SL v AUS Match Preview:
The recently returned from IPL with an impressive performance, and all eyes will be on Bhanuka Rajapaksa to take things into his control. Pathum Nissanka and Charith Asalanka have been in decent touch lately.
However, it'll be the bowlers that will grab the most eyeballs - Wanindu Hasaranga, Dushmantha Chameera, and Maheesh Theekshana; all had a great IPL 2022.
Australia, too, have got their world cup winning team back, barring Pat Cummins and Adam Zampa. Steve Smith has been given the license to kill which might mean Australia will be looking to up the run rate in the middle overs.
Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc make up a lethal bowling pair. While Hazlewood is a terrific defensive bowler, Starc has the knack of picking wickets with both new and old ball.
