Sri Lanka vs Australia, 3rd ODI, Australia tour of Sri Lanka, 2022

22:22 local time, 16:52 GMT, 22:22 IST: A record hunt for the Premadasa from Sri Lanka, and the remarkable thing is the ease with which they have done it. Who saw this coming? Halfway through, it looked like 291 was a strong total on a field it was up to. But it turned out that the biggest obstacle for Sri Lanka was the fitness issues for Nissanka and Mendis during their superb 213 second wicket partnership. Mendis stumbled retired hurt for 87, but Nissanka fought on to complete his first ODI hundred. At no point during the chase did the pair let the course spiral out of control. They stayed on top of it the entire time and dominated the spin options Australia had at their disposal. A full house in the Premadasa was treated to a sublime victory. We will have the presentations soon.
