Adelaide: Mar 6, 2012

Dominant Australia will aim to seal series win when they take on Sri Lanka in the second final of the CB Series at the Adelaide Oval on Tuesday.

Australia took a giant step towards winning Commonwealth Bank trophy when they defeated Sri Lanka by 15 runs in the high-scoring and thrilling first final of the tri-series at Brisbane yesterday.

And the hosts would be keen to keep the momentum going and wrap up the series tomorrow itself, but for that too happen the home team would want a more disciplined performance from its bowlers who cut a sorry figure yesterday against the Sri Lankan lower-middle order and tail-enders.

After posting 321 for six, largely built around David Warner’s career-best 163, the hosts got a scare with Nuwan Kulasekara (73) coming up with a blistering counter attacking innings and Sri Lankan tailenders producing some lusty hits before they fell short by 15 runs.
