    OUT! Stumped. Nathan Lyon to Suranga Lakmal. Off break length ball, off stump down the track Slog, missed to wicketkeeper, by Paine.
    Tossed up inviting the big shot and Suranga Lakmal cannot resist charging down the track. Undone by the spin through the gate and Paine whips off the bails to give Australia the victory and a 1-0 lead in the series.
    It has been a dominant affair from the first session until now. The only thing that didn't go their way was the coin toss and none of the batsmen were able to kick on after making starts. Both debutants contributed with bat and ball and they took to Test cricket like a duck to water. Pat Cummins continued his red hot form with 10 wickets in the match and a career best performance in the second innings.
    On the other hand a lot of things for the Sri Lankan team to think about, mainly their batting performance. Neither innings was up to scratch and both times they had the best part of the day to bat. Another worry is the injury to Kumara which kept him from batting and also means he will have to leave the tour. Along with a niggle which Dushmantha Chameera picked up they have a lot of things of their plate when it comes to the seam attack. Join us for the next Test on the 31st at Canberra.
