Cricket Free Tips | ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, Match 22: Australia vs Sri Lanka

Australia will play Sri Lanka in the T20 World Cup 2021 Group 1 match today. In their first match against South Africa, Australia had to put in a lot of effort to win. Marcus Stoinis and wicketkeeper Matthew Wade put up a 40-run unbeaten stand to help them win by 5 wickets with 2 balls to spare. The bowling attack’s qualities are undeniable, but the top-order batsman must be more responsible in the following contests.

On the other hand, Sri Lanka trounced the Bangladesh Tigers in their most recent match, winning by five wickets with seven balls remaining. This was their fourth consecutive World Cup victory. Charith Asalanka and Bhanuka Rajapaksa guided them home for half a century. They have depth in their bowling attack, and if they play to their strengths, they have a chance to overcome Australia.
