Date and Time:-October 16, 9:30 AM IST Telecast & Live Streaming:-Star Sports Network Venue:- Simonds Stadium, Geelong
Simonds Stadium has hosted only one T20I match so far, but a lot of domestic cricket has been played at the venue. Generally, the wicket offers true bounce where the batters will have a slight edge over the bowlers. The skipper winning the toss might want to have a bowl first.
Kusal Mendis will open the innings for Sri Lanka in the upcoming T20 World Cup. He had a decent Asia Cup where he amassed 155 runs in six games at an average of 25.83 with the best score of 60. Mendis will look to play an impactful knock in the first game.
Madushanka impressed everyone during the Asia Cup 2022. He scalped a total of six wickets in the same number of matches and bowled at an economy of 7.75 with the best figures of 3 for 24 that came against India.
NAM can win the toss and bowl
Scope upto: 150-170
