OUT! Run Out. Pat Cummins to Lakshan Sandakan. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, back to bowler, fielded by Cummins. It's all over, Cummins shows amazing awareness and agility to gather the ball and remove the stump from the ground after the bails had already been dislodged. A sorry end to the innings for Sri Lanka, however another fantastic Australian effort in the field. The hosts will require just 118 to seal the series with a game to spare thanks to a sublime bowling and fielding performance. Kusal Perera briefly threatened for the tourists, playing some gorgeous strokes on his way to 27, however no other Sri Lankan batsman could really get going against a relentless Aussie attack.

OUT! Stumped. Adam Zampa to Lasith Malinga. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump down the track Slog, missed to wicketkeeper, by Carey. No chance of a review saving Malinga this time, he misses with an ugly heave and Carey does the rest. Zampa gets his man eventually and Australia are on the verge of bowling Sri Lanka out.

APPEAL! Adam Zampa to Lasith Malinga. Googly length ball, outside off stump down the track Slog, hit pad to short third man for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Up goes the finger, Malinga misses with his swipe and the umpire is convinced. The Sri Lankan skipper takes a punt on a review and it works for him, ball tracking shows that was bouncing too high. Zampa can't believe it.

OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to Isuru Udana. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep backward square leg, by Richardson. Udana gets cramped for room and can only skew this into the safe hands of Richardson. Excellent bowling, this was clearly a plan with the ideal field setting.

OUT! Caught. Billy Stanlake to Dasun Shanaka. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge to wicketkeeper, by Carey. Prolonged appeal and eventually the finger goes up. No thoughts of a review from Shanaka so he must know he's made contact with it. Replays show a clear tickle on the top edge to leave Sri Lanka in tatters. Stanlake has looked threatening with every ball he has bowled tonight.

OUT! Bowled. Ashton Agar to Kusal Perera. Arm length ball, middle stump on the back foot Late Cut, bottom edge to. Chopped on, Kusal Perera goes and with him go Sri Lanka's chances of posting a healthy total. This is really intelligent bowling, firing in a quick delivery that skids to cramp the batsman for room. Agar is keeping things really tight for the hosts.

OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to Niroshan Dickwella. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to short extra cover, by Turner. Another wicket, Cummins gets his first of the evening as Dickwella gets in an awkward tangle. He was looking to clip the ball to leg and instead it balloons up into the offside for the easiest catch Turner will ever take. The bounce did the trick there for the Aussie quick.

OUT! Caught. Ashton Agar to Avishka Fernando. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on, by Cummins. Wonderful spin bowling, Agar has the bravery to toss this up and entice the big shot. He gets rewarded as Cummins tumbles forward to complete the catch, judging it perfectly as he charged in from the rope. Sri Lanka can't get going at the moment.

OUT! Bowled. Billy Stanlake to Danushka Gunathilaka. Length ball, down leg side backing away Slog, missed to. The bails light up and The Gabba celebrates as one of their own takes a big wicket for Australia.

Turner misses with his initial attempt to run him out but Agar anticipates well to complete the job. This isn't the start Sri Lanka wanted.

Start of Sri Lanka Innings. Welcome to coverage of the Second T20I between Australia and Sri Lanka in Brisbane. The tourists are under pressure to show a big improvement after being resoundingly thumped in the first match of the series, so they have made three changes to their eleven for this evening. The hosts have just one change with Billy Stanlake being unleashed on his home ground in place of Mitchell Starc. The lights are on and The Gabba is ready for some entertainment with Sri Lanka preparing to bat first.

Wide Wanindu Hasaranga to David Warner. Leg spinner length ball, down leg side on the back foot pulling, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Perera. Australia have secured a T20I series win over Sri Lanka with another utterly comprehensive victory in Brisbane. While David Warner was the star on Sunday, tonight it was more about the hosts efforts in the field as the bowlers and fielders were exemplary. The tourists never really got going with the bat, struggling against fiery pace and wily spin with a couple of run outs thrown into the mix to make things even worse. Chasing a small total, Steve Smith provided an element of calm after Aaron Finch departed first ball, with the rampant Warner once again in the runs. We'll be back for the conclusion of this series on Friday at the MCG.

APPEAL! Lakshan Sandakan to David Warner. Left-Arm Leg Spin back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Sandakan, appeal made for Run Out. Almost a run out at the non-striker's end similar to the one that ended the Sri Lankan innings, but the bowler removes the stump with the wrong hand. Silly.
