Australia and Sri Lanka will lock horns in a five-match T20I series, starting February 11, 2022. The matches will be held at Sydney Cricket Ground, Manuka Oval and Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Sri Lanka have announced a strong 20-member squad for this series. As many as nine new players have been added to the squad from the one that was part of the T20 World Cup 2021.

Kusal Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, and Akila Dananjaya have been axed.

Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Janith Liyanage, Kamil Mishara, Ramesh Mendis, Nuwan Thushara, Jeffrey Vandersay, Praveen Jayawickrama and Shiran Fernando have been included in the squad. Lasith Malinga has been appointed bowling strategy coach for this series.

Australia have many strong names in their squad as well. However, Mitchell Marsh and David Warner have been rested for the series, with Ben McDermott getting a call-up.

Daniel Sams has been the latest addition to the squad. Travis Head will miss the initial three T20Is due to his Sheffield Shield commitments but will be available for the final two T20is.
