Sri Lanka Vs Australia T20 Highlights

Sri Lanka takes on Australia today on second match T20 Cricket Series in three days at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Sri Lanka 11:30pm AEST Mon, 8th August.

Sri Lanka won a convincing 35 runs on the first match Saturday with superb bowling from Tillakaratne Dilshan as the man of the match.

Sri Lanka choose to bat first, reached 198 for three and put a plug on the Australian batting through their spinners to restrict them to 163 for eight wickets. Funked with poor batting, the Aussies has found only Warner who managed 53 off 31 balls for Australia.

The home crowd were applauding Dilshan's century, who ends on 104 not out, made in just 57 deliveries. Only 3 Aussie bowlers took wickets, one apiece for Lee, Johnson and Watson.

Australian captain Cameron White said: "We were in the game for 12-14 overs but Dilshan took the game away from us. Full credit to Sri Lanka and Dilshan.

Sri Lanka reach their highest total in T20Is against Australia and they are hoping to do the same today with the same crowd.

But skipper Cameron White admits Australia's performance against Sri Lanka was not up to scratch, but he believes his side can bounce back today.
