Sri Lanka in Australia ODI Series - 3rd ODI

Australia v Sri Lanka

Australia won by 8 wickets (with 170 balls remaining)

0.1

McKay to Tharanga, 1 wide, well wide of off stump, he's started with a real loosener

0.1

McKay to Tharanga, no run, dropped! Oh, a chance straight away, though a tough one for Smith at point. It was shortish and wide of off, bounced a bit more than Tharanga expected and he cut uppishly, Smith hurled himself high to his left and just got his fingertips to it. Very tough chance.

0.2

McKay to Tharanga, no run, left alone outside off

0.3

McKay to Tharanga, no run, pushed to cover, can't beat the field

0.4

McKay to Tharanga, no run, beaten outside off, that's a good ball from McKay, nips away off the seam

0.5

McKay to Tharanga, no run, pushed away defensively towards point

0.6

McKay to Tharanga, 1 run, another good ball, angling across the left-hander from a leg-stump line, he's got it away off a thick edge and pad down to fine leg

Sri Lanka 2/0   CJ McKay 1-0-2-0

2.1

McKay to Dilshan, no run, ah yes, McKay is doing well here also - he's jagged it back off the seam and Dilshan plays outside that one, takes it on the back thigh

2.2

McKay to Dilshan, OUT, gone! McKay makes the breakthrough, it was on the pads, Dilshan tried to flick it through square leg but only succeeded in lofting it to Hussey, who was in the circle between midwicket and square leg

TM Dilshan c Hussey b McKay 1 (11m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

2.3

McKay to Sangakkara, no run, left alone outside off

2.4

McKay to Sangakkara, no run, worked away to square leg, can't beat Hussey

2.5

McKay to Sangakkara, no run, good delivery! Beats the outside edge of Sangakkara's bat, that was pitched just outside leg and seams away enough to fly past the edge on or just outside off stump

2.6

McKay to Sangakkara, OUT, two in the over for McKay! This one seams away as well, but started outside off stump and the width enticed Sangakkara to slash at that one, a thin little edge is taken by Haddin

KC Sangakkara c †Haddin b McKay 0 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 8/2   CJ McKay 2-1-2-2

4.1

McKay to Jayawardene, no run, probing line just outside off, Jayawardene defends

4.2

McKay to Jayawardene, no run, on the pads and this one holds up a little off the pitch, which may have been what also did for Dilshan, and Mahela nudges it safely to leg

4.3

McKay to Jayawardene, OUT, McKay gets his third! Very sharp catch by Cameron White at second slip as Jayawardene drives hard at a ball on a good length outside off, there might have been a little seam movement away and it flew off a thick edge high to White's right

DPMD Jayawardene c White b McKay 0 (6m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

4.4

McKay to Silva, no run, defended away safely to cover

4.5

McKay to Silva, no run, oh, another good ball, this one swings in, which surprised Silva and it struck him on the left leg, fortunately for Silva it was heading down leg

4.6

McKay to Silva, (no ball) 4 runs, beautiful on-drive from Silva after McKay overpitches and oversteps, Ferguson chases it down and dives inside the boundary but they've managed to run four. And now we have a free hit

4.6

McKay to Silva, no run, ah, Silva can't get the free hit away, it was a well-directed bouncer that Silva tried to hook, and he couldn't connect

Sri Lanka 19/3   CJ McKay 3-1-7-3

6.1

McKay to Tharanga, FOUR, Tharanga gets some width and chases it, flays a cover-drive in the air wide of the fielder, that runs away to the boundary

6.2

McKay to Tharanga, 2 runs, straighter ball and fuller, Tharanga has another hefty swing and this one flies off a thickish edge high towards third man, but it's too square for the fielder

6.3

McKay to Tharanga, no run, nice comeback, McKay pitches on middle stump and seams it away, it was a good length and beat the bat

6.4

McKay to Tharanga, 1 leg bye, on the pads, Tharanga gets it away to third man

6.5

McKay to Silva, no run, wide of off, Silva defends

6.6

McKay to Silva, no run, again it's probing outside off, Silva defends

Sri Lanka 27/3   CJ McKay 4-1-13-3

8.1

McKay to Silva, no run, inside edge onto the pads, almost squeezes through towards the stumps

8.2

McKay to Silva, FOUR, clipped away through midwicket, that's a good shot from Silva, who kept it along the ground

8.3

McKay to Silva, no run, defended towards mid-off

8.4

McKay to Silva, no run, angled bat from Silva, who nudges to point

8.5

McKay to Silva, no run, on the pads, Silva can't quite get it through the gap at square leg

8.6

McKay to Silva, no run, good ball, bounces and surprises Silva, who defends uppishly

Sri Lanka 35/3   CJ McKay 5-1-17-3

10.1

McKay to Silva, 1 run, ooh, a close attempted run-out, Silva nudged it to midwicket and took off quickly, which was a brave thing to do as the fielder was Mike Hussey, who threw down the stumps at the bowler's end with Silva safely in his ground

10.2

McKay to Tharanga, 2 runs, again that's sharp running, worked off the hips behind square and they run hard to get two

10.3

McKay to Tharanga, no run, on off stump, defended back down the pitch

10.4

McKay to Tharanga, no run, beaten outside off, good ball of a better length and angling away, Tharanga tried to cover-drive

10.5

McKay to Tharanga, no run, ooh, chipped in the air to mid-on but just short of the fielder, that one held up a little off the pitch, landed only a metre or two in front of Callum Ferguson

10.6

McKay to Tharanga, 1 run, worked away to third man for a single

Sri Lanka 43/3   CJ McKay 6-1-21-3

26.1

McKay to Silva, 1 run, short and swivelled through midwicket with an ungainly sort of pull

26.2

McKay to Randiv, 1 run, ah, good bounce from McKay and Randiv gets it high off the bat, it lobs to the vacant gully region

26.3

McKay to Silva, no run, cut towards point, can't beat the field

26.4

McKay to Silva, 1 run, oh, for about the fourth time this innings the batsman has cut on the up to third man, only for the ball to bounce a metre or two short - risky stuff

26.5

McKay to Randiv, no run, punched off the back foot to point, where Smith hurls himself to his right and makes an excellent save

26.6

McKay to Randiv, no run, this one nips in to the right-hander, who defends

Sri Lanka 95/6   CJ McKay 7-1-24-3

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

28.6

McKay to Randiv, 1 run, edged through the vacant third slip region, third man collects

Sri Lanka 104/8   CJ McKay 8-1-28-4

30.1

McKay to Randiv, FOUR, not a bad ball from McKay, good line and length, but Randiv has crunched this one forward of point for a boundary, making use of the Powerplay

30.2

McKay to Randiv, no run, and McKay comes back with a similar ball, but one that bounces a fraction more, and it beats the bat

30.3

McKay to Randiv, OUT, McKay has five! That's what the Aussies need to do against the tail - aim at the stumps! Randiv was backing off and opening the shoulders, he missed and McKay hit the off stump

S Randiv b McKay 7 (23m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 77.77

30.4

McKay to Fernando, no run

30.5

McKay to Fernando, 1 run, Fernando opens the face and runs it towards second slip, who knocks it down on the bounce

30.6

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   CJ McKay 9-1-33-5
