Australia vs Sri Lanka T20 World Cup 2021 On Thursday, Australia will play Sri Lanka in the T20 World Cup 2021 Group 1 match. 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 unbroken partnership to help them win by 5 wickets with 2 balls to spare. The bowling attack’s qualities are undeniable, but the top-order batsmen must be more responsible in the next contests.
Sri Lanka, on the other side, trounced the Bangladesh Tigers in their most recent encounter, winning by five wickets with seven balls remaining in the match. This was their fourth consecutive World Cup triumph. 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.

In the final game against South Africa, Steven Smith was on fire. When he was batting on 35 runs, he was removed by Aiden Markram’s spectacular catch in the wide long-on zone. He understands how to pace his inning based on the situation’s demands.
Josh Hazlewood’s IPL stint with Chennai Super Kings has aided him greatly in his preparation for this event. In the most recent game against South Africa, he was named player of the match for his outstanding bowling efforts, in which he took two wickets while surrendering only 19 runs in the entire quota of four overs.
Australia’s major weapon is bowling. Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, and Mitchell Starc form a formidable fast bowling combination. Adam Zampa will also benefit from the favorable conditions. On paper, Sri Lanka’s batting appears to be adequate. In the previous match, Charith Asalanka scored the game-winning run with the help of Bhanuka Rajapaksa. Pathum Nissanka should be avoided. Sri Lanka has been in excellent form thus far in the competition and might be a tough opponent for Australia. Australia has more chances to win the match.
