Usman Khawaja's composed 89, following a collective bowling effort earlier in the day, helped Australia march to a comfortable five-wicket victory in their second warm-up fixture, against Sri Lanka yesterday.  

After the Australian spinners restricted Sri Lanka to a sub-par 239 for 8, Khawaja was the common denominator in the second, third and fourth-wicket partnerships that made the chase look a mere formality.

Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins troubled the Sri Lankan openers with the new ball, and even created a few chances that they failed to latch on to.

Just as Sri Lanka looked set for 250-plus, Starc put an end to de Silva's cameo, seven short of a fifty, in the penultimate over while Cummins struck with the first ball of the 48th to dismiss Thisara.
