The Australia cricket team has already arrived in Sri Lanka where they will play three T20Is, five ODIs and two Test matches. Over a month-long tour will kick off with the first T20I which will be played at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo from June 7. The match is scheduled to begin at 7 PM IST.
The last time Australia played a T20I match in Sri Lanka was in 2021. In fact, Sri Lanka haven't toured the nation since then. Overall, Australia have won four of their last five T20Is against Sri Lanka
Australia travelled to Pakistan in March-April this year and won a 3-Test series 1-0. They went down fighting 1-2 in the ODIs but ended the tour with a 3-wicket win over Pakistan in the only T20I.
The visitors will look to take some inspiration from the Pakistan tour to do well in Sri Lanka where they have managed to win 21 out of their 50 matches across formats. The Australian team will feature the likes of captain Aaron Finch. Glenn Maxwell, Davi Warner, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and others. Sri Lanka will be led by all-rounder Dasun Shanaka. As we gear up for the first T20I, I have brought to you the best three betting tips from the SL vs AUS 1st T20I head-to-head encounter.
Mentioned below is the top team bet from the SL vs AUS head-to-head contest.
With the destructive duo of Aaron Finch and David Warner opening for Australia, this is one of the easiest bets to make. In their last five matches, Australia have scored 14 (Aaron Finch and David Warner), 3 (Ben McDermott and Finch), 3 (McDermott and Ashton Agar), 2 (Finch and Ben McDermott) and 10 (Finch and McDermott). It's clear that things change drastically once Finch and Warner are batting together.
The duo have scored 1210 runs together at an average in excess of 36 and are the seventh best pair (according to number of runs scored) in the history of T20I cricket.
Aaron Finch has played a total of 89 T20Is to score 2741 runs at an average of 34.69. He carried a strike rate of 144.87 in the format. David Warner, on the other hand, has played 88 T20Is to score 2554 runs at an average of 32.74 and strike rate of 140.48. Scoring over 5.5 runs against a very average Sri Lanka bowling attack on an expected flat surface should not at all be difficult for Warner and Finch who are coming fresh from IPL 2022 in India.
If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match to grab the odds of 1.80 and place your bet on Australia to score over 5.5 runs in the first over from SL vs AUS 1st T20I head-to-head encounter.
David Warner and Glenn Maxwell are my top two player betting tips for the 1st SL vs AUS T20I. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.
David Warner is simply one of the greats of the game and his records in all the formats speak for themselves. The 35-year-old has played 88 T20Is to score 2554 runs at an average of 32.74 and strike rate of 140.48. The southpaw has one hundred and 21 fifties to his name. Overall, he is only one of the seven players to score over 10000 T20 runs. David Warner has played 325 T20 matches and scored 10740 runs at an average of 38.08.
Warner had a tremendous IPL 2022 season where he top-scored for his new franchise Delhi Capitals with 432 runs in 12 matches. He averaged 48.00 and carried a strike rate of 150.52 in the period. Overall, he was the 12th highest run-scorer in IPL 2020. It's obvious that Warner will be entering the tournament with a lot of confidence.
Further, the New South Wales-born has played 13 T20I matches against Sri Lanka to score 512 runs at an average of 56.89. At the R Premadasa Stadium, Warner has scored 156 runs at an average of 26.00 from seven innings.
Considering all the aforementioned fact, scoring over 25.5 runs will not be difficult for David Warner. Our affiliate partner Pari Match is offering the odds of 1.87 for the same.

Glenn Maxwell also had a decent season with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the IPL 2022. The hard-hitting superstar of the game, scored 301 runs in 13 matches at an average of 27.36. His strike rate was a colossal 169.10. Overall, Glenn Maxwell has played 84 T20Is to score 1982 runs at 30.96.
The 33-year-old is one of the three batsmen to score three or more international T20I hundreds. Overall, the Melbourne-born has the vast experience of playing in 308 T20s which has seen him score over 8000 runs.
Glenn Maxwell has played only 10 T20I innings against Sri Lanka in 2016. He has scored 424 from it at 60.57. The white-ball gas featured in only T20I match at the R Premadasa stadium. Opening the innings in 2016, Maxwell scored 66 off 29 balls in the match as Australia won by four wickets. Maxwell most certainly looks to score over 20.5 runs in his second outing at the venue.
