Australia takes on Sri Lanka in a five-match Twenty20 International series.


Despite Langer’s departure, Australia will attempt to move on.

On Friday, Australia takes on Sri Lanka in a five-match Twenty20 International series.

On Friday, the Sydney Cricket Ground will host the first of three Twenty20 internationals.

When they take the field against Sri Lanka on Friday in their first Twenty20 match since the controversial dismissal of coach Justin Langer, Australia will be looking to move on.

After the polarising resignation of coach Justin Langer, Australia will seek to move on when they take on Sri Lanka in their Twenty20 match on Friday. To recover after a long road trip that saw him lead Australia to the T20 World Cup win and an Ashes Test thrashing of England by an innings and a half, Langer decided to skip the five-match series. After failing to reach an agreement on an extension with Cricket Australia, he abruptly left the team last weekend, casting a pall on the opening match in Sydney.

Andrew McDonald, one of the front-runners to replace him, will serve as the team’s interim head coach while he is away.

To prepare for Australia’s next tour of Pakistan, David Warner and Mitchell Marsh have been rested from the World Cup final squad, which he assumes the responsibility for.

Ben McDermott, the Big Bash League’s leading run-scorer, will open the batting alongside Aaron Finch in his absence.

Josh Inglis, the team’s new third baseman, was also officially announced by Skipper Finch on Thursday.

When asked why he felt it was important for Australia to have a 35-year-old batsman at the top of the order like Ben McDermott, Finch stated, “Ben has been in amazing form so getting him there was really key for us.”

Inglis has also been a player who has been relegated to the bench.

It is a testament of how well he has played over the last few years that he has been selected for this honor.”

Only two changes have been made from the World Cup-winning XI.

Both Test captain Pat Cummins and Ashes hero Mitchell Starc lead the bowling assault, which Cummins denied being a part of on Wednesday.


As a result of leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga’s return after a one-day series absence with an injury, Sri Lanka’s Dasun Shanaka-led side are confident.

Despite Dushmantha Chameera leading the pace attack, Kusal Mendis has been isolated after testing positive for Covid-19 this week.

The 12-month ban Mendis received for violating coronavirus restrictions while touring England last year was overturned only last month, and he returned to the fold this month. Dinesh Chandimal is expected to step into the starting XI.

Shanaka said his squad intended to use the series to acquire a feel for Australian conditions ahead of the upcoming T20 World Cup, which will be held in Australia later this year.

It’s critical for the batsmen to perform well and gain confidence in this event, according to him.

In this competition, bowlers will learn what their limits are as a sport and how to handle themselves when they reach them.

A match in Canberra and two in Melbourne follow the first two at Sydney Cricket Ground.

Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Travis Head, Moises Henriques, Josh Inglis, Ben McDermott, Glenn Maxwell, Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson, Daniel Sams, Steve Smith, and Mitchell Starc make up the Australia team.

To name a few: Dasun Shanaka (captain), Charith Asalanka (vice-captain), Avishka Fernando (bowler), Pathum Nissanka (keeper), Danushka Gunathilaka (fielding), Kusal Mendis (midfielder), Janith Liyanage (fielding), Chamika Karunaratne (batting), Janith Liyanage (fielding), Kamil Mendis (fielding), Wanindu
