49th Over
Australia winning by 32 runs. Thanks for reading, goodnight.
Phil Hughes for the brilliant century today has been named player of the match. Nuwan Kulasekara collects the player of the series award for his outstanding performances earlier in the series.
And so a victory to the homeside, that tied the series at 2-all following the washout the other night. The Sri Lankans, whilst disappointed with tonight, will be more than happy with the eventual outcome which could easily have been a 3-1 victory
