David Warner celebrated 33rd birthday in style scoring his maiden T20I century. Warner scored unbeaten 100, off just 56 deliveries, as Australia beat Sri Lanka by 134 runs in the first T20I match in the three-match series. David Warner, who is Australia's highest run-scorer in T20Is, smashed four sixes and 10 fours, as he smashed Sri Lankan bowlers all around Adelaide.  Warner's highest ever T20I score came in his first game at home for Australia since his year-long ban over his involvement in the ball-tampering scandal.

Warner, along with Finch, got off to a cracking start, scoring 57 in the powerplay. The duo carried on the onslaught until Aaron Finch fell for 64, with the score at 122.  Glen Maxwell smashed 62 off just 28 deliveries as he put up a 107-run stand with Warner as Australia reached 233 for 2 in their 20 overs.

In reply, Sri Lanka were never in chase they could manage just 99 runs with loss of 9 wickets in their 20 overs.
