FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to David Warner. Slower ball full toss, down leg side on the front foot flick, well timed in the air under control past fine leg for 4 runs. This almost sums up the series for Sri Lanka. Juicy full toss to Warner which he clips around the corner to the fence. He finishes on 57 not out and ends unbeaten in the whole series. Along with Aaron Finch they got Australia off to a flying start which enabled the rest of the innings to go smoothly without any dramas, even when the odd wicket fell.Plenty of work for Sri Lanka to do in this format while Australia will hope to carry on their form when they welcome Pakistan to these shores.

Kane Richardson to Lasith Malinga. Half volley, outside off stump no foot movement driving, inside edge to short leg for 1 run, fielded by Richardson. Much better performance from the Sri Lankans tonight and they have posted a decent total of 142-6. Kusal Perera was the main scorer with a half-century to his name while there were some lusty blows at the end from Bhanuka Rajapaksa to give them some momentum going into the next innings. Australia will still back themselves to chase this down with David Warner in terrific form at the top.

APPEAL! Adam Zampa to Bhanuka Rajapaksa. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Carey, appeal made for Stumped.

Start of Sri Lanka Innings. It hasn't been the happiest of tours for Sri Lanka so far after being soundly beaten in the first two T20s. One more match to play though and they will want to put on a show for their visiting fans while Australia are eyeing up a whitewash. A 100 record for Sri Lanka at the MCG with two wins from two but to make it three in a row they need to set a much bigger total than in the previous match. Two changes for Australia with Mitchell Starc and Ben McDermott in the XI while Sri Lanka have made multiple changes, hoping to find the winning combination.

This almost sums up the series for Sri Lanka. Juicy full toss to Warner which he clips around the corner to the fence. He finishes on 57 not out and ends unbeaten in the whole series. Along with Aaron Finch they got Australia off to a flying start which enabled the rest of the innings to go smoothly without any dramas, even when the odd wicket fell.Plenty of work for Sri Lanka to do in this format while Australia will hope to carry on their form when they welcome Pakistan to these shores.

SIX! Lahiru Kumara to Aaron Finch. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Bit of a freebie to end the over.

APPEAL! Lahiru Kumara to Aaron Finch. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to short third man for 1 run, fielded by Mendis, appeal made for L.B.W. Sharp delivery first up. Beat Finch for pace and he was stuck on the back foot. Loud shout as the ball thuds into the pad but the umpire's finger stays down. Review taken by Sri Lanka as they believe this is out. Showing to be clipping the top of the stumps so not out remains.
