T20 Series:Angelo Matthews helps Sri Lanka lead 1-0

Angelo Matthews Sri Lankan Player
Angelo Matthews towards the end of the first Twenty20 cricket match against Australia held on 26/01/2013 helped Sri Lanka win with a flourish.After the disappointing one day series where they only managed to level the series they will definitely be looking for a win in their second twenty20 match as well.David Warner's batting was superb as he managed to make 90 runs.That's a huge score in a twenty20 match.However the score the Australians ended with(137) didn't look to be very challenging for a twenty20 match but i think the Australians bowled well and it did require some taking from the Sri Lankans to win the match.

Highlights of the match:

Australia Batting & Bowling:

David Warner - Batting - 90(62)*

Glen Maxwell - Bowling - 2 Wickets for 15 Runs

Sri Lanka Batting & Bowling:
