Gilchrist shines in Hobart

Sri Lanka are continuing to struggle in the second and final Test in Hobart and with all eyes on Muttiah Muraritharan beating Shane Warne's record it was Adam Gilchrist who came with a record of his own.

Gilchrist became the first player to get 100 sixes in Test matches when he hit two consecutive sixes off Muralitharan's bowling in Australia's first innings. That was probably the highlight of the second day as captain Ricky Ponting declared at 542 for five wickets.

Sri Lanka has been very poor with the team all out for 246 in its first innings despite Mahela Jayawardene's century. Credit to Brett Lee for taking four wickets and with no follow-on imposed this time Australia are doing very well at the end of day three with 111 runs for just one wicket.

Murali's tally is now on 704 and lets see what the fourth day will provide.
