Cannot login my Github account through sourcetree

When I try to add my Github account on sourcetree using HTTPS and Basic authentication it throws me an Error saying - Failed to check login for user. Authentication required.

Did you try to log out and then log back into your GitHub account?

(Potentially same kind of issue as Github Personal Access Token not working for Basic Auth)
