Hughes ton helps Aus to level series

Hobart: Moises Henriques and Xavier Doherty took three wickets each to capitalise on Phil Hughes' unbeaten century on Wednesday as Australia beat Sri Lanka by 32 runs and share the five-match limited-overs series 2-2.

Despite an aggressive 38 off 39 balls by Mahela Jayawardene and a defiant 67 from Angelo Mathews, Sri Lanka could manage just 215 in their chase of Australia's 247 and just a second series win on Australian soil.

Spinner Doherty (3 for 21) sparked something of a top-order collapse with the dismissal of Jayawardene in the seventh over, while allrounder Henriques (3 for 32) closed down the tailend.
