Sri Lanka vs Australia 2nd T20I: After a thrashing in the first T20I, Sri Lanka will face Australia again today in the 2nd T20I at Colombo. The hosts will look to level the three-match series in this important game. 

SL vs AUS: Match Details


  • Date – Wednesday, June 08, 2022
  • Time – 7:00 PM IST
  • Venue – R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo

SL vs AUS Match Preview:

Sri Lankan batting collapsed dramatically in the first game after a great start to the inning. From 100/1 at one stage, Sri Lanka got all out for 128. However, the top three - Danushka Gunathilaka, Pathum Nissanka, and Charith Asalanka - as expected, looked in fantastic touch in the first half. 

With not many runs on the board, the Sri Lankan bowlers, too, looked out of sorts. However, Maheesh Theekshana and Wanindu Hasaranga will keep the Australian batters on their toes throughout the series. 

Australia openers - Aaron Finch and David Warner - finished the game without much fuss. Watch out for Steve Smith in this game, who has been asked to perform a new role of hitting the ball hard right from the start. 

Josh Hazlewood was expected to be at his lethal best and he displayed it in the first game. He'll continue to remain a threat throughout the series. With Mitchell Starc not being part of the 2nd T20I, Jhye Richardson is likely to replace him.
