AUS vs SL 2022: Sri Lanka has finally announced their Playing XI for the first T20I against Australia. Sri Lanka’s three-match T20I series against Australia will begin with the first t20I on Tuesday in Colombo.
All-rounder Dasun Shanaka will Captain the T20I team with International stars Wanindu Hasaranga, Dushmantha CXhameera, Maheesh Theekshana, Chamika Karunaratne & Bhanuka Rajapaksa all named in the Playing XI.
Kusal Mendis & Pathum Nissanka will comprise their top order while young pacer Matheesha Pathirana is yet to make his debut for the National team. Matheesha Pathirana who bowls in a similar fashion to that of Lasith Malinga has grabbed a place in Sri Lanka’s T20I squad on the back of his impressive performance in his debut match for CSK in the IPL 2022. The last time Australia locked horns with Sri Lanka was in the five-match T20I series held in February 2022 in Australia. In Australia’s home T20I series the Kangaroos were successful in outclassing Sri Lanka by a 4-1 score.
Now With Australia touring Sri Lanka, the Island nation will try to settle the records in the conditions they are familiar with. Just a day ahead of the first t20I, Australia named their squad for the first T20I. Australia welcomed a full-fledged squad with just Adam Zampa & Pat Cummins left out of the Playing XI.
The three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka will begin with the first T20I at R Premadasa International Cricket Stadium. On the other hand, the second T20I will begin on June 8 at the same venue while the third T20I will be played on June 11 at the Pallekelle International Cricket Stadium.
