Perth [Australia], October 25 (ANI): Australian skipper Aaron Finch won the toss and opted to field first against Sri Lanka in their Group 1, Super 12 match of the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup at Perth on Tuesday.
This match is a must-win for Australia as they are heading into the match after losing to New Zealand in their campaign opener. On the other hand, Sri Lanka registered a win against Ireland at the start of their campaign.
Australian skipper Aaron Finch said at the toss, “We will bowl first, that is the best strategy on this surface and we cannot think too far away in the tournament as of now. Looks like a decent pitch with a good grass surface. Adam Zampa is out with illness, replaced by Ashton Agar.”
