Australia vs Sri Lanka 5th T20 Match Prediction, Dream 11 Prediction & Betting Tips, Odds and Live Score – 20 Feb 2022

The Australia-Sri Lanka T20I series has been decidedly one-sided, as was to be expected. This despite the fact that Australia are still a long way from their full-strength team. When they face Sri Lanka in the final match of the series, they’ll be hoping to secure a 5-0 win and end the series on a high. Australia vs Sri Lanka 5th T20 Match Prediction

20th February 2022 at Melbourne Cricket Ground is the date for the fifth and final match of the series between Australia and Sri Lanka. However, Sri Lanka had hoped that the change in venue would bring about a change in fortunes. It is expected that they will go all out for a consolation win in this upcoming match. There’s no doubt this is going to be an exciting matchup.

AUS vs SL Team Previews


Since the beginning of the series, Australia has been the more dominant team. Moreover, they’ve won all four games with a resounding dominance. Since losing to England in the ICC World Twenty20, Australia has gone undefeated in international competition. Before the World Cup, which begins in October, they will have a chance to nail down their starting lineup in this game.

With their frontline bowlers rested, we expected Australia to be a little lighter in the bowling department, but they were actually quite good, especially in the second half of the innings. Spinners in particular did an excellent job of stifling Sri Lankan for runs and taking wickets during the match. Glenn Maxwell’s run-out was the highlight of the day in the field for the Red Sox, as well.

It has been difficult for the Australians to perform at their best in the batting department so far in the series. Experimentation to open with Ashton Agar is unlikely to be abandoned in this match despite its failure so far. Ben McDermott has also struggled to replicate his Big Bash League form. Josh Inglis and Glenn Maxwell’s heroics in the previous match saved Australia from defeat and they will be hoping for better performances from their top order in the upcoming match.

Australians have a strong lead and everything is going their way perfectly for them. They’ll do anything to improve their batting performance so they can score big totals at the World Cup later this year. In order for the Australians to win the series 5-0, their batsmen must perform admirably.

Sri Lanka

It’s true that Sri Lanka is currently trailing 4-0 in the series, but they’ve actually performed better than the score indicates. However, Sri Lanka have done a decent job, with the exception of a few lapses in concentration. Similarly, Sri Lanka performed well in the first half of both innings in the previous match, but then relinquished the upper hand in the second.

When it comes to scoring runs with the bat, Sri Lanka has relied heavily on its top-order in each of its first four matches. Even though Nissanka and Asalanka have done a good job on the whole, they’ve had trouble closing the deal when it mattered most. Sri Lanka had 73 for 1 at the halfway point of their innings in the previous match, but they lost wickets quickly and ended up with 139 runs on the board. With the bat or the ball, Wanindu Hasaranga’s absence is clearly hurting them greatly.

On paper, Sri Lanka are a decent team, but their inability to handle pressure and perform well has been their Achilles’ Heel thus far. Moreover, they’ve been sluggish on the field thus far, giving the Aussies additional chances to reclaim the lead. Additionally, Sri Lanka’s World T20 preparations will be on the minds of the team as they look to win this match here. Overall, they’ve been outclassed by the Aussies, and they’ll need to step up their game to win a consolation game. This could be their best opportunity to do so, and if they can play to their potential, they should be able to win the fifth match of the series.

Sri Lanka Playing 11

AUS vs SL Betting Tips

Australia may be looking to tick off a few more things as far as experimentation is concerned with the completion of the current series. This upcoming match, on the other hand, will still be a priority for Sri Lanka because a 4-1 loss is better than a whitewash for the hosts. In this match, Australia is clearly the better team but Sri Lanka can still come away with a victory if they play to their potential. If they can do so in this match, they’ll be eager to do so in the previous one. Taking into account the odds and Sri Lanka’s recent improvement, a bet on the home team is the best bet here.
