Skipper Angelo Mathews led from the front with his all-round showing to help Sri Lanka register a comprehensive 82-run win against Australia in the second one-day international to level the series at 1-1 in Colombo.

Australia, who were chasing a record 289 for victory at R Premadasa Stadium, were bowled out for 206 in 47.2 overs with Matthew Wade top-scoring with 76 runs.

Left-arm spinner Amila Aponso claimed four wickets while medium-pacer Thisara Perera took three wickets to choke the Australian run chase.

But it was man of the match Mathews' two wickets and a 57 with the bat that made Sri Lanka register their biggest win against Australia in terms of runs.
