Sri Lanka all out for 215 against Australia

CANBERRA, Feb 3, 2019 (BSS/AFP) – Sri Lanka were dismissed for 215 in the
second Test against Australia on Sunday, trailing by 319 runs with Mitchell
Starc taking five wickets as the hosts close in on a 2-0 series win.

They began the day at 123 for three on what appeared to be a perfect
batting track in reply to Australia’s 534 for five declared.

But they offered little real resistence with Dimuth Karunaratne, who
returned Sunday after being cleared of concussion following a bouncer hit,
top-scoring with 59.

Kusal Perera retired hurt on 29 and took no further part.

Starc, who has been under pressure after a lean spell, was the best of the
bowlers with 5-54.
