Australia have already claimed the three-match T20I series and it remains a formality for the visiting team. However, Sri Lanka are desperate for a win after two thumping losses. The hosts would have taken some confidence from the second match after a 10-wicket loss in the first game. Sri Lanka kept the Aussies in check as Hasaranga took a 4-fer. But Matthew Wade stayed till the end to see his side home. Nonetheless, Sri Lanka will hope to make it 1-2 rather than 0-3.
Batters have not found it easy to score runs in the series so far. However, David Warner and Aaron Finch completely blew Sri Lanka away in the second innings of the first T20I. Thus, these two can be included in the fantasy team. From Sri Lanka, Pathum Nissanka and Charith Aslanka have looked fearless making them valuable picks for the fantasy team. From the all-rounder’s section, Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka and Australia’s Mitchell Marsh can prove to be good choices. Glenn Maxwell has also done well with the ball. Meanwhile, in bowling, Wanindu Hasaranga, Kane Richardson, Jhye Richardson, and Josh Hazlewood look like feasible options to go with.
