Sri Lankan spinner Muttiah Muralitharan claimed four wickets in a drawn-three day tour match against the Cricket Australia Chairman's XI at Adelaide Oval here Monday ahead of the Test series against Australia.
Muralitharan, eight wickets short of Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne's world record of 708 Test wickets, captured 4-121 off 44 overs as the Chairman's XI forged a 41-run lead on the first innings.
The Chairman's XI were dismissed for 409 off 122.2 overs in reply to Sri Lanka's first innings 368 for six declared.
Batting a second time, Sri Lanka finished at 125 for three off 36 overs when play was called off early by mutual agreement.
The tourists lost two wickets to paceman Mick Lewis (2-17) before captain Mahela Jayawardene (52) gained some valuable batting time ahead of the November 8 Brisbane first Test, following his first innings duck, with Thilan Samaraweera (41 not out).
Sanath Jaysuriya missed the final day with a head cold with vice-captain Kumar Sangakkara and reserve paceman Chanaka Welagedara troubled by leg injuries.
Muralitharan had Philip Hughes stumped for 49, and claimed invitational skipper Luke Ronchi out on the second ball of the morning for a duck when he was bamboozled and was bowled by an off-break.
Cullen Bailey played back to a well-pitched quicker ball to be leg before wicket for three.
South Australian Tom Plant compiled 124 before the remaining wickets fell quickly after lunch with Muralitharan having Plant taken at short fine leg from a top-edged sweep.
In Sri Lanka's second innings batting practice, Marvan Atapattu was lbw half-forward to Lewis for 15 and Michael Vandort pushed a return catch for 14.
The Sri Lankans next play Queensland in a three-day game in Brisbane starting on Friday.
