Steve Smith fumes at Usman Khawaja for selling him down the river

Nathan Lyon’s five-wicket haul helped Australia skittle out Sri Lanka for 212, before the hosts hit back with three wickets in an eventful session in the opening Test on Wednesday. The tourists reached 98 for three at stumps after Sri Lankan spinner Ramesh Mendis dealt a double whammy, including David Warner’s scalp for 25, on a low turner at the picturesque Galle stadium. Steve Smith, easily Australia’s best player of spin and one who could have churned out a big score in the typical subcontinental conditions, was run out on 6 after a mix-up with opener Usman Khawaja and trudged to the pavilion shaking his head virulently.
