On Thursday, Australia will host the Sri Lankan team for the 1st Test match following a two-match Test series. After losing the Test series to India for the first time in Australia in 71 years, Australia are all set to lock horns against the struggling Sri Lanka who are yet to win a game across any format in 2019.
Both the teams are coming after facing defeats in their previous clashes at home with the Lankans getting battered by the English and the Aussies suffering a Test series defeat at the hands of Virat Kohli’s men.
Aussies will be missing their vice-captain and pace bowler Josh Hazlewood, with David Warner and Steve Smith serving the last couple of months of their respective suspensions while Lankans will be without their talisman all-rounder Angelo Matthews and their quick bowler Nuwan Pradeep who suffered a hamstring in the warm-up match in Hobart ruling him out of the series.
