Sri Lanka 281 (Mendis 86, Mathews 54, Starc 5-44) and 237 (D Perera 64, Starc 6-50) beat Australia 106 (Warner 42, D Perera 4-29, Herath 4-35) and 183 (Warner 41, D Perera 6-70) by 229 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsRemember the way this series began? Angelo Mathews won the toss and chose to bat in Pallekele, and his men were bundled out for 117. Buy Air Max 95 Australia . They failed even to survive 35 overs. Eight days of cricket later, the series has been decided, and one of these two teams has been completely humiliated. And its not Sri Lanka. What a turnaround it has been. Mathews will lift the Warne-Muralitharan Trophy, and Sri Lanka could hardly have won it more comprehensively.In Pallekele, rain and bad light conspired to drag the first Test into its fifth day, but in Galle Australia could not even reach the scheduled halfway point of the match. In less than two and a half days, they had lost an eighth consecutive Test in Asia. The No.1 team in the world had been beaten - crushed, in fact - by No.7. Sri Lankas spinners have embarrassed Australias batsmen this series, and in Galle it was Dilruwan Perera who starred.Perera picked up 6 for 70 in Australias second innings of 183 and became the first Sri Lankan to take 10 wickets and score a half-century in the same Test. Only 25 times in all of Test history has a player achieved that remarkable feat. Along the way, he also became the fastest Sri Lankan to reach the mark of 50 Test wickets, reaching the milestone in this his 11th Test. Perera and Rangana Herath proved unreadable to the Australians, their sliders as dangerous as their spinners.The statistics of note did not end there. Only once in the past 87 years had Australia survived for fewer balls in a Test match they had lost: in Galle they lasted for 501 deliveries across the match, two more than the 499 they faced against West Indies in Port-of-Spain in 1995. It was thus their second-worst performance in that regard since the advent of covered pitches. And for the first time in 19 years, no Australian scored a fifty in a Test.The Sri Lankans were understandably jubilant when the result was confirmed, the final wicket coming from a brilliant run-out effected by Kusal Mendis at bat-pad. Peter Nevill, who had fought off the inevitable for 38 balls, flicked Herath off his pads and took a couple of steps out of his crease, but with remarkable reflexes Mendis managed to get the ball back onto the stumps to find Nevill short.It meant a 229-run win for Sri Lanka and an unassailable 2-0 series lead heading into the third and final Test in Colombo. The result was effectively certain when both teams arrived at the ground on the third morning, the only questions being the margin and the time that Sri Lanka would take to run through Australias final seven wickets. Australia started the day at 25 for 3, and before drinks in the second session they were bowled out for 183.David Warner was the first to depart, lbw to Perera when he missed a ball that failed to turn as he expected. Given out on field, Warner asked for a review but received no satisfaction, with replays showing the ball would have hit the leg stump. Steven Smith then departed on 30, caught at bat-pad off Perera, a not-out decision on-field overturned on review.It has been a match full of referrals, and Mathews has proven himself a five-star reviewer. Perhaps his best came when Richard Kettleborough turned down an appeal for lbw against Mitchell Marsh, who thrust his pad well outside off against Lakshan Sandakan. Marsh was not playing a shot, so being struck outside the line did not matter, and Sandakans big turn was enough to have the ball hitting the stumps.Marsh was out for 18, and the last of Australias specialist batsmen followed not far behind. Adam Voges had employed the reverse sweep liberally throughout his innings, without ever quite looking like he had it perfected, and on 28 the shot brought him undone when he failed to get bat on ball and was bowled by Perera. Sri Lanka were three wickets from triumph at lunch.After the break, it was only a matter of time. Mitchell Starc whacked a six and three fours before he was bowled by Herath trying another big shot, and Josh Hazlewood prodded a return catch to Perera to complete the spinners ten-wicket game. Then came the run-out, the celebrations, the glory. Sri Lanka had done it. A new generation had not only won the series but dominated it. And whod have guessed that after day one in Pallekele? Air Max 270 Mens Black . Carey Price didnt, but he still came out on top against one of his rivals for the No. 1 job at the Sochi Games. The Anahim Lake, B.C., native was stellar in making 39 saves in his home province and Lars Eller got credit for a bizarre short-handed winner as the Canadiens defeated the Canucks 4-1. Air Max 97 For Sale Australia .Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner. . -- On the field, it was business as usual for Jameis Winston and No. RIO NEGRO, Colombia -- Victims of this weeks tragic air crash in the Andes were flown home Friday as Bolivias president called for drastic measures against aviation officials who signed off on a flight plan that experts and even one of the charter airlines executives said should never have been attempted because of a possible fuel shortage.The move by President Evo Morales came after evidence emerged that the pilot reported the plane was out of fuel minutes before it slammed into a muddy mountainside, killing all but six of the 77 people on board. Among the dead were players and coaches from a small-town Brazilian soccer team that was headed to the finals of one of South Americas most prestigious tournaments after a fairy-tale season that had captivated their soccer-crazed nation.As an honor guard played taps early Friday, members of Colombias military loaded five Bolivian crew members who died in the crash onto a cargo plane for the trip back home.Later in the day, caskets containing the remains of 50 Brazilian victims, many draped with sheets printed with their teams green and white logo, began the journey to the Chapecoense clubs hometown in southern Brazil. Fourteen Brazilian journalists traveling with the team and two passengers from other South American nations were being sent home on separate flights.Bolivian flight crew member Erwin Tumiri became the first of the survivors to be released from the hospital. Before leaving, he recorded a cellphone message thanking his rescuers and the medical staff who treated him.The farewells came as details surfaced of possible negligence and unsettling family ties between the Bolivian-based charter company LaMia and the countrys aviation agency, which approved the ill-fated flight Monday between Santa Cruz, Bolivia, and Medellin, Colombia, even though it exceeded the short-haul jets maximum flying range.Attention was focused on a former Bolivian air force general, Gustavo Vargas, who is one of LaMias owners and whose son headed the office responsible for licensing aircraft in Bolivias civil aviation agency. As part of the investigation, the younger Vargas was suspended Thursday along with several other high-ranking aviation officials. The airline, whose only operable aircraft was the British Aerospace 146 Avro RJ85 that crashed, was also grounded.Morales said Friday that the elder Vargas served as his pilot in 2006. But he said that he had no knowledge of the airlines existence and called for a profound investigation to explain whether Vargas son, also named Gustavo Vargas, favored the airline, which has transported the national teams of Argentina and Brazil, as well as many other top-flight South American clubs.One of the suspended officials, Marcelo Chavez, the regional director of the agency that controls air traffic in Bolivia, told The Associated Press that an inspector pointed out irregularities in the airlines flight plan, includinng the fact that the aircrafts fuel capacity was barely enough to fly directly to Medellin. Nike Air Vapormax Mens Australia. Chavez said the airline decided to go ahead with the flight anyway and air traffic controllers had no authority to prevent them.On Thursday, the airlines operations director told an Argentine radio network that he also had disapproved of the flight plan. I wouldnt have flown direct, said the executive, Marco Rocha.At LaMias main office in Santa Cruz, a secretary said the airline had yet to be notified of any sanctions. A black rose was left outside the door.A recording of conversations between a pilot of the doomed flight and air traffic controllers, as well as the account of a surviving flight attendant, indicated the plane ran out of fuel before crashing just a few miles from Medellins international airport.In the flights final minutes, pilot Miguel Quiroga, who co-owned the airline with Vargas, could be heard requesting permission to land because of fuel problems, although at first he didnt make a formal distress call. He was told another plane with mechanical problems had priority to land at the airports single runway and was instructed to wait seven minutes.As the jetliner circled, the pilot grew more desperate. Complete electrical failure, without fuel, he said. By then the controller had gauged the seriousness of the situation and told the other plane to abandon its approach to make way for the charter jet. But it was too late.In Brazil, grieving fans and relatives in the soccer teams hometown of Chapeco prepared for the sad return of so many whose lives were cut short by the crash, hanging origami figures in the clubs colors on the fence of the soccer stadium, where a memorial service was to be held Saturday.Marissol Dias, who volunteers for the charity that organized the placing of the origami figures in the shape of a crane -- considered to be a symbol of peace -- said she was overwhelmed by the communitys response. Some 100,000 people were expected at the stadium -- about half of the citys population.This comes from a Japanese legend that says if you make 1,000 of these, a wish will be granted, she said. Our community did much more than we asked.Elsewhere, gravediggers prepared the ground for burial of some of the victims. At the Jardim do Eden cemetery, the caretaker said he was used to the business of death, but this felt different.We bury two people every day. Ive done this job for a long time, but this is different, said Dirceu Correa. It is a tragedy for the families, for the club, and also for us, because we are a part of the city.---Valdez reported from La Paz, Bolivia. Associated Press writers Hannah Dreier in Caracas, Venezuela; Cesar Garcia in Bogota, Colombia, and Mauricio Savarese in Chapeco, Brazil, contributed to this report.
