Moon Of Liberty Cricket – 3rd Test SL v Aus



3rd Test Match – Sri Lanka v Australia

Rangana Herath took 13 wickets in the match including 7 wickets in the key second innings helping Sri Lanka whitewash Australia 3-0 in the series. The first innings suggested a good tight contest, Dinesh Chandimal and Dhananjaya de Silva getting Centuries for Sri Lanka with Shaun Marsh and and Steve Smith responding for Australia to give the visitors a small 24 run lead. Kaushaul Silva hit 115 while de Silva’s 65 Not Out put the pressure on Australia setting a target of 324 to win.With a pitch increasingly friendly to the spin of Herath, the Green and Gold’s got nowhere near the target being bowled out for 160. Only David Warner with 68 put up any sort of resistance, but it was Herath’s day and series as Australia never coped with the conditions throughout.
