Commentary

Sri Lanka won by 5 wkts | Australia Vs Sri Lanka Live Score, 1st T20I

That is all from us here. Join us for more cricketing action in the coming days. Bye Bye!
David Warner is the MoM for his unbeaten 90 off 62 balls. This is his highest score in T20Is.
Kushal Perera and Dilshan started the chase off well but they stuttered when the spinners came on to bowl. Doherty and Maxwell stifled the scoring rate as they picked up wickets at regular intervals. However, Mathews steadied the ship and Thisara Perera supported him well. Thisara finished off the game with a couple of sixes to help Sri Lanka go 1-0 up in the two match series. This will not be a happy Australia day for the home team.
