Sri Lanka level one day series in Australia

8:59 am on 14 January 2013

Sri Lanka's levelled the five match one day cricket series against Australia, with a convincing eight wicket win in Adelaide.

Sri Lanka put the hosts in to bat after rain delayed the start at the Adelaide Oval and the bowlers capitalised on cloud cover and moisture in the pitch to restrict Australia to 170 all out.

With Lahiru Thirimanne scoring his first one-day century in making 102 not out, Sri Lanka reached their target for the loss of just two wickets and with ten overs to spare.

Game three is in Brisbane on Friday.
