Mike Hussey scored his 19th Test Century in a valuable knock to help Australia reach 450 runs.
The day belonged to Australia, with Matthew Wade chipping in with 68 valuable runs, adding to Phil Hughes' fighting 86 before an aggressive declaration from skipper Michael Clarke once we reached 450 to put the pressure back on Sri Lanka. Our bowlers then took 4-87 before stumps, with Peter Siddle claiming the dangerous wicket of Kumar Sangakkara. But the highlight of the day for us was Hussey's 19th Test ton as he steered the Aussies to a big score. What was the highlight of the day for you?
