Sri Lanka look to be in trouble as a lot of the core team members are set to miss the tour due to their injuries. Australia will play with the full strength team led by skipper Steven Smith. Australia's tour involves three Tests, five One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and two Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) and this match being the first one will be crucial for both the teams. <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/cricket-scores/Warne-Muralitharan-Trophy-2016/1st-Test-match/Sri-Lanka-Vs-Australia/summary/181111" target="_blank"><strong>Full Cricket Scorecard, Sri Lanka vs Australia 2016, 1st Test at Pallekele</strong></a> <p></p> <p></p>Australia, currently the top-ranked Test team in the world, are sure to prove their mettle and maintain their reputation. Nathan Lyon, who had made his Test debut in Sri Lanka in 2011 with 6 wickets in the first match will be interesting to see. Other positives for the team is the return of lethal Mitchell Starc to the side. In form David Warner has also been declared fit to play and with all these players present, Australia will be one confident team this series. <strong><a title="SL vs AUS 2016 Live Cricket Score, 1st Test at Pallekele, Day 1" href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/live/live-blog/sri-lanka-sl-vs-australia-aus-2016-live-cricket-score-1st-test-at-pallekele-day-1-get-updates-on-live-score-and-ball-by-ball-commentary-for-australias-tour-of-sri-lanka-476067">SL vs AUS 2016 Live Cricket Score, 1st Test at Pallekele, Day 1</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>Sri Lanka, on the other hand, have a completely different scenario. Two of team's most experienced players Lahiru Thirimanne and Dushmantha Chameera are out of the squad due to injuries and Shaminda Eranga's action has been reported. With the fewer options left in hand, skipper Angelo Mathews will find it much difficult to choose his eleven to face the powerful Australia side.
