Featured Padding Up Sri Lanka tour of Australia 2022

Australia beat Sri Lanka to take unassailable 3-nil lead

Sri Lanka’s batsmen failed to deliver as Australia romped to a 6-wicket win and their third straight success to already clinch the 5-match T20 series yesterday at Canberra. Except for skipper Dasun Shanaka’s run a ball top score of 39 with 5 boundaries and Dinesh Chandimal’s 25 off 29 with a solitary boumdary, the frontline batting came a cropper against Australia’s tight bowling attack. Pathum Nissanka, who had been the side’s mainstay in the two previous games, fell for 16. Opening batsman Danushka Gunathilaka continued his poor form while Kusal Mendis, playing his first game following the pandemic sidelining, also failed. As it was, by the time Shanaka came in the damage had been inflicted with left arm medium pacie Kane Richardson claiming 3 for 21 to pocket the Player of the Match award.
