    Australia have secured a series win over Sri Lanka after easily winning today’s 2nd T20i by 9 wickets in Brisbane.

    Sri Lanka’s batting was dismal, succumbing to disciplined bowling by the hosts were rattled out for 117 with Billy Stanlake, Pat Cummins, Ashton Agar and Adam Zampa each grabbing 2 wickets.

    Australia stumbled early in their chase, losing skipper Aaron Finch for a golden duck to Lasith Malinga.

    However, that was all the joy Sri Lanka would get as David Warner (60 not out) and Steven Smith (53 not out) took Australia to the target without any further hiccups.

    The win gives the Aussies an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.
