Sri Lankan legend Tillakaratne Dilshan quit international cricket following the second T20 against Australia

In what was to be Tillakaratne Dilshan's final fling with international cricket, Sri Lanka would have hoped to give him a fond farewell. But, all great stories do not have fairy tale endings. And so it was to be with Dilshan

And so here we are. After nearly 17 years since his international debut in 1999, Sri Lankan legend Tillakaratne Dilshan will quit the game after the second T20 at Colombo

Aussie big hitter Glenn Maxwell smashed a brilliant unbeaten 145 from 65 balls in the first T20 against Sri Lanka at Pallekele on Tuesday

Having been thrashed 3-0 in the Tests, Australia recovered brilliantly to club Sri Lanka 4-1 in the one-day series. And, while victory in the Tests cannot mask Aussies' Test failures, the visitors would be pleased to have come up with such an amazing effort in the shorter format of the game.

Having already lost the series, Sri Lanka would have been looking to claim a consolation win in the final ODI at Pallekele on Sunday. But, it wasn't to be the case as Australia once again proved too good for the hosts.

With Australia 3-1 ahead in the five match one-day series, the visitors will be keen to carry on to finish the series on a winning note as well

Going 2-1 up into the fourth ODI, Australia were the favourites to clinch the match, and it with it the series, as they had the momentum going their way. And, the Aussies did not let things slip, coming up with a brutal all-round showing to leave the hosts gasping for breath.
