Sri Lanka beat Australia by four wickets in the third One-Day International (ODI) at Brisbane on Friday.

Nuwan Kulasekara and Lasith Malinga ripped apart the Australian batting line-up as an inspired Sri Lanka shot out the hosts for a paltry 74 in 26.4 overs, and chased down the target in 20 overs but not before losing more than half of their side.

Michael Clarke also went on to back Australia's rotation policy after their second consecutive defeat against Sri Lanka.
