    David Warner was not in his element today as he has failed to gather that usual momentum of his. However, he has helped Finch put up some runs on board

    Sri Lanka were all out for 247 after the excellent start by Dimuth and Kusal Perera, but Australia's total of 334 was a bit too huge.

    OUT! There is the final wicket! Australia have finally managed to take it. Cummins is the man who finishes things off. Pradeep, like he has been doing, makes room again. Cummins bowls it full and follows him down the leg side. Nuwan looks to go downtown but the ball kisses the outside edge and goes into the gloves of the keeper. AUSTRALIA WIN BY 87 RUNS!

  • 44.4KRichardson to deSilva
