Australia Vs Sri Lanka

Australia set new T20 record score against Sri Lanka

Australia have set a new record score in Twenty20 international cricket, hitting 263-3 against Sri Lanka in Pallekele.

The total beat the 260 set by Sri Lanka against Kenya in 2007.

All-rounder Glenn Maxwell hit 145 not out from just 65 balls.

Sri Lanka - who had won the toss and elected to bowl first - could only manage 178-9 in reply as Australia won the first game of the two-match series by 85 runs.

Maxwell, who opened the batting, hit nine sixes and 14 fours in his innings - the second-highest in international T20 cricket.
