Preview:

Sri Lanka and Australia will face each other in the 1st fixture of the 3-match bilateral T20I series at R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo on Tuesday. Both teams went head-to-head earlier this year, with Australia winning the series by 4-1. In a one-off T20I against Pakistan, they chased down the target of 163 successfully. The key players for the team will be Mitchell Marsh and Josh Hazlewood.

After losing to Australia, Sri Lanka faced a 3-0 loss to India as well. But the home conditions would keep them confident ahead of this game. The likes of Pathum Nissanka and Wanindu Hasaranga are vital players for them.
