Sri Lanka in Australia ODI Series - 3rd ODI

Australia v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 4 wickets (with 180 balls remaining)

2.1

Mathews to Warner, OUT, Warner slaps it straight to mid-off! This wasn't exactly Mathews' best bal, it was short and wide and deserving to be hit, Warner chased it and flat-batted it towards mid-off, Eranga jumped and cupped it over his head and nearly fluffed it as the ball slipped out of his hand as he tried to throw it away in celebration. The umpires had a look for a few seconds but were convinced he was in control. Nervy moment for Eranga

DA Warner c Eranga b Mathews 4 (8m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 36.36

Australia 4/1   PJ Hughes 0* (2b)   AD Mathews 1.1-0-1-1

5.3

Kulasekara to Hughes, OUT, the captain's sharp at slip! A circumspect Hughes walks back, Kulasekara angled it across the left-hander from over the wicket, it was full and moving away, Hughes was looking to run it down to third man and that would have been okay had there been just one slip, Jayawardene moved quickly to his left at second slip and took it low

PJ Hughes c Jayawardene b Kulasekara 3 (23m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 21.42

Australia 13/2   MJ Clarke 5* (8b)   KMDN Kulasekara 2.3-0-7-1

7.3

Kulasekara to Hussey, OUT, Appeal for a caught behind and Hussey has been given not out, and SL are reviewing it. This one nips back in from outside off, Hussey was looking to cut, there was a sound as the ball passes the bat and Perera takes it well diving to his left. Kettleborough didn't pick it up and Mahela wanted it reviewed, Hot Spot showed a thin inside edge

DJ Hussey c †MDKJ Perera b Kulasekara 4 (9m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Australia 21/3   MJ Clarke 9* (14b 1x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 3.3-1-11-2

7.4

Kulasekara to Bailey, OUT, Bailey pads up and Aus have lost two in two! Kulasekara's inswing is really causing trouble to the right-handers, moved back in and Bailey was forward and across to shoulder arms, the ball hits his pads and he was in front of the off stump

GJ Bailey lbw b Kulasekara 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 21/4   MJ Clarke 9* (14b 1x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 3.4-1-11-3

11.1

Kulasekara to Clarke, OUT, The middle stump has been pushed back and Kulasekara has picked up his fourth! He gets the Australian captain, Kula's inswing to the right-handers is causing havoc at the Gabba, Clarke was looking to play down the ground but left a gap between pad and bat, the ball sneaked through and knocked back the stump

MJ Clarke b Kulasekara 9 (44m 26b 1x4 0x6) SR: 34.61

Australia 28/5   MS Wade 5* (9b)   KMDN Kulasekara 5.1-1-16-4

11.3

Kulasekara to Henriques, OUT, Five for the road for Kula and Australia are a trainwreck at the Gabba! That inswing again, needs no further mention, Henriques gets across and he too is bowled through the gate, hits the top of the stumps

MC Henriques b Kulasekara 2 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 30/6   MS Wade 5* (9b)   KMDN Kulasekara 5.3-1-18-5

14.6

Malinga to Johnson, OUT, the attrition rate gets worse for the hosts! Malinga gets this one to move towards middle stump from over the wicket, Johnson tries to work it away to the on side, the ball hits his pad and then heads towards middle stump, almost through the gate

MG Johnson b Malinga 2 (18m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.50

Australia 35/7   MS Wade 6* (14b)   SL Malinga 4-2-4-1

16.5

Malinga to Wade, OUT, Now even that score of 70 looks days away! Soft dismissal for Wade, this was pitched up and moving away from the left-hander, he tries to steer it square on the off side but ends up spooning a catch to backward point

MS Wade c Dilshan b Malinga 8 (48m 21b 0x4 0x6) SR: 38.09

Australia 38/8   MA Starc 1* (4b)   SL Malinga 4.5-2-5-2

18.3

Malinga to McKay, OUT, caught behind! This could have sent back even a genuine batsman, Malinga gets this one to move away from the right-hander, McKay was caught at the crease and couldn't move across to cover the line, thin edge and Perera takes it

CJ McKay c †MDKJ Perera b Malinga 0 (8m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 40/9   MA Starc 3* (6b)   SL Malinga 5.3-2-6-3

26.4

Eranga to Doherty, OUT, so 74 it is! Soft dismissal to end the innings and fitting too when you look at the scorecard, he was trying to work it to the on side, leading edge popped up to cover

XJ Doherty c Mendis b Eranga 15 (41m 27b 3x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Australia 74/10   MA Starc 22* (28b 2x4)   RMS Eranga 2.4-0-12-1
