View dismissal MDKJ Perera b Starc 1 5 2 0 0 50.00
0.4 bowled'em! Wicket no.99 for Starc. Lurking behind Saqlain. 141ks, Pretty full again, this time the line is bang on target. On the off stump, angled in. Perera hacks across the line and can't touch it. Starc bursts through the gate and barges into Kusal's castle. Success in his first over for the visitors. The off stump is knocked out. What a sight for a fast bowler! 3/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Smith b Henriques 22 52 27 2 0 81.48
11.1 82.3 mph, The Dilscoop goes awry for Dilshan. Not a happy return for the old pro. Henriques finds some extra bounce outside off, which foils Dilshan's shot. And the ball isn't coming on here. He top-edges it, hit the helmet, and ballooned in the air. Smith runs in from point and settles under the catch 45/2
View dismissal BKG Mendis c Head b Faulkner 67 124 95 6 0 70.52
29.1 75.5 mph, got 'im! One mistake too many for Mendis as he pulls too early, gets a top edge and offers a dolly of a catch - for once where the fielder was. Head at midwicket takes it and Australia celebrate, giving thanks to Faulkner's offcutter slower ball holding in the pitch 124/3
LD Chandimal not out 80 185 118 3 0 67.79
View dismissal AD Mathews* c Head b Faulkner 0 5 4 0 0 0.00
29.5 double-wicket over, and Head should deserves a lot of credit for this one. Takes an outstanding catch at point! Faulkner tempts the drive with a wide half-volley, Mathews takes the bait but should have gone after it harder. Head at point moves nimbly to his left, leaps up and takes it with both hands over his head 124/4
View dismissal DM de Silva c Bailey b Starc 2 15 6 0 0 33.33
32.2 85.9 mph, 100 ODI wickets, and he is the fastest ever to that mark in cricket history! Big, tall, scary fast bowler makes history with a innocuous, pace-less, slow old teaser. Ah, irony. Starc had de Silva reaching outside off, thinking it was up there for a cover drive, but the ball holds in the pitch and pops over to short midwicket. Bailey moves to his right, dives and secures it. Brilliant piece of deception from Starc, and sign that he is evolving. 132/5
View dismissal TAM Siriwardana c Finch b Starc 19 50 26 0 0 73.07
42.4 89.0 mph, good length and outside off, Siriwardana's bottom hand flies off the bat as he chips a catch to mid-off, running to his right. The ball stopped at Siriwardana, who checked his loft hit and simply lobbed a catch to Finch. Stroke making is very difficult on this parched surface 173/6
View dismissal NLTC Perera c †Wade b Faulkner 21 29 14 3 0 150.00
47.4 75.0 mph, that is one heck of a catch from Wade running forward! But the fourth umpire has asked Thisara to wait, the third umpire will be taking a look at this. Thisara was wandering outside off stump for the scoop, Faulkner bowls it shorter and wider to complicate the shot. Desitined to be mistimed and Wade, with excellent presence of mind runs across, and boy is he quick! Had the ball in his sights all through, throws himself after the ball - he needed to, wouldn't have reached it otherwise - and catches it with his arms fully outstretched millimeters off the ground. Replays indicated the ball bounced up, and it did, but it was off Wade's gloves, not the ground. Umpire Gough did well to call that 209/7
View dismissal MDK Perera c Hazlewood b Faulkner 10 8 6 2 0 166.66
49.2 72.5 mph, goes for the lap sweep.... and picks out short fine leg! If he was intending to use the pace of the ball, there was very little on it. A 116 kph fuller ball on leg stump gives Faulkner his fourth 224/8

View dismissal DA Warner c †MDKJ Perera b NLTC Perera 8 29 17 0 0 47.05
7.2 78.0 mph, Perera earns the outside edge, Perera catches it! Warner swipes the turf as he walks back. Nice and full on middle, seams away, looked like Warner shaped to run it down to third man. Does not get enough bat on it. Edges it behind to the keeper. That should taste su-weet for Thisara after being smashed for over 100 in his last List A outing. There was no slip, which tempted Warner 40/1
View dismissal AJ Finch c Mathews b Aponso 56 58 46 7 2 121.73
14.2 52.3 mph, another appeal for caught behind. Not given. Umpire Dar's review. Mathews collected it cleanly. The on-field umpires want to check whether it was a bump ball. Certainly not. TV umpire Gough looks for the nick. There was a noise. It could have come from the bat thudding the ground. No visible deflection. No conclusive evidence, yet. Tight, tight call for Gough. He looks at various replays and rules Finch out. Nice, low take from Mathews. Finch looks disgruntled. Smith chats with the umpires. Aponso has his maiden international scalp. This pitched just outside off and spun sharply at Finch. He flung his bat down and gave an edge to slip. Hmm, not sure if there was an edge, though 79/2
View dismissal SPD Smith* c sub (MD Gunathilaka) b MDK Perera 58 124 92 5 0 63.04
37.5 52.8 mph, superb work at short leg! That was hit off the middle, more so off the middle after Smith had run down the track. Danushka Gunathilaka, the sub, reached to his left, popped the ball up and took it on the rebound all cool-like. Top innings from Smith, but he screams to the heavens for falling so close to the end of the chase. 190/4
View dismissal MS Wade c Dilshan b Sandakan 26 42 34 0 0 76.47
24.6 49.9 mph, Maiden ODI wicket for Sandakan. No turn. Sandakan just throws this up outside off, Wade turns to his favourite sweep. He unfurls the slog sweep now. Middles it straight into the lap of Dilshan at short midwicket. The old fella nonchalantly plucks the catch 128/3
View dismissal GJ Bailey c Sandakan b MDK Perera 39 76 54 3 0 72.22
43.3 54.6 mph, he's helped a short ball, down leg, down the throat of long leg! Bailey walks off looking shell-shocked. He could have had his pick of the ground - and this is a seriously large one - to belt the ball away, instead he gets a top edge and Sandakan takes an easy catch 216/6
View dismissal MC Henriques c sub (MD Gunathilaka) b Sandakan 6 12 7 0 0 85.71
40.1 49.5 mph, pops it straight to short leg! Do Sri Lanka have a chance here? Henriques went back to flick the ball - a shortish one - and he directs it to the fielder under the helmet more for an inside edge off the pad, but Gunathilaka keeps plucking catches off shots hit off the middle 202/5
View dismissal TM Head st †MDKJ Perera b MDK Perera 10 23 17 1 0 58.82
45.3 50.7 mph, Kusal is certain he's stumped Head! And it appears his back foot is in the air even as he tried to push back to safety! Beautiful bowling from Dilruwan, tossed it up just outside off, tempted the batsman forward to defend with hard, searching hands. Just delight for an offspinner to get a man out like that, not to mention the rapid work from the keeper. Kusal is doing a rip-roaring job 222/7
