Right then! What a fantastic day of cricket! Totally unexpected to see Australia losing their way so quickly but they are known to bounce back from this kind of situation. The T20I series went to the visitors' side while ODI series was grabbed by the hosts! The Test series turned out to be a fair one as it ended up in a draw. We are done and dusted with this long tour. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. The next assignment for Sri Lanka is against Pakistan who will be touring them in a week's time while Australia have a break before Zimbabwe visit them. There is non stop cricket happening, so keep an eye on the schedule list and do join us for the coverage. From here, it is goodbye and cheers!
Dimuth Karunaratne, the skipper of Sri Lanka says that in the first match they didn't do much. And like Cummins said that it was important to put pressure on the team by scoring big runs. He says that on this ground they just try to do the basic right and he is happy with the batting performance. And in the bowling department, they just improved their line and lengths which troubled the Aussies. He says that they are ready for the Pakistan series and they just want to do basic rights and winning this match will give them more confidence going into that series.
Pat Cummins, the Australian skipper. He says that they got in a position where 400 plus in the first innings was gettable but they could not reach that and they had a couple of chances but they could not take it. Tells that they can learn a lot from these games and unfortunately they learned from a loss here but he is pleased that everyone will take a lot from this game. Applauds Sri Lankan hospitality and says that they had a great time here right from the time they arrived on the Lankan shores.
Dinesh Chandimal, the Player of the Series. He says that he is over the moon and tells that he is extremely pleased as the wickets are a bit tricky at Galle. Adds that he wanted to be proactive and he says that the wicket was tough in the first game and when he saw the wicket for this game he thought that it will play good for three days and he looked to cash in on that. Mentions that he was thinking about getting a lead of over 100 and thanks his family for the support they have given him through the ups and downs
No second thought to guess who is the Player of the match, it is the debutant Prabath Jayasuriya. He ended with 12 wickets overall. Prabath Jayasuriya says that he is very happy with his performance as he has worked very hard to achieve this feat. Tells that he was prepared and he played some A-team games and he is extremely pleased.
Stay tuned for the Presentation...
While there was a batting collapse by Australia. Sri Lanka showed determination in their skills as five batters scored fifty plus scores with Dinesh Chandimal scoring a magnificent double ton. At the end of Day 3, Sri Lanka had a lead of 67 runs and it was expected that Australia will come hard and take the wickets quickly but Dinesh Chandimal was resilient as he scored a double ton and the lead glued to 190. Australia could have done much better but the Lankan bowlers were too good for them in this match. Australia scored 364 runs in the first innings with centuries from Marnus Labuschagne and Steven Smith. They dominated the match in the start but once Sri Lankan batters stepped out, there was no coming back for the visitors.
If there was one man Sri Lanka need to be thankful for it was Prabath Jayasuriya, he was the architect of the Aussie's downfall. Six wickets in the first innings and six in the second! And that too on his debut! Unbelievable! Credit goes to Dinesh Chandimal as well. He stood there and scored a double ton to get a cushion lead but it was a really poor batting performance from the visitors. 9 wickets fell in the final session for them. David Warner and Usman Khawaja were off to a good start but once Warner fell, the doors opened for the hosts. The wickets fell one after the other and no one stood there for a long time. Marnus Labuschagne and Cameron Green tried to repair things as well but failed in the process. No one survived and the Aussies were bundled out for a mere 151.
A remarkable performance from the Lankans! A famous victory for the hosts! What an incredible match this was! We all thought that the final day could prove to be the decider but Sri Lanka had other plans! They bundled out Australia for 151 and won by an innings and 39 runs. First time they have done so against Australia in their history! The series ends in a draw! 1-1!

Prabath Jayasuriya To Mitchell Swepson OUT!
OUT! BOWLED! It's all over! Prabath Jayasuriya has his 12th wicket in the game and what a turnaround this has been from Sri Lanka! This is tossed up on middle and Mitchell Swepson tries to defend it off the back foot. However, Prabath Jayasuriya gets that turn again by which he has been troubling Aussies throughout this Test match. The ball beats the outside edge of Mitchell Swepson's blade and knocks over the off pole. Sri Lanka win by an innings and 39 runs.

Maheesh Theekshana To Nathan Lyon OUT!
OUT! LBW! Maheesh Theekshana has another and Lyon who started off with a boundary playing a sweep shot, walks back trying to repeat the same shot again. This is fuller on middle. Lyon goes for a big sweep-shot but misses. The ball again turns slightly away and hits Lyon on his pads. An appeal is entertained again as the umpire raises his finger. He reviews it but the Ball Tracking shows three reds and Australia lose nine now. Just a wicket away Lanka from a famous victory here! Mitchell Swepson is the last man in.

Maheesh Theekshana To Pat Cummins OUT!
OUT! LBW! Maheesh Theekshana comes back into the attack and strikes straight away!  Sri Lanka are just two wickets away now from a huge victory! Maheesh Theekshana with a flatter delivery on middle. It is probably a carrom ball that just turns away a bit after pitching. Cummins looks to defend it but ends up playing through the wrong line. The ball hits his pads and after a big appeal, the umpire raises his finger! Cummins though goes for a review but it does not make any difference as the Ball Tracking shows that the impact and wicket's hitting is umpire's call. So the original decision stays and Cummins has to walk back.

Starc takes a big stride forward to defend but does so in the wrong line, he gets an outside edge and Kusal Mendis dives to his right at first slip and takes a brilliant catch.

Cameron Green comes down the track to push at it but gets beaten and Niroshan Dickwella does really well to collect it and clip the bails off before Green can comes back in. He tries to but till then the bails were dislodged. Australia 6 down and are into the lower orders now. Still trailing by 73 runs.

A huge appeal for LBW and up goes the finger. Labuschagne knows he is out but still walks towards Green and tries to convince himself but gets the same answer from his partner. That is plumb in front. Out it is! The replay later shows three reds!

Ramesh Mendis To Marnus Labuschagne
TURN AND BOUNCE! This is tossed up on off, turning in sharply. Marnus Labuschagne goes to play at it but gets beaten by the turn and bounce and it hits him high on his body. The fielder at short fine leg catches it and the Lankan players make an appeal. However, the umpire turns it down. No review taken by Sri Lanka as well.

OUT! KNOCKED HIM OVER! What a delivery and Sri Lanka are right on top here! This is a lovely delivery that pitches on middle and then grips. A classic off-spinner's delivery. Head goes back and looks to defend. The ball turns away and knocks over his off pole. The crowd erupts and Australia are in all sorts of trouble here.

Prabath Jayasuriya To Steven Smith OUT!
OUT! LBW! THREE REDS! Prabath Jayasuriya continuing the good work from the first innings! He now has 8 wickets in this match! What a delivery again! This is flatter, length and on middle and off, it spins away after hitting the deck. Steven Smith rocks on the back foot and looks to defend but misses and gets pinged on the pads. A huge appeal for LBW and up goes the finger. Steven Smith walks towards Labuschagne and has a chat. He takes the review. Looks plumb there. No bat there confirms the Ultra Edge. Ball Tracking shows three reds and Smith has to go back. It was more in hope from Smith. The centurion goes for a cheap score this time. Australia in a deep trouble.

…Day 4, Session 3…
Sri Lanka have done well to get a big wicket of David Warner just before Tea! Australia still trail by 138 runs and though Aussie batters looked comfortable in the middle for the most part of their innings, they need to bat well in the final session to keep Sri Lanka away from running away with this game. Sri Lankan bowlers could not find much purchase with the ball but Ramesh Mendis managed to get a crucial breakthrough. However, the highlight of this session was the way Chandimal batted early on and his knock has given the Lankan skipper and his bowlers an extra cushion to settle into their groove as they look to push for a win. We shall be back for the final session at 3 pm IST (9.30 am GMT).

OUT! LBW! Ramesh Mendis gets the breakthrough. This is tossed up on middle, drifting in. David Warner goes for the sweep again but misses the ball completeley and gets rapped on the pads. The Sri Lankans appeal and the finger goes up. David Warner takes the review after consulting with his partner but the Ball Tracking shows three reds and he has to go back. A crucial breakthrough for Sri Lanka, Warner was looking pretty comfortable in the middle but fails to kick on again.
DRS Time! David Warner has been given out LBW! He has taken a review though. The replays roll in and the UltraEdge shows no bat involved. The Ball Tracking rolls and it shows three reds. So, the original decision stays and Warner has to walk back.
