Australia beat Sri Lanka by 32 runs to even ODI series

Hobart, Australia: Moises Henriques and Xavier Doherty took three wickets each to capitalize on Phil Hughes’ unbeaten century on January 23 as Australia beat Sri Lanka by 32 runs and share the five-match limited-overs series 2-2.

Despite an aggressive 38 off 39 balls by Mahela Jayawardene and a defiant half century from Angelo Mathews, Sri Lanka could manage just 215 in its chase of Australia’s 247 and just a second series win on Australian soil.

After Australia won the first game of the series, Sri Lanka took a 2-1 lead before the fourth match in Sydney was washed out on January 20.
