Australia have dominated the head-to-head ledger over 2014 world champions Sri Lanka over the course of the last eight editions of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

The maiden meeting between these two sides took place during the inaugural edition of the World Cup in 2007, where the Aussies crushed the Lankans by ten wickets.

Two years later, the Asian Lions fought back with venom as they knocked the Aussies out of the 2009 T20 World Cup by inflicting a six-wicket defeat over Ricky Ponting’s men in Nottingham.

A year later, Australia, the eventual runners-up of the 2010 edition held in the Caribbean, crushed Sri Lanka again by 81 runs, thanks to an unbeaten 49-ball 85* by Cameron White and a three-wicket-haul by Mitchell Johnson.

Since then, these two sides have met just once at the T20 World Cup stage. That meeting took place in the previous edition held in Australia, where Marcus Stoinis-inspired defending world champions defeated the Lankan Lions by seven wickets.
