Sri Lanka in Australia ODI Series - 5th ODI

Australia v Sri Lanka

Australia won by 32 runs

6.4

Dilshan to Warner, OUT, Dilshan is being mobbed by his team-mates, lovely delivery, angled in on a good length from round the stumps, pitches off, and straightens sharply to beat Warner's push and hit the stump

DA Warner b Dilshan 10 (22m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Australia 31/1   MS Wade 21* (22b 4x4)   TM Dilshan 3.4-2-12-1

9.6

Kulasekara to Wade, OUT, OUT! Second breakthrough for Sri Lanka, and no, this one isn't the outswinger to the left handers. Kulasekara pitches it on leg and gets it to straighten, which is what does Wade in. the batsman had expected that to go with the angle and played a delicate cut shot, but the ball struck him in front and the review could not save him.

MS Wade lbw b Kulasekara 23 (36m 28b 4x4 0x6) SR: 82.14

Australia 37/2   PJ Hughes 4* (14b)   KMDN Kulasekara 5-0-24-1

26.4

NLTC Perera to Bailey, OUT, would you believe it? Perera has conjured a wicket out of nowhere. Fullish ball, seemed to hang in the pitch for a moment and Bailey was too quick on the shot. He ends up lobbing that straight back to the bowler, who takes a decent catch, bending low on his follow through.

GJ Bailey c & b NLTC Perera 17 (67m 43b 1x4 0x6) SR: 39.53

Australia 97/3   PJ Hughes 43* (71b 4x4)   NLTC Perera 2.4-0-17-1

43.6

NLTC Perera to Hussey, OUT, Perera has conjured another wicket - a run out this time. Hussey hit that straight into the pitch and took off for a run that simply wasn't there, because the ball had only made it as far as the bowler. Hussey turned to return to his crease, but Perera was on target with the throw and Hussey was miles out. Decent knock there from Hussey. The end of a very good partnership.

DJ Hussey run out 34 (76m 39b 1x4 0x6) SR: 87.17

Australia 195/4   PJ Hughes 106* (136b 10x4)   NLTC Perera 6-0-39-1

46.6

Malinga to Maxwell, OUT, another slower ball, an full. Maxwell trying to smash that over the top, but he's undone by the lack of pace again, and this time the top edge sails high enough for a fielder to settle under it at extra cover.

GJ Maxwell c Thirimanne b Malinga 9 (14m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 218/5   PJ Hughes 119* (145b 10x4 1x6)   SL Malinga 9-1-44-1
