David Warner takes diving to fire Sri Lanka captain Dimuth Karunaratne
Australia started the Test series with Sri Lanka in an emphatic fashion, knocking out the home team for 212 on the first day of the first Test in Galle. As expected, it is the gyros that rule the rooster, sharing 8 of them. Veteran off spinner Nathan Lyon picked up his 20th year stick in the Leggings Trial Mitchell Swepson chipped with three wicks.
While the players turned bowling well, the Australians played for money on the field, making some nimble catches to beat the Sri Lankans.
Warner is always on the lookout for flying in from the slide and diving all the way for a great handshake. The ball rose into the air after hitting the inside edge of Karunaratne’s cane and then hitting the pad.

It will be interesting to see how the Australian smashers react to the Sri Lankan cranks.
