Australia will begin a three-match series against Sri Lanka on Tuesday. Three Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is), five One-Day Internationals (ODIs), and two Test matches are scheduled for the visit. The tour had been in question for a long time owing to political tensions in the island nation as a result of their economic crisis, but with the circumstances recently normalizing, Australia chose to visit the country.

Sri Lanka visited Australia earlier this year for a five-match T20I series, which they lost. Australia is ranked fifth in the T20 rankings, while Sri Lanka is ranked ninth. It will be Australia’s first visit to Sri Lanka since 2016. The long tour’s smallest format will be crucial since it will serve as a dress rehearsal for the T20 World Cup in October 2022.

Sri Lanka is now experiencing political and economic instability. Despite reports that the Australian cricket team was hesitant to visit the island nation, Cricket Australia decided to go forward with the tour.

Meanwhile, veteran fast bowler Lasith Malinga has been named Sri Lanka Cricket’s bowling technique coach for the ODIs and T20s against Australia. In the ICC T20 rankings, Australia is now ranked fifth, while Sri Lanka is ranked ninth.

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, has named their starting XI for the opening T20 against Australia.

Cricket Australia is sitting their Test captain, thus the guests will be without Pat Cummins for the shorter format. Adam Zampa will be unable to participate in the entire tour due to the birth of his child. A few of their key players will return after missing the series against Pakistan owing to the 2022 IPL.

Sri Lanka, on the other hand, has brought back players Wanindu Hasaranga and Bhanuka Rajapaksa, who were both unable to participate in the India trip. Hasaranga was afflicted with Covid-19, and Rajapaksa was passed over owing to fitness issues.
