Sri Lanka vs Australia

Australia somehow faced the challenge of Wanindu Hasaranga and beat Sri Lanka by 3 wickets in the 2nd T20I. Veteran wicket-keeper Matthew Wade (26*) handled the heavy batting pressure with Jhye Richardson to seal the win with 13 balls to spare in Colombo on Wednesday night. Ultimately, Wade hit some boundaries and Australia took an unassailable lead of 2-0.

Chasing the total target of 9-124 runs, openers Aaron Finch and David Warner wanted Australia to win as soon as possible. Only a night earlier, the same pair led Australia to a 10-wicket victory when they crossed Sri Lanka’s 128-run mark with six overs to spare.

But the story of the second match was different. In this match Hasranga was spreading his magic. His bowling brought Australia to a 7-99 collapse. The leg-spinner bowled brilliantly with figures of 4-33 and took the wickets of Glenn Maxwell and Ashton Agar in successive deliveries which could have been the turning point of the match.

But Wade was able to stabilize the innings as he found solid support from pacer Jhye Richardson and helped Australia take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. Star pacer Mitchell Starc was unavailable for Wednesday’s match after a finger injury, Maxwell was given the new ball and he bowled well.

Charith Asalanka (39) and Kusal Mendis (36) took the innings forward with a 66-run partnership. But Maxwell trapped Aslanka in the 12th over and sent her towards the pavilion. After falling back into his stumps after being hit in the helmet by a ball from Jhye Richardson, Mendis’s wicket came as a hit wicket.

The Western Australian pacer, who has played just two internationals since being dropped after taking a five-wicket haul in the second Ashes Test win last December, replaced Starc. Richardson finished with career-best T20I figures of 3-26, while Josh Hazlewood (0-16) was dismissed by Sri Lanka’s batsmen for extreme caution after his player-of-the-match performance of 4-16 in game one. dealt with.

Kane Richardson also had a career-best night with the ball, finishing with figures of 4-30 after taking three wickets in the final over to rein in Sri Lanka’s innings. Now, the final match of the series will be a dead rubber but Sri Lanka will try their best to not get white washed.
