Match Ended   
149/9 (20.0/20)
122/8 (19.0/19)
Australia beat Sri Lanka by 20 runs (D/L method)
Right then. That is all we have from this game. The series is off to a good start for the Aussies and would want to win the next game too. But expect Sri Lanka to do better in the next game as they get used to the conditions. The second T20I will be played on 13th February. The first ball will be bowled at 1:40 pm IST (8:10 am GMT). But join us in advance for the buildup. Cheers for now!
Adam Zampa has been named the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his spell of 4-0-18-3!
The Aussie bowling was on point and they had a great time. Josh Hazlewood had an excellent return as he bagged a four-fer. Adam Zampa like always was amongst the wickets and picked up 3. Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins were a bit expensive but the others covered well for them. Their batting was quite average as they lost a bunch of wickets in the death overs but they did get a decent score on the board.
The Powerplay was going to be key for Sri Lanka but they failed to make use of it. They lost the two wickets and also did not score freely. Then there was a stand between Pathum Nissanka and Charith Asalanka which did steady the ship but they needed to up the ante once they were set. Both the batters fell to Adam Zampa in the 11th over and after that, it was a collapse. There were a few starts for their batters but none went onto make it big and that is what cost them the game.
A very convincing win for the Aussies and once again their strong bowling unit has come to the rescue. We felt they had an under-par score to defend but they have used the conditions brilliantly and defended well.

A bit of drizzle around. Very, very light though. Also, Australia are a bit behind on time. The rule apparently is that if you don't bowl the overs in a stipulated time, you need to have fewer fielders outside the ring towards the end. Australia are one over behind currently.

Appeal for caught behind! A bumper, on middle. Pathum Nissanka goes for the pull but misses. The Aussies are quite interested but Starc is not really appealing. Finch is really excited but the umpire turns it down. There is a spike on UltraEdge but it might have been the ball clipping the helmet.
