AUS beat SL, 4th T20I: Glenn Maxwell, Josh Inglis star in Australia’s victory- Australia have defeated Sri Lanka by 6 wickets to go 4-0 in the T20I series. Glenn Maxwell & Josh Inglis were the stars of the run chase. The duo contributed unbeaten 48 and 40 runs respectively. Sri Lanka got a decent start in their defence but were always short of the desired runs. Lahiru Kumara, who took a couple of wickets, was the pick of the bowlers for Sri Lanka.

Australia did not get off to an ideal start as the hosts lost opening batter Ben McDermott (9) in the fifth over to Maheesh Theekshana. Soon after, Lahiru Kumara dismissed Australia skipper Aaron Finch (2) and Ashton Agar (26), and the hosts were reduced to 49/3 in the ninth over.

Josh Inglis and Glenn Maxwell then got together at the crease and the duo revived Australia’s innings. After 12 overs, Australia’s score read 86/3, with the hosts still needing 54 runs for the win. Inglis departed after playing a 40-run knock but Maxwell (48*) and Marcus Stoinis (8*) ensured that the hosts get over the line with 11 balls to spare. With this win, Australia has gained a 4-0 lead.

Earlier, Sri Lanka had set 140 runs target for Australia in the 4th T20I at MCG. Pathum Nissanka provided a brilliant opening partnership to Sri Lanka after being sent in to bat. The likes of Charith Asalanka and Kusal Mendis also gave their best but failed to continue their innings. Glenn Maxwell completed a brilliant run out to trigger SL’s collapse. Kane Richardson & Jhye Richardson were the pick of the bowlers with 2 wickets.

In the final five overs, Sri Lanka lost six wickets and added just 35 more runs to the total. Kusal Mendis and Danushka Gunathilaka also chipped in with handy cameos of 27 and 17 as Sri Lanka posted a score of more than the 130-run mark.


Now, Sri Lanka are on a brink of whitewash and the final t20I is scheduled to take place on February 20, Sunday at the same venue at MCG.
