At the close of the opening day of 3rd Test match, Australia managed to dismiss Sri Lanka for 294 on Thursday with the confident to wrap up the series 3-0.
Both Lahiru Thirimanne, who scored 91 just after joining the team as an emergency replacement, and Mahela Jayawardene, who hit 72 in his second last innings as captain, showed the hosts a resistance in Sydney.
Jackson Bird took 4 for 41, Mitchell Starc 3 for 71 and Peter Siddle grabbed a brace with spinner Nathan Lyon pitching in to end Thirimanne’s well-fought inning with an exceptional catch from David Warner.
Jayawardene played cautiously before getting caught by Clarke at the slip off Starc. Starc also removed Angelo Mathews (15) and Dinesh Chandimal for 24.
Bird had removed both Sri Lanka openers, having Dimuth Karunaratne caught off a top edge for five and afterwards dismissed Tillakaratne Dilshan, caught behind for 34. His third victim was Rangana Herath (5) and he had also removed Suranga Lakmal (5) to end the Sri Lankan innings.
