Aaron-Finch-Lasith-Malinga

Australia returns to international action for the first time since the Ashes as they start-off their 2020 T20 World Cup preparations. Sri Lanka, meanwhile, is hot off the back of a series whitewash victory in Pakistan, which followed clashes with Bangladesh and New Zealand.

In all three of their previous visits Down Under for a T20I series, Sri Lanka have left with victory.

The last success of the Islanders came in 2017 when their two final-ball successes in Melbourne and Geelong saw them secure a 2-1 victory.
