DA Warner c Perera b Fernando 2 (8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Australia 12/1   MJ Clarke 8* (11b 1x4)   CRD Fernando 2-0-7-1

Perera to Clarke, OUT, what a catch! Dilhara Fernando has just plucked an incredible take over his head! Clarke backed away and tried to slam it over the bowler's head, Fernando running back from mid-on had totally misjudged it and it seemed to be sailing over his head, but at the last minute he's thrown his right hand up and taken it!

MJ Clarke c Fernando b Perera 16 (19b 1x4 1x6) SR: 84.21

Australia 22/2   SR Watson 2* (4b)   NLTC Perera 1-0-2-1

Australia 30/3   DJ Hussey 6* (8b)   NLTC Perera 1.5-0-5-2

Randiv to Hussey, OUT, Randiv strikes first ball! Hussey looks to cut but is surprised by the bounce from Randiv's topspinner, an edge is well taken by Sangakkara. This is really unravelling for Australia.

Australia 43/5   BJ Haddin 4* (8b)   SL Malinga 1.1-0-5-1

Randiv to Smith, OUT, oh, good bowling from Randiv! Smith dances down the pitch and Randiv holds that ball back a little, doesn't impart much spin and it beats the bat, Smith is comprehensively stumped

Australia 110/7   JW Hastings 1* (1b)   S Randiv 3.5-0-25-3

Fernando to Hastings, 1 run, OUT, crunched through cover and the batsmen come back for an ambitious two, the throw finds Hastings short diving back into his ground, he's unselfishly run out trying for that final run

JW Hastings run out 15 (8b 2x4 0x6) SR: 187.50
