Sri Lanka in Australia T20I Series - 1st T20I

Australia v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 5 wickets (with 7 balls remaining)

Looks like a packed house. David Warner and Aaron Finch walk to the crease. Angelo Mathews has the ball. Here we go.

The national anthems are under way. Thankfully the game will go ahead despite the sprinklers having been turned on earlier in the week. Though some rain is forecast to be kicking around Sydney. Let's hope it stays away.

Sri Lanka also have the no. 1 ranking they earnt in the World Twenty20 on the line in this series. They need at least a 1-1 result to stay atop the table.

TJ disagrees: "@Tim, maybe because Laughlin is a death bowler where as Faulkner goes for over 8 an over and can barely get bat on ball without luck."

Tim has a bone to pick with the selectors: "Why Ben Laughlin? The guy is a 30 year old no name who's had one good Big Bash. Faulkner is a young player with tons of potential in all formats for Australia, he should be playing."

It's also a big day for Angelo Mathews, who has not yet convinced many that he is ready to be captain. You can read a little about that, here. This is his second match in charge after being given the Twenty20 captaincy.

While you wait for the action to begin, you can read Brydon Coverdale's preview here.

Sujan: "Seriously, no Dhananjaya in the team, i was looking forward to see him bowl." I was hoping he'd get a game too, but Mendis is the senior spinner in Twenty20s, so it's hard to see Dananjaya playing unless it's a turning pitch.

So a debutant each on both sides then, with Kushal Perera also playing his first Twenty20 international. He did look good in the glimpses we had of him in the ODIs, and he might even open today, if the scorecard order can be trusted.

Sri Lanka: 1 Kushal Perera, 2 Tillakaratne Dilshan, 3 Dinesh Chandimal, 4 Mahela Jayawardene, 5 Angelo Mathews (c), 6 Lahiru Thirimanne, 7 Jeevan Mendis, 8 Thisara Perera, 9 Nuwan Kulasekara, 10 Lasith Malinga, 11 Ajantha Mendis.

Australia: 1 David Warner, 2 Aaron Finch, 3 Shaun Marsh, 4 George Bailey (capt), 5 Adam Voges 6 Matthew Wade (wk), 7 Glenn Maxwell, 8 Ben Cutting, 9 Mitchell Starc, 10 Xavier Doherty, 11 Ben Laughlin.

Australia have won the toss and opted to bat at Stadium Australia. We're waiting on the team lists, but news is that Ben Cutting will get a Twenty20 debut.

Both countries are also enjoying public holidays today. It's Australia Day down under and a full moon Poya day in Sri Lanka. Shame they've both fallen on weekends.

The Twenty20s are Sri Lanka's last chance to leave Australia with some silverware of their own. They of course, lost the Test series 3-0 and shared the ODIs 2-2. We will have the toss and teams for you shortly.

Hello all, and welcome to our coverage of the first of two Twenty20s between Sri Lanka and Australia.

0.1

Mathews to Warner, no run, back of a length, outside off. Looks like there's some bounce here. Warner bunts that down the pitch

0.2

Mathews to Warner, 2 runs, missed run out! Back of a length again, but straighter. Warner pulls that into the legside and there's some hesitation as the batsmen go for two. Had Mathews collected the throw and broken the stumps, Finch would have been short.

0.3

Mathews to Warner, 1 leg bye, back of a length again, Warner misses with his pull and they scamper a leg bye

0.4

Mathews to Finch, 1 run, shortish again, short-arm pulled into the leg side into a gap on the infield

0.5

Mathews to Warner, 3 runs, wider this time and cut away behind point. Fielders reel it in though

0.6

Mathews to Finch, no run, angled across, play and miss on the drive

End of over 1 (7 runs) Australia 7/0 (RR: 7.00)
AJ Finch    1* (2b)      AD Mathews    1-0-6-0

Kulasekara to start from the other end

1.1

Kulasekara to Warner, no run, full, wide and angled across, Warner drives but the swing takes it away from the bat

1.2

Kulasekara to Warner, no run, full again, but tighter into the stumps. Warner defends into the off side

1.3

Kulasekara to Warner, no run, good length and straighter still. Warner is hit on the pads, but the ball was likely heading over the stumps. Might have pitched outside leg as well.

1.4

Kulasekara to Warner, 1 run, straight again, Warner gets bat on this one, hits to the legside, and the batsmen run one

1.5

Kulasekara to Finch, OUT, what a catch! Kulasekara's fine run continues. Finch moved across his stumps and tried to hit that through the leg side, but got a thick leading edge and Kushal Perera at short cover dived well in the air to his right to take a super catch.

2.4

Mathews to Warner, no run, Mathews goes even shorter this time and bowls a bouncer. Warner hooks but doesn't time it.

2.5

3.1

Malinga to Marsh, 1 leg bye, length ball on leg stump, Marsh knocks that into the leg side and the batsmen scamper through

SE Marsh    2* (5b)      AD Mathews    2-0-18-0

Kulasekara swaps ends.

Adrian Meredith: "Regardless of how well Aaron Finch does domestically, he has to be given the boot internationally after this effort. Maybe it is something mental or maybe it is more technique but he is consistently failing at the international stage. Maybe Pomersbach should have got a shot instead. Or David Hussey..."

4.1

Kulasekara to Marsh, 1 run, length ball on leg stump, hits Marsh on the pads and the batsmen take one. Might have got some bat on it

4.2

5.5

Third man comes into the circle

8.1

NLTC Perera to Bailey, 2 runs, almost another run out there! Bailey tried to pull that shortish delivery and only got an under edge. Thirimanne ran in from deep square leg, but his throw was off target, and Chandimal had too much to do. Another missed opportunity for Sri Lanka

10.4

Mathews to Warner, no run, length outside off stump, Warner goes for a big heave and misses

10.6

Mathews to Warner, FOUR, good thinking,. Mathews goes back of a length on off stump again, and Warner backs away and directs that past short fine leg for four

Arky: "I'm pretty sure Marsh getting out was a positive for Australia, not Sri Lanka. Wasting too many balls for a 20/20 innings. Marsh, like Finch, doesn't seem to be able to handle the step up, not anymore anyway."

14.3

Mathews to Warner, 1 wide, bowls that way down the leg side, Mathews is rattled

14.3

Mathews to Warner, 2 runs, backs away a tad and hits a length ball on leg stump towards long on, who has work to do. Good running gets two again.

14.4

Mathews to Warner, 1 run, dropped! How much will that cost Sri Lanka? That was slogged across the line straight to Kulasekara at deep midwicket, but he can't hold on.

14.5

Mathews to Voges, 1 run, fullish and on the stumps, Voges gets a thick inside edge to fine leg

14.6

Rajitha: "Couldn't fathom why Jeevan Mendis doesn't get a ball. He's a thinking leggie, bowled accurate. Sad we are not using him to the extent that he's

Malinga is back,

16.1

Malinga to Voges, 2 runs, slower ball again, that's seven in a row. Voges worked a length ball on the stumps behind square on the leg side, and a throw that deflects off the stumps allows a second

17.5

18.6

Malinga to Voges, 1 run, Voges goes across the stumps to try and throw Malinga's line off, but Malinga follows him and executes another perfect yorker. Dug out to the off side again. That's as good as death bowling gets really.

End of over 19 (6 runs) Australia 129/3 (RR: 6.78)
AC Voges    21* (26b)      SL Malinga    4-0-19-0

Kulasekara to bowl the last

19.1

Kulasekara to Voges, 1 run, he gets his yorker humming early. Full on the stumps, and turned to leg, where the square leg fielder collects

19.2

Kulasekara to Warner, 1 run, another yorker on the stumps, Warner just digs it out to cover again

19.3

Kulasekara to Voges, 2 runs, slightly overpitches that one, and an extra run is the result. Voges swings that behind square, and fine leg has to run around to cut it off

19.4

Kulasekara to Voges, 1 run, back on target with a yorker on leg stump, hits the boot, might have been some bat as well.

19.5

Kulasekara to Warner, 2 runs, Warner runs down the pitch to alter the length and gets under a full toss. Great fielding at long off from Thisara Perara saves the boundary though. He ran in, dived to his right and managed to stop a full-blooded drive.

19.6

Kulasekara to Warner, 1 run, down the track again, but the bowler is wise to it and adjusts his length to york Warner. That's hit to cover again, and it has been some very good bowling in the final two overs to keep Australia below 140.

Warner's has been a good innings, and it may turn out to be a match-winning one as the pitch is a little two-paced. But Sri Lanka's bowlers did very well to contain Australia, and they were backed up well in the field. We'll be here with the second innings in less than ten.

"We thought 130-140 would be a good total, and we've got there," says Warner as he walks off the pitch. "Hopefully our bowlers can bowl as well as they did."

End of over 20 (8 runs) Australia 137/3
