“We were outplayed in the powerplay – with the bat and with the ball. That’s where the difference was in the game. The partnership between Wade and Sams was outstanding, some really good stuff with the ball as well but probably wasn’t quite enough in the end. I think we’ve got a lot of answers, it’s been a fantastic series for players individually. For us to continue to grow as a team has been fantastic as well.” said Finch after the game.

“Sri Lanka are a very dangerous side. To win four in a row was really good. To win five is really tough in this format of the game. (Positives) The flexibility of Josh Inglis throughout the order was fantastic. He showed that his game is well and truly suited to international cricket. The depth in our bowling continues to grow which is brilliant. The way Ash Agar came back into the side was unbelievable. He’s bowled the house down,” he added.
