After the end of the ODI series now t20 series will begin from today at Pallekele. Now Sri Lanka has Tillakaratne Dilshan which is a huge hop for them because he got talent, experience, and many good background performances. But the other side Australia is much stronger then SL because, they got a lot of big star batsmen of t20 cricket like David Warner, Usman Khawaja, George Bailey, Glenn Maxwell. Two t20 matches will be played between Aus v SL.

Warner, Khawaja, Head, Bailey, Maxwell, Henriques, Nevill, Faulkner, Starc, Zampa, Boland.
The Pallekele surface aids both quicks and spinners under lights, so the match is unlikely to be a high scorer. There is a small chance light showers could interrupt play. The game is already sold out. The visitors’ XI is no less difficult to predict, as they have not played T20s since March.
In the current form, Mitchell Starc, James Faulkner, John Hastings, and Zampa should make up the bulk of the attack. There are so many injuries and so many permutations with the Sri Lanka squad that pinning down an XI is difficult. Kusal Perera is likely to return to the top of the order. In the past, Sri Lanka has liked to stack their team with allrounders.
