Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne won the toss and elected to field first against Australia in the 20th match of ICC Cricket World Cup at The Oval, London on Saturday.
The match starts at 3:30pm (Bangladesh time).
Big-hitting Marcus Stoinis was kept aside from Australia XI as he is still nursing a thigh strain while the Lions
included Siriwardene who will play instead of Lakmal.
The Aussie have included left-arm pacer Jason Behrendorff in XI in place of Nathan Coulter-Nile who sits out with a stiff back.
After 2 of their matches were abandoned due to rain, Sri Lanka will try to get their World Cup 2019 campaign back on track.
