Player Of The Match
- Di Venuto/ME Waugh 156 partnership - new Australian ODI 1st wicket record at Adelaide (prev. 1200, TM Moody & GR Marsh v Sri Lanka, World Cup 1991-92).
- Attendance: 30,049.
Australia's international tri-series came out of financial necessity and the need to appease a broadcaster
The tri-series showed that the format can work, that Virat Kohli is India's future, and that Mahela Jayawardene is one of the game's best captains
Sri Lanka's top-order batsmen made it a memorable CB Series for the side, even though they lost in the finals
From Brisbane to Sydney and back again. Must be the CB Series then
Australia and Sri Lanka, who fought out a closely contested best-of-three finals, were streets ahead of India on the batting and bowling fronts
