AUS vs SL Dream11 team prediction: Fantasy cricket tips for Australia vs Sri Lanka 2nd T20I
A horror performance in the first T20I against Australia that saw Sri Lanka suffering a 134-run defeat would've sent spine down the chills of the visitors. David Warner, who struggled the entire Ashes series against England, was back among runs as he scored an unbeaten century to mark his return to the shortest format for the national team.
There were plenty of positives to take for Australia, but sadly only learnings for Sri Lanka. The second T20I in Gabba hence remains a must-win contest if the Islanders are to make a comeback in the series and prove that the 3-0 thumping of World No. 1 T20I side Pakistan was no fluke.
The second T20I between Australia and Pakistan will begin at 1:40 PM IST. The pitch is expected to have good bounce and carry which will suit the Aussies a lot more than the Lankans. The team winning the toss should elect to bat first and it is expected to be another high-scoring game.
