First one-day international, Melbourne:
Sri Lanka 243-9 (44.2 ovs) beat Australia 239 (50 ovs) by one wicket
All-rounder Mathews led Sri Lanka to a superb win at the MCG
A record ninth-wicket partnership between Angelo Mathews and Lasith Malinga took Sri Lanka from the brink of defeat to victory against Australia.
Australia made 239 and had Sri Lanka rattled at 107-8, with Xavier Doherty taking four wickets and a run-out.
But then Mathews (77 not out) and Malinga (56) put on 132 before Muttiah Muralitharan hit the winning run.
Australia will play Sri Lanka in two more one-dayers before taking on England in the five-Test Ashes series.
Mathews and Malinga's ninth-wicket stand was a record in one-day international cricket, beating the previous mark of 126 set by India pair Kapil Dev and Syed Kirmani in 1983 against Zimbabwe.
