The same Sri Lanka team which recently whitewashed the top-ranked holder team in T20I considering the ICC Pakistan at their home venue, but when the time comes in Australia, the local team Australia whitewashed Sri Lanka in the T20I series! Now, they have seen the opposite side of the coin. Along with the T20I series, the Lions tour in Australia has finished. Now, the team Australia is preparing for another dual series against the Green Amry. According to the report, team Pakistan has already moved into Australia for the tournament.
So, if we consider the recently finished T20I series between Australia and Sri Lanka, Australia and Pak8istan will be benefitted. The Green Army can learn many things from these matches because they are going to face the same opponent.
