Our prediction:

Our prediction is that Australia will win the match. Although Australia is not a good condition and for the first time in history they have been defeated in two matches in the World Cup. however, according to our sports experts, Australia has much more potential than the Lankan team. 

Final words:

After ages, the team Australia is in such a bad condition. The hot & humid weather of India can be a reason for this condition. However, we believe that the Ausi team has the potential to get back on track and manage a win.
