Sydney: Jan 26, 2013
Australia captain George Bailey won the toss and elected to bat against Sri Lanka in the first T20 at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Saturday.
Sri Lanka, the World T20 runner-up as well as the current No.1 ranked T20I team have their pride at stake. Boasting a 4-2 winning record, the visitors will also know that a loss would push down down in the ranking charts. On the other hand, the hosts would like to get back to their winning ways after a topsy-turvy ODI series.
Australia: David Warner, Aaron Finch, Shaun Marsh, George Bailey (c), Adam Voges, Matthew Wade (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Ben Cutting, Mitchell Starc, Xavier Doherty, Ben Laughlin
Sri Lanka: Kushal Perera (wk), Tillakaratne Dilshan, Dinesh Chandimal, Mahela Jayawardene, Angelo Mathews (c), Lahiru Thirimanne, Jeevan Mendis, Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara, Lasith Malinga, Ajantha Mendis.
