Australia Vs Sri Lanka 2nd Final CB Series 6 Mar Live

Upul TharangaThe Commonwealth Bank Series continues to live up to its expectations as some spectacular cricket has been on display through the weeks of action. Spirited Sri Lanka now find themselves yet again on the survival line as they face the hosts Australia in the second of best-of-three finals in Adelaide on Tuesday.

Australia won the first final by 15 runs, though they would have expected the margin to be clearer than it was. A masterful return to form by David Warner has signaled to the opposition of the destructive capability he possesses.

Warner scored 163 runs, and was out of the final ball of the innings. Given his form, power and, above all, fitness, Sri Lanka will be wary of a similar onslaught in the second match. Matthew Wade scored a half-century opening with Warner. But Australia will be discussing plans to dislodge Sri Lankan wickets regularly after Sri Lanka made an almost match-clinching comeback.

Sri Lanka will be disappointed that their winning streak against Australia came to an end in the all-important final. They will, however, be in high spirits heading into the second match knowing the unpredictable and never-say-die attitude of the team.

Set a daunting target thanks to Warner's heroics, the Sri Lankan batsmen fell away to leave the team tottering at 144 for six. It was then that Nuwan Kulasekara walked in and breezed to 73 off just 43 balls before being dismissed.

Upul Tharanga, batting at six, continued to march on but the fight with the Duckworth/Lewis par total under the drizzling rain proved too much for Sri Lanka as they eventually ran out of steam. While there are areas where Sri Lanka need to improve, there is no ruling out a possibility of a series-leveling win at Adelaide.

The match starts at 1.50pm local time and weather is expected to stay clear for the match.
