2nd ODI: AUS-W vs SL-W Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing XI, Pitch Report, Team And Preview


The trend continues in the ODI series as well with the Australian Women pummelling the Sri Lankans in the first match courtesy of fifties from Mooney, Haynes and captain, Meg Lanning. The second ODI is set to take place at the very same venue i.e. Allan Border Field in Brisbane on Monday. While the Aussies are expected to make short work of the tourists, the Sri Lankans will look to give Meg Lanning and co a tougher fight than they did a couple of days ago. All eyes will be on Alyssa Healy and Chamari Athapaththu, who are in very good knick and have already made a mark in the series with superlative knocks in the T20I format.

Match Details

Australia Women vs Sri Lanka Women

2nd ODI

Allan Border Field, Brisbane

5:40 AM IST

October 7th, 2019

Weather Report: 

Sunny weather with the temperature ranging around 16 degrees Celsius and no chances of rain is expected during the course of the encounter.

Pitch Report:

Another high-scoring game is expected with lots of runs and some turn on offer. While Sri Lanka did struggle against medium pace and spin in the previous game, 250 still should be a good score on this surface. Teams should prefer chasing on this surface upon winning the toss.

Predicted Playing XI: 

Australia Women

Australia shouldn’t be making any changes with a series win on the horizon. Alyssa Healy failed in the first ODI yet the Aussies were able to post 281. Rachael Haynes, who had a tough West Indies tour, has regained her form and looks to be in great touch. Their bowling unit has consistently provided the goods with Georgia Wareham in scintillating form with the ball in hand.
Alyssa Healy, Rachael Haynes, Meg Lanning, Ellyse Perry, Ashleigh Gardener, Beth Mooney, Jess Jonassen, Nicola Carey, Megan Schutt, Tayla Vlaeminck and Georgia Wareham.

Sri Lanka Women

As for the Sri Lankans, they haven’t able to pick wickets and trouble the Aussies so far on the tour. Apart from Udeshika Prabodhani and Ranasinghe, none of the bowlers have really hit the right lengths and caused any trouble to the Aussies. Much is expected from the duo of Sashikala Siriwardene and Chamari Athapaththu, who has ample experience playing in Australia in the Women’s Big Bash League over the years. Harshitha Madavi is slowly getting into her groove and is one to watch out for.
Chamari Athapaththu, Anushka Sanjeewani, Harshitha Madavi, Hansima Karunaratne, D Manodara, Sashikala Siriwardene, Nilakshi de Silva, Oshadi Ranasinghe, Udeshika Prabodhani, Achini Kulasuriya and Inoka Ranaweera.

Top Picks: 

Alyssa Healy smashed a record breaking hundred in the third T20 but couldn’t follow it up on Saturday. She should score some runs at the top of the order along with Rachael Haynes and Meg Lanning. Harshitha Madavi was Sri Lanka’s best batter in the previous game and she is ideally picked alongside Sashikala Siriwardene and Chamari Athapaththu for this game. Jess Jonassen and Tayla Vlaeminck picked four wickets among themselves and should continue their good form on Monday while Megan Schutt is expected to make amends for a no show in the previous game against the hapless Sri Lankans.

1: Megan Schutt
