Sri Lanka in Australia ODI Series - 1st ODI

Australia v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 1 wicket (with 34 balls remaining)

45.3

Kulasekara to Hastings, no run, spot on! Yorker, about three inches short of the crease. Can't do much with it

45.4

Kulasekara to Hastings, no run, another yorker, this is even better, pitching on the crease. Digs it out, and that's the best he can do with it

45.5

Kulasekara to Hastings, 2 runs, misses the yorker, the low full toss is flicked away wide of deep midwicket

45.6

Kulasekara to Hastings, 1 run, another yorker, gets it into the on side for a single. Superb over - three runs and a wicket

Australia 207/7   JW Hastings 3* (4b)

46.1

Malinga to Hastings, 2 runs, length ball wide of off, sliced over point for a couple

46.2

Malinga to Hastings, 1 run, slower short ball again. Hastings nearly plays two shots to it. The second one is a guide towards third man. Lucky it doesn't carry

46.5

Malinga to Hastings, no run, lovely slower bouncer, 122.1ks, Hastings sways out of the line

46.6

Malinga to Hastings, FOUR, Malinga is unlucky here. Another slower bouncer, gets the top edge but it sails over short fine. Three boundaries in the last 30.4 overs

Australia 216/7   JW Hastings 10* (8b 1x4)

47.2

Kulasekara to Hastings, 1 run, just mises the yorker length, Hastings gets a lot of power behind what is esentially a dig-out, but Kula sticks out his right hand and saves three runs

47.4

Kulasekara to Hastings, 1 run, Hastings continues his charmed life. Late into the pull. The top-edge lands short of mid-off

Australia 220/7   JW Hastings 12* (10b 1x4)

48.2

Malinga to Hastings, 3 runs, shot! Through extra cover. Makes room early, gets a length ball, gets room too, and he gets it past extra cover. The boundary, though, is very long there

48.4

Malinga to Hastings, no run, that's the quicker bouncer, 134.1ks, Hastings gets the toe end on the pull, it bounces just in front of the bowler

48.5

Malinga to Hastings, 1 bye, slower yorker, 124.2ks, Hastings has no clue about it, it dips big time too. Even Sanga doesn't collect cleanly, and Hussey steals the bye

Australia 229/7   JW Hastings 15* (13b 1x4)

49.1

Perera to Hastings, 1 run, nice yorker, pitching around the crease, they take the single

49.3

Perera to Hastings, OUT, Michelle for Thisara! Hastings looks for the ramp shot, clearly not suited for that shot, doesn't get low, and Perera is full and straight and takes the prone middle stump. He is thrilled, raises his arms

JW Hastings b Perera 16 (23m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 106.66

Australia 235/8   JW Hastings 16 (15b 1x4)
