Can Australia get off to a winning start against Sri Lanka, or will the touring side be able to build upon their 3-0 triumph over Pakistan? Read on for our best bets for this T20 clash. 

Australia vs Sri Lanka Predictions 

Australia vs Sri Lanka 

Australia return to cricketing action on Sunday as they host Sri Lanka at the Adelaide Oval in the first T20 of the series. This will be the first time Australia have played a competitive game against a side since they lost to England in the fifth and final Ashes Test. While they did taste defeat in that game, the loss did not stop the side from retaining the Ashes urn as they finished an impressive summer of Test cricket. Sri Lanka meanwhile arrive following a superb run of T20 victories over world number one ranked side Pakistan with wins by 64 runs, 35 runs and 13 runs seeing the side secure a resounding 3-0 series win. That series win saw Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga secure player of the series, with figures of 2/20, 3/38 and 3/21 seeing the spinner almost finish with a third of the total wickets taken by the home side. The question will be whether he can continue his spinning-exploits in Australian conditions, with the tops not doing anywhere near as much for spin bowlers as they would have been doing in Sri Lanka over the early part of October. 

Australia vs Sri Lanka Betting Tips

This one has an Australian win written all over it. Sri Lanka’s recent T20 series triumph over Pakistan was incredibly impressive, but they played their own conditions perfectly, with the touring side struggling to come to terms with the tops they played on. However, Australia pitches are more about fast and aggressive bowling, of which Australia have some of the very best in the world. Of course, spinners will come into the game if the pitches do begin to crack, but we feel that the likes of Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins will have a field day on these pitches. 

Starc in particular will be raring to go in this one as he was given very little chance to make an impact on the Ashes across the summer despite taking 27 wickets at the 2019 Cricket World Cup, and he will feel he should be given the chance to carry on his wicket taking run in limited overs cricket. With this in mind, we feel backing Starc to finish as Australia’s top wicket taker in the match is a good bet, especially if he can get up to his aggressive and quick best with the ball.
