The Aussies went on a hitting spree right from the first delivery at the Adelaide Oval as they racked up 233\2 in the 20 overs. Aaron Finch and David Warner shared a magnificent opening stand of 122 runs in the space of 10.5 overs.

Warner, playing his first international ever since his suspension brought up his maiden ton off the final delivery of the innings. The Australian innings, which comprised 25 fours and 10 sixes also saw Kasun Rajitha deliver the most expensive spell in T20I. The pacer conceded 75 runs off his 4 allotted overs.

The visitors, chasing 234 had a dreadful time with the bat after the tem could only manage to score 99-9 after batting out the entire 20 overs, which is one less than what Warner scored in the first innings.
