Kasun Rajitha’s Career And Replacement For The Series

Asitha Fernando and Pramod Madushan will replace Rajitha and Pathirana in Sri Lanka’s team for the last T20I against Australia. Which is virtually a dead rubber, according to SLC. On Wednesday, Australia won the second T20I by three wickets. Taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series despite an explosive session from rising leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga (4/33).

For maintaining a slow over-rate during the match, Sri Lanka is also in a penalty for 40% of their match money. After the pace combo of Jhye Richardson (3/26) and Kane Richardson (4/30) held Sri Lanka to 124/9 in 20 overs. Australia’s experienced wicketkeeper Matthew Wade (26 not out) withstood the great pressure of batting with the tail to secure victory with 13 balls to spare.
