Sri Lanka beat Australia by eight wickets in the second One-Day International on Sunday at Adelaide.

Lahiru 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.

Brad Haddin was the top run-getter for the hosts, as the other Australian batsmen struggled against the Sri Lankan bowling attack.

Haddin's half-century was the only bright spot for the Aussies. The comeback wicketkeeper batsman struck four boundaries and a six to score 50 off 67 balls.

Haddin added 57 runs for the seventh wicket with Ben Cutting, which was Australia's highest partnership.
