Australia won the toss and elected to field in their second match of the T20 World Cup Super Twelve on Thursday (October 26th) against Sri Lanka. Both the teams are coming down in this match with the XI of the previous match. Aussie pacer Mitchell Starc is playing in this match despite the fear of injury. Mahesh Thiksana also got a chance in the Sri Lankan team.
Australia got off to a great start by beating South Africa by 5 wickets. Ajira wants to maintain that winning streak in the second match as well. Five-time ODI World Cup champions Australia. However, they are very unlucky in T20. The team has not won a single World Cup title yet. This time Aji Shibir is progressing well in that mission in Super Twelve. Aaron Finch’s opponent in the second match is Sri Lanka. The Lankans also have fond memories of winning the first match. So Aaron Finch’s forces want to be careful.
Experienced batsman David Warner has not been doing well lately. He is not getting a run at all with the bat. That is why there is a lot of criticism about him. But Warner is not worried about this at all. He believes that his bat will burn just in time. The Aussie cricketer said, “I am not having a good time.” I know many people are criticizing me. But I hope I can respond to all the criticism quickly. For now, I am thinking about the Sri Lanka match. If we can beat the Lankans, we will be able to go further in the semi-finals.
Australia got bad news before the match. JK has an old injury while batting at the ICC Academy in Dubai. Mitchell Starc was out for 6 months due to injury before the World Cup. The team management is uncertain about getting him in this match. Opponent Sri Lanka lost to Bangladesh and started the event.
