Sri Lanka tour of Australia, 2nd T20I: Australia v Sri Lanka at Melbourne, Jan 28, 2013
Sri Lanka won by 2 runs (D/L method)
28 January 2013 - night match (20-over match)

Faulkner to Dilshan, OUT, slower ball again, and this time he bowls him! Dilshan tried to pull that one, but it didn't bounce as high as he expected. It takes an under edge and clips off stump. I think the slowness of the ball did him in there.

TM Dilshan b Faulkner 6 (12m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Sri Lanka 15/1   MDKJ Perera 2* (7b)   JP Faulkner 0.5-0-2-1

Laughlin to Chandimal, OUT, that is an awful looking shot. Short outside off stump, Chandimal tries to heave that over mid on with a cross-bat shot, but is too late on the stroke, and ends up scooping it to Bailey at mid off. Didn't look too comfortable, despite the boundary

LD Chandimal c Bailey b Laughlin 5 (11m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Sri Lanka 33/2   MDKJ Perera 14* (14b 3x4)   B Laughlin 0.3-0-4-1

Maxwell to MDKJ Perera, OUT, well caught, running back. Perera is down the track, but beaten in the flight by Maxwell and he hits that high. Bailey runs back from cover to take a difficult catch over his shoulder. Perera perishes again, having promised much early on. Sri Lanka need a partnership here though.

MDKJ Perera c Bailey b Maxwell 15 (30m 17b 3x4 0x6) SR: 88.23

Sri Lanka 39/3   DPMD Jayawardene 4* (4b)   GJ Maxwell 1.4-0-8-1

Doherty to BMAJ Mendis, OUT, holes out to long off. Doherty bowls that a bit flatter, and Mendis runs down the pitch, but can't get under it. He hits it hard and flat, and straight to Faulkner at long off

BMAJ Mendis c Faulkner b Doherty 25 (32m 24b 3x4 0x6) SR: 104.16

Sri Lanka 102/4   DPMD Jayawardene 38* (32b 2x4 2x6)   XJ Doherty 3.2-0-22-1
