World Cup 2019: Sri Lanka Vs Australia


MATCH DETAILS

Sri Lanka Vs Australia, ICC World Cup 2019 Match 20
June 15, 2019, 03:00 pm IST

VENUE : Kennington Oval, London

DETAILS

Established in 1845, The Oval is one of the most iconic cricket venues in the world and a true heritage in the sport of cricket. The Oval can house over 25,000 people and was also the birthplace of the Ashes. Statistics at the Oval suggest that teams chasing have a better chance of winning ODIs. The pitch here is often demanding but the wickets are good. It also provides nice pace and bounce and in the English weather conditions, fast bowlers get a lot of swing.

PREVIEW

Sitting pretty in the top section of the points table, Australia will look to consolidate their favourable position when they take on lowly Sri Lanka in Match 20 of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019 in London on Saturday, 15 June.

With three wins from four matches, Australia increasingly look like strong contenders for a spot in the final four, but these are still early days and they will want to keep the foot on the pedal when they take on Sri Lanka at the Oval to build on that early advantage.

Sri Lanka, meanwhile, are placed fifth on the points table with one victory and a couple of washouts. In their two completed games, they've not looked a very challenging side, but could change perceptions about their chances with a solid performance against Australia.
