View dismissal AC Gilchrist c Kapugedera b Malinga 118 194 132 9 3 89.39
43.2 Gilchrist is finally gone, trying to loft one over long-off and took a leading edge to the covers, Kapugedera holding on this time over his head, having dropped him last over 206/5
View dismissal ML Hayden c Maharoof b Malinga 4 17 11 0 0 36.36
3.6 extra pace from Malinga, straight and short, Hayden tangles himself up looking to bunt it from outside off through midwicket, doesn't get over it whatsoever and the ball scoops up to Farveez Maharoof 16/1
View dismissal RT Ponting* c Jayawardene b Vaas 25 35 25 4 0 100.00
12.1 Ponting gets across but doesn't play either forward or back, instead guiding the ball to Jayawardene at first slip, who had predicted his downfall before this match 66/2
View dismissal MJ Clarke st †Sangakkara b Muralitharan 43 105 69 4 0 62.31
36.2 beautiful doosra and out comes Clarke, drawn forward, and off come the bails, Sangakkara quicker than a whippet 171/3
View dismissal A Symonds c †Sangakkara b Maharoof 4 5 8 0 0 50.00
37.4 outside off, cuts hard at a wideish one, but under the ball and a woody-sounding click travels on to the keeper who takes a good tumbling catch low 177/4
View dismissal MEK Hussey c Jayawardene b Kulasekara 25 53 28 0 1 89.28
48.1 Hussey looks to hit across the line rather than straight and his would-be pull goes up instead to the covers where Jayawardene sets himself to take a straightforward catch 232/8
View dismissal JR Hopes c Jayasuriya b Kulasekara 2 10 5 0 0 40.00
45.1 lifted from a short one outside off high and higher - the ball catching the toe end - and goes on over towards Jayasuriya who clings on, making no mistake 217/6
View dismissal GB Hogg b Malinga 5 11 10 0 0 50.00
47.4 bowled him this time, Hogg backing away yet again and the perfect yorker cleans him up, clattering into all three stumps - strike. 232/7
View dismissal B Lee b Malinga 2 12 6 0 0 33.33
49.4 cleaned up with another excellent yorker to finish the tail off well, Lee backing away, and Malinga firing in on leg stump 236/10
View dismissal MG Johnson run out (Dilshan) 0 2 1 0 0 0.00
48.4 from Kulasekara, rising outside off, pushed out to mid-off and a straight throw from Dilshan crashes down the stumps to run out Johnson 233/9

  Sri Lanka innings (target: 237 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal TM Dilshan b Johnson 11 23 13 2 0 84.61
4.2 castled! 142kph from Johnson and that's a yorker length ball that swings in late, Dilshan goes for the expansive drive but is beaten all ends up, through the gate, door and kitchen onto the middle and off stump. That sound of ball hitting stumps (tling) isn't going to please Dilshan. The WACA is on fire. 35/2
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Hopes b Bracken 12 14 10 2 0 120.00
3.1 he's thrown it away, Jayasuriya charges down the track and tries to smack Bracken over extra-cover, can only get a thick outside edge, though, and pops a simple catch to third man. The fielder there is alert and nabs one of the most important wickets. Needless shot after such a good start. But Bracken won't be complaining 29/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara b Lee 80 180 114 4 0 70.17
45.3 Lee finally gets a wicket which means he's taken a wicket in all international matches this summer. Sangakkara backs away to try to drive to mid-off and is bowled by a swinging yorker which clinks into leg 173/10
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c Ponting b Johnson 21 27 25 4 0 84.00
10.5 but he's gone now, just as he was getting set, the ball pushed across him making him play, hint of movement off the seam and with some late swing once he was committed to the shot, taking a step and thick-edging to second slip where Ponting makes no mistake 71/3
View dismissal LPC Silva c Symonds b Bracken 0 11 10 0 0 0.00
13.6 outside off and there's a contender for catch of the season, Silva lashes a full-blooded cover drive to Symonds who pulls off an audacious take, diving low and really stretching out his left hand to get under it 76/4
View dismissal CK Kapugedera c Hussey b Hopes 26 71 60 2 0 43.33
32.5 gone! Hopes breaks the stand as he sends in a short and straight one which the batsman hoicks off his nose over to midwicket where Hussey takes the catch 129/5
View dismissal MF Maharoof c sub (BJ Haddin) b Hogg 7 25 16 1 0 43.75
39.1 down on one knee and sweeps high to deep midwicket where Haddin takes a cool catch 159/6
View dismissal WPUJC Vaas c †Gilchrist b Hogg 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
39.2 cut not particularly well, high up in the air in fact and Gilchrist takes a few steps forward for an easy catch 159/7
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c Symonds b Bracken 0 5 7 0 0 0.00
40.5 outside off, pulled high over Symonds' head at midwicket, who runs round to take it, the ball coming up off the top edge, done by pace, and there's another duck 160/8
View dismissal SL Malinga b Johnson 5 15 18 1 0 27.77
44.6 and that's the one he's been seeking, gets it on target at last and Malinga is comprehensively bowled as he backs away and exposes his stumps 173/9
