Match Notes

  • Kasprowicz takes seven as Australia romp to 149-run win

    Michael Kasprowicz produced a stunning spell of medium-fast bowling - 7 for 39 from 17.4 overs - to lead Australia to an emphatic 149-run victory over Sri Lanka at the Marrara Cricket Ground in Darwin

  • Gilchrist and Lehmann set Sri Lanka stiff target after McGrath shines

    Darren Lehmann and Adam Gilchrist reeled off characteristically cavalier 50s in trying conditions after Glenn McGrath had skittled the Sri Lankans, as Australia took charge of the opening Test against Sri Lanka at the Marrara Oval in Darwin

  • Jayasuriya the key, says McGrath

    Australia's back-to-form fast bowler Glenn McGrath has said that he will be targeting Sanath Jayasuriya's wicket when Sri Lanka begin their chase for 312 on the third day of the first Test at the Marrara Oval tomorrow

  • 'We can knock the Australians over' - Vaas

    Chaminda Vaas, who took 5 for 31 on the opening day of the first Test at the Marrara Oval, has said that Sri Lanka were confident they could bowl Australia out, even without Muttiah Muralitharan in the squad
