The pitch will be a batting-friendly surface with a little help for the pace bowlers who like to hit the deck. The surface at Canberra has an equal amount of assistance for both batter and bowlers. Pacers can be effective with the new ball while spinners can provide breakthroughs in the middle overs.

AUS vs SL Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction
Australia is expected to win against Sri Lanka.
The defending T20 World Champions, Australia is already a stronger side than Sri Lanka, at least when the batting is concerned. They are an immaculately balanced team that has all their bases covered, be it batting or bowling. Headlining their batting departments are David Warner, Josh Inglis, Aaron Finch, Ben McDermott, and Marcus Stoinis who are crucial players of the shorter format.
On the other hand, this is will be a high-pressure game for Sri Lanka to save themselves from losing the series. They will make an effort to put their best foot forward to get back on the winning track. Their poor performance with the bat has proved to be the turning point in the past matches for them.
Popular Betting Odds For AUS vs SL, 3rd T20I Today Match Prediction, Cricket Betting Tips
Top Batsman for Australia-Aaron Finch (4.33)
Aaron Finch was in solid form with the bat in his BBL campaign for the Melbourne Renegades. His recent form in the past 5 matches is 25, 8, 82, 75, 45. Even though he amassed 25 off 20 in the last match against Sri Lanka, he is an avid batter of the top order and is expected to play a captain’s knock in this contest, probably returning to his natural form. So far in 9 matches, he has amassed 168 runs with a strike rate of 113.51.
Top Batsman for Sri Lanka- Charith Asalanka (4.50)
Even though he was dismissed at a duck in the last match, the 24-year-old is an exceptional batter when it comes to the shorter format. In 11 T20Is he has amassed 311 runs with a strike rate of 126.42. Ahead of this T20 series, he has hammered two back-to-back half-centuries in the past two matches. Hopefully expected, Asalanka will make a comeback in this contest.
Top Bowlers for Australia- Josh Hazlewood (3.25)
Hazlewood is a must-pick as an Aussie bowler as he is currently leading the bowling attack for them. He is a skillful fast bowler who can get the ball to move around and has bagged 7 wickets in just 2 matches. Hazlewood is also a handy lower-order batsman and can save some boundaries as well with his athleticism. He has a wide range of deliveries in his arsenal which could trouble the Sri Lankan batters.
Top Bowler for Sri Lanka- Wanindu Hasaranga (3.00)
Wanindu Hasaranga helped Srilanka to strike a comeback in middle overs against Australia batters. His unpredictability is a massive threat for Aussie batters. He took wickets of Aaron Finch and Josh Inglis, who were looking really comfortable on this pitch. Wanindu Hasaranga has created many problems for the Australian team on this tour and will be the biggest threat in the 3rd T20I. So far he has bagged five wickets in 2 T20s with an economy of 8.87.
