SL vs AUS 1st Test, Day 2 Live Updates: Cameron Green and Alex Carey put on a partnership of over 50 runs  to take Australia to 233/5 at Tea on Day 2 of the first Test against Sri Lanka. They have gone past Sri Lanka’s first innings total of 212. Earlier, Jeffrey Vandersay’s first Test wicket gave Sri Lanka a massive breakthrough as it saw Usman Khawaja fall for 71, leaving Australia reeling at 5 wickets down. The play started late on Day 2, with the first session wiped out due to heavy rains. Session times are 1:45 to 3:45 and 4:05 to 6:00, with Tea to be taken between 3:45 and 4:05. Australia were 98/3 at the start of Day 2 after bowling the hosts out for 212. Nathan Lyon’s 20th 5-wicket haul helped Australia bowl Sri Lanka out for a modest total despite Niroshan Dickwella’s counter-attacking 58. The visitors then began strongly with the bat, but soon lost opener David Warner for 25 off 24 to Ramesh Mendis. Mendis then had his second wicket when he dismissed Marnus Labuschagne for 13. Sri Lanka got another breakthrough when a mix-up resulted in Steve Smith being run-out for 6. Usman Khawaja, however, has been steady for Australia, and was batting on 47 at Stumps on Day 1. Travis Head was the other batter at the crease. (LIVE SCORECARD)
