A video of the dismissial of Sri Lanka batsman Kumar Sangakkara on the fifth day of the opening Test against Australia at Hobart.

Sangakkara fell after scoring a fluent 63, trapped in front of the wickets by Peter Siddle.

Meanwhile, Australia  took complete control of the first Test with the wicket of Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene, in a bid to push for a big win in the first Test in Hobart on Tuesday.

The Australians set out on the final day needing eight wickets to go one up in the three-Test series while the Sri Lankans required the more improbable 328 runs to beat the home side on a wearing Bellerive pitch, AFP reported.

Jayawardene's partnership with ICC cricketer of the year Kumar Sangakkara was key for the tourists to bat out the final day for a draw, but his dismissal tilted the odds Australia's way.

At lunch, Sri Lanka were 144 for three and still needing a further 249 runs for victory with Sangakkara on 58 off 206 balls and Thilan Samaraweera not out on 17.
