Australia skipper George Bailey believes his team did not assess the Adelaide wicket well enough before the start of play.
Sri Lanka produced a brilliant performance on Sunday to beat Australia by eight wickets in the second One-Day International (ODI) at Adelaide.
Thirimanne scored an unbeaten century to guide Sri Lanka to its series levelling victory.
Earlier, Sri Lanka produced an inspired bowling performance to bundle out Australia for a modest 170.
Electing to field, Sri Lanka put tremendous pressure on the young Australian batting line-up and didn’t allow any easy runs.
