Sri Lanka in Australia ODI Series - 3rd ODI

Australia v Sri Lanka

Australia won by 8 wickets (with 170 balls remaining)

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

Sri Lanka 8/1   WU Tharanga 2* (10b)   CJ McKay 1.2-0-2-1

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   WU Tharanga 2* (10b)   CJ McKay 2-1-2-2

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

Sri Lanka 14/3   WU Tharanga 8* (16b 1x4)   CJ McKay 2.3-1-2-3

13.5

Watson to Tharanga, OUT, Watson makes the breakthrough! He's swung it in to Tharanga, who pushed forward without much intent, the ball struck him in line and Erasmus says that's out. Pitched in line, straightened well and the only question was height, but it looked good at first glance.

WU Tharanga lbw b Watson 28 (64m 53b 3x4 0x6) SR: 52.83

Sri Lanka 50/4   LPC Silva 10* (20b 1x4)   SR Watson 1.5-0-5-1

21.4

Starc to Mathews, OUT, got him! Starc is ecstatic as he collects his first ODI wicket! Angled across Mathews, who was on the move and trying to drive through off, a thick inside edge rockets back onto the leg stump

AD Mathews b Starc 9 (35m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 56.25

Sri Lanka 81/5   LPC Silva 27* (51b 2x4)   MA Starc 3.4-0-16-1

25.5

Starc to Mendis, OUT, gone! Starc gets his second with another ball that bounces sharply off a good length, Mendis has just tried to defend that ball and a thick edge is taken at chest height by Haddin, very good bowling from Starc

BMAJ Mendis c †Haddin b Starc 5 (18m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 45.45

Sri Lanka 92/6   LPC Silva 31* (65b 2x4)   MA Starc 5.5-0-20-2

27.4

Starc to Silva, OUT, Starc has three! And two of them from batsmen playing on! Silva has tried to drive through off, almost down on one knee as he plays it, he hasn't judged the angle quite right and a thick inside edge crashes into the stumps

LPC Silva b Starc 33 (105m 72b 2x4 0x6) SR: 45.83

Sri Lanka 95/7   S Randiv 1* (4b)   MA Starc 6.4-0-20-3

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   S Randiv 1* (4b)   CJ McKay 7.5-1-27-4

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

Sri Lanka 112/9   SL Malinga 2* (5b)   CJ McKay 8.3-1-32-5

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

SL Malinga c Ferguson b Starc 2 (15m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 22.22

Sri Lanka 115/10   CRD Fernando 2* (5b)   MA Starc 9-0-27-4
