Sri Lanka won by 8 wickets (with 59 balls remaining)
Played at Adelaide Oval
13 January 2013 - day/night match (50-over match)

Mathews to Finch, OUT, Finch is gone! A loose shot that, goodish length and he just pushed through uppishly, looped up to extra cover and ends up being an easy catch, Australia have lost one early

AJ Finch c BMAJ Mendis b Mathews 4 (16m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 26.66

Australia 7/1   PJ Hughes 3* (6b)   AD Mathews 1.3-0-3-1

Kulasekara to Hughes, OUT, appeal for lbw and he's given, Hughes has called for a review, he showed his bat immediately after it struck him on the pads, seemed like it landed on leg and Hughes tried to work it square, missed, no impact with the bat at all, Hot Spot doesn't capture anything, and it would have gone on to hit middle and off, that's plumb, Erasmus has made the right call

PJ Hughes lbw b Kulasekara 3 (32m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 21.42

Australia 12/2   GJ Bailey 4* (13b)   KMDN Kulasekara 4-0-6-1

Malinga to Bailey, OUT, Well taken at midwicket by Thirimanne, short and it was nicely picked by Bailey, seized the length early and pulled it well but found Thirimanne, who leapt, timed his jump right, intercepted it and took a sharp one. The umpire was checking for a no-ball and replays show Malinga had a tiny part of his foot behind the line at the time of landing, so all good there, Australia have lost ther third

GJ Bailey c Thirimanne b Malinga 26 (56m 46b 2x4 1x6) SR: 56.52

Australia 51/3   DJ Hussey 15* (25b 2x4)   SL Malinga 2.4-0-14-1

NLTC Perera to Smith, OUT, Smith goes! A thin inside edge as he goes for the drive, pitched on a length outside off and Smith tried to go hard at that through extra cover, it came back in just a hint, and Smith got a thin inside edge through to the keeper

SPD Smith c †MDKJ Perera b NLTC Perera 8 (13m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 72.72

Australia 60/4   DJ Hussey 15* (29b 2x4)   NLTC Perera 4.1-0-15-1

BAW Mendis to Hussey, OUT, run-out, turns it into the leg side just a little square of midwicket, Dilshan is the man there, he moved to his right, slid, collected it and threw down the stumps at the non-striker's end, Mendis thought of collecting the throw initially but decided to let it be in the end as it was on its way to the stumps, Hussey is gone, this is a huge blow for Australia, Hussey called for a single, there was some hesitation and he was caught short in the end

DJ Hussey run out 29 (76m 41b 5x4 0x6) SR: 70.73

Australia 82/5   GJ Maxwell 7* (16b)   BAW Mendis 0.5-0-9-0

Mathews to Maxwell, OUT, Six down! Mathews strikes, lovely delivery, just outside off stump, drew the batsman forward with a good length and got it to nip away just a touch, Maxwell was committed to the drive as he walked forward, got a thin edge and Perera made no mistake behind the stumps

GJ Maxwell c †MDKJ Perera b Mathews 8 (22m 18b 0x4 0x6) SR: 44.44

Australia 83/6   BJ Haddin 0* (0b)   AD Mathews 7.1-0-20-2

Malinga to Cutting, OUT, gone! Malinga strikes, Perera takes his third catch, pitched up outside off and Cutting tries to drive it through cover, gets a thick edge and Perera dives to his right to snap that one

BCJ Cutting c †MDKJ Perera b Malinga 27 (58m 45b 2x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Australia 140/7   BJ Haddin 29* (46b 3x4)   SL Malinga 7.2-0-31-2

Malinga to Richardson, OUT, Oh dear, a first baller on debut, a deceptive slower one from Malinga, Richardson didn't spot it, it died low on the batsman and Richardson missed it to be struck low on the pad, perhaps just in line with leg stump, he's got to go

KW Richardson lbw b Malinga 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 140/8   BJ Haddin 29* (46b 3x4)   SL Malinga 7.3-0-31-3

NLTC Perera to McKay, OUT, appeal for a catch, short of a good length outside off, tries to open the face there to play it past point, it's given not out but the Sri Lankans have reviewed it, Hot Spot shows no heat signature, the umpire is taking his time to decide this, no real sound in live motion, the appeal was spontaneous but no strong technical evidence there of a deflection. Would you believe it, that's been given out. Surprise all around, McKay is surprised, the decision has been overturned.

CJ McKay c †MDKJ Perera b NLTC Perera 4 (15m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 36.36

Australia 146/9   BJ Haddin 31* (49b 3x4)   NLTC Perera 7.5-0-31-2

BAW Mendis to Haddin, OUT, Haddin holes out, found deep midwicket, pitched on a length and he sensed a chance, swung it hard but flat and straight to Thirimanne in the deep

BJ Haddin c Thirimanne b BAW Mendis 50 (100m 67b 4x4 1x6) SR: 74.62

Australia 170/10   XJ Doherty 5* (12b)   BAW Mendis 7.5-0-41-1
