Series: Australia vs Sri Lanka
Venue: The Gabba, Brisbane
Date: October 30, 2019
Time: 01:40 PM IST
After a thrashing defeat in the first T20I at Adelaide, Sri Lanka will look to make a strong comeback in the second T20I against Australia at Brisbane. The visitors came into this series on the back of a fantastic 3-0 series victory in Pakistan and almost defended a low total of 131 in the practice T20 match against Prime Minister's XI as well. But here they were back to the Sri Lanka we have been familiar with for the past couple of years. They not only conceded a 200-plus total to Australia but also failed to put up a fight with the bat. They were restricted to a paltry total of 99/9 and that sums up the story of their struggle.
