Preview 

Australia are set to face Sri Lanka in match 22 of the 20-20 World Cup on Thursday (October 28). Both the teams have managed to register victories in the Super 12 stage. Australia are coming from a tight win over South Africa. The victory should give relief to the team, considering their consecutive series defeats in this year’s T20Is.

Bowling led by Josh Hazlewood, Adam Zampa, and Pat Cummins looked good. The batting is a slight concern for the team with openers David Warner and Aaron Finch struggling for runs. Last match Steve Smith's valuable knock carried the team home but a good start by the openers will comparatively put less pressure on the middle order. 

The Lankan Lions, pn the other hand, have hardly put a foot wrong. The team has won four games on the bounce and are looking dangerous. Their bowlers have been exceptional with Maheesh Theekshana, and Wanindu Hasaranga leading the charge. The former didn’t play a game against Bangladesh due to side strain and it is not confirmed if he is fit for the next game.

Pitch Conditions

The match is going to be played at Dubai International Stadium. It will be a day-night game. Dubai track has looked good for batting with the average score being 145. Teams have preferred chasing due to the dew factor.

Weather Report

The forecast predicted is 32 degrees Celsius for Thursday (October 28). Evenings are comparatively cooler in Dubai.
