View dismissal WU Tharanga b Doherty 34 42 28 7 0 121.42
9.4 Doherty strikes, Tharanga went back as he saw a marginally shortish one, it turned in sharply and beat his attempted cut to hit off stump, he was looking really good, Doherty is pumped up 54/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan* c Bollinger b DJ Hussey 29 55 41 4 0 70.73
12.3 Dilshan has thrown it away, he was looking increasingly impatient, got down the track as he saw some flight outside off, but was still not close enough to the ball as he blasted it straight to mid off 76/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Smith b Johnson 16 36 19 3 0 84.21
16.5 Johnson has got Sanga, huge wicket, it is the slower one, bowled full close to off for the drive, mighty useful on this track, Sanga comes forward and looks to push hard. but pops it straight to short extra cover 89/4
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c †Haddin b Johnson 3 10 8 0 0 37.50
14.3 Australia are appealing for caught behind, it was a fullish and wide one slanted across Mahela who went for the drive, Haddin took it tumbling to his right, Australia are sure about it, umpire de Silva walks across towards square leg to check if it has carried, it has gone very low but right in to Haddin's gloves, and umpire de Silva sends Mahela back after checking with the third umpire, Johnson strikes in his first over 80/3
View dismissal LD Chandimal c Clarke b Bollinger 12 21 13 1 0 92.30
19.1 what a catch that is from Michael Clarke, Doug slanted a length ball across Chandimal who got too far across and had a poke at it, the edge went between Haddin and Clarke at wide slip who flew to his left and grabbed the ball one-handed at it almost rushed passed him, superb reflexes from the captain, Australia on top 101/5
View dismissal AD Mathews c Watson b Johnson 15 31 18 3 0 83.33
22.6 Angelo becomes the latest Sri Lanka batsman to throw it away, these shots are certainly not on on this pitch, he looks to come down the track and make room to clobber a pitched up delivery over mid off, but cannot clear the man, straight to him 117/7
View dismissal BMAJ Mendis b Johnson 2 8 6 0 0 33.33
20.5 Johnson is pumped up, he has gone through Mendis' defenses with a pacy yorker from over the stumps that swung in a bit late to clatter in to off and middle 112/6
View dismissal S Randiv c Doherty b Johnson 41 64 50 4 1 82.00
38.1 they have finally broken the partnership, it is Johnson again, five for him, Randiv goes for the big lofted shot down the ground off a full delivery, but mishits it high in the air and Doherty settles under it at long off and takes it cleanly 177/8
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c MEK Hussey b Lee 34 79 57 2 2 59.64
41.1 superb shot, but what a catch from Mike Hussey, Lee gets his 350th ODI wicket, banged it in short and Nuwan cracked the pull right out of the middle of the bat, it was dying in front of Hussey at deep midwicket, but he dived forward to take the ball close to the ground 191/10
View dismissal BAW Mendis b Johnson 0 4 5 0 0 0.00
38.6 and gets his sixth with a slanted length ball that hits the top of off stump, Mendis just went pushing away from his body and was nowhere near the line of the ball 177/9

View dismissal SR Watson c Jayawardene b Randiv 69 49 51 5 6 135.29
11.6 Watson has fallen, the method was bound to come undone at least off one delivery, happened this time, Randiv tossed it up around middle and leg, Watson lunged for the sweep, and got a top edge that swirled to the man at short fine leg who went a few steps back and to his left to take the ball as it came over his shoulder 81/2

8.6 Haddin can't survive this over, he hasn't looked comfortable at all, tosses it up, it is the one that breaks back in, Haddin just plays all around it, probably for the one turning away, and middle stump is pegged back 59/1
