Australia vs Sri Lanka 1st T20 Dream11 Predictions, Lineups and more
Australia is all set to host the Sri Lankans in a 5 match T20 series set to begin from the 11th of February, 2022. After a successful Ashes series where they whitewashed the English team, the Aussies will be looking to win their match against the Sri Lankans. The hosts are currently the World T20 champions and they will be looking to keep their reputation intact.
Sri Lanka will be heading to Australia on the back of a 2-1 ODI series win over Zimbabwe and while Australia is a different class of opposition, the Lankans will be looking to win the first game and get the series underway.
The match will be played at the iconic Sydney Cricket Ground.

Finch is the highest run scorer in T20s for Australia and he is also a player with loads of experience. He knows how to anchor an innings and can also lead the boys in difficult situations. So far, he has scored 2608 runs in T20s and we are sure that he will pile on the runs in this series as well.
He has rediscovered his form in the last year, making him one of the most lethal batsmen in the T20 format. He has hammered close to 2000 runs in T20s and he can be useful with the ball as well.
He has been one of the stand out performers for Sri Lanka lately and with 52 wickets in the T20 format, he is definitely one player to watch out for in the Sri Lankan side. It will be interesting to see how he adapts to the challenging Australian conditions and pitches.
