SL-W vs AU-W Dream11 : Dominant and unforgiving Australia make for too big a proposition for Sri Lanka to battle against
Whilst Australia were always overwhelming favourites heading into this three match T20 series against Sri Lanka, a domination of the level they have exerted is not something which was fathomed by even the most ardent of Australia supporters. Having sealed the series with a comprehensive 9 wicket win in the second clash, Australia will be looking to emanate the same comprehensive display today as well and leave Sri Lanka thwarted in their efforts of putting on a challenge.
While Sri Lanka managed to muster up some kind of a fight n the first T20, the second one saw them reveal their true paper thin identity, being trounced and routed as they were slandered and decimated by Australia. The batting order fell apart, losing their way right from ball to collapse for a shambolic and meagre 84-8 while batting first, a target Australia needed just 10 overs to wipe out.
It wasn’t just the way Sri Lanka decided to go about their batting effort but rather the lacklustre display of fight from them which massively dejected from the side. The kept losing wickets at regular intervals with not one player interested in showing come kind of application and try to dig the side out of the blemished dirt they fought themselves covered in.
The set of events from that match don’t bode well for the side ahead of the culminating clash to be contested between the two sides today with Australia set to treat this one as far from an inconsequential clash as plausible. They’ll come hot out of the blocks today, looking to sweep the series 3-0 with the brunt of their side, a well round outfit set to be too much for a rattled, hurting and languishing Sri Lanka side to cope with.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Despite this being the third encounter being contested over here inside the space of a few days, the batting conducive conditions are there for all to see. The pacers do thrive on it with the new ball but once the shine and sheen goes away, the batters are allowed to flourish and pile on hefty runs on the scoreboard.
The side winning the toss will be looking to come out and field first and make the most of the initial pace friendly conditions.

SL-W vs AU-W Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
After scoring 21 runs in the previous match for her side, Australia’s Alyssa Healy is our pick in this facet. The wicket-keeper scored quick runs, making the most of Sri Lanka’s appalling batting unit and should put on a good display today as well.
SL-W vs AU-W Dream11 Batswomen
Following up her match winning century in the first match, Australia’s opener Beg Mooney came up with an unbeaten 28 in the second match, making her an instant pick for us in this encounter as well. Accompanying her is Eric Burns whose smashing effort of 30 in just 18 balls, one laden with 6 boundaries saw the two pile on a 49 run stand for the first wicket.
Meanwhile just the lone pick for us from Sri Lanka, completing our segment with Nilakshi de Silva from the side.
SL-W vs AU-W Dream11 All-Rounders
She didn’t get a chance to bat in the second match but her role in the bowling order as well saw her contribute with two wickets for the side, making Elyse Perry an instant pick for us. Not only is she one of the best all-rounders in the fraternity but it also a player whose imperious skill set makes her a player we just can’t ignore at any costs.
Meanwhile we finally compensate our side with the picks from Sri Lanka, picking up opener Chamari Atapattu who scored a century in the first match and with her bowling adequate overs as well, she becomes an instant pick for us along with Shashikala Siriwardene
SL-W vs AU-W Dream11 Bowling Order
With Sri Lanka being so abject, abysmal and appalling when it comes to batting, we had to bring in an entire trio for Australia for this match. Megan Schutt, Georgia Wareham and Tayla Vlaeminck all about the one wicket apiece for the side in the previous encounter, scrutinising Sri Lanka with their zestful with the three intertwining their skill set in unison.
The only wicket taker for Sri Lanka from the previous match, Oshadi Ranasinghe is going to be completing our Dream 11 side for this clash.
