10.5 51.7 mph, outside edge! Mendis strikes in his first over of his one-day comeback, it was bowled off the back of the hand, Finch was prodding forward, bounced a bit more and took the edge, no doubts about that 53/1

15.4 from Dilshan, Appeal fora run out and Khawaja is in trouble! And he's gone! Schoolboy error by Khawaja, credit to Jeevan Mendis for this one, Khawaja worked it towards short midwicket and set off, he turned back and had to dive at the crease, he made the mistake of not sliding with his bat face on the ground, Mendis swooped down and under-armed the throw to the keeper Chandimal, top stuff by Mendis 72/2
View dismissal GJ Bailey* c BMAJ Mendis b Mathews 89 118 79 8 1 112.65

View dismissal TM Dilshan run out (Khawaja) 51 104 70 4 0 72.85
25.1 from Johnson, Direct hit and Dilshan looks in trouble! Yes he is a mile out, it was a risky run, he pushed it towards mid-off and set off, Khawaja attacked the ball, picked up and hit the stumps direct at the bowler's end, the Australians all knew it 111/3

35.4 82.9 mph, superb catch by Haddin! McKay pitched it up and bowled it wide of the off stump getting him to drive, thick outside edge and Haddin timed his dive to his right very well and plucked it one-handed.

View dismissal AD Mathews run out (Maxwell) 12 17 14 0 0 85.71
29.2 Doherty to Chandimal, Appeal for a run-out and Mathews is in trouble and the direct hit sends him back!

View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne run out (Maxwell/†Haddin) 0 1 0 0 0 -
29.3 Doherty to Chandimal, Two run outs off successive balls would you believe it! It's that man Maxwell again. Chandinal dropped it towards short cover and set off, hesitation in the running, Maxwell runs to his right, picks up and in one movement fires the ball to Haddin, Thirimanne is not in the frame 128/5
View dismissal BMAJ Mendis c Bailey b Johnson 20 23 18 1 1 111.11

38.5 79.3 mph, straight to mid-off! It was the off cutter from Johnson, he makes room and spoons it flat and fast to Bailey who takes a low catch 194/8

39.6 75.5 mph, it's all over, at the stroke of the 40th over! Catching practice for Haddin, Mendis gets a length ball which he presumably wants to dab to third man, only managed a thick edge, Haddin would have caught that with his eyes shut 198/10
