Australia edged out Sri Lanka by two wickets to spoil Tillakaratne Dilshan’s one-day farewell and go 2-1 up in the five-match series yesterday.
Opting to bat first, Sri Lanka were all out for 226 with four balls remaining, a total built around Dinesh Chandimal’s gutsy 102.
Dilshan’s fluent 42 in his one-day swansong was the second highest score and he will play the two T20 matches against Australia next month before retiring from international cricket.
Australia wobbled early in their reply but George Bailey, who scored 70, featured as the tourists chased down the target with four overs to spare.
Meanwhile, fans of the retiring cricketer went an extra mile to watch him perform. See the photographs below..
