SL vs AUS, 2nd ODI Highlights: Sri Lanka on Thursday defeated Australia by 26 runs in the second ODI in Pallekele to level the five-match series 1-1. Chasing a total of 216, Australia were bowled out for 189, losing five wickets in the space of 19 runs. Earlier, Sri Lanka were 220 for nine after 47.3 overs before rain interrupted the proceedings. Kusal Mendis top-scored for Sri Lanka again with a fine 36, while Dhananjaya de Silva and captain Dasun Shanaka scored 34 each. For Australia, Pat Cummins took four wickets while debutant Matthew Kuhnemann and Glenn Maxwell bagged two wickets each. Australia skipper Aaron Finch won the toss and elected to field first. The injury-hit tourists, who lead the five-match series 1-0, made three changes and handed left-arm spinner Matthew Kuhnemann his ODI debut in Pallekele. Kuhnemann, Travis Head and Mitchell Swepson come in for Ashton Agar, Marcus Stoinis and Jhye Richardson. Sri Lanka made one change with the injured Wanindu Hasaranga making way for Jeffrey Vandersay as they look to bounce back from their opening loss. Hasaranga’s absence is a big blow for Sri Lanka, with the all-rounder having played a brilliant knock at the death and then returned his best ODI figures in the last match. (SCORECARD)
