After winning the toss, Sri Lanka invited the Australian team to bat first and they scored 263 runs as their highest total in the shortest format of the game.

245/5 Vs New Zealand – 2018

The 3rd highest team total of Australia is 245 runs against New Zealand at Auckland on 16 Feb 2018. While Martin Guptill's 49-ball century was impressive, it was overshadowed by Australia's world-record run chase at Eden Park in Auckland. To set the stage for Australia's response, D'Arcy Short and David Warner blasted explosive boundaries and struck the 50s. Australia's middle-order put the foot on the accelerator when New Zealand struggled to secure the win with overs to play.
