Sri Lanka on Wednesday defeated Australia by 163 runs in the final Test in Colombo to complete a 3-0 sweep in the three-match series. India, which was placed second on the ranking list ahead of the series, moved to the top spot.

Chasing 324 for victory, Australia were all out for 160, half-an-hour before the tea break, succumbing to their third successive defeat against the hosts.

David Warner top-scored for Australia with a fluent 68. Rangana Herath (7/64) was the pick of the Sri Lankan bowlers, finishing with a 13-wicket match haul.

The teams now face off in a five-match one-day series beginning on Sunday in Colombo.
