Australia have proved why they are champions of ODI cricket. They lost test series by 3-0 but made strong comeback to win One Day Internationals comprehensively by 4-1. Current Australian t20 team captain and opener David Warner has said that these conditions are not easy for batsman to play shoots but one can use sweep as a good option to work with the ball.
Australia skipper Warner said, “In these conditions, you’re going to have to sweep, you need to use your feet, you’re going to have to watch the ball hard on to the bat where you can’t leave the ball because one is going to skid on.”
On the other hand home team Sri Lanka is struggling in the limited overs cricket. They were exceptional in the test series and whitewashed Aussies for the first time in history. But they failed completely in the 50-over cricket. Skipper Dinesh Chandimal believes that side can make comeback from the behind and give tough competition to Aussies in twenty20 series.
Dinesh Chandimal said, “We’ll learn from these mistakes and come back stronger. One series you are going to win, another series you are going to lose.”
