Sri Lanka clinch series in thrilling finish
Sri Lanka clinched the final Twenty20 international against Australia and seal the series 2-0 . Glenn Maxwell hit two successive boundaries to bring Australia close to their target but could not make contact with the last delivery sent down by Thisara Perera as Sri Lanka eked out a narrow victory via the Duckworth-Lewis method.
Australia were required to score 122 runs from 15 overs and 18 runs from the last over from Perera, who removed George Bailey with the second ball and followed it with a waist-high full toss which was adjudged a no ball. Marsh hit a single and watched as Maxwell hit two boundaries to raise hopes before failing to put bat to the ball at the death.
