Australia tour of Sri Lanka 3rd T20 Overview
Sri Lanka Reviews
Asalanka was the highest run-scorer in the first match with 39 runs to his name on 33 balls with the help of two boundaries and the same huge sixes. Kusal Mendis was the other batter who put some runs on the board. C Karunaratne and Chameera failed to open the account on the scoreboard. The batting order of Sri Lanka had provided nothing to defend to the bowling department even though they were good in the previous match and gave a tough time to the batters of Australia. Maheesh Theekshana, Danushka Gunathilaka, Dushmantha Chameera, Wanindu Hasaranga, Nuwan Thushara, and Charith Asalanka are taking care of the bowling department of Sri Lanka. Wanindu Hasaranga was the most successful bowler in the previous match with four wickets to his name in four overs against 33 runs. Nuwan Thushara and Dushmantha Chameera picked one wicket each while Maheesh Theekshana, Charith Asalanka, and Danushka Gunathilaka were the bowlers who could not manage to pick any wicket.
The batting department of Australia is strong and experienced and they were just superb in the first match but they faced some issues to chase a low target on the board in the previous match. They chased the target of 125 runs in 17.5 overs with just three wickets in hand. Aaron Finch, David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, and Matthew Wade are the leading batters of Australia but they were not good in the previous match. Matthew Wade was the most successful batter in the previous match who remained not out after scoring 26 runs with the help of two boundaries. Aaron Finch scored 24 runs while David Warner had 21 runs to his name on just 10 balls with the help of three boundaries and one huge six.
