Slightly more predictable in Brisbane.

Had the feel of one of those backyard games where, after been badly smacked around by Big Brother, Middle Brother takes revenge on Little Brother but Mum is watching so it's not too brutal.

SL won the toss and batted, or something that approximated batting.

Sri Lanka 144 all out (Dickwella 64, Cummins 4-39, Richardson 3-26)
Stumps: Australia 72 for 2 (Harris 40*, Lyon 0*)

SL were poor apart from their keeper batting like he was in a T20 (including a ramp for 6 off Starc). His batting wagon wheel looked classical, if turned 180 degrees. They lost 3-58 in the first session and 5-64 in the second.

They were fortunate enough that their inning concluded in time to give the locals almost all the time under lights where the SL bowlers had the ball darting about nicely.

Harris batted through a period where he looked like he'd totally lost the plot, playing and missing, hitting ones he was trying to leave, but survived which will serve him well in the future.
