Australia beat Srilanka in the Tri-Series
The one day international match between Australia and Srilanka on yesterday had a nail biting finish. Australia hosted a decent total of 231 runs. In which Captain Clark scored 57 runs in 88 balls. In reply the Srilanka started slowly and also they lost too many early wickets. Dilshun was out after scoring 40 runs and also their ex captain Sankakara was run out as he slipped while taking a run. But the hero for the visitors is definitely Mathews who scored a brilliant 64 and almost took away the match from Austrlians but the luck would have had other thoughts. Being at 181 for 9 the last pair took the match to a last but one ball finish but falling short by 5 runs.
