There are reports(?) that he is still alive after losing his heartbeat for 6 minutes.

Now it is confirmed he has passed away. RIP. That brief recovery was indeed very brief.

The 4th test turning out to be another corker.

It's been a great series for the most part. Sadly the Windies couldn't capitalise on their good position against India.

Tune in on white line wireless now - were calling the Sri Lanka game

Sri Lanka were 5/26 - now they are 5/213 and de Silva has his maiden hundred. Pretty brilliant recovery and this sort of total looks adequate enough for these pitches.

Old mate Younis Khan with another cracking double hundred. Pakistan leading by 148 now.

Very, very awesome. He doesn't quite get his dues, which is odd, considering he has nearly 10,000 runs at nearly 54, only Kallis and Sangakkara are better in that club.

I think he's the sort of player who'll be touted as a real cricketing legend 5 years after he retires. I mean, the stats speak for themselves.

Now it's a century for Chandimal. Sri Lanka going at another good total on this pitch.

An hour ago we 1/100. Half an hour before that 0/77. Now 6/125 Thoroughly deserved victory by Sri Lanka, and why the fuck we picked Moises Henriques in this Test will be studied for centuries.

Sri Lanka set 324 to win early on the last day. Australia all the way from 1 for 100 to 6 for 130 ... this test series absolutely loves abrupt batting collapses.

All over, all out for 160. Only Australia's fifth series whitewash loss in their history. Old Mate Herath with 7/64 in the innings and 13 for the match.

Pretty remarkable series result all things considered.
