After a loss against India, Australia were back to their mighty best against Pakistan in their last game in the ongoing Cricket World Cup 2019. On a track where the ball had plenty of assistance for the seamers, the opening duo of David Warner and Aaron Finch came together to nullify the impact of Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz. 

That performance, then, will hold them in good stead as they take on Sri Lanka on Saturday. The Lankans have only four points in four games and have looked below par throughout, with their senior players failing to gel together and perform consistently. They do not have a threatening bowling attack, despite Lasith Malinga's presence, and the injury to Nuwan Pradeep has further put them under pressure. 

All in all, Australia are a much better side with better quality players and more experienced campaigners. Warner, Finch, Starc, Cummins, Finch and Khawaja have all come together to help the defending champions start the World Cup with a bang, and they are the firm favourites to win on Saturday as well.
