Australia can take a giant step towards qualifying for the semi-finals of the 2021 T20 cricket World Cup with a win over Sri Lanka. Join The Roar for live scores from 1am (AEDT).

Sri Lanka had to make to the Super 12 the hard way after being placed in the Group matches to qualify for this stage of the tournament.

They had easy wins over Ireland and the Netherlands and then made it three from three with an impressive five-wicket victory over Bangladesh in their first Super 12 match.

Australia will be wary of their batting after they managed to chase down 171 against Bangladesh – a big total compared to the majority of the matches in the tournament so far.

Charith Asalanka smashed 80 off 49 balls at no.3 and will be the key once again for Sri Lanka.

Australia have their own firepower but desperately need it to work up the top with Aaron Finch and David Warner still not quite clicking.

A solid start by the Aussies will make things much easier for the likes of Steve Smith and Mitch Marsh to anchor the innings in the middle overs.

Marcus Stoinis proved against South Africa that he’s more than capable of finishing the innings and he’s the trump card for the Aussies who will be chasing again.

It promises to be another intriguing game in a World Cup that has thrown up plenty of surprises already.
