From 100/1, Sri Lanka have crashed spectacularly to be bowled out for 128. Things turned around dramatically in the 14th over with Josh Hazlewood, whose bowling stocks in the shortest format keep on rising, striking thrice. It was a wonderful outing for him as he finished with figures of 4/16, triggering the collapse from which Sri Lanka couldn’t recover. Mitchell Starc was his usual self at the death to wrap things up as Sri Lanka huffed and puffed to an exigent total which shouldn’t trouble Australia too much in the series opener at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.
Josh Hazlewood is on 🔥
What a comeback from Australia!
