Sri Lanka are in Australia for a 5-match T20I series set to be played between February 11 and February 20.


It will be a great opportunity for Sri Lanka to prepare for the upcoming T20 World Cup which will be played in Australia.

Sri Lanka have brought back Danushka Gunathilaka and Kusal Mendis, who had their one-year ban revoked earlier this month while Niroshan Dickwella hasn't been picked. Lasith Malinga has been appointed as Sri Lanka's bowling strategy coach for Australia T20Is.

Australia have made a last-minute change to their squad. Daniel Sams has been added to the squad in place of Travis Head who will miss the first three matches to feature in a Sheffield Shield clash for South Australia.

Aaron Finch is the top run-scorer for Australia with 135 runs from his last 7 matches at an average of 19 and a strike rate of 116. Matthew Wade has also made 99 runs from his last 10 matches.

Adam Zampa has been the best bowler for Australia and has picked up 16 wickets from his last 9 matches while bowling at an economy rate of 5.86 and a strike rate of 13. Josh Hazlewood has also picked up 15 wickets from his last 9 matches.

Charith Asalanka is the top run-scorer for Sri Lanka with 245 runs from his last 7 matches at an average of 40 and a strike rate of 138. Pathum Nissanka has also made 221 runs from his last 8 matches.

Wanindu Hasaranga has been the best bowler for Sri Lanka and has picked up 17 wickets from his last 10 matches while bowling at an economy rate of 5.61 and a strike rate of 13. Maheesh Theekshana has also picked up 8 wickets from his last 9 matches.
