It increases the onus on Starc to give Australia an early breakthrough, something hell try by getting the ball to swing in massively into Karunaratne. With the Kennington Oval traditionally know to serve up pristine batting surfaces, this is a track Karunaratnewhile like batting on. An area where Karunaratne suffers is the ball which moves in the air and comes into him after pitching with his willingness to play on the back foot leaving him cramped for room at times.

Has Australian cricket turned a corner or is it just a false dawn against an underwhelming Sri Lanka side? Does Sri Lanka have the resources to be able to win their first ever test match in Australia? The second test between Australia and Sri Lanka is going to be played at Canberra on one of the flattest pitches in the country. Batsmen on both sides should be able to take advantage of the batting conditions and score some big runs.

They are in dire need of a win and a couple of points which might motivate them to put in the extra effort.

Nathan Coulter-Nile has not looked at his best and he will be eyeing this game as an opportunity to return to form.
