120 Australia's previous lowest total in Tests against Sri Lanka, which had come in the first innings in Kandy in 2004. However, on that occasion they had fought back through Adam Gilchrist
and Damien Martyn in their second innings to win the Test. This is Australia's second-lowest total in a Test innings in Asia in the last 50 years. They were dismissed for just 93 runs in their second innings of the Mumbai Test in 2004-05, which is their lowest.
