Dogged Sri Lankan resistance and bad light denied Shane Warne the chance to become the leading wicket-taker in Test history as Australia completed a
1-0 series win amid dramatic scenes in Cairns on Tuesday.
Warne drew level with Muttiah Muralitharan's world-record total of 527 Test wickets but was unable to claim it outright after the Sri Lankan tail held
out on the final day to earn a draw in the second Test.
Sri Lanka were on 183 for eight when umpires Aleem Dar and Billy Bowden took the teams off because of the fading light.
