Runs are coming thick and fast in Abu Dhabi, with Australia's 50 up in only 4.2 overs as they set about chasing Sri Lanka's 154/6. A golden opportunity to dent the opposition early tumbled into Lanka's basket but Kusal Perera grassed a top edge to reprieve Warner on 18. The left-hander, who has been out of touch in recent times, is making the islanders pay for the fluffed chance as he races to 32 with the help of five blazing boundaries.
