Australia won by 107 runs
11 January 2013 - day/night match (50-over match)

BAW Mendis to Finch, OUT, outside edge! Mendis strikes in his first over of his one-day comeback, it was bowled off the back of the hand, Finch was prodding forward, bounced a bit more and took the edge, no doubts about that

AJ Finch c †Chandimal b BAW Mendis 16 (42m 28b 0x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Australia 53/1   PJ Hughes 35* (37b 6x4)   BAW Mendis 0.5-0-1-1

Dilshan to Khawaja, OUT, Appeal fora run out and Khawaja is in trouble! And he's gone! Schoolboy error by Khawaja, credit to Jeevan Mendis for this one, Khawaja worked it towards short midwicket and set off, he turned back and had to dive at the crease, he made the mistake of not sliding with his bat face on the ground, Mendis swooped down and under-armed the throw to the keeper Chandimal, top stuff by Mendis

UT Khawaja run out 3 (18m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 27.27

Australia 72/2   PJ Hughes 49* (55b 7x4)   TM Dilshan 1.4-0-6-0

Malinga to Hughes, OUT, Hughes swings and gets an edge! This was the slower ball, outside off, Hughes made room and tried to mow him across the line over midwicket, gets a thick edge and the ball loops towards Chandimal who takes it falling forward

PJ Hughes c †Chandimal b Malinga 112 (162m 129b 14x4 0x6) SR: 86.82

Australia 212/3   GJ Bailey 76* (66b 7x4 1x6)   SL Malinga 7-1-47-1

Mathews to Bailey, OUT, no century for Bailey I'm afraid! This was the slower ball and a touch short, pulled in front of square and it went flat and fast to Jeevan Mendis at deep midwicket

GJ Bailey c BMAJ Mendis b Mathews 89 (118m 79b 8x4 1x6) SR: 112.65

Australia 241/4   DJ Hussey 16* (9b 2x4)   AD Mathews 7.4-0-46-1

Kulasekara to Maxwell, OUT, the slower ball gets him, the leg cutter and Hussey walks down the pitch looking to chip it over the on side, doesn't control it and A Mendis jogs ti his right at midwicket and takes it

GJ Maxwell c BAW Mendis b Kulasekara 5 (6m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 83.33

Australia 248/5   DJ Hussey 18* (11b 2x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 8-0-34-1
