Australia finally start with win by winning fisrt ODI by 3 wickets of the ODI series after the bad Test Series against Sri Lanka.

It was also great match when bowlers looks good and Bowlers dominate the match rather then Batsmen and that will increase the passion of the fans to ODI matches.

In first match, Australia won the toss and elect to bowl first and Starc strike in his first over it self as he famous for he bowled Kusal parera on second bowl of the match.

Then sri Lankan batsmen played well and reach to 50 run at the 12.3 overs.

Kusal Mendis looks like he stand up giantess whole Australians, he won the first test match for his team after 176 runs knowk in second inning.

While Dinesh Chandimal also looks good in this series and he scored 80 odd runs in this match also and try to help the Sri Lankan score to reach 227 runs and give some thing to defend for their bowlers.

In chase of 228, Warner played the inning agaisnt his style and he score just 8 runs in 17 balls and because of this he got out early.

After IPL warner only played one good inning in this tour and it was not good for the Australia and him self also cause Khwaja continues to impress.
