29.2

Starc to Malinga, no run, Malinga! He's not going to defend too much - backs away and slaps it back to the bowler, trying for a boundary - from his first ball!

29.3

Starc to Malinga, 1 wide, again he tries for a big shot, but this one is too short for Malinga to reach, and it's called a wide

29.3

Starc to Malinga, no run, Malinga backs off again and Starc does well to push it across outside off, wide enough that Malinga couldn't reach it, but only because he'd backed off, so it wasn't called a wide

29.4

Starc to Malinga, no run, again Malinga gives himself room, drives this one to cover

29.5

Starc to Malinga, 2 runs, pulled away through midwicket, it's chased down inside the boundary

Starc to Malinga, no run, Malinga throws everything at that, trying to slog it over midwicket, he can't connect

Sri Lanka 108/8   SL Malinga 2* (5b)

McKay to Malinga, no run, backs off and tries for a powerful pull but McKay follows him and beats the bat

Sri Lanka 113/9   SL Malinga 2* (6b)

31.4

Starc to Malinga, no run, Malinga swings wildly and can't connect

31.5

Starc to Malinga, no run, slower one now, Malinga swings and misses

31.6

Starc to Malinga, OUT, It's all over for Sri Lanka, Starc finishes with four as Malinga pulls over midwicket but gets it high off the bat, Ferguson at deep midwicket gets underneath that and has no trouble taking the catch

Sri Lanka 115/10   SL Malinga 2 (9b)
