Australia notches first win in World Cup 2023 with victory over Sri Lanka

Australia vs Sri Lanka Highlights: ICC World Cup match no 14 was played between Aussies and Lankians at Ekana Sports City, Lucknow.


Australia secured its first victory in the ICC World Cup 2023 by defeating Sri Lanka with five wickets in Lucknow.

Having suffered losses in their initial two games of the tournament, Australia’s win brought life to their campaign. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, endured their third consecutive defeat, with their chances of making it to the semi-finals hanging by a thread.

Australia showcased urgency with the ball and successfully bowled out Sri Lanka for 209 in under 44 overs, with Adam Zampa leading the charge with impressive figures of 4-47. Despite Sri Lanka’s strong start at 157-1 near the halfway mark, their innings faltered, resulting in a below-par total.

Australia faced some challenges during their chase due to strong winds, but Josh Inglis’s 58 and Glenn Maxwell’s 31 ensured their victory with nearly 15 overs to spare.
