Australia was able to savour their highest partnership and individual scores of the summer, to leave supremacy in the first Test against Sri Lanka firmly in the hands of Tim Paine's team.


Australia bowled the Sri Lankans out for a meagre 144 on day one after Dinesh Chandimal had won the toss and chosen to bat first.

Australia scored a mammoth 323 in their first innings, and restricted the Lankans to just 17 runs for the loos of 1 wicket in 6 Overs, and the Lankans trail by 162 runs.

Following a year of tribulation for Australian cricket, the home side are looking for progress in their final Test series before preparing to defend the Ashes in England later in 2019.
