Australia would be hoping to build on their momentum from their win over South Africa when they face an exciting Sri Lankan side in The T20 World Cup 2021 on Thursday, October 28. The Aussies were clinical in their victory over the Proteas and although there was an instance of wobbly batting, it is most likely to not get repeated when they clash with Sri Lanka. The latter on the hand, have looked very confident with the bat, chasing down a 170+score against Bangladesh in style. This clash is going to be an interesting one but it might just be slightly tilted in favour of Australia, who have more experience in their ranks.
