Australia vs Sri Lanka – 4th T20I Betting Tips

Host Australia will face Sri Lanka in the fourth T20I of the five-match series at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday. 

After securing three wins in a row, Australia will enter the fourth contest with high confidence.

After an impressive series triumph, the management will be hoping to see the players continue producing similar kinds of performances in the remaining matches.

After losing three consecutive matches, Sri Lanka will enter Friday’s fixture with low confidence and there might be some changes in the starting XI as well.

The home team have already taken an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series after winning the first three fixtures by 20 runs, a one-over eliminator and by six wickets.

Australia Form and Team news: 

Since the home team have already won the series, for the match on Friday, the management might opt to tweak the playing XI and give some of the players sitting on the bench a chance to showcase their talent at the highest level 

Leg-spinner Adam Zampa, who did not take part in the previous fixture, is likely to be included in the starting lineup. 

In the batting department, Kangaroos will be heavily relying on the likes of captain Aaron Finch, young top-order batter Ben McDermott, Josh Inglis, explosive all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis and wicketkeeper-batter Matthew Wade 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 pace trio of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazelwood, Kane Richardson along the leg-spinner Zampa to claim timely breakthroughs.

Sri Lanka Form and Team News: 

The management will be slightly disappointed with the performance of the players in the third T20I where when it mattered the most, no player put his hand and showed any resistance to the home team.

Therefore, the coaching staff will be hoping that the players will produce a much better display in the remaining matches to take some confidence forward.

The absence of star all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga will be felt. The 24-year-old is in isolation after testing positive ahead of the third T20I.

In the batting department, the visitors will be heavily relying on the likes of Kusal Mendis, opener Pathum Nissanka, Avishka Fernando, veteran keeper-batter Dinesh Chandimal and captain Dasun Shanaka to help the team in posting a respectable total on the board.

On the bowling front, the Islanders will be relying on the likes of fast-bowlers Dushmantha Chameera, Nuwan Thushara, Chamika Karunaratne along with the spin duo of Maheesh Theekshana and Jeffrey Vandersay to claim timely breakthroughs and restrict the home team.

Our Tipster’s Angle

After relatively close first two matches, the home team managed to bring their A-game on the show and clinch the series win with two more matches to go.

Going into the last fixtures of the series, on paper at least, Australia look far superior to the young Sri Lanka side who are finding it hard to keep their levels up to compete with the reigning world champions.

Therefore, the prediction is for the Kangaroos to win another match and continue their hunt to complete a clean sweep.

Tip 1: Australia to continue their unbeaten run in the T20Is

Since losing to England in the ICC T20 World Cup, Australia have managed to win seven matches on the bounce.  Defending Champions will be looking to extend their winning run in the competition.
