Skipper of the Sri Lanka cricket team Mahela Jayawardhna states that his team accepts responsibility for the defeat suffered at the hands of Australia during the second test between both nations.

Mahela's conceded this fact while addressing the press in Melbourne, subsequent to the day's play.

Australia battered and humiliated Sri Lanka by an inning and 201 runs to win the series in the second Melbourne Test midway through the third day.

Sri Lanka, trailing by 304 runs on the first innings, surrendered for just 103 for seven off 24.2 overs with Kumar Sangakkara retiring hurt and Prasanna Jayawardene and Chanaka Welegedara unable to bat because of injuries.

Paceman Mitchell Johnson was the dominant player with six wickets and an unbeaten 92 to be named man-of-the-match.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka will be without batsman Kumar Sangakkara for the remainder of their tour of Australia, after scans revealed a fracture to his left hand, where he was hit by a Mitchell Johnson bouncer during the Boxing Day Test.
