Earlier, Sri Lanka opted to bat first on the difficult Pallekele wicket and both Danushka Gunathilaka and Pathum Nisanka reached half-centuries before giving success to the touring side in the 20th over.

Agar then got rid of Dhananjaya de Silva, who was caught brilliantly by Warner, before Mendis took over to settle the Sri Lankan nerves in the company of Charit Aslanka (37).
