Sri Lanka in Australia ODI Series - 3rd ODI

Australia v Sri Lanka

Australia won by 8 wickets (with 170 balls remaining)

1.1

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, there's an appeal first up for Johnson, though he didn't seem entirely convinced. It was a good ball - right on off stump and hits Tharanga on the flap of the back pad, not a bad shout actually.

1.2

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, right on line, Tharanga defends

1.3

Johnson to Tharanga, 1 run, on the hips at 144kph, it's worked away through square leg

1.4

Johnson to Dilshan, no run, super bounce and pace! That was 143kph but rising from chest height as it went past Dilshan, who tried to cut. Haddin did extremely well to take that high above his head in his right hand

1.5

Johnson to Dilshan, 1 run, 146kph and on off stump, Dilshan drives wide of cover and gets off the mark

1.6

Johnson to Tharanga, 4 leg byes, down leg side, worst ball of a good over, Tharanga gets it fine enough to beat Doherty at fine leg

Sri Lanka 8/0   MG Johnson 1-0-2-0

3.1

Johnson to Tharanga, FOUR, cut hard and in the air but Tharanga gets it just over cover-point, and right off the meat of the bat. Clarke hurled his hand up in the air but wasn't quite tall enough

3.2

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, beaten outside off, good line, good length, good comeback

3.3

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, fullish and straight, Tharanga defends

3.4

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, 146kph from Johnson just outside off, Tharanga pushes to cover

3.5

Johnson to Tharanga, 2 runs, confidence from Tharanga, he gets a short one wide of off and cuts uppishly, not trying to keep it down, but he's placed it safely wide of third man, who runs around to his left to cut off the boundary

3.6

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, cut to point, Smith does the fielding

Sri Lanka 14/2   MG Johnson 2-0-8-0

5.1

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, oh my goodness! This one has somehow missed the outside edge and the off stump, quick and well-directed

5.2

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, pushed away to cover, 147kph from Johnson, who's looking better in this short spell than he has for a little while

5.3

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, on the back foot, Tharanga punches to cover

5.4

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, oh, missed run-out! Tharanga pushed to mid-off and took off for a single, Silva wasn't interested and the fielder, Starc, threw at the striker's end but couldn't find the stumps, allowing Tharanga to get back. Phew, close call. Haddin hadn't got to the stumps yet to make the take.

5.5

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, on the pads, can't get it away

5.6

Johnson to Tharanga, 1 run, on the back foot, Tharanga gets a thickish edge that runs away safely to third man

Sri Lanka 20/3   MG Johnson 3-0-9-0

7.1

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, angled in to off stump, Tharanga defends

7.2

Johnson to Tharanga, 3 runs, good shot, Tharanga steps across to an inswinger just outside off and drives wide of cover, well placed

7.3

Johnson to Silva, 1 run, on the off stump, Silva nudges it behind square with soft hands

7.4

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, pushed towards mid-on, can't find the gap

Sri Lanka 31/3   MG Johnson 4-0-13-0

9.1

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, aggressive pull there from Tharanga, but he doesn't time it and the ball finds midwicket

9.2

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, good ball, even though it was only 134kph, the bounce surprised Tharanga, who dropped his bottom hand off the bat as he defended that one

9.3

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, short outside off, Tharanga slashes hard at a cut but straight to the man at point - the batsman will be disappointed not to have found the gap there

9.4

Johnson to Tharanga, FOUR, this time Tharanga's cut does find the gap! Well played to a bad ball, short and wide of off, he didn't try to keep it down but placed it safely behind point and too square for third man

9.5

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, punched to cover, can't find the gap

9.6

Johnson to Tharanga, no run, better line from Johnson, on off stump and it's defended
