Australia will square off against Sri Lanka on February 13th, Tuesday to play the 3rd match of the T20I series. The match will take place at the Manuka Oval in Canberra. Have a look at the top betting tips from the AUS vs SL match prediction.
Australia have taken a 2-0 lead in the series after a thriller super win over Sri Lanka on Sunday. Batting first, the hosts posted a total of 164/6 on the board. In response, Sri Lanka reached 164/8 at the conclusion of 20 overs. But the visitors could only manage to score 5/1 in the super over. The hosts chased down the target in just three balls and continued their winning streak. Josh Hazlewood took a wicket and leaked just five runs in the super over. Opener Pathum Nissanka played a brilliant 73 run knock off 53 deliveries while Dasun Shanaka in the end did it all to keep the Lankans alive in the series as he scored a quickfire 34 off 19. The Lankans gave their best and nearly stole the match after losing the opening match of the series by 20 runs. If we look at the H2H matches, Australia have won all the last five games.
The 23 year old opener Pathum Nissanka is my first pick from the AUS vs SL match. The youngster is the highest run getter in the ongoing five match T20I series at the moment. He has added 109 runs to his tally of total runs at an average of 54.50 from two games. The right handed opener has piled on 411 runs so far in his T20I career in 14 games at an average of 31.61 which also includes two half centuries. Before coming to the series, Sri Lanka played a three match ODI series against Zimbabwe in which the youngster racked up 146 runs from three games at an average of 48.66. The youngster is riding with confidence and will look to carry forward his good form in the third match as well. We suggest you bet on Pathum Nissanka through our affiliate partner Pari Match if you wish to get some handsome returns.
Josh Hazlewood who is also called the modern day Glenn McGrath is my next pick from the AUS vs SL match. The New South Wales based cricketer is known for his accuracy and has a smooth run up to the crease similar to McGrath. The 31 year old fast bowler is the leading wicket-taker at the moment in the ongoing T20I series against Sri Lanka. The right arm seamer was brilliant with the leather in the curtain raiser of the series on Friday. He picked up four wickets and leaked only 12 runs. In the second match of the series on Sunday, Hazlewood’s top class performance in the super over helped the Aussies register a win over the Lankans. Hazlewood leaked just five runs in the super over. Hazlewood was always awarded the player of the match award for his brilliant spell of 3/22. So far in the series, Hazlewood has scalped 7 wickets at an economy of 4.25. Hence, we expect Josh Hazlewood to deliver with the leather on Tuesday. Pari Match will surely offer the best of odds from the AUS vs SL match prediction for you to pick.
Australia’s limited overs skipper Aaron Finch is my last pick from the Australia vs Sri Lanka match. The Victorian cricketer has been in top notch form ever since he was handed the responsibility of leading Australia in white ball cricket. Finch is known for providing explosive starts for his side in white ball cricket. The 35 year old opener brings a fair amount of experience to the side. So far in his T20I career, he has piled on 2641 runs from 85 games at an average of 35.21. He has twice held the record of the highest individual score in the shortest format of the game. The Aussies skipper got off to a good start in the 2nd game of the series but was dismissed cheaply for 25. The right handed opener has amassed 287 runs from 11 games at an average of 26.09 against Sri Lanka. Before coming to this series, Aaron Finch was playing for Melbourne Renegades in the BBL wherein he scored 386 runs in 11 games at an average of 38.60 which also includes four fifties. This clearly implies that the Victorian has been in fine form and therefore we suggest you pick Aaron Finch in player bets through our affiliate partners Pari Match if you wish to take home some handsome returns.
