Zak Evans and Austin Waugh led Australia U19 to a comprehensive four-wicket win to take the five-match Youth series 3-1 at Kingston Twin Ovals, Hobart earlier today. Playing away from home, the young Sri Lankans showed tremendous courage to stay competitive throughout the tour.
Batting first, Sri Lanka lost 4 wickets for 39 but Jehan Daniel and Krishan Arachige took the side past the 100 run mark. Rashmila Dilshan and Nipun Ransika battled it out to finish 163 for 8 in 50 overs.
In response, Australia lost 4 for 41 but the lower middle order saw the side through to an impressive win. Austin Waugh made 60 in 125 deliveries for the hosts.
However, Zak Evans was adjudged player of the match for his 4 for 30 in 10 overs.
The final youth one-day international will be played on the 23rd of April at the same venue.
