Australia vs Sri Lanka Highlights, Live Streaming, Online – T20 World Cup

Filled under:

Scoreline: Australia 159/9: Mitchell Johnson 28 (13), David Hussey 28 (22), Brett Lee 15 (5) – Ajantha Mendis 4-20-3, Lasith Malinga 4-36-3
Sri Lanka win in 19 overs: Kumar Sangakkara 55 (42), Dilshan 53 (32)

Australia, despite Warner providing his if I play well today, I won’t tomorrow moment, played like Australia with both Ponting and Watson looking super in the early stage of their innings. And then Mendis happened.

When Ajantha Mendis flicked the Indian team (barring Sachin and Dhoni – to a certain extent) during their 2008 tour of SL, he was the next big thing on everyone’s minds. And then the ODI repeat tour by India seemed to have sorted him out. The sorting out was piled on during the IPL. If ever Mendis was sitting in a corner somewhere wondering how easily he could be forgotten, someone should have walked up to him and said, Relax, the Aussies are coming. There’s a reason why the cricket world throws spin (Botha – just kidding) at Australia since the departure of Hayden and Gilchrist.
