Australia decimated Sri Lanka by an innings and 40 runs in the first test at the Gabba to draw first blood in the two-game series.

Live telecast is scheduled to begin at 10:30 AM local time each day of the match.
Australia vs Sri Lanka Betting Odds & prediction
Australia starts off as overwhelming favorites amongst the bookmakers to win the second test. The hosts are being offered at extremely short odds of 1.13 on Betway, 1.16 on Bet365 and 1.19 on Betfair. Sri Lanka is huge underdogs for this game at a much higher price of 10, 9 and 11 with the respective bookmakers. The odds for this match to end in a draw stand at 12.50 on Betfair and 11 on both Betway and Bet365.
Although some rain has been forecast for days three and five of the second test, there should still be enough time for a result. And considering how the first match got wrapped up inside three days, a draw seems to be the least likely outcome here. Australia, after that emphatic innings victory at Brisbane, will be going into this game riding high on confidence as opposed to Sri Lanka who are under pressure to avoid a series whitewash.
The visitors struggled big time with the bat last time and it is unlikely that their batting will undergo drastic improvements in such a short period of time. Also, Sri Lanka’s bowling will suffer in the absence of Lahiru Kumara and Dushmantha Chameera who have been ruled out of this match due to injuries. Australia seems too hot for Sri Lanka in these conditions and we expect the hosts to finish on a high.
Final Verdict: Back Australia to beat Sri Lanka in the second test at 1.13 with Betway, 1.16 with Bet365 and 1.19 with Betfair.
