Sri Lanka vs  Australia, 2nd Test Day 2 Live Score Updates: Steve Smith along with Alex Carey will look to stay at the crease for a long haul to help Australia post a big first innings total on Day 2 of the ongoing second Test against Sri Lanka at Galle International Stadium. Smith and Marnus Labuschagne hit brilliant centuries as Australia reached 298 for five at stumps on Day 1. Smith remained unbeaten on 109 while Labuschagne was dismissed on 104 by Sri Lanka’s star on the Prabath Jayasuriya, who also dismissed Travis Head and Alex Carey to end the day with three wickets to his name. Earlier after losing David Warner early, Usman Khawaja and Marnus Labuschagne revived Australia’s innings but on the cusp of lunch break, Australia lost the wicket of Khawaja. Earlier, Australia captain Pat Cummins won the toss and opted to bat in the second Test of the two-match series. (LIVE SCORECARD)
