Glenn Maxwell (31 not out) and Marcus Stoinis (20 not out) sealed the deal with some aggressive batting.

Sri Lankan bowlers struggled to make an impact, with Dilshan Madushanka being the pick of the bowlers, taking 3 crucial wickets. Lahiru Kumara, Maheesh Theekshana, Dunith Wellalage, and Chamika Karunaratne were unable to break through the Australian batting lineup effectively.
