Kardinia Park’s drop-in pitch has been friendly to batsmen in its few recent opportunities. The weather forecast for Geelong is not the most promising however, with showers expected in late afternoon and early evening. Sri Lanka may well keep an unchanged side to follow up their opening victory. Ben Dunk may be considered for inclusion after Australia played only three specialist batsmen in game one.
