The live cricket streaming international cricket is Sri Lanka v Australia and South Africa v Afghanistan, 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup.

June 15, Sri Lanka v Australia, 20th match, 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, Kennington Oval, London

There are two ways in which you can judge the way in which the last two matches have panned out for Sri Lanka. They have collected one point each due to their matches against Pakistan and Bangladesh being washed out, without any play being possible.

To be honest, they were not really the favourites to win either of these matches and might consider themselves fortunate to take away two points. However, Sri Lanka will have every chance of proving their critics wrong as they take the field against Australia at the Kennington Oval in London.

The Lions will not be able to avail the services of Nuwan Pradeep who has a dislocated finger. Lasith Malinga, who had earlier flown to Sri Lanka to attend the funeral of his mother-in-law, is expected to be back and will play a crucial role in the team's bowling attack along with Suranga Lakmal and Thisara Perera.

Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Perera have played one good knock each and would like to be a bit more consistent. Likewise Angelo Mathews and Kusal Mendis would be itching to play one defining knock in the middle order.

Australia are one of the front runners of the tournament till now and have won three and lost one out of their four games. They thumped Pakistan by a big margin of 41 runs in their last match and look in ominous form.

In the absence of all-rounder Marcus Stoinis, Shaun Marsh was included in his place and is expected to get one more game. Although Kane Richardson performed quite well in the last game, Nathan Coulter-Nile or Richardson will lose his spot to Adam Zampa.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Sri Lanka- Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Kusal Perera (wk), Lahiru Thirimanne, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Dhananjaya de Silva, Thisara Perera, Jeevan Mendis, Isuru Udana, Suranga Lakmal, Lasith Malinga

Australia- David Warner, Aaron Finch (c), Steven Smith, Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey (wk), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson/ Adam Zampa

June 15, South Africa v Afghanistan, 21th match, 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, Sophia Gardens, Cardiff

While Afghanistan will be playing their fourth match of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, it would be the fifth match for the Proteas.

South Africa brought in Aiden Markram and Beruan Hendricks in place of JP Duminy and Tabraiz Shamsi in the last match. After that match could not last more than 7.3 overs, they are likely to go with the same playing XI.

However, the team would realise that they were under the cosh in the little play possible in their last match against West Indies and the team needs to be a bit more watchful against the new ball. On the bowling front, Kagiso Rabada remains the trump card for the Proteas. They would also expect to extract the maximum out of all-rounders Chris Morris and Andile Phehlukwayo.

With seasoned opener Mohammad Shahzad being ruled out of the entire tournament after aggravating his knee injury, Ikram Alikhil has been added to the squad and his expected to be a part of the playing XI.

Hazratullah Zazai, Hashmatullah Shahidi and Najibullah Zadran will be the leading batters for the Afghans. Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi will continue to lead their bowling attack. Aftab Alam played in place of Dawlat Zadran in the last match, while Mujeeb Ur Rahman made way for Noor Ali Zadran and the team is expected to persist with this combination.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

South Africa- Quinton de Kock (wk), Hashim Amla, Aiden Markram, Faf du Plessis (c), Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada, Imran Tahir, Beuran Hendricks

Afghanistan- Hazratullah Zazai, Noor Ali Zadran, Rahmat Shah, Hashmatullah Shahidi, Mohammad Nabi, Gulbadin Naib (c), Najibullah Zadran, Ikram Alikhil (wk), Rashid Khan, Aftab Alam/Dawlat Zadran, Hamid Hassan
