Australia won by 10 wickets
Adam Zampa | Player of the Match: Sri Lanka got off to bit of a flier, so we needed to peg it back. To be honest, it (the surface) was quite slow in the first innings, it spun a little bit more than it did in the second innings. I think the moisture and dew took effect in the second innings. I find them (Sri Lanka) really challenging. They are very good players of spin, I bowled well tonight and glad I did. I have tended to bowl a little bit in the powerplay, a little bit towards the back end in recent times but with the team that we have got, the big three will bowl in the powerplay and Maxwell bowling a couple of overs, my job is to get wickets in the middle and make it easy for the guys at the back end. David (Warner) played really well. It is good that those guys got to spend some time in the middle.
Shanaka (SL): Have to admit that wicket was too good. Got the start we needed but in the middle phase, we couldn't capitalize. Losing good batsmen in the middle cost us. The other day Asalanka took us home. Likewise, the batsmen who get set need to continue till 15-16 overs. That's an area we have to be concerned about. Felt we were 25-30 runs short. We know how good those two batsmen are in world cricket (Finch and Warner). Needed to bowl well and contain them in the powerplay. Couldn't do that. We know the Sharjah wicket, have played two games there. Should come well in that game.
Finch (AUS): That was a really good performance. SL got off to a flier. But Zampa dragged it back, and then Starc. We felt it was a really good wicket and to chase that down was nice. When the ball was flying around it felt like they were going at 15 an over, but you look up and it was 8 an over. Nice when you get a couple in the middle of the bat early. Knew that we had to take a chance against the quicks early on, with the spinners coming in later. When you're looking at the impact on the game, Zamps was terrific tonight. He was fantastic, got big wickets. That was a world-class performance from him. Always a great battle (England) no matter the format.
