View dismissal AJ Finch* c Malinga b Gunaratne 43 49 34 2 2 126.47
11.3 Malinga tracks down this skier, running in from short fine leg. Slower offcutter from Asela, Finch swipes early and sends a top-edge in the air. Smart catch from Malinga. Two catches in two overs for him. SL slowing Australia down 86/2
View dismissal M Klinger c Malinga b Sandakan 38 43 32 4 0 118.75
10.3 wrong'un, full on off stump, Klinger looks to slog it over the leg side. He did not pick the wrong'un I guess. Wanted to heave over the leg side, and ended up slicing an outside edge in the air. Malinga ventured in from point and clasped it, sliding on his knees 76/1
View dismissal TM Head c Prasanna b Malinga 31 46 25 0 1 124.00
18.4 First wicket for Malinga on return. Holes out to Prasanna, who makes no mistake this time. Head backs away outside leg stump, this is speared full and wide outside off. Head reaches out and nails it to the fielder 153/4
View dismissal MC Henriques c Kapugedera b Sanjaya 17 20 10 0 1 170.00
15.1 First international wicket for Sanjaya! Length ball on off, Henriques can't clear the long boundary. #MCGisbig. Holes out to Kapu at long-on. The shot was on, but the execution was bad, with the bat twisting in Henriques' hands 116/3
View dismissal AJ Turner c Prasanna b Malinga 18 22 13 1 0 138.46
18.5 Two in two for Malinga and Prasanna. The fielder lets out a roar. Malinga attempts a yorker, comes out as a full-toss on the leg stump. Turner swings and Prasanna runs to his right from deep midwicket to pouch it 153/5
JP Faulkner not out 14 9 7 2 0 200.00
View dismissal TD Paine run out (Kapugedera/Kulasekara) 0 7 0 0 0 -
19.4 Kulasekara to Faulkner, pretty full on off stump, forced away to long-on. Paine walks off. Faulkner and Paine risk the double. Kulasekara collects the throw and breaks the stumps. Paine dishes out a full-length dive, but is caught short. He knew he was out. Exits for a duck without facing a ball 162/6

View dismissal N Dickwella c Klinger b Zampa 30 38 25 4 1 120.00
8.5 quick fizzer angled across the off stump. Dickwella looks to flick it over midwicket. He can only lob a leading edge into the hands of Klinger at short third man 79/2
View dismissal WU Tharanga* c †Paine b Cummins 0 5 2 0 0 0.00
0.6 Tharanga is rattled by pace. Nicked behind for a duck. Pace like fire, 146ks, swings away around off. Opens 'em up. Tharanga wafts and Paine gobbles up the edge 5/1
View dismissal EMDY Munaweera c Finch b Zampa 44 42 29 6 0 151.72
10.4 Zampa produces another breakthrough. Hip-high ball, half-tracker, on off stump, Munaweera pulls it flat to midwicket. Head-high catch for Finch. Munaweera played a half-hearted shot. Should have given it a proper thump. Wristspinners having a good day in Melbourne 91/3
View dismissal DAS Gunaratne st †Paine b Turner 52 41 37 7 0 140.54
17.1 Stumping chance. This looks tight. Sliding across off from around the stumps. Asela, stretching forward, attempts a reverse-sweep and misses. He loses his balance, and can't ground his bat in time. Good awareness from Paine. Maiden international wicket for Turner 151/4
View dismissal TAM Siriwardana lbw b Turner 15 35 11 1 0 136.36
17.3 Two wickets in three balls for the debutant. Pushed through flatter and quicker, Siriwardana plays back and is pinned in front of leg stump. Was it heading down leg? I am sure this is missing the stumps. The umpire doesn't think so, and raises his finger. The tracker suggests it was heading down 152/5
