Colombo: Australia wrapped up their One Day International (ODI) series with Sri Lanka in Colombo on Friday, but they had to rely on a dramatic batting collapse from their hosts and some inspired bowling from Michael Kasprowicz to do so. The Aussies themselves had slumped to a modest 233 all out before the Sri Lankans - who were at one stage 140 for two thanks to 101 from their wicketkeeper batsman Kumar Sangakkara - were bowled out for 193, Kapsrowicz taking 5-45. The 40-run win gives Australia an unassailable 3-1 lead in the best of five competition. (AP)
