Although 2 wickets fell down early Sri Lankan batsmen managed to set a good total for Australia. Actually the new batting order was successful as it should. We saw Thirimanne build up the inning confidently with Dilshan. As the experienced Mahela made the best decision to play down the order other than coming at no.4. It was a confident batting performance by Sri Lankans and hope players will continue it further.
Fielding was brilliant by Sri Lankans and bowlers contributed their best to restrict Australia. But giving too many extras should be taken into consideration.
