Having lost the One Day Series after an unbelievable start in the longer format, the Sri Lankans are in with another opportunity to regain dominance over the world number one side Australia. The 1st of the two Twenty20s are scheduled to commence at the Pallekale International Stadium later today.
In the absence of Lasith Malinga and Angelo Mathews, the Lankan side is rather inexperienced and young. However, retiring batsman Tillekeratne Dilshan is set to make his final appearance in Kandy. His inclusion will definitely boost the level of experience in the young Lankan side.
In Angelo’s absence Dinesh Chandimal is set to take over as he did in the 5th ODI at the same venue. Nevertheless, the Aussies take the advantage with a balanced squad and an impressive bowling attack.
Likely XI for Sri Lanka
1. Tillakaratne Dilshan, 2 Kusal Perera (wk), 3 Kusal Mendis, 4 Dinesh Chandimal (capt.), 5 Chamara Kapugedara, 6 Milinda Siriwardana, 7 Thisara Perera, 8 Sachith Pathirana, 9 Seekkuge Prasanna, 10 Sachithra Senanayake, 11 Kasun Rajitha.
The match will commence at 7pm today.
