  Sri Lanka innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal WU Tharanga c †Haddin b Johnson 13 49 30 2 0 43.33
10.2 Johnson strikes. His red-hot form continues. Digs this one in short, outside off, Tharanga looks to sway out of the line, but doesn't quite take the gloves out of the way. The ball doesn't quite rise up, and kisses the glove on the way 41/2
View dismissal TM Dilshan* b Lee 24 35 23 4 0 104.34
7.4 Inswinger. Timber. Dilshan has been a touch late with the fuller deliveries, and this one is slightly shorter than the driving length, and sneaks in through the big gap between bat and pad. Middle stump is out, Lee is thrilled 37/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Johnson b DJ Hussey 52 121 85 1 1 61.17
36.2 Full toss! Caught at long-on! Goes for the midwicket boundary, but gets a sort of leading edge/toe end, and skies it to Johnson at long-on. Sanga can't believe it 140/5
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene c MEK Hussey b Doherty 17 41 30 1 0 56.66
19.5 Doherty gets his man, he has been frustrating Mahela with his accurate bowling and the drift that has been getting. Mahela goes for the big sweep from outside off, and places it right down deep square leg's throat 74/3
View dismissal LD Chandimal c †Haddin b Bollinger 1 4 4 0 0 25.00
20.2 awesome bowling... the bouncer is followed up by the length ball, in the channel outside off. Chandimal is sitting inside the crease after that bouncer, and just leaves the bat to fry. The edge is taken. Good disciplined persistence from Australia on a flat track 77/4
View dismissal AD Mathews c MEK Hussey b Bollinger 35 87 62 1 0 56.45
40.5 Another blow to Sri Lanka. Mathews is looking to go over extra cover, but this is pitched short of a length, and is just not the length for that shot. Ends up slicing it square on the off side, where deep cover runs around and takes a safe catch 159/7
View dismissal BMAJ Mendis c Bollinger b Lee 5 15 9 0 0 55.55
39.3 Lovely slower bouncer, 121ks, well directed too, cramps him up. Mendis goes for the pull, gets just a tame top edge, and short fine leg does the rest 151/6
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c Clarke b Watson 34 47 31 3 1 109.67
49.3 Clarke takes the catch now. Short of a length, Kula has an almighty heave at it, gets a leading edge, which stays forever in the sky, and Clarke completes a running catch from cover 208/10
View dismissal SL Malinga c Ponting b Bollinger 0 9 2 0 0 0.00
42.3 weak shot from Malinga. Backs away and pushes at this length ball away from the body, straight to Ponting at point. Bollinger points skywards, Malinga looks down at ground as he walks back 173/8
View dismissal HMRKB Herath lbw b Johnson 9 17 13 0 0 69.23
46.5 late swing for Johnson, accurate too, this pitches middle and off, and swings in, beats the bat, hits the pad for a pretty straightforward decision for Tony Hill 195/9

View dismissal SR Watson b Malinga 43 87 51 4 1 84.31
19.5 the bat-pad gap is created this time! Clatter behind Watson. Noise in the stands again. This is full and straight, starts around off, tails in late, Watson looks for a drive down the ground, but is beaten by the swing. Middle and leg stumps are disturbed 104/2
View dismissal BJ Haddin c †Sangakkara b Kulasekara 7 9 7 1 0 100.00
1.6 Sanga has taken a special catch standing up! Haddin attempts another big drive on the ump, this one doesn't swing as much as he expects it to, takes the outside edge, and straight into Sanga's gloves. Not a big deflection, but still a superb catch when you are standing up to a quick. There was a puff of dust when the ball pitched 10/1
