After losing the first Test by an innings at Perth yesterday, Sri Lanka submitted a two-page report to the match referee outlining their view of the incident on Saturday which led to them being found guilty of ball- tampering. On the field, Shane Warne took three wickets, taking his total to 201 in just 42 Tests.
