Faulkner, Smith shine in Aussie win: 1st ODI (RPS)

Allrounder James Faulkner claimed his best ODI haul of 4-38 and half-centuries from Steve Smith and Aaron Finch lifted Australia to a morale-boosting three-wicket win over Sri Lanka.

Earlier, Sri Lanka made a stuttering start before Chandimal (80 not out) and Kusal Mendis (67) steadied the ship. But all-rounder Faulkner (4-38) struck twice late in the innings to leave Sri Lanka short at 227-8.

Australia 228 for 7 (Smith 58, Finch 56, Bailey 39, Dilruwan Perera 3-48) beat Sri Lanka 227 for 8 (Chandimal 80*, Kusal Mendis 67, Faulkner 4-38, Starc 3-32) by three wickets.
