The Sri Lankan cricket team toured Australia from 6 December 2012 to 28 January 2013. The tour consisted of three Tests, five One Day Internationals (ODIs) and two Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is). Tests were played for the Warne–Muralidaran Trophy.[1][2] The Test series was preceded by a match against the Cricket Australia Chairman's XI and Sri Lankans.

Australia won the test series in a 3-0 whitewash, the ODI series was drawn 2-2 and Sri Lanka won the T20I series 2-0.

Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara scored his 10,000th career run in the Melbourne Test, tying the record for the fastest player to achieve the milestone.[3]

Australian cricketer Michael Hussey retired from Test cricket after the final test in Sydney.[4]

Background

Immediately prior to the series, Australia played a home series against South Africa, and lost the series 1-0.[5] At the end of that series, Ricky Ponting, the second highest run scorer in Tests and former Test captain, retired.[6][7]

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka enjoyed some success at a home series against New Zealand, winning an ODI series and drawing a Test series 1-1.[8]

Squads

On 20 November 2012, Sri Lanka announced a 16-man Test squad.[9]

Australia announced a 12-man squad for the first Test in Hobart on 6 December 2012. Phillip Hughes was selected to replace Ricky Ponting, who retired after the preceding South African series.[10] Jackson Bird (to replace the injured Ben Hilfenhaus) and Usman Khawaja (to cover for Michael Clarke) were the additions after to the Australian squad the first Test.[11] Glenn Maxwell was picked to replace vice-captain Shane Watson after he was injured in the Boxing Day Test.[12] Lahiru Thirimanne and Suranga Lakmal were called up for the final test.[13]

Sri Lanka announced a squad for the limited overs series on 2 January 2013,[14] while Australia announced a squad (for the first two ODIs) on 6 January 2013, Mike Hussey was not picked, while Michael Clarke, David Warner, Shane Watson and Matthew Wade were rested.[15] Before the start of the second ODI, Mitchell Starc was replaced by Kane Richardson after complaining of calf soreness.[16] The rested Australian players (excluding Shane Watson) returned to the squad after the 2nd ODI. Jackson Bird was added for cover after the 3rd ODI.

Australia announced a squad for the T20I series on 21 January 2013.[17]

Before the start of the Test, the Blundstone Arena pitch was criticized because it had produced many low scores during Sheffield Shield matches earlier in the season.[18]

Match Report:

Day 1

Australia won the toss and chose to bat. David Warner and Phillip Hughes batted together for most of the morning session, before Warner (57) was run out just before lunch. After lunch, Hughes and Shane Watson put on a partnership, before Sri Lanka dismissed both with a wicket on either side of tea. Michael Clarke and Mike Hussey added 101 runs in the evening session, and at stumps Australia was 4/299.[19]

Day 2

Rain delayed the start of Day 2 by 50 minutes. After the rain cleared, Sri Lanka dismissed Michael Clarke (74). After lunch, about two and half hours of play was lost due to more rain. After the resumption, Hussey (115*) and Matthew Wade (68*) combined for an unbeaten 146 run partnership, before Clarke declared at 5/450. Sri Lanka's experienced top order failed to build a platform, and Sri Lanka finished the day at 4/87, with Tillakaratne Dilshan not out 50.[20]

Day 3

Sri Lanka made a brisk start to Day 3 and Tillakaratne Dilshan made his second century against Australia. Dilshan (147) and Angelo Mathews (75) added 161 runs for the fifth wicket, before both were dismissed either side of tea. Prasanna Jayawardene (40) and Nuwan Kulasekara (23) added useful runs in the lower order, and Sri Lanka was bowled out for 336, a deficit of 114 runs. Peter Siddle was the best of the bowlers, taking 5/54, and fast bowler Ben Hilfenhaus left the field with a side strain, and did not bowl again in the game.[21] Australia survived fourteen overs before stumps, and finished at 0/27.[22]

Day 4

The Australian openers, David Warner (68) and Ed Cowan (56) resumed and made a solid 132 run partnership before a collapse saw Australia fall from 0/132 to 5/181. Michael Clarke (58 retired hurt) and Michael Hussey (31*) took Australia's total to 278, setting a target of 393 for victory. Sri Lanka lost its openers early and at the close of play finished at 2/65.[23]

Day 5

On the last day, the pitch deteriorated with uneven bounce, and Australia was short one bowler due to Ben Hilfenhaus' injury. Attempting to save the Test, Sri Lanka lost only Sangakkara (63) and Mahela Jayawardene (19) before the tea break, but Thilan Samaraweera (49) and Mathews (19), the last two recognised batsmen fell shortly after the tea break; all four of those wickets fell to Peter Siddle (4/50). The last four wickets fell to Mitchell Starc (5/63) over the following hour of play, and Australia won the match by 137 runs inside the final hour of play.[24]

Peter Siddle was named the Man of the match for his match figures of 9/104. There was minor controversy when broadcast footage of the match appeared to show Siddle ball tampering, but the issue was quickly cleared up without any formal complaint against him.[25] Siddle was later cleared by the International Cricket Council (ICC).[26]

Match Report

Day 1

Australia won the toss and chose to bowl, and took wickets at regular intervals throughout the day. Lahiru Thirimanne (91) and captain Mahela Jayawardene (72) both scored half-centuries, but the largest partnership was only 62 runs. Sri Lanka was bowled out at stumps for 294. Jackson Bird took 4/41 for Australia.[30]

Day 2

Australia batted solidly to take its total to 4/271 early in the evening session, with David Warner (85), Phillip Hughes (87) and Michael Clarke (50) all scoring half-centuries.[31] At stumps, Australia was 6/342, with a lead of 48 runs, and with Matthew Wade not out 47*.[32]

Day 3

In the morning session, Matthew Wade (102*) batted with the tail to make the second century of his Test career, and to take Australia to 9/432, at which point Michael Clarke declared with a lead of 138 runs. Rangana Herath (4/95) was the best of Sri Lanka's bowlers in the first innings.

In reply, Dimuth Karunaratne (85) and Mahela Jayawardene (60) added 108 runs for the second wicket, taking Sri Lanka to 1/132; but after Karunaratne was dismissed, Sri Lanka lost 5/46, eventually finishing at 7/225 at stumps, a lead of 87 runs.[33]

Day 4

Dinesh Chandimal (62*) batted with the tail to take Sri Lanka's score to 278, and to set Australia a target of 141; Bird (3/76) and Mitchell Johnson (3/34) each took three wickets for Australia.

In the run chase, David Warner was out first ball, and Hughes (34) was dismissed shortly after lunch to leaving Australia at 2/45. But top-scorer Ed Cowan (36) and Michael Clarke (29) put on a 59 run partnership for the third wicket, which was enough of a platform for Australia to reach the target with five wickets in hand. Herath (3/47) was again Sri Lanka's leading wicket taker for the innings.[34]

The Man of the Match award went to Jackson Bird (4/41 & 3/75).

Lasith Malinga then took three wickets between the 15th and 19th overs to reduce Australia to 9/40; he finished with 3/14 from five overs.

Match Report

Australia won the toss and chose to bat.

Australia managed to bat out the full 50 overs, and 40 runs were added in an unbroken tenth wicket partnership to take the score to 9/222, with Mitchell Starc (52*) providing the most significant lower order contribution.

In the run chase, play was delayed by rain after 20 balls were bowled. Three hours later, the umpires abandoned the match due to a wet outfield.[39]

Match Report

Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to field. The Australian openers made a solid start (0/31) before two quick wickets left them at 2/37 after 10 overs. Phillip Hughes and George Bailey steadied the innings before Bailey (17) was caught and bowled in the 27th over. A 98-run stand followed between Phillip Hughes and David Hussey (34), and late hitting from Australia saw them post a score of 5/247. Hughes finished unbeaten on 138, his second ODI century for the series, and in his career.

Sri Lanka got of to a brisk start (0/57), with Mahela Jayawardene quickly getting to 38, before suffering a top order collapse to 4/77; Xavier Doherty (3/21) took three of these wickets. Angelo Mathews scored 67 runs to help Sri Lanka to 5/187 in the 44th over, but Sri Lanka was eventually bowled out for 215, with Moises Henriques (3/32) and Clint McKay (2/51) taking the wickets of the tail-enders.
