Australia stormed into the World Cup quarter-finals with a 64-run victory over Sri Lanka, fired by a spectacular maiden one-day international century from Glenn Maxwell at the Sydney Cricket Ground today.


Sri Lanka signalled that they too are in fine form for the knockout stages by having a good crack at what would have been a record run chase, with Kumar Sangakkara becoming the first man to score three successive centuries at a World Cup.


They were always up against it after Maxwell's 53-ball 102 had helped Australia to 376-9; however they were finally dismissed for 312 after 46.2 overs.


Meanwhile, Kumar Sangakkara has become only the second batsman after Sachin Tendulkar, to score 14,000 one-day international runs when he reached the landmark against Australia in the World Cup Pool A match in Sydney today. (AFP)

    What team has a "bowling attack" without bowlers like Sri Lanka. Any batsmen will look attacking with such poor bowling. Tissera Perera cannot bowl or bat. His inconsistency does not make him an all rounder. The selector like Sanath should be FIRED first, followed by Atta-Pattu who cannot coach.
