Former Sri Lanka captain Sanath Jayasuriya hailed the team for their brilliant performance and their series win over Australia. 

Sri Lanka won three of the four games played so far to take an unassailable 3-1 lead. The hosts defeated the mighty Australians in a home ODI series for the first time in 30 years.

"Congratulations to the victorious Sri Lankan team for a fantastic series victory against the Aussi's at home after 30 years! A true team effort. Well done boys! Feeling so emotional," Jayasuriya tweeted.

Former Sri Lanka player Russel Arnold also took to Twitter to celebrate the win.

"Well done @OfficialSLC Superb team effort and finding ways to win .. that's the way lads #SLvaus Soo enjoyable to watch .. the walk to the game for many was thoroughly worth it," Arnold tweeted.

Sri Lanka’s previous ODI series win over Australia at home came in September 1992, when they defeated their opponents 2-1 in a three-match series.
