Lynn, Finch to miss Sri Lanka T20 series

Fast bowler Mitchell Starc took three wickets while spinners Travis Head and Adam Zampa took two each to help Australia bowl Sri Lanka out for 195 runs with more than nine overs remaining in the fifth and final one-day worldwide on Sunday.

Sri Lanka (possible): 1.

It's Australian cricket's great sub-continental conundrum: how can a team so dominant in one-dayers in Asia be so poor in Tests?

"It was nearly going back to the Test matches and trying to grind but still try to rotate the strike", Warner said. "We are playing a few more quicks than what they (Sri Lanka) are, but with variable bounce and reverse swing, we've countered their spinners", ESPN Cricinfo quoted Wade as saying.

"He is not expected to be available for the remainder of the Australian series", SLC said in a statement. That was the game plan we had to try and manufacture [shots]. We didn't adapt fast enough. The home side has also rested a couple of players in order to bring in some fresh legs.

"It wasn't the ideal start with the ball, it was a challenge to face that new ball".

"I think that's where we lacked a little bit (in the Test matches against Sri Lanka)". In the one-day game you get some release because you can't have those catchers around the bat.

The Australia has the winning streak with them and they would love to continue it by winning this match. "That's how you're going to have to score in these conditions", he insisted.

But Warner and Bailey weathered the hard period, taking time to adjust to the pitch before opening up to score runs.

A comparison with the equivalent individual performances in the ODI game throughout that window further highlights the discrepancies.

A major difference for the ODIs was the addition of George Bailey, who adapted his game for the sub-continent and staked a strong claim to a Test recall for the tour to India in February.

Hello and Welcome to CricketCountry's coverage of the first T20 global (T20I) between Sri Lanka and Australia at Pallekele. On one hand, the t20 series isn't of very much worth, but on the other hand, it will be important for Sri Lankans.

Maxwell struck 14 fours and nine sixes during his 65-ball stay to help Australia break a nine-year record held by Sri Lanka, who scored 260/6 against Kenya in 2007.

"They don't care if it's 110 against 109".

Sri Lanka have a tough task ahead of them.

With replays suggesting that there was a top edge, Warner also admitted that he nicked that delivery but added that he was fortunate to get some luck going his way.
