Johnson misses century, Australia 460 vs. SL

Mitchell Johnson narrowly missed scoring his second test century as Australia ended its first innings on 460 on the third morning of the second test, with Sri Lanka requiring a challenging 304 runs to avoid an innings defeat.
Looking to reclaim his allrounder status, Johnson _ who took four wickets on the first day _ finished on 93 not out but ran out of batting partners as the hosts built a commanding first-innings lead.
Resuming on 440-8, Nathan Lyon added just 1 run before offering an easy catch to substitute fielder Dinesh Chandimal at mid-wicket off Angelo Mathews in the third over of the morning.
Debutant paceman Jackson Bird failed to get off the mark in his first test innings and was bowled by Shaminda Eranga.
