Aslanka smashes ton

Highlights

  • Helping Asalanka, Dhananjaya de Silva also scored 60 off 61 deliveries
  • Hasaranga helped Sri Lanka with 21* off 20 deliveries
  • Sri Lanka lead the 5 match ODI series 2-1

Sri Lanka in their ongoing series against the Aussies have been in top-notch form. The Aussies who have struggled against the Lankan tigers in the subcontinent conditions are 2-1 down in the five-match ODI series that is being played. Sri Lanka who were reduced to 207-6 in the 41st over amassed a total of 258 courtesy of Asalanka's 110 off 106 deliveries. 

In the amazing ton that Asalanka scored, he hit 10 boundaries along with one maximum at a strike rate of 103.77. With a recovery like this from the Sri Lankan side, the momentum has been away from the Aussies who now need to chase this total down if they are to stay alive in this series. With the likes of Warner and Smith staying out of form, problems are plenty for Aussies.
