Sri Lanka's Kusal Mendis celebrates reaching his century during the third day of the opening Test against Australia in Pallekele on July 28, 2016A brilliant maiden century by Kusal Mendis helped Sri Lanka claw their way back into contention in the first Test against Australia Thursday and open up a 196-run lead before play was suspended early due to bad light. At the close of play on the third day in Pallekele, Sri Lanka had reached 282 for six, with Mendis unbeaten on 169, as the hosts gained the upper hand in a gripping contest against the world's number one Test team. Mendis's knock was the highest score by any Sri Lankan against Australia at home and came after no player from either side had managed to even score a half century in the first innings.

Not exercising and sitting all day is as dangerous as being obese or smoking, they found.
