Josh Inglis was the top scorer for the hosts with 48, with the Lankan bowlers bowling brilliantly throughout their innings.

  • However, Sri Lankan batters failed to adapt to the conditions. Only Pathum Nissanka, who scored 73 runs, performed with the bat to help his side get closer to the target.
  • They kept losing wickets but eventually, Dushmantha Chameera hit a boundary off the last ball of the game to force the Super Over. Josh Hazlewood bowled the super over. he conceded only five runs.
  • Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell ensured the Aussies chased down the total on the third ball to seal the game. The hosts managed to sneak past the finish line to lead the series by a 2-0 margin.

Now the 3rd T2o will be played at Manuka Oval in Canberra on 15th February.

It will be interesting to see who will win the game. If Australia wins the game then the series will be sealed by them. So it is a do-or-die match for Sri Lanka.
