Australia vs Sri Lanka 3rd T20I live cricket match telecast and streaming can be watched from 19:20 local time, 8:50 GMT and 13:50 IST.
Host Australia didn’t expect that Sri-Lankan team would defeat them in the series and won two matches of KFC international 3-T20I series. However those two games were exceptional and in the last overs, Sri Lanka registered victories in close contest.
Aussies need to score more runs than 168 or 173 to put pressure on Sri Lanka which is in team rebuilding phase and youngsters have done well. Meanwhile good thing for SL is that middle order batsman Asela Gunaratne scored brilliant half century in the run chase in both games. Dilshan Munaweera also scored excellent 44 runs in the first match that helped visitors to be in the game.
Aaron Finch’s young Australian team needs play for the pride of the nation as home team already lost the series and would play third match for pride. Middle order has to play well for Aussies as top three batsmen scored good runs for Men in Yellow. Openers Finch and Klinger gave 76 runs start in 10 overs which set good platform for upcoming batsmen to score quick runs.
However middle and lower order batsmen tried hard to score quickly but couldn’t do it. Henriques, Turner, Faulkner and Paine need to make some good runs.
Aaron Finch (Captain), Ben Dunk, Pat Cummins, Billy Stanlake, Travis Head, Moises Henriques, James Faulkner, Mitchel Klinger, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Tim Paine (wicket-keeper), Ashton Turner, Adam Zampa.
