Australia vs Sri Lanka Preview, Predictions & Betting Advice


Women’s T20 World Cup hosts Australia take on Sri Lanka at the WACA in Perth on Monday. Both sides go into the clash having lost their opening matches of the tournament.

The last time the two sides clashed was in October 2019, with the Australians claiming a massive 132-run victory in Sydney.

Australia Form & News


Defending champions Australia will be kicking themselves after losing their opening match of the Women’s T20 World Cup to India. The Indians posted a score of 132/4, but the tournament hosts fell short by 17 runs in their chase. 

The hugely impressive Alyssa Healy top scored with 51 off 35 balls, but her knock was not enough in the end.

While Healy has a great knock under her belt already, Beth Mooney will be relishing the chance to get at the Sri Lankan attack. Mooney has scored 393 runs in her last 10 T20 matches, at an average of 56.14.

The in-form pair of Healy and Mooney open the batting together, so it could be a long 20 overs for the Sri Lankans if they are able to get going.

Australia have won 4 of their last 7 T20 matches, notably beating India, England, and South Africa in that time.
