Highlights SL vs AUS 2nd Test Day 1 Updates – Australia Won The TOSS At Galle

SL vs AUS 2nd Test Day 1 Updates: Hello and Welcome to the live updates from Sri Lanka vs Australia 2nd Test at Galle. Australia outplayed Sri Lanka in the first game and picked up a comprehensive 10-wicket win to go 1-0 up in the series.  The wicket in Galle was a rank turner and to win on a surface like that was a massive plus for Australia.  However, even after comprehensively winning the first game, Australia cannot be complacent. Even they were not perfect in the first game. A couple of half-centuries from Usman Khawaja and Chris Green helped them take a healthy lead in the first inning. Had that not been the case, things could have been different.

Sri Lanka’s batting has been an issue in recent times. They place on fast wickets, they are rattled by the pacers, they play at home, they are blown away by the spinners. They need to fix their jigsaw in their batting and come out with better plans if they are to stop Australia from running away with the Test series.
