Australian all-rounder Cameron Green stunned players and experts with a funny shot during the first Test against Sri Lanka.

In a video posted on Twitter, Green can be seen playing a sweep shot but the right-handed batsman misses, only for the ball to hit it on the backside of the bat and travel to the boundary line.

Green scored 77 as Australia posted 321 in their first innings in reply to Lanka's 212.

Meanwhile, spinners Travis Head and Nathan Lyon took four wickets each to give Australia a 10-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the first session on Day Three of the first Test on Friday.

Sri Lanka made only 113 runs in its second innings leaving Australia five runs to win and David Warner finished the match in four balls.

Head, bowling his part-time off-spinners, took four wickets in the space of 17 deliveries to return 4-10. He had not taken a wicket in the 26 previous Test matches.

Lyon continued his good form, taking 5-90 in the first innings to return 4-31 in the second.
