Adam Zampa, the legspinner, claimed three wickets to bowl Australia to victory and avoid a Twenty20 International series whitewash against Sri Lanka in Adelaide on Wednesday (February 22). Zampa, who was left out of the previous match which Sri Lanka won to clinch the three-match series, captured 3 for 25 at a crucial stage as Australia went on to win by 41 runs. He was named the man of the match.

Should Dilshan have continued until Cricket World Cup 2019?
"It was quite an embarrassing defeat. It was pure poor batting and the execution. You have to be really skillful to bat against these guys, especially in these conditions. Anderson once again showed his class. Stuart Broad was brilliant as well. One or two of our guys needed to raise our hands and put up a good score, particularly in the first innings. We failed to do that in the first innings, and once again in the second innings, so that's a pretty obvious reason for our defeat." - Angelo Mathews
Cricket is a game of fine margins and Mathews is set to be a modern great. Hang in their Angie, this team can achieve something on this tour. Thirimane and the youngsters form was a real positive. Prasad was missed. Chameera should be persisted with. If Bairstow was our early outcome could have been very different.
