Australia were 157-5 at tea on day one of the first test as Sri Lanka dominated most parts of the game on a spinning track. Electing to bat first, Australia reached 76 for 2 at lunch, but lost 3 wickets for 81 runs in post tea session. Usman Khawaja was the last man to be dismissed -- after which tea was called -- for a nervy 34, bowled by Chanaka Welegedara. Welegedara and Suranga Lakmal have accounted for a wicket each thus far.

    SL have to bat very patiently without throwing away the wickets as in ODIs, by avoiding bouncers, leaving balls going over the stumps as no need to defend, etc..
