Sri Lanka will take on Australia in the second T20I of the three-match series at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. After a disappointing performance from the home side in the opening game, the series is on the line and hence, the island nation will have to come up with a better plan. Sri Lanka’s batting department was cruising at one stage but suffered a massive collapse and that took the momentum entirely from them.

On the other hand, the Australian side was dominant in the first game in both the batting and bowling department and a ten-wicket victory definitely proved that statement too. The Men in Yellow have a strong batting line-up and their playing XI looks much more composed at the moment in terms of balance.

Pitch Report

R Premadasa has been a high scoring venue usually, however, the previous game saw a little bit of assistance for the fast bowlers. Going by the result in the first game, the skipper that wins the toss will be looking to chase down which looks much relatively easier than posting totals.
