120th Over
The next game is on Boxing Day at the MCG, so we'll see you then.
Peter Siddle ended the match with career best match figures of 9/104 turning what looked like a potential draw into a victory for Australia. He thoroughly deserves his man-of-the match award
I think the Australians would have been very disappointed if they hadn't finished off the Sri Lankans on this final day wicket. Some dogged batting from Sangakkara (63) and Samaraweera (49) was not enough to prevent Australia going 1-0 up in the series
Great bowling from Starc at the end there with 5/63 and earlier Siddle with 4/50 sees Australia home by 137 runs

Transpires the last time was Rod Marsh in 1983-84 at the MCG...

Nathan Lyon has removed his cap and will bowl the first over after lunch at the Beach end
The covers were a precautionary measure and they've been removed with the umpires now heading out to the middle
The tractor has come onto the ground towing the covers which doesn't bode well and they're putting the hessian down on the wicket as it's spitting lightly
