The Aussies would be smacking their lips at the sight of this Sri Lankan team. For so long the Sri Lankans have been going through transformation in an effort to find the next generation of Sangakkaras and Jayawardenes. The results have been poo, but hopes on the likes of Kaushal Silva and Dinesh Chandimal still remain. Don’t forget the steely batting of captain Angelo Mathews who relishes the home conditions.

With the number of injuries they had to endure, bowling is a huge worry for Mathews. The untried and untested combination of seamers will look to the wily old spin of Rangana Herath to give direction and returns. Watch out for the back-up spin of Dilruwan Perera who may give some headaches for the Aussie camp.

Coming to the visitors, there is a silent optimism in the Steve Smith led side who are without major worries. David Warner returns from a break due to injury and will relish the challenge of turning ball. Smith continues to be the fulcrum in the middle order, while Adam Voges may enjoy the challenging conditions as well.
With the ball, it would be the prospect of watching Mitchell Starc that should excite Australian fans. The combination of Josh Hazlewood and Starc is a nightmare for the batsmen and then there is the little matter of facing the much under-rated Nathan Lyon.

The visitors are heavy favorites to lift the trophy which is why there is little value on their win. An aggressive punt on them winning 3-0 could be one to look out for – odds of $5.50 with CrownBet.

Tip: Australia to Win Series 3-0 – $5.50 at CrownBet

Kaushal Silva and Warner are good punts to be the best batsmen for either sides. With the ball, it could be Starc at odds of $4.00 to lead Australia at CrownBet

Sri Lanka has been a happy hunting ground for the Australians and may continue to prove so. The bigger challenge for Lehmann’s troops lie ahead and they would definitely want to start well in the Emerald Island.
