The ball still spun, and the sell-out crowds bayed for Sri Lanka, but Australia have comfortably won the limited-overs series playing scrappy cricket, captain David Warner said.Warner took Australias reins when the ODI series was tied 1-1, but has won each of the five matches since then. His team has been particularly impressive in the T20s, winning the first by 86 runs, and the second by four wickets with 13 balls to spare, despite having lost six wickets for 27 runs.I think the guys showed a lot of determination and fight to overcome the conditions, which were very, very challenging and something that we are not very used to, Warner said. The Test guys had to make an adjustment to make - from the Test match conditions to the one-day conditions.You saw scrappy cricket during the one-day series, where the highest score was 280 here. And then we were scrapping to get to 200. It was good grinding cricket. It was something that were not used to. The encouraging signs mean that weve worked really hard to win both series. Though Australia have fared much better against spin in the limited-overs series, Warner suggested that didnt necessarily make them better players of spin in the Test format. He was, however, pleased with the seam attack, which prospered in conditions not known to favour quick bowlers.We knew once the shine got off the ball, the ball was going to spin consistently, Warner said. In one-day cricket its a bit different - you cant have two in close with slip and a leg slip. Its just not possible. The reverse sweeps, sitting in the crease to pinch the ones and twos, and rotating the strike, are all much easier in this game than in the Tests, where it was very, very tough for us as a batting team. But the way the bowlers conducted themselves and reduced totals after losing the toss consistently, was a fantastic effort.Maxwell had also said good T20 scores in Asia didnt guarantee better Test performances, though he has now starred in consecutive matches as opener. He hit the best innings of the match again, scoring 66 off 29 balls to break the back of the target during the Powerplay. He remains a makeshift opener however, having replaced the injured Aaron Finch in this series.Maxwell is a very good player of spin inside the first six, Warner said. He can chance his arm. He can reverse sweep and sweep. What he did today and the other day was no fluke. Thats exactly what he can do when given the opportunity. We know with the team we have a structure there, and once Aaron Finch comes back in, hell probably have to move down the order and assess what his game plan is again. Weve seen him do it at the top, weve seen him doing it in the middle - theres no excuse.Warner, who has been critical of bowler-friendly nature of the limited-overs pitches in Sri Lanka, said the Khettarama surface was the worst of the lot.The wicket probably wasnt up to scratch in the games. In the last game at Pallekele the wicket was outstanding - I know we played 260, but both teams felt like the wicket was very encouraging. We could hit over the top. There was nice, consistent bounce. Here it was very, very tough. Tyler Bertuzzi Jersey .

There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me. Henrik Zetterberg Jersey . PAUL, Minn. Colin Montgomerie was a relieved man after qualifying for The Open for the first time since 2010 by coming through a 36-hole final qualifier at Gailes Links to secure a spot at Royal Troon.The 53-year-old former Ryder Cup captain and eight-time European Tour Order of Merit winner shot rounds of 66 and 71 to secure a third-place finish, with Swedens Oskar Arvidsson, ranked 1418 in the world, leading the way after carding 64 and 68 for 10 under par.Montgomerie had to wait for his place to be confirmed, as Jack Doherty made a late move up the leaderboard to five under with six holes to play, only for the 34-year-old Scot to bogey the 15th and miss out on the years third major championship.It means the world to me, sure it does, and I look forward to playing and am delighted to do so, Montgomerie said in an interview posted on The Opens official Twitter feed.I had an opportunity at the Senior Open when I was two ahead with eight to go and didnt win, and then of course you think you have blown the thing.But it was nice to come here with 72 players, a high-quality field and to finish third, which is all one has to do.Montgomerie, who qualified for 21 consecutive Opens from 1992-2010 and finished as a runner-up three times, will return to the Ayrshire course where his father was club secretary and he is now an honorary member.Scott Fernandez of Spain also qualified, finishing second after six birdies in a second-round 66 helped him finish second, four shots behind Arvidsson.dddddddddddd.At Woburn, Irishman Paul Dunne booked his place with rounds of 68 and 67 for nine-under par. Dunne, 23, was still an amateur when he shared the lead with Jason Day and Louis Oosthuizen going into the final round of the 2015 Open at St Andrews, only to fall out of contention following a final-day 78.Ryan Evans will also head to Troon after finishing second with two rounds of 68 for eight under, along with fellow Englishman Robert Rock, who beat Aaron Rai in a play-off after both men finished at seven under.Matthew Southgate finished six under par to win at Royal Cinque Ports.Southgate, who had surgery last year after being diagnosed with testicular cancer, finished three shots ahead of Steven Alker and James Heath.Jack Senior qualified from Hillside after coming home in 32 to finish three shots clear. There were five players who tied for second place at two under, which forced a play-off that Paul Howard and Dave Coupland prevailed in.Meanwhile, Graeme McDowell, the 2010 US Open winner, has been added to the field for Troon in July as one of the highest-ranked non-exempt players.
