Team News

Both sides are expected to remain unchanged.

Key Players

Charith Asalanka

After Pathum Nissanka in the third game, Asalanka is showing his ability to bat long. On a slow track, he is displaying patience and can go a long way if he finds consistency. He is another talent to watch out for and through this series, Sri Lanka suddenly finds itself with a group of talented batters finally showing up.

David Warner

David Warner was all that stood in between Sri Lanka’s quest for victory. He was heartbreakingly dismissed for 99, but has finally done enough to show that he can bat in the subcontinent. With Warner back in form, Australia can be a little more stable at the top and they will hope he continues to bat with the same tempo and rhythm.

Sri Lanka vs Australia Match Prediction

Australia’s middle-order is looking very shaky against spin. They are getting starts but struggling to bat through and with the batting light, it may be tough to get enough runs to fight.

Match Prediction: Sri Lanka will win the match
