Kulasekara to Hughes, OUT, caught behind! Kulasekara gets the ball to swing late from a good length from leg and middle stump line, Hughes is caught on the crease and squared up as he prods in defence, the outside edge is taken by Chandimal moving to his left

PJ Hughes c †Chandimal b Kulasekara 1 (9m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.50

Australia 4/1   DA Warner 3* (3b)   KMDN Kulasekara 0.5-0-0-1

Kulasekara to Clarke, OUT, Clarke's been given lbw and he's asked for a review too. Kulasekara hit the pad with a big inswinger, it moved sharply into Clarke off the seam. Clarke was pushing forward and was hit in line too. Replays indicate the ball would have clipped the top of middle. He's got to go.

MJ Clarke lbw b Kulasekara 20 (38m 20b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 50/2   DA Warner 28* (32b 3x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 5-1-16-2

Malinga to Hussey, OUT, Thirimanne's caught it after a juggle at first slip! Malinga bowled a beautiful outswinger, pitching around off and moving away. Hussey, having been peppered by the short stuff, stayed back and prodded away from his body, nicking it to Thirimanne's left. He caught it, lost grip but grabbed it again before falling to the ground.

DJ Hussey c Thirimanne b Malinga 1 (11m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 11.11

Australia 53/3   DA Warner 29* (36b 3x4)   SL Malinga 3.1-0-8-1

21.3

Herath to Bailey, OUT, what has Bailey done! He came down the pitch and tried to hit over the top, instead he mis-hit it straight to Thisara Perera at mid-on, he's thrown away a start, and after he battled hard early on. Bailey was beaten in the flight

GJ Bailey c NLTC Perera b Herath 22 (43m 39b 2x4 0x6) SR: 56.41

Australia 93/4   DA Warner 45* (53b 4x4)   HMRKB Herath 1.3-0-9-1

28.6

NLTC Perera to Warner, OUT, a huge appeal for lbw and the umpire raises the finger though I thought Warner had got a big inside edge on to his pad. Warner is dismayed as he sees the finger go up and he can't review it because Clarke had used up the only review available. And he had got a massive inside edge as he played from his crease at a good length ball that pitched around leg and middle

DA Warner lbw b NLTC Perera 60 (132m 73b 6x4 0x6) SR: 82.19

Australia 125/5   MS Wade 16* (25b 1x4)   NLTC Perera 4-0-26-1

31.4

Herath to Henriques, OUT, another lbw, and the umpires have missed another inside edge! Herath bowled the one that goes on with the arm to Henriques, who prodded forward to defend. The ball went on to the pad off the inside edge, and like Warner, Henriques has to go too

MC Henriques lbw b Herath 3 (10m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 27.27

Australia 130/6   MS Wade 18* (30b 1x4)   HMRKB Herath 6.4-0-30-2

38.1

Malinga to Johnson, OUT, Johnson isn't standing outside his crease, and he's fallen lbw, that is plumb. Malinga delivers a full ball that slants across Johnson from over the wicket before it tails late into the left-hander. Johnson is caught prodding from his crease, the ball beats the inside edge and crashes into the pad. No doubt there.

MG Johnson lbw b Malinga 10 (24m 25b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Australia 145/7   MS Wade 23* (44b 1x4)   SL Malinga 6.1-2-12-2

42.3

NLTC Perera to Wade, OUT, caught at third man! Wade's gone. The ball was short of a length outside off, Wade got under it and cut hard off the front foot, slashing it straight to Kulasekara as he ran in from the third man boundary, Australia lose their eighth

MS Wade c Kulasekara b NLTC Perera 31 (85m 53b 1x4 0x6) SR: 58.49

Australia 166/8   MA Starc 13* (17b 1x4)   NLTC Perera 8.3-0-43-2

45.5

Kulasekara to McKay, OUT, bowled him! McKay came out of his crease and tried to hammer the ball down the ground. It was the slower one and McKay was beaten

CJ McKay b Kulasekara 2 (16m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 18.18

Australia 182/9   MA Starc 27* (26b 3x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 8.5-2-23-3
