50.6 Mitchell Starc to Vishwa Fernando

OUT! Bowled. Mitchell Starc to Vishwa Fernando. Full toss, off stump backing away defending, missed to. Quick, full and straight. Starc cleans up Fernando with a perfect yorker and Australia win the series 2-0 with a comprehensive 366 run victory. They have thoroughly outplayed the Sri Lankans in both matches with the batsmen stepping up in Canberra, while Mitchell Starc was back to somewhere near his best finishing with 10 wickets in the match. Lots of positives for the Aussies with maiden tons for Travis Head and Kurtis Patterson while Usman Khawaja found some form along with Joe Burns who smashed a big 180 on day one. On the other hand Sri Lanka have a few problems to think about as they head to South Africa. Their batting has left much to be desired while they are without their first string bowling attack and the trio of Kasun Rajitha, Chamika Karunaratne and Vishwa Fernando struggled on this placid surface. Good end to the summer then for Australia and now they can concentrate on the World Cup with plenty of white ball stuff coming up.

5.6 Nathan Lyon to Dimuth Karunaratne

Nathan Lyon to Dimuth Karunaratne. Off break length ball, middle stump on the back foot defending, to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Paine. And they are off. Umpire's have decided it's too dark to let the Aussies carry on so that will be stumps. Australia's day again but the Sri Lankan opening pair have done well to negate the tricky six over spell. Play will resume tomorrow with Sri Lanka requiring another 499 runs to win with all 10 wickets in hand. There is possibility for some bad weather around in the couple of days but Australia will fancy their chances to wrap up the match and the series. Do join us tomorrow at the same time.
