In a three-match series on Australia’s most recent visit in 2016, Sri Lanka hammered australia. The Sri Lankans haven’t defeated a team with a higher ranking in their last 20 Test matches. The way Sri Lanka is turning things around you can also, by clicking on the link www.lotusfair.com. We should expect a close match since Australians are known for fighting hard and Sri Lankans are familiar with the playing surface.
Galle is expected to experience mild rain and cloudy weather between June 29 and July 3. The team batting first in the match will be delighted with at least 400 runs. Days four and five at this ground have been dominated by spinners. Under cloudy skies and throughout the morning session, the surface does provide some assistance to fast bowlers. In the fourth innings, the surface transforms into a minefield, making life challenging for spinners, making it one of the hardest wickets in the world to bat on. Most games at this field have been won by the teams batting first. On this surface, the captain who wins the toss should not hesitate to bat first.
When the opening game of a two-Test series begins on Wednesday in Galle, Sri Lanka will try to increase the suffering for injury-plagued Australia. Following a surprise 3-2 victory in the one-day series last week, Sri Lanka will look to a bowling assault heavy on spinners to give them the upper hand in the Test series. A side strengthened by the addition of Jeffrey Vandersay to their spin brigade of Lasith Embuldeniya, Praveen Jayawickrama, and Ramesh Mendis will be led by captain Dimuth Karunaratne.
The ODI series gave Pat Cummins and his side a taste of Sri Lanka’s strength; in order to succeed here, they must play with more heart. The side would have to bat passionately because the wicket will have a surface that supports spin. They have had success in the past against Sri Lanka, and Cummins would like to build on that success now. The addition of Steve Smith to the starting lineup will greatly benefit Australia. The promising leg-spinner Mitchell Swepson might get a chance to show off his skills, and the seasoned spinner Nathan Lyon will play a significant part for the visitors.
We have predicted Australia to win the 1st Test Match. The Sri Lankans impressed their fans with their victory in the ODI series. But it was another ball game, Australians have a good track record when it comes to test cricket. They have a strong batting lineup and high quality tempo attack. This will make them a favorite to win this competition.
