Sri Lanka innings:
Not a single Sri Lankan batsman scored a half-century in the first innings. Kushal Mendis top-scored with 36 (41). Next Tananjaya de Silva and Shanaka both scored 34 runs each. None of the others scored 20+ runs.
When Sri Lanka scored 220/9 in 47.4 overs, the rain interrupted. The third umpire also announced that the Sri Lankan innings was over.
Pat Cummins took 4/35 wickets to put Sri Lanka in crisis.
Chasing the target, Australia set a target of 216 for victory in 43 overs. Since this was a simple goal, it was assumed that the Australian team would win.
However, the Australian team, like Sri Lanka, displayed a stumbling block. Opener David Warner top-scored with 37 (51) and Maxwell added 30 off 25 balls.
Steven Smith 28 (35) and Travis Head 23 (34) added some runs. Pinch 14 (15), Lapushen 18 (30) and Alex Harry 15 (20) did not make a big impact. Thus, the Australian team lost by 26 runs, adding only 189/10 at the end of 37.1 overs.
Karunaratne took 3/47 wickets. Sameera, Tananjaya and Vellalake took two wickets each.
Both teams are currently tied at 1-1. The third ODI will be played on the 19th.
