AUS vs SL 1st Test Day 1 Highlights – 24 January 2019
1st Test (D/N), Sri Lanka tour of Australia 2019, Watch SL v Aus Cricket highlights today – First test day one from Brisbane Cricket Ground, Woolloongabba, Brisbane (Australia) Thursday 24th January 2019. The Gabba pitch was green on the eve of the game, which suggests it will have its characteristic pace and bounce, with plenty of movement for the quicks. The weather is expected to remain good for the duration of the Test, with the temperature forecast to hover in the low 30-degrees range in the afternoons.
Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat.
Having opened with him in Hobart, Sri Lanka may put Lahiru Thirimanne at the top of the order alongside Karunaratne. They also have a decision to make as to which of their three young quicks plays. Most likely, Kumara and Chameera – both of whom can regularly breach the 140kph mark – will play, but Rajitha is also a decent chance if the team feels swing and seam will play a big role. Left armer Vishwa Fernando has joined the squad in place of the injured Nuwan Pradeep but is unlikely to play.
Perth might have the reputation of being the most fearsome pitch in the country, but it’s at the Gabba that visiting teams were generally given the rude welcome, a baptism of fire. It’s called the Gabbatoir with good reason. Even while Australian cricket has gone through a lull of late, Brisbane’s the only place where they haven’t quite lost the citadel completely. Their last loss came here way back in 1988 to the mighty West Indies. They have won 22 out of the 27 Tests since, with only five draws – most of them impacted by inclement weather.
