ANDREW FIDEL FERNANDO Preview
It may not be very New Zealand in the field but they have their catch making crucial saves. All this could brow beat Russia Sri Lanka who are over matched again. But it is not so. Sri Lanka is still talking about "peak at the right time" and makes incremental progress. They have three wins on the run. Even if they have misplaced more players to injury in the last 10 days what they have lost windows in parties feel that his campaign is picking up traction.
As good as Sri Lanka feel after comprehensive victories against Bangladesh and England Australia has released the unit more cohesive through the tournament. It is important to point out that their key players also have form. Mitchell Johnson took four wickets against Afghanistan. Mitchell Starc became the New Zealand party almost on their own in Auckland. David Warner has recent racing just like Glenn Maxwell. The group of students of Michael Clarke and Steven Smith does not need much to awaken.
Both teams now have enough victories to his credit to advance into quarter finals something simple. The team that wins on Sunday will ensure a place in the quarter finals and the other will be left to beat Scotland in the week coming to re position themselves in the knockouts. Australia defeat also means that it is likely to face a semi final against New Zealand in Auckland instead of a Sydney home game.
Victory on Sunday also raised chances of finishing higher in the group what seems likely to be an advantage the way in which the other group is developing. Both captains say that they are not thinking of those who would prefer to face in the quarter finals but it is likely that you want to avoid the India and South Africa for as long as possible.
Information from Teams
There are signs Australia were surprised by drying the cover of Sydney which leads to suggestions Shane Watson can return to the XI for this match while it looks set to play his first match in this world Xavier Doherty. Mitchell Marsh and Josh Hazelwood are men more likely to make way.
1 David Warner, 2 Aaron Finch, 3 Steven Smith, 4 Michael Clarke (Captain), 5 Glenn Maxwell, 6, Brad Haddin (sem), 7 Shane Watson / Mitchell Marsh 8James Faulkner, 9 Mitchell Johnson, 10 Josh Hazlewood / XavierDoherty, 11 Mitchell Starc
Sri Lanka are without Demuth Karunaratne who is out of the tournament and RanganaHerath who is out of the party and will necessarily have to make two changes. They can be seen playing two spinners and four players at all, but from Tillakaratne Dilshan specialists has bowling effectively during the past two weeks Angelo Mathews can boost Dilshan he and Thisara Perera 8-3 banking combination to cross 20 overs. Witha number of right-handers in the Australia top order new incoming SeekkugePrasanna is more likely to play than Sachithra Senanayake if only a first spinner line highlight.
Sri Lanka (likely):
1 Tillakaratne Dilshan, 2 Lahiru Thirimanne, 3 Kumar Sangakkara(weeks), 4 Dinesh Chandimal, 5, Angelo Mathews (capt.) 6 Mahela Jayawardene, , 7 UpulTharanga / Sachithra Senanayake, 8 Thisara Perara, 9, LasithMalinga, 10 Seekkuge Prasanna ,11 Suranga Lakmal
In the underline
To be in the order of batting, wherever he plays in the world Lahiru Thirimanne anywhere has found ways to contribute while other young batsmen have not chained significant scores. Had not been at his best during the tour of New Zealand, but in four World Cup innings so far have two fifties and a career high 139. Major tournaments seem to bring out the best of it but your form will be tested by an attack from high quality in Sydney. If it is able to maintain its winning streak relieving the pressure on the elderly of Sri Lanka, higher-order it is likely that continue to flourish.
Aaron Finch was the main architect of Australia against England mammoth score on the first day of the World Cup but since then has been short of time in the Middle due to bad weather as well as poor hits. Usually Finch has chosen tracks faster and players of fast bowling, as the statistical breakdown of his career. He will be desperate to resume execution of decisions after two scores below 15 but the Sri Lanka attack can be a challenge for him in a dry cover.
