Australia captain Aaron Finch decided to bowl against Sri Lanka in the third and final T20I match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday.
It is to note that Australia have already clinched the three-match series, having registered commanding victories in the first and second T20Is by 134 runs and 9 wickets, respectively.
However, Australia miss their star all-rounder Glenn Maxwell, who has withdrawn from the ongoing T20I series to take a “short” break from cricket owing to mental health issues.
Maxwell had smashed a quickfire 62 off 28 balls in the first match in Adelaide.
Following the Sri Lanka series, the Aussies would be locking horns with Pakistan in three T20Is and two Test matches starting November 3.
Here are the Playing XIs of both the teams:
Sri Lanka (Playing XI): Kusal Perera (wicketkeeper), Kusal Mendis, Niroshan Dickwella, Avishka Fernando, Shehan Jayasuriya, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Oshada Fernando, Lakshan Sandakan, Lasith Malinga (captain), Nuwan Pradeep, Lahiru Kumara
Australia (Playing XI): David Warner, Aaron Finch (captain), Steven Smith, Ben McDermott, Ashton Turner, Alex Carey (wicketkeeper), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa
