  1. Well folks, that's it for the third Test from Sydney. A solid five-wicket win to Australia.
    The Sri Lankans made Australia work hard for the win, a much better performance than in Melbourne.
    A great way to end the day, with Michael Hussey in the middle.
    Now we look forward to the one-day series and T20s against the Sri Lankans and West Indies.
    Thanks for joining us on Fox Sports, it's been a great summer of cricket.

  12. 1545: We didn't think it would happen at the start of the day and now Hussey has walked to the crease at the SCG for the second time today. Good luck champion.
  13. There's more than a few messages out there for the retiring Michael Hussey and Bill Lawry.
    Two Australian legends.
