Aussies stumble to win after Maxwell blast: 2nd T20 (RPS)

A nervous Australia stumbled across the line to secure a four-wicket win over Sri Lanka for a clean sweep of the two-match Twenty20 series.

Glenn Maxwell smashed 66 off 29 balls, including four sixes but Australia went from 93-0 to 120-6 as the Sri Lankan spinners had their top order tied up in knots after a rapid start.

Earlier, Sri Lanka collapsed spectacularly in good batting conditions to end at 128-9 after James Faulkner and Adam Zampa claimed three wickets each with only Dhananjaya de Silva`s fighting half-century showing any resistance.

Australia 130 for 6 (Maxwell 66, Warner 25, Dilshan 2-8, Pathirana 2-23) beat Sri Lanka 128 for 9 (Dhananjaya 62, Zampa 3-16, Faulkner 3-9) by four wickets .
