Watch SL v AUS highlights today – third t20 from Adelaide Oval (Australia) Wednesday 22nd February 2017. Back to back victories in t20 format making new Sri Lankan international team stronger and dangerous. Because they won the t20 series from SA which is no 1 ODI team and now they won three t20 series from Australia from their home. The first two 20/20 matches Sri Lanka won at last ball in both matches.
From Sri Lanka, DAS Gunaratne (Downdegedara Asela Sampath Gunaratne) is the most destructive batsmen for Australians because he scored 136 runs off 83 balls in the last two matches, and his highest is 84 not out. Another side M Klinger is trying his best, he scored 81 runs off 69 balls. MC Henriques 73, AJ Finch 55. Which means After DAS Gunaratne three Australian batsmen are listed in most runs scorer stats of the tour.
Now today’s match will be the most important match for both teams especially for Australia because they already lost two t20’s at home and another side Sri Lanka’s youngster’s hunger has not finished yet. SL Malinga is the most wicket-taker with a good economy so far, he dismissed four Australian wickets in last two matches. KMDN Kulasekara took also four, AJ Turner 3 and JRMVB Sanjaya three.
