So, that is it from this game! Australia now have two in two whereas Sri Lanka, lose their first game in the World Cup. Two games coming your way on Friday. It is Bangladesh taking on West Indies first and then Pakistan locking horns with Afghanistan. The action begins at 1400 local (1000 GMT).
Aaron Finch, the skipper of Australia, says that it was a good performance but Zampa and Starc did well earlier to track them back. Says that the wicket was good and they needed to be calm and stick to the plans. Adds that Sri Lanka can take the game away from you but they did well today. Tells that Warner played well today and Zampa made his impact. Tells they are looking forward to the England game.
Dasun Shanaka, the skipper of Sri Lanka, says that the wicket was too good and they did get off to a great start but failed to capitalize on it. Adds that the batter who is set needs to continue on till the 15th-16th over and it is a concern for them. Tells that David Warner and Aaron Finch are good batters and they were not able to contain them. Says that they will try to rectify the same in the next game.
Adam Zampa is the Player of the Match. He says that Sri Lanka got off to a flier but they came back well. Adds that the wicket was a bit slow but the dew helped them in the second innings. Tells that he loves bowling against Sri Lanka as they are good against spin. Says that he likes to play at the back end as well. Credits David Warner by saying that he played really well as he was under pressure.
... Time for the Presentation ...
Earlier in the day, after electing to bowl, the Aussie bowlers took a pounding at the start but then were excellent during the middle overs and death. What seemed like 170 at one moment ended at 154 which was chased easily in the end by the Aussies.
Sri Lanka were quite poor with the ball! They were either very full or too short. Also, the introduction of Hasaranga, who was easily the pick, was quite late. They could have got him when the bowlers were taking a beating. However, the Lankans were actually 20 runs short of what they needed to be competitive.
Quite an easy win for the Aussies and they make it two in a row. Also, that ends the winning streak of Lanka in this World Cup. We did feel the Lankans got to a fighting score but their bowlers showed no fight. Finch and Warner really took the attack to them and in no time added 70 before Finch fell. Maxwell did not last for long but Warner and Smith with another good stand took the Aussies to the brink of victory. Warner was the mainstay. Once he fell though, Stoinis and Smith made quick work of the runs which remained.
