Dilshan hit a composed century and shared a record stand with all-rounder Angelo Mathews(75), who was out minutes before Tea, as Sri Lanka got to 249 for five at the break against Australia in the first Test of the series.

After starting the day on 87 for four, the duo shared a vital 161-run partnership — which is the highest by a Sri Lankan pair in Australia for any wicket — to save the Lankans the blushes and all but avoided follow on. The hosts, who had gone wicketless in the first session of the day, finally managed to break through viaPeter Siddle (two for 44) as Mathews was trapped leg-before.
