28 August 2016 - day/night match (50-over match)
  Sri Lanka innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal MD Gunathilaka b Starc 5 6 5 0 0 100.00
0.6 90.8 mph, bowled. There is Starc's customary first-over wicket. What a delivery again. Fuller than a good length - the ideal length. Gunathilaka is neither forward nor back, so he tentatively pokes at the length. Since there is no swing, the ball carries on towards the inside edge, kisses that edge and rattles into middle stump. Beaten by the length actually of that 6/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Bailey b Zampa 42 84 65 5 0 64.61
18.6 51.0 mph, he's gone off a full toss and that's that for Dilshan's ODI career! He came down the track and chipped the low full toss to midwicker where Bailey had to jump a little to catch it over his head. A few handhakes from some of the Australian fielders, a pat from Chandimal and Dilshan immediately takes his helmet off and walks off with his arms aloft for the crowd. A standing ovation from the spectators, emotional scenes there 96/3
View dismissal BKG Mendis c Warner b Hazlewood 4 12 2 1 0 200.00
3.2 86.7 mph, got 'im this time. A superb comeback from Hazlewood. Drags his length back this time, close to off. Mendis has to defend, and although the ball doesn't move, it still takes Mendis' outside edge. Carries low to Warner at second slip who dives in front and completes a quality catch. SL in some trouble 23/2
View dismissal LD Chandimal c Zampa b Faulkner 102 213 130 7 0 78.46
49.2 69.4 mph, nice catch from Zampa at long-on to end the innings. A slower ball on off, Chandimal comes down and swings through the line, the ball goes up, stays up for quite a while, but Zampa sets himself under it at long-on and takes a good catch. 226/10
View dismissal AD Mathews* lbw b Zampa 2 12 4 0 0 50.00
20.2 47.2 mph, loud appeal for lbw and Aleem Dar has raised the finger, it wasn't plumb, and Mathews reviews. It wasn't as flighted, pitched somewhere around leg stump, replays will confirm that, and straightened to beat Mathews' inside edge before hitting him in front of leg. Here comes ball tracking - pitches in line, straightens enough to hit him in line and is hitting the stumps. Mathews has to go, Zampa at it again 103/4
View dismissal DM de Silva c Marsh b Faulkner 12 39 30 1 0 40.00
29.4 80.4 mph, he tries to accelerate and hands a catch to mid-on, good work there by Shaun Marsh! Came down the track and took the ball on the full, stroking the ball in the air and Marsh dived to his left after a few steps to grab it with both hands 133/5
View dismissal MDKJ Perera b Starc 11 32 20 1 0 55.00
35.5 89.5 mph, too good! Another swinging yorker does for Kusal. Tailed in on leg, Kusal misses his flick and the ball hits leg stump. Some discernible late movement back in. May have ricocheted off the pads, and then into the stumps 154/6
View dismissal NLTC Perera c Marsh b Hastings 9 12 10 0 0 90.00
38.1 75.2 mph, taken! What was that from Perera. Pace off the ball from Hastings, Perera went through with his wild hoick and only succeeded in slogging it into the hands of deep square leg. Lovely bowling, wily change in pace. 165/7
View dismissal S Prasanna c Bailey b Zampa 3 12 7 0 0 42.85
40.6 56.3 mph, picks out deep midwicket. Filthy half-tracker on off, Prasanna rocks back and nails his pull, but straight to Bailey who sets himself under and takes it. Not the way Zampa would have wanted to get that 178/8
View dismissal MDK Perera c Warner b Hastings 17 33 21 1 1 80.95
47.5 82.6 mph, gone this time. A short delivery on off, bouncer. Dilruwan stays in his crease and checks his pull straight to Warner at midwicket. Didn't keep it down, didn't go after it. Lobbed a catch instead 217/9

  Australia innings (target: 227 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal DA Warner* c Dilshan b Mathews 10 21 12 1 0 83.33
4.5 79.4 mph, yes, it's him! Dilshan takes a superb diving catch at point and yes, it's Warner who has to go! Looked like a bit of extra bounce outside off as Warner checked his jab but did it with hard hands, the bounce takes a good meat of the bat to fly towards point where Dilshan dives low to his left to get both his hands under the ball 31/1
View dismissal AJ Finch lbw b Aponso 30 32 29 3 1 103.44
7.3 50.3 mph, big big appeal from Aponso, Aleem Dar raises the finger, Finch has a short chat and walks off without reviewing it. This was looped towards the stumps and Finch tried to defend by covering them all, maybe he played for the turn but the ball angled in and trapped him right in front. Was it headed a bit too much towards leg though? 42/2
View dismissal SE Marsh c Chandimal b Mathews 1 20 8 0 0 12.50
8.5 70.9 mph, chipped in the air, taken at mid-off! But is it clean? Shaun Marsh wants to hang around as the third umpire is called in and the soft signal is out. It was a fullish delivery outside off, Marsh chipped it half-heartedly down to mid-off where Chandimal dives forward and takes it. A lot of replays being shown for the third umpire, looks like he has got his fingers just under the ball, it's not 100% clear but I think it's out. And the crowd roars as the umpire raises his finger! 44/3
View dismissal GJ Bailey b Prasanna 70 142 99 5 0 70.70
41.6 51.6 mph, it's gone through, Bailey is bowled! The conventional legspinning delivery with some revs on it, it was flighted on leg sutmp and Bailey leaned forward to defend for the turn, bat in front of middle, but it didn't turn and deflected off the front pad to the stumps instead 204/6
View dismissal TM Head b MDK Perera 36 49 48 5 0 75.00
22.2 bowled this time. A wrong shot. And he will not be happy with that. Slides on with the arm from outside off, comes back in and Head goes back to cut. A cry of anguish as missed that. Big wicket. Picked the wrong delivery to go back to. 106/4
View dismissal MS Wade st †MDKJ Perera b MDK Perera 42 68 46 3 0 91.30
38.1 49.6 mph, another stumping appeal and this time the finger has gone up, third umpire not required! Wade tried the sweep yet again but did not connect at all, by the time the ball reached Kusal, Wade was well outside the crease, almost losing balance, with the stretch and Kusal whipped the bails off by the time Wade could drag it back 187/5
View dismissal JP Faulkner c MDK Perera b Aponso 4 19 13 0 0 30.76
42.4 46.4 mph, oh my, Faulkner has holed out to deep square leg, the crowd comes alive! Where have these people come from? Unnecessary shot from Faulkner, sweeping the length ball against the turn to the leg side and Dilruwan only had to go a bit to his left to take that comfortably, well inside the boundary 206/7
JW Hastings not out 5 19 7 0 0 71.42
View dismissal MA Starc c Prasanna b de Silva 12 11 8 1 1 150.00
44.6 51.0 mph, gone this time, straight to long-on, yes you read that right! One shot after another Starc has been hitting to long-on, and this time he connects well to hand it to Prasanna who had to go a bit to his right. Good catch in the end 222/8
