Ponting & Symonds Partnership: 3-10 to record 368 (SCG)

After losing the first final against Sri Lanka at Adelaide Australia needed to win at the SCG to force a third and decisive final.

Chaminda Vaas took three quick wickets to dismantle the Australian top order and leave them at 3-10.

Andrew Symonds joined captain Ricky Ponting to save the Aussies and in doing so break the Australian partnership record of 234 with twin centuries.

Ponting was controversially given not out early as Mahela Jayawardena took a catch in the gully which the umpires turned down. Symonds finished with 156 the highest score at the SCG and Ponting finished with 124.

Australia would go on to defeat Sri Lanka and seal the series win in Brisbane by 9 wickets.
