SL vs AUS Risky Captaincy Choices:
Green was impressive in the Ashes 2021/22 and Pakistan series earlier this year with the contribution in both departments.
The Sri Lanka skipper is known for resilience in the crease and can churn out runs in a consistent manner, but lately has not been up to the mark.
Players you should avoid:
Although he is a proven performer in the longest format, Starc is coming into this game after recovering from injury and is devoid of enough match practice.
