Right then, that is all we have from this game. The first match of the ODI series had it all, heavy hitting, sensational pieces of bowling, rain and Australia did manage to chase down their highest score against Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka as well. The next game of the series will be played on Thursday, the 16th of June at 2.30 pm IST (9 am GMT) but our build-up as usual will begin much sooner. Till then, take care and goodbye!
Aaron Finch, captain of Australia says it was a very good game of cricket, and Maxwell's innings was filled with class and maturity. Adds that they were always one more wicket down than they would have liked but Maxwell played brilliantly and it would have been better to have those wickets in hand at the death but it's fine. Says that they could be better with the ball in the death overs and will look to improve in the next game.
Sri Lanka skipper, Dasun Shanaka says that both sides played really well and their bowling went a bit wrong in the game and that cost them. Adds that the opposition had experienced batters and that mattered. Says that 300 on the board is also a good total but the bowling let them down. On Wanindu Hasaranga, he says that it doesn't seem bad but they will have to wait and see. On Dunith Wellalage, he says that he has watched him for a long time now and reckons he has a very bright future ahead.
Glenn Maxwell (80* off 51 balls) is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH for his match-winning innings. Maxwell says that he is very pleased with the win because the wickets were tumbling. He adds that he tried to stick around till the end but thought it was the right option to take on the debutant and that released the pressure a bit. One being asked about the reverse sweep, he says that it is a shot he is familiar with and he has worked on it, so it's not fluke but more skill.
The presentation ceremony...
Earlier in the game, Dasun Shanaka opted to bat and on the back of a stellar opening stand of 115-runs and some breath-taking batting by Kusal Mendis and especially Wanindu Hasaranga at the death, Sri Lanka posted 300 runs on the board. They hadn't lost to Australia on home soil if they got to 270 runs or more and would have been pleased at the interval. Ashton Agar was impressive with the ball and Marnus Labuschagne did get a couple of wickets as well but the pacers were a bit disappointing. Rain played a bit of spoilsport when Australia were 72/2 in 12.4 overs, after which the target was revised to 282 runs off 44 overs and action on the field got even more interesting. After a few good knocks from Aaron Finch, Steven Smith and Marcus Stoinis, the visitors still needed a big innings from somewhre. Cue in the 'Big Show' and it was Glenn Maxwell's effort that got his side the victory.
The hosts had the runs on the board and with Maheesh Theekshana dismissing Warner in the very first over, they couldn't just press the issue inside the Powerplay. The bowling overall was erratic with no one really bowling well throughout the match. It was the wickets that Lankan bowlers took that gave them the chance and the pick of the bunch certainly was Wanindu Hasaranga who played through a hamstring issue and did put on quite a show. The other two spinners were expensive, debutant Dunith Wellalage did get a couple of crucial wickets but he will be looking to improve a bit more. A game the hosts will feel they should have but they are behind in the series and will look to pull up their socks in the next game.
Chasing a stiff target of 301, Australia didn't have the best of starts as David Warner fell in the very first over but then came the 67-run stand between skipper Aaron Finch and Steven Smith. Finch did get out but Smith carried on his merry way before rain played spoilsport. After a long break, Smith came back and scored a well-composed half-century. Marcus Stoinis too played a good cameo but the Aussies kept on losing wickets at crucial stages of the game. It was certainly the innings from Glenn Maxwell (80* off 51 balls) that almost single-handedly took them over the line and has now put them in front early in the series.
What a brilliant game of cricket we have witnessed! The hosts gave it their all but Glenn Maxwell just absorbed all the pressure and has taken his side to victory. A closely-fought match goes in the favour of the visitors and they lead the five-match ODI series 1-0.

A dot to end then! 12 needed in 12. On off, tossed up, this is pushed to cover. Australia's game now. Only chance Sri Lanka have is if they get Maxwell in the next three balls.

Dushmantha Chameera To Glenn Maxwell
Full and on the pads, Glenn Maxwell flicks it in front of square on the leg side. Chamika Karunaratne attacks it but his left knee gets stuck in the surface and Maxwell is able to come back for the second. Karunaratne seems to be in pain but he just shrugs it off.

Dunith Wellalage To Ashton Agar OUT!
OUT! LBW! Ashton Agar is left dumfounded as he has to walk back and the debutant gets yet another crucial wicket. Dunith Wellalage comes from over the wicket and delivers it on a length, around off. The ball turns back in a long way and Agar is caught on the crease. Agar gets pinged in front and after a huge appeal, the umpire raises his finger. Australia have run out of reviews and there's nothing Agar can do. The replay shows that the ball would have gone on to crash into leg stump, good decision by the umpire.
