View dismissal FDM Karunaratne c Hussey b Bird 5 33 23 0 0 21.73
7.5 83.2 mph, oh dear that was a soft dismissal! Karunaratne gets a top edge. It was short and the left-hander was eyeing that deep square leg boundary, played too early, fetched it from outside off and the ball swirled above the slips instead, Hussey jogged back a few yards and took the catch 26/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan c †Wade b Bird 34 100 61 5 0 55.73
21.4 83.6 mph, edged! Bird pitches this on a good length on the off stump and gets it to move away, Dilshan is tentative, fishes at it and there's a thick edge to Wade 72/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c Clarke b Starc 72 154 110 12 1 65.45
42.1 85.1 mph, and the bowling change does the trick! Comes over the wicket, lands it outside off, Mahela goes forward and across to drive and gets a thick outside edge at waist height to Clarke at first slip, they check for the no-ball and Starc's heel was just behind the popping crease before he dragged it forward, legal delivery, Mahela has to walk 134/3
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne c Warner b Lyon 91 219 151 13 1 60.26
73.3 52.6 mph, soft dismissal, good catch and Thirimanne has to go for 91! Lyon tossed it up from round the wicket, outside off, Thirimanne couldn't resist going for the uppish driver over cover, he miscued it towards cover point, Warner ran to his right from cover and timed his dive well and took the catch 250/6
View dismissal TT Samaraweera lbw b Siddle 12 39 27 0 0 44.44
50.6 83.4 mph, trapped in front and Samaraweera was walking, as it so appeared! Siddle gets this one to nip back in off the pitch, Samaraweera was trapped on the back foot, hit plumb in front of middle and leg as he tried to turn it to the on side 167/4
View dismissal AD Mathews c Hussey b Starc 15 60 48 3 0 31.25
66.2 86.5 mph, Hussey takes his second catch! Once again Starc doesn't take long to strike in a new spell, it was angled across the right-hander, Mathews was forward and across and the edge traveled to Hussey at second slip, in fact he took his eyes off the ball slightly before taking it 222/5
View dismissal LD Chandimal b Starc 24 58 44 5 0 54.54
80.1 87.1 mph, Yorker! Troubles the best of them, Starc's making it a habit striking early in a spell, this was angled in beautifully from the off stump, lands on the blockhole, Chandimal wasn't quick enough to get his bat down, crashes between middle and leg 271/8
View dismissal KTGD Prasad c Starc b Siddle 2 5 4 0 0 50.00
74.4 83.5 mph, another poor shot leads to a wicket! This was short on the off stump, Prasad tries to backhand that one over mid-on presumably, goes back at the crease and completely mistimes it, it travels low to mid-on where Starc takes a good low catch falling forward 256/7
View dismissal HMRKB Herath c Siddle b Bird 5 30 16 1 0 31.25
81.4 83.6 mph, and that's the end of Herath, he has gone for a big heave and skied the ball to mid-off, Peter Siddle takes a comfortable catch. This could end quickly now for Sri Lanka 273/9
View dismissal RAS Lakmal c Hussey b Bird 5 35 23 0 0 21.73
87.4 80.4 mph, there's the breakthrough at last, Bird finally draws an edge and this one is taken by Michael Hussey at second slip moving to his right. Bird finishes with four wickets and the late finish means Australia won't have to bat tonight 294/10

Dilshan tosses this up and Warner gives the charge but doesn't properly get to the pitch of the ball, ends up skying it and Prasad judges it well, he back pedals from long-on and looks directly at the sun. It was a poor shot and Warner should have gone on to score a ton, but this is his natural game 166/2

65.2 51.4 mph, Clarke plays a rash shot and Karunaratne takes a well-judged catch!

58.3 Prasad to Clarke, Direct hit and Hussey is gone! Clarke dropped the ball towards cover and set off for a risky single, Hussey was struggling and Karunaratne hits direct at the striker's end, he looked in trouble even at normal speed. Will this be Hussey's final innings? 251/4
