Dinesh Chandimal slammed an undefeated 206, his maiden double ton and best Test score, as Sri Lanka gave themselves a hefty lead of 190 before debutant spinner Prabath Jayasuriya ripped apart Australia in the second dig, handing the hosts a special series-equaling victory.
Jayasuriya ended the match with twelve scalps after Australia lost 9 wickets in the final session, bringing the match to a speedy end. Australia's reply had started on a decent note before Ramesh Mendis trapped David Warner in front minutes before the Tea break, after which the Australian innings went completely south.
