AUS-W vs SL-W 1st T20I Preview Dream11 Prediction. Australia Women vs Sri Lanka Women 1st T20I Dream11

The world’s premier team, Australia, begin their blockbuster home season. Finishing with the World T20 in February/March, in which the Women’s team is hoping for a world record crowd at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, another huge opportunity awaits Meg Lanning’s team to write another great chapter in their amazing story.

First on the horizon is Sri Lanka. The sub-continent team begin as rank outsiders, especially given Australia’s merciless 6-0 drubbing of West Indies in the Caribbean’s unrelenting heat and humidity. Nonetheless, this is a chance for the Sri Lankans to test themselves against the world’s best, ensuring they gain experience and confidence ahead of the World T20 beginning in a few months’ time.

Key to an Australia win

Australia’s magnificent batting on paper should mean a difficult outing for Sri Lanka’s bowlers. However, the challenge for the Aussies will be to hit the ground running straight away after plenty of time spent overseas in recent times. Alyssa Healy, as always, remains a huge threat at the top, and with Ellyse Perry and Meg Lanning hitting the ball beautifully with centuries in the Caribbean, Australia’s top four can set the game up.

Also, the variety and depth in Australia’s attack gives skipper Lanning plenty of options to turn to. With Sri Lanka a side often unable to score rapidly, Australia’s bowlers can put the squeeze that can turn into wickets. The Aussies were able to rip through a quality England side earlier in 2019, and will be backed to do the same against Sri Lanka.

Key to a Sri Lanka win

To cause an almighty upset, Sri Lanka need a Chamari Atapattu special. With nearly 4,000 international runs under her belt, the Sri Lankan captain has a key role to play in helping her side get through the powerplay and then into their innings. What kind of support can she get from the likes of Yasoda Mendis, Hansima Karunaratne and Shashikala Siriwardena to help set a platform? Then, who can play a key role in finishing the innings strongly?

Also, can Sri Lanka’s medium pacers build pressure on Australia’s magnificent top order? Sri Lanka’s best bet will be to force as many dots as possible, luring the Aussies into forceful strokeplay which can create wicket-taking opportunities. The likes of Udeshika Prabodhani possess quite a bit of experience, which is very much needed in this one.
