Hughes's brilliant hundred helps Australia level Series 2-2

Cricket sports batting

There is no doubt that Hughes is one of the best talent acquired by the Aussies especially after the retirement of Hussey,Hayden and Ricky Ponting.He proved his point today once again making a huge hundred making sure that he took the Aussies to a respectable total.Sri Lanka on the other hand never looked like challenging the total and ended up on the loosing side.The Sri Lankan's will be a little disappointed for not winning the series as their last match was washed out which looked like a target they could have easily achieved.Leaving all things in the past the series however has ended with both Australia and Sri Lanka winning two matches each to level the series.

Highlights of the match:

Sri Lanka Bowling & Batting::

Tillakaratne Dilshan - Bowling - 1 Wicket for 22 Runs

Australia Batting & Bowling:
