Sri Lanka in Australia ODI Series - 3rd ODI

Australia v Sri Lanka

Australia won by 8 wickets (with 170 balls remaining)

27.5

Starc to Perera, no run, good sharp bounce again, that's what has had the Sri Lankans worried about Starc this innings, Perera defends warily

27.6

Starc to Perera, 1 run, shouts of catch it! But they can't - it was a good bouncer, well-directed and in trying to get out of the way Perera has skewed it in the air off the bat towards gully, second slip and backward point converge and it lands between them

Sri Lanka 96/7   NLTC Perera 1* (2b)

28.1

McKay to Perera, no run, shortish and on line, Perera ducks it

28.2

McKay to Perera, 4 leg byes, worked away off the hips for a boundary, fine leg can't save that, so the Powerplay has started well for Sri Lanka as they finally reach their 100

28.3

McKay to Perera, 1 wide, wrong line from McKay, wide down leg side

28.3

McKay to Perera, no run, leading edge lands safely - Perera didn't know much about that one. In fact it's off the shoulder of the bat, lobs in the air to a silly-point sort of position

28.4

McKay to Perera, 2 runs, good shot, Perera pulls that confidently over midwicket but there's a man in the deep

28.5

McKay to Perera, OUT, good catch from Smith! Perera threw everything at that one to a fuller ball, it's flown off a leading edge towards point, Smith looks to chase it back behind square but then has to adjust his movement, and takes it well above his head, facing back towards third man. That was not an easy catch, but Smith made it look pretty comfortable in the end.

NLTC Perera c Smith b McKay 3 (6m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 42.85

Sri Lanka 103/8   NLTC Perera 3 (7b)
