TNI Bureau: Sri Lanka exposed the flaw in Australian batting line-up by making them crawl at 40/9 and then bowling them out for a paltry 74 in the third ODI in Brisbane. Sri Lanka lost six wickets while chasing down the total, but they won it to lead the series 2-1.

 Kulasekara was the pick of the bowlers. He picked up five wickets, while Malinga took three wickets. Mitchell Starc remained unbeaten on 22.

For Australia, Mitchell Johnson took three wickets, while Mitchell Starc took two wickets. Dilshan (22) and Perera (22*) played the anchor role in Sri Lankan innings. Kulasekara was declared ‘Man of the Match’.
