Australia was reduced to 28/3 and it required a wonderful knock from Burns and Travis Head to restore the advantage for Tim Paine’s side. Burns was dropped on 34 by Dhananjaya de Silva off Dilruwan Perera and he made most of the chance. Heading into the lunch session, Australia made a tremendous fightback and Burns got good support from Head. The right-hander struck three fours in one over of Vishwa Fernando and he neared the milestone. Burns reached his century off Kasun Rajitha and the celebrations summed up the joy.Head also made great progress and he benefited from Dilruwan Perera’s drop off his own bowling and he made the bowler pay by slamming his maiden century with a drive through mid-off for a boundary. The partnership between Head and Burns decimated Sri Lanka and the duo notched up the 300-run partnership, the first time that an Australian batting partnership had registered a triple century stand ever since Steve Smith and Mitchell Marsh in the Perth Test against England.Sri Lanka continued to drop catches and concede easy runs but the 308-run stand was broken when Head missed a flick and was trapped in front by Fernando for 161.
