AUS vs SL Dream11 Team | Australia vs Sri Lanka 2nd Test Prediction, Team News, Playing 11

Australia have not won a series for 12 months (all formats) and would fancy their chances at Canberra’s Manuka Oval when they take on Sri Lanka in the second Test. They have been on the receiving end since the Sandpapergate Controversy.

Australia took a 1-0 lead in the two-match series with a dominant inning and 40-run victory in the first Test at the Gabba. It would reinvigorate Australia that lost their first series to India at home a few weeks back. The bowlers, especially Pat Cummins, set up the game for the hosts.It was a collective failure from the visiting Sri Lanka as the batsmen did not apply themselves to put enough on the board while the bowlers failed to stop Aussie batsmen from scoring. They must put on a better show of grit and determination in the second to stop Aussie from completing the clean sweep.

Pitch conditions: According to the Maunka Oval curator Brad van Dam, there should be no dearth of runs at Canberra.
