Sri Lanka's Mathews fit for Sunday's series decider

Sri Lanka's Mathews fit for Sunday's series decider

Sharma, who scored a record-setting third career double century in the previous match, went back to the pavilion after hitting a huge six.

Smith's partnership of 301 runs for the fifth wicket with Mitchell Marsh proved to be decisive as Australia claimed 259 run first innings lead while Josh Hazlewood claimed a five-fer in the final innings to bowl out the visitors for 218 on the final day to reclaim the Urn following wins in all the three games of the series so far.

WICKET! Kuldeep Yadav has done the trick again, as he removes Niroshan Dickwella courtesy a catch by Shreyas Iyer.

The three-match ODI series is now locked at 1-1 after Sri Lanka won the opener in Dharamsala and then the hosts rode on skipper Rohit Sharma's historic third ODI double ton to clinch the second tie.

He has had incredible 2017 and thanks to his ton in the third ODI against Sri Lanka, he overtook South African Quinton de Kock in the list of most ODI runs in the calendar year of 2017. Iyer attacked every ball and every bowler, and while that made for entertaining cricket, it was also a risky approach - he was fortunate to be dropped by Mathews at slips off Pathirana when he was on just 25. Dinesh Karthik joined Dhawan and the two went about chasing down the little that remained of the target.

San Francisco Sheriff's Department says they will "miss his positive vision". Breed was also expected to seek the office. No other details have been released.

Akila Dananjaya and Thisara Perera were the only wicket-takers for the visiting side while all the other bowlers looked nearly ineffective in front of an upbeat Indian batting. Both of them took three wickets each. Upul Tharanga 95 off 82 balls. He, however, missed a deserving hundred due to some exceptional glove work by MS Dhoni off the bowling of Kuldeep Yadav. He scored 17 runs off 28 balls with the help of 2 boundaries.

Indian ace Kohli leads the charts with 1,460 runs in 26 matches while Sharma has 1,286 runs in 21 matches.

Sadeera Samarawickrama gave a good company to Thranga at the crease as the due stitched together a 121-run partnership for the second wicket, after Danushka Gunathilaka (13 off 12, 2 fours) departed early.

Mathews' return to form must be heartening news for them as is the fact that he is bowling some overs, and with a degree of success too. He added 17 runs off 51 deliveries.

Earlier in his innings, he became the second fastest and Sixth overall to score 4000 one day internationals runs in his 94th innings of his ODI career. He also bowled three maidens in his 10 overs.
