Sri Lanka host Australia in the battle for the Warne-Muralitharan Trophy in Galle. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary of Day 1 from 2:30pm AEST.

The picturesque Galle International Cricket Stadium is the venue for what should be some engrossing Test cricket.

We don’t really know what to expect although the Australian team is predicting that it will turn from ball 1.

There was talk during the week about which spin bowlers the Aussies would go with. Pat Cummins confirmed that Mitch Swepson got the nod alongside Nathan Lyon.

It was of course, on this tour just over a decade ago that Lyon (with hair) burst onto the international scene dismissing Kumar Sangakkara with his first ball in Test cricket.

On that occasion, Lyon came into the attack in the 15th over of the first Test and we could see spin even earlier than that this time around.

The last time Australia played a Test in Sri Lanka was 2016 and it was the home side who got some revenge on the Aussies.

They won the series 3-0 on the back of Rangana Herath taking 28 wickets at the ridiculous average of 12.75.

Herath has, of course, retired now but Sri Lanka have plenty of up and coming talent including Dunith Wellalage. He was named as a standby player for this series but Sri Lanka will be tempted to play him

The 19-year-old slow left-arm orthodox bowler picked up 9 wickets in the ODI series and proved a handful for the Aussies.

32-year-old Jeffrey Vandersay is also in the squad but is yet to play a Test. The leg-break bowler has taken 25 wickets in his ODI career.

As we saw in Pakistan earlier this year, all the talk of spin can actually overshadow Australia’s strength which is currently pace bowling.

If Mitchell Starc is fit he’ll be a handful again with reverse swing and of course captain Pat Cummins can cause some damage. He’s been kept relatively fresh this tour to put in the hard yards for the series.

It should be a fascinating contest. We’ll have the news from the toss and the all-important final XIs when they’re announced.
