Australia and Sri Lanka will be playing the 22nd match of the T20 World Cup 2021 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. You can catch the live streaming of this match on Disney+ Hotstar.
Australia picked up a five-wicket victory over South Africa after the latter had made 118 runs for the loss of nine wickets in 20 overs. Australia's win over Sri Lanka was made possible thanks to the efforts of two players, Steve Smith, and Marcus Stoinis. Proteas's batting misery was once again highlighted in this victory. One problem for Australia continues to be the inability of openers to score runs. Even though the middle order could rescue the team, the top order failed to deliver against South Africa. The bowling department is in a better position than they've ever been. They should be able to take advantage of the bowler-friendly conditions in Dubai.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka managed a similar five-wicket victory against Bangladesh in their first match. After Sri Lanka's good showings in the qualifiers and against Bangladesh, they have a massive test against Australia. Many people are guessing that Sri Lanka might not win against the strong teams. For Sri Lanka to achieve victory, the team's bowling department may have to contribute a little more. The team has two spinners in the form of Mahesh Theekshana and Wanindu Hasaranga. They are likely to play a significant role in today's T20 match.
