Opener David Warner thumped a maiden T20 international century as Australia kicked off their home summer with a 134-run thrashing of Sri Lanka at Adelaide Oval on Sunday.
Warner’s whirlwind unbeaten 100 from 56 balls at Adelaide Oval underpinned Australia’s 223-2 the country’s fourth-highest T20 total and best on home soil.
Captain Aron Finch shrugged off an injury doubt to blast 64 before being caught slogging, while Glenn Maxwell hammered 62 from 28 balls.
Warner, on his 33rd birthday and in his first home international since being banned for ball-tampering in South Africa. Leapt wildly into the air on reaching his milestone from the last ball of Australia’s innings.
Sri Lanka fast bowler Kasun Rajitha finished with 0-75, the most runs conceded in a four-over spell in T20 internationals.
Spinner Adam Zampa finished with 3-14 to be the pick of the bowlers, with fast bowlers Mitchell Starc (2-18) and Pat Cummins (2-27) grabbing two wickets each.
Sri Lanka came into the match on a four-game T20 winning streak, including all three matches in Pakistan and the final match on a tour of New Zealand.
The series moves to Brisbane on Wednesday, with the third and final match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday.
