Sri Lanka skipper Mahela Jayawardene believes Sri Lankan bowlers didn't create enough pressure on Phil Hughes and George Bailey and allowed them to get away with the game.

Sri Lanka lost the first One-Day International against Australia at Melbourne on Friday to trail the series 0-1. 

Sri Lanka started as the favourites, having experienced players over a young and new Australian team. However, they were unable to restrict the hosts in the first innings as the Australians put up a target of 306 for the visitors.
