Chamika Karunaratne, Dushmantha Chameera, Kasun Rajitha, Nuwan Thushara, Matheesha Pathirana, Maheesh Theekshana, Praveen Jayawickrama, and Lakshan Sandakan will be leading the bowling department of Sri Lanka with Charith Asalanka, Wanindu Hasaranga, Ramesh Mendis. Bhanuka Rajapaksa is the wicket-keeper batsman of Sri Lanka. Bhanuka Rajapaksa had been good in the recent matches he had played and he is in good batting form.
Australia is a strong team when it comes to the bowling department. Josh Hazlewood, Kane Richardson, Mitchell Starc, and Mitchell Swepson are the key bowlers of Australia with Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, and Jhye Richardson. Australia is overall a strong team when we compare it with Sri Lanka and this series is looking one-sided but we think that Sri Lanka will give us a tough time to Australia.
