Final Verdict

Australia are firm favourites to win the match against Sri Lanka as they have a much stronger side at the moment when the two teams are compared with each other.

Prediction Author

In our opinion, the best tip here is Bhanuka Rajapaksa scoring over 18.5 runs @1.87 (Parimatch) as the left-hander has done well in the IPL which shows that his recent form is good. Also, he has done well against Australia in the last three games scoring 55 runs with an average of 55.0 which means it is more than likely that he will come good for his team once again in the first T20I against Australia.
