Reality check for SL as Aussie win T20 contest

Sri Lankan cricketers had their first reality check of the World Cup when mighty Australians handed them a defeat in the T20 World Cup with a dominating seven-wicket win at Dubai International Cricket Stadium last night.

Sri Lanka seemed threatening early on when Charith Asalanka and Kusal Janith Perera put on a rapid second-wicket stand but lost control with a flurry of wickets falling in quick time.

Their score of 154 was below par in what appeared to be a placid batting track as Australia sailed home with three overs to spare.
