Commentary (Australia innings)

Herath was the pick of the bowlers for Sri Lanka as he picked up 4 wickets whereas Pradeep got 2 and one for Dilshan. They were bowling good at one stage but the Aussie batsmen kept scoring runs. It will require a solid task for Sri Lanka from here on. Join us in a while for the Sri Lankan batting.

Great batting from Australia, will be happy with the lead of 138. Hughes and Warner would have gone to make it big but they missed out on their tons as they were out in their 80s. Clarke then scored a decent half-century. It was then the Wade and Siddle partnership which help them stretch the lead and Matthew Wade went on to score his 2nd Test ton. That was enough for Clarke to declare.

Hello everyone to the coverage of day 3 of the third Test. Today is Jane McGrath Day and known as the Pink Day. Australia are in a good position at the moment and would be looking for a big lead. Sri Lanka will try to pick the remaining wickets as quickly as possible.

Herath picked up a couple of wickets whereas Pradeep and Dilshan picked up one each. Sri Lanka need to get the remaining wickets as early as possible tomorrow and shouldn't allow Australia to build on their lead. Join us tomorrow for the day 3 action. Till then, good bye!

Australia have the lead of 48 runs and are in a good position now with still 4 wickets remaining. Wade and Siddle will try their best to extend the lead. Warner and Hughes both were dismissed in their 80s and missed their deserved 100s. Clarke started off his 2013 on a good note as well, scored a 50. Wade is still at the crease and nearing his half-century too.

We are back for the second session! Siddle to start after lunch

Lunch, day 1. Exciting session, goes for both the teams. Bird did the early damage as he removed Karunaratne and then removed Dilshan a couple of overs ago before lunch. Thirimanne would have been his third scalp but the decision was overturned as he was not out. Jayawardena looking good and that's a good sign for the tourists. It's a good track and if these two hang on, can make it to a good total. Clarke would still back his bowlers and they will try to get as many wickets in the second session. Join us in a while.
