Glen Maxwell joins the party
Australia's skipper Aaron Finch stitched a solid opening partnership with David Warner before he was dismissed for 64 runs. Glen Maxwell took over from Aaron Finch and raced away to his fifty off just 22 balls. Glen Maxwell smashed consecutive sixes en route to his fifty and played the helicopter shot to get to his half-century. Sri Lanka's Kasutha Ranjitha became the most expensive bowler in T20I after he conceded 75 runs in his four overs.
Australia win the first T20

Chasing a mammoth target of 234 runs, Sri Lanka's batting order collapsed to the pressure of the Australian bowlers, with spinner Adam Zampa picking up three scalps while pacers Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins picked up two wickets each. Sri Lanka's highest run-scorer in the match was Dasun Shanaka, who scored 17 runs, followed by skipper Lasith Malinga and Kusal Perera.
