With rain stealing most of the limelight in the ongoing Cricket World Cup 2019, the weather becomes an integral part of this world cup. Next few days are going to be critical in terms of both - weather and the matches which are going to be played. We have Sri Lanka taking on the defending champions, Australia, on Saturday with the marquee contest between India and Pakistan to take place on the next day. The match between Australia and Sri Lanka is scheduled to begin at 9:30 am local time on 15th June at The Oval, London provided the weather doesn't play spoilsport. Going by the current forecast, we should get a full game in on Saturday. When the two teams met in the warm-up fixture, the Aussies won the match quite comfortably. Stakes, however, are going to be higher this time and we expect a lot closer contest.
There's hardly anything which has gone right in Sri Lankan cricket in recent times. They've lost more often than not since the beginning of last year, and there doesn't seem to be light at the end of their tunnel. However, they'd be relatively happy by the position they're currently in at the ladder in the ongoing Cricket World Cup.
They are currently at the fifth spot with four of their matches already done and dusted and credits to two washouts, they're higher than they were expected to be. Their next four opponents, after Australia, are pretty hard and they need to win at least three of those to have any chances of qualification whatsoever.
So far in the tournament, Sri Lanka have been part of only one completed fixture wherein they did pretty well. Their top-three were brilliant with the bat, but they found themselves struggling at 180-odd total with seven wickets down. Their bowling, however, did exceedingly well in wrapping Afghanistan well before knocking their total down.
All in all, considering that Sri Lanka were far from favorites in their last two matches, the washouts might have done more good than harm to the Sri Lankans. While they now need to win most of their games, they are coming after having a good break which could be a blessing in such a big tournament.

It won't be wrong to say that the Aussies have been on a roller-coaster ride considering the way they've performed in the tournament. Not only their results speak of that, but their performance in the last match was also one good example of that.
They bounced back to winning ways and therefore to contention with a crucial win over Pakistan. While it was a victory with a pretty decent margin on paper, the match was a lot closer than the scorecard suggests.
Batting first on a beauty of a wicket, Finch and Warner got them off to a flyer with Finch leading the way with his potent 82-run knock. Warner continued to build on the solid start and scored a match-winning hundred. Their innings, however, stumbled towards the end of their innings and they were eventually folded for 307.
Defending 307 on a surface which was excellent for batting would have needed a perfect plan, and the Kangaroos executed their plan to perfection. Starc and Cummins were terrific upfront and while a couple of their bowlers leaked runs in the middle overs with Hafeez taking Maxwell for cleaners.
All in all, apart from their game against India, Australia have looked like a team to beat in this tournament. They have done well in all three departments of the game and are looking hungry for more wins and consequently yet another title win.
Aaron Finch, David Warner, Steven Smith, Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, KW Richardson, Jason Behrendorff.

It turned out to be a mismatch when these two teams met each other in the warm-up fixture around three weeks ago. While Australia are coming off a massive win in their previous match, Sri Lanka have had sufficient rest due to the virtue to two abandoned matches. They are in dire need of a win and a couple of points which might motivate them to put in the extra effort. Having said that, Australia are a superior team on paper, and with both batting and bowling firing, they are firm favorites to register a win in this upcoming fixture.
