After Australia posted 164 for 6 in 20 overs, Sri Lanka scored 164 for eight in their chase. In the Super Over, Sri Lanka could only manage five runs for one wicket, which the hosts chased down in three deliveries.

It was the first tied match between Australia and Sri Lanka and 23rd overall in Twenty-20 International cricket. Australia and Sri Lanka both involved in four tied matches each.

** Sri Lanka were allowed only four fielders outside the 30-yard circle for the final over of Australia's innings, as they became the first men's side to be penalised under the ICC's new over-rates rules for Twenty-20 Internationals.

Under the new system, teams have to begin the final over of the innings by the 85th minute since the start of the innings.

As Sri Lanka had not done so, captain Dasun Shanaka was asked to move one of the five fielders he would have stationed on the boundary, into the circle. That over, delivered by debutant Nuwan Thushara, went for 16, after Matthew Wade struck a six and a four on the leg side.
