Sri Lankans create history. And move up to 6th place in the rankings.

Sri Lanka beat Australia by 163 runs in the final test in Colombo short while ago to complete a 3-0 sweep in the three-match series.

Chasing 324 for victory, Australia were all out for 160 half-an-hour before the tea break, succumbing to their third successive defeat against the hosts.

David Warner top-scored for Australia with a fluent 68.

Rangana Herath (7-64) was the pick of the Sri Lankan bowlers, finishing with a 13-wicket match haul.

The teams face off in a five-match one-day series beginning on Sunday in Colombo.
