Both the teams have won their opening match of Super-12. Both the teams will try to win this match and strengthen their claim of reaching the semi-finals. Second only to England in the Sri Lanka group. While Australia is in third place. Both the teams have won their respective opening matches chasing the target. However, Sri Lanka’s batting seems to be more stable and in rhythm as compared to Australia. The team topped its group in the qualifying round. In such a situation, this match is expected to be interesting. However, the role of weather and pitch will also be very important in this.
There is good news for the fans waiting for this match. There is no chance of rain in Dubai today. However, the weather will remain dry and hot. The wind speed can be 16 km per hour. The match is to be played under floodlights. In such a situation, the players of both the teams will at least get relief from the scorching heat. The temperature can remain between 35 to 36 degrees. At the same time, the humidity will be around 55 percent. In such a situation, the weather seems to be quite favorable for cricket.
Spinners can prove to be the trump card
It has become a matter of weather. On the other hand, if we talk about the pitch of the Dubai International Stadium, so far three matches of the T20 World Cup have been held here and the team chasing the target has won in all three. In such a situation, winning the toss here, the team would like to bat later. Spin bowlers can also get good help from the pitch here. We have seen this in the match between England and West Indies. In this match, the West Indies team was bundled out for just 55 runs. England spinners Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali took 6 wickets in the match. Later England easily achieved this target.
Easy to chase runs in Dubai
Even in the match against India in Dubai, Pakistan won by 10 wickets while chasing the target. In such a situation, this thing will definitely remain in the mind of the captains of both the countries at the time of toss. The effect of dew can also be seen in Dubai. However, it will be less than Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. Sri Lanka also have good spinners like Maheesh Theekshana and Wanindu Hasaranga. In such a situation, the path of Australian batsmen will not be easy.
