Toyota Memorable Moment - Wade's 100

UPDATED 07 January, 2013 5:52PM AEST | by Cricket Australia 1

An entertaining and solid innings from Matthew Wade highlighted day three of the Vodafone Pink Test.

Wade's 102 not out helped put Australia on top on what was a special day in cricket. 

The SCG turned pink for Jane McGrath Day, with plenty of people supporting the McGrath Foundation and the fight against breast cancer. 

Other memorable moments included a resilient partnership from Dimuth Karunaratne and Mahela Jayawardene. Karunaratne scored his first decent score of the summer with 85, whilst Jayawardene put together another solid innings of 60 to give Sri Lanka some hope of salvaging the match. 

But the momentum swung in the final session, with Australia breaking the partnership. The Aussies then got quick wickets, highlighted by another classic catch in the deep from the retiring Mike Hussey. 

However, the day three Toyota Memorable Moment belonged to Wade, who scored his second Test century and first on Australian soil.
