Team News:

Australia:

Finch and his men will be looking to bounce back after a big defeat in their opening encounter against the Kiwis. The batting collapse causes damage to their net run rate which they will definitely look to recover from now onwards. However, the good news for the side is their key player Glenn Maxwell scored some runs in the last match after suffering a bad patch since the start of the year.

Coming to the bowlers, except Hazlewood each and every bowler leaked runs against the Kiwis which is a matter of concern for the Aussie side. Australia will be looking to capitalize on crucial moments to grab a win here and make a comeback. The group is looking solid and also a challenging one. Will the defending champions be able to grab their first win here at Perth Stadium?

Sri Lanka:

Meanwhile, for the Lankans, Shanaka and his team will be looking to keep their winning momentum which they started in their first round of the tournament. After an initial defeat, the Lankans have to grab back-to-back wins in spite of losing some of their crucial players, especially the bowlers. Hasaranga is looking good with Kushal Mendis, who smashed two consecutive half-centuries, and is in his best form, and Lankans are climbing toward the Semis.

Must have to mention Theekshana, who is scalping one or more wickets in every game so far in the tournament. Each and every bowler picked a wicket in their first Super 12 encounter against the Irish side. So, the Lankans have to keep their momentum against the Aussie side which is currently coming from a huge defeat.
