  Sri Lanka innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal WU Tharanga c †Dhoni b Vinay Kumar 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 beauty from Vinay, Tharanga's troubles in Australia continue, a short of length ball that moves away a touch, Tharanga doesn't bother much about his footwork as he fishes at the ball, nicks it and it's easy for Dhoni, who has to move forward a touch to collect that 0/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan c †Dhoni b Pathan 16 33 23 1 1 69.56
7.1 Irfan has a wicket, with his trademark incutter, Dilshan throws his bat at that one outside off, bottom edges it through to the keeper, Dhoni doesn't bother with appealing, just throws the ball up in the air to celebrate the wicket 28/2
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Gambhir b Ashwin 31 85 56 2 0 55.35
19.4 50.9 mph, leading edge! Sangakkara gives Ashwin the charge, tries to launch him over mid-on but spoons a big leading edge down to point, credit to Ashwin for tossing it up 79/3
View dismissal LD Chandimal run out (Sharma/†Dhoni) 81 118 91 6 1 89.01
37.3 Ashwin to Mathews, Dhoni makes no error this time! What a pity for Chandimal, Mathews dropped it in front of short cover and they have to hurry, the under-arm flick by Rohit is sharp and Dhoni collects and breaks the stumps, the third umpire takes a look 178/5
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* lbw b Vinay Kumar 43 56 49 2 0 87.75
36.2 the bowling change works! Vinay is rewarded for bowling it straight, the ball doesn't bounce as much as Jayawardene expected, hits him fairly low on the pad in front of the stumps as he tries to tuck it away 173/4
View dismissal AD Mathews run out (†Dhoni) 17 41 30 1 0 56.66
46.3 from Pathan, what a waste for Sri Lanka! Mathews made room and swung at a low full toss swinging away from him, he stepped out of his crease to steal a bye but before he could turn around and make his way back Dhoni had under-armed it to the stumps 210/7
View dismissal NLTC Perera c Kohli b Ashwin 5 8 9 0 0 55.55
39.4 55.8 mph, the frustration gets to Perera! He tries to slam it over the infield by staying at the crease, he plays all over it and skies it down to Virat who takes it at deepish mid-off 184/6
View dismissal KMDN Kulasekara c Gambhir b Vinay Kumar 12 39 25 0 0 48.00
49.3 the frustration gets to Kulasekara as he tries to hit out, another slower ball, shorter in length, he top edges the pull down to Kohli at point 232/8
SMSM Senanayake not out 22 18 14 3 0 157.14
View dismissal SL Malinga run out (Raina/†Dhoni) 0 1 0 0 0 -
49.5 Vinay Kumar to Senanayake, slams a full delivery down to midwicket, Senanayake ran the first one hard but Malinga wanted the second to give his partner the strike, Senanayake didn't want the second and Malinga had to turn back, he was well short of his ground once Dhoni broke the stumps, the third umpire takes a look 235/9

View dismissal G Gambhir run out (Kulasekara) 91 168 106 6 0 85.84
40.3 Malinga to Dhoni, Appeal for a run-out! He's gone! Against the run of play, Dhoni pushes it towards mid-on and appears to set off for a run, Gambhir is also off the blocks but there was never a single, he turns around and can't make it before the direct hit by Kulasekara 178/5
View dismissal SR Tendulkar c †Sangakkara b Kulasekara 15 25 24 2 0 62.50
5.6 80.6 mph, Kulasekara gets him! The ball angles it from around the off stump, Kulasekara held the length back slightly and Tendulkar was caught on the drive, big outside edge down to Sangakkara 24/1
View dismissal V Kohli lbw b Perera 15 32 25 1 0 60.00
14.1 50.7 mph, Kohli's trapped playing across the line, the ball lands on the off stump and nips back in slightly, Kohli tries to whip it away but the ball hits him a bit low on the pads, quite straightforward 61/2
View dismissal RG Sharma run out (Jayawardene) 15 30 27 2 0 55.55
21.5 Herath to Gambhir, the direct hit sends him back, he steers it to backward point and calls for the quick single, Jayawardene hits the target at the striker's end and the third umpire takes a look, excellent pick up and throw by the captain 94/3
View dismissal SK Raina c †Sangakkara b Malinga 8 19 19 0 0 42.10
27.4 86.9 mph, very well taken by Sangakkara! Malinga fired it down the leg side and Raina tried to run it down to fine leg, he clipped it off the face of the bat and Sangakkara anticipated well and moved quickly to his right 118/4
MS Dhoni*† not out 58 113 69 3 1 84.05
View dismissal RA Jadeja c Jayawardene b Perera 3 14 10 0 0 30.00
43.3 86.9 mph, the captain sets a fine example again! Perera pitches it up outside the off stump, he shapes to drive through the covers but ends up driving uppishly and Jayawardene dives to his right and takes it inches off the ground 184/6
View dismissal R Ashwin c Senanayake b Malinga 14 21 13 1 0 107.69
47.4 78.4 mph, well that drop didn't cost anything! Yet another slower ball and Ashwin makes room to play the spooned extra cover drive, ends up chipping it straight to extra cover, clever change of pace again does the trick 212/7
View dismissal IK Pathan run out (Mathews) 8 7 5 0 1 160.00
48.4 from Mathews, we have another twist here! Pathan swings and the ball drops on the pitch, he was uncertain whether to run or not but Dhoni was already at the other end, Irfan had to sacrifice his wicket and Angelo had enough time to take aim and hit 223/8
View dismissal R Vinay Kumar run out (Mathews) 1 7 2 0 0 50.00
49.5 from Malinga, we have a run-out now! Vinay makes room and squirts it out to mid-off and sets off, Mathews under-arms it straight at the stumps and there's no need for the 3rd umpire 233/9
