Sri Lanka vs Australia

Retiring champion Mike Hussey fittingly guided Australia to a five-wicket win over Sri Lanka, completing a sweep of the three-test series. Set 141 to win at the Sydney Cricket Ground, Australia reached that target for the loss of five wickets. Hussey’s 27 not out delighted the crowd in his farewell appearance but it was Mitchell Johnson who hit his only run to clinch the win.

Sri Lanka spinners Rangana Herath and Tillakaratne Dilshan made Australia work hard to reach the target but the outcome was never in genuine doubt despite wickets falling regularly. 
Sri Lanka was left to rue its lack of runs in both innings and still has not won a test in Australia in 14 attempts. 
A tally of 10,505 fans turned out for Hussey’s final day heroics, taking the total for the Sydney Test to nearly 88,000.
