely to make too many changes in the starting XI as well.

The coaching staff will be hoping that the players will learn from their mistakes and produce a much better display in the match on Sunday.

In the batting department, the Kangaroos will be heavily relying on the likes of captain Aaron Finch, in-form Ben McDermott, Josh Inglis, experienced Steve Smith, explosive Glenn Maxwell, wicketkeeper-batter Mathew Wade and hard-hitting Marcus Stoinis to score the bulk of the runs and put the opposition under pressure.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins, Stoinis along with the leg-spin of Adam Zampa to claim timely breakthroughs and dismantle the visitors batting lineup.

Sri Lanka Form and Team News:

Despite suffering a defeat in the first T20I, Sri Lanka will enter the second fixture feeling good about themselves and they are unlikely to make too many changes in the starting XI as well.

The coaching staff will be hoping that the players learn from their mistakes and produce an even better performance in the next outing.

In the batting department, the Islanders will be relying on the likes of openers Pathum Nissanka, Danushka Gunathilaka, Avishka Fernando, Charith Asalanka, wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Chandimal and captain Dasun Shanaka to score the bulk of the runs and give the bowlers something to bowl with.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Dushmantha Chameera, Binura Fernando, Chamika Karunaratne along with the spin duo of Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva and Maheesh Theekshana to claim timely breakthroughs.

Our Tipster’s Angle

The first match of the series was far more competitive than many would’ve predicted. Despite the intensity of the opening T20I, on paper at least, Australia remain a heavy favorites because of the depth in their squad compared to Sri Lanka where the majority of the players are still new at the international level. Therefore, the prediction is for Australia to win the match and take a 2-0 lead.

Tip 1: Adam Zampa to continue his purple patch with the ball

Leg-spinner has performed done exceedingly well for Australia in the T20 format. In the past 12 months, Adam Zampa has topped the bowling charts for Australia in the 20-over format. In 22 matches played, Zampa has claimed 29 wickets at an economy rate of 7.01. In the series opener at SCG, Adam Zampa put in outstanding performance with the ball in hand and claimed 3 for 18 in his four overs. Given his outstanding performance in the 1st game, we can expect Leg-spinner Adam Zampa to take one wicket or more against Sri [email protected]

Tip 2: Ben McDermott to continue his excellent form for Australia

After finishing the BBL competition as leading run-scorer and accumulating well over 500 runs for Hobart Hurricanes, McDermott made his return to the national side for the T20I series. In the series opener, Ben McDermott notched up a splendid half-century to help Australia post a decent total on the board. Given his notable contribution in the opening game, we can expect opener Ben McDermott to score 20 runs or more against Sri [email protected]
