Only this Stoinis has become the fastest half-century player for Australia in T20 internationals. He has left behind David Warner and Glenn Maxwell in this matter. Warner and Maxwell scored fifties in 18 balls for Australia. Along with this, Stoinis has now taken this record one ball less than him.
Sri Lanka was given a target of 158 runs
The Australian team, which started with a defeat in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, has been given a target of 158 runs in the match against Sri Lanka. In the match, Aaron Finch won the toss and decided to bowl first. In such a situation, the Sri Lankan team could score only 157 runs in 20 overs while batting.
The start of the Australian team that came to chase this goal has not been anything special. Even in the power play, the team could not hit a single four or six. However, Marcus Stoinis, who came to bat in the middle order, started playing quickly and took the team to victory in just 16.3 overs.
Before this, the current champion Australia had to face a crushing defeat at the hands of New Zealand in the very first match of the tournament.
