Australia is hoping for significantly better fortunes on day three of the second Test against Sri Lanka after a frustrating second day in Galle.
Sri Lanka returned to the crease and is 3-204, trailing Australia by 160, with Angelo Mathews (14) and Dinesh Chandimal (11) at the crease.
Nathan Lyon nearly dismissed Kusal Mendis (85) with just the fourth ball of the day, but the umpire’s not out decision was upheld by a mere millimetre, with ball-tracking showing that just under half of the ball would have hit the top of the stumps.
But the disappointment didn’t last long — the following over another big-spinning off-break from Lyon struck Mendis in front again, and this time he was gone.
