The Aussies are coming back off a thumping victory against Sri Lanka where they showed a lot of intent. Marcus Stoinis, the flamboyant all-rounder registered the fastest half-century (17 balls) by an Australian batter. The peculiarity of his knock was that he didn’t allow the bowlers to settle.

Crucial Contest for Australia
