ICC Champions Trophy - 12th match, Group A

Australia v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 20 runs

13.3

Herath to Wade, 2 leg byes, loud loud appeal from Sanga as the batsman gets hit on the pads with a turning ball. Herath went over the wicket to the left-hander and got the ball to turn in from outside off. the batsman tried to tickle it to the leg side, but got hit on the pads. Sri Lanka call for a review, but that one just hit the batsman outside the line.. That would have hit the leg stump though

13.4

Herath to Wade, no run, he comes down the pitch to a tossed up delivery wide outside off, defends to off

13.5

Herath to Wade, 1 run, he comes forward and works it away to square leg for a single

Australia 84/5   MS Wade 1* (3b)

14.1

Mathews to Wade, no run, he bowls a slower delivery on a length outside off, the batsman comes forward and defends to off

14.2

Mathews to Wade, FOUR, cracking shot by Wade! He jumped out on this slower delivery, made room as he did so, and timed it through point

14.3

Mathews to Wade, no run, another slower delivery that hits the pad as the batsman misses his flick, Angelo appeals, but that pitched outside leg

14.4

Mathews to Wade, FOUR, he comes down the pitch again and manages to drag the short of length delivery through backward square leg for a boundary. Not in full control of that shot

14.5

Mathews to Wade, no run, slower delivery on the middle stump line, the batsman comes forward and pushes it to cover

14.6

Mathews to Wade, no run, he tries to whack this through off side, but is beaten by the slowness of that ball

Australia 92/5   MS Wade 9* (9b 2x4)

15.3

Herath to Wade, no run, now Wade comes out of the crease but is not to the pitch of the ball, defends it back to the bowler

15.4

Herath to Wade, 1 run, tossed up outside off, the batsman sweeps it from there and drags it to deep square leg

15.6

Herath to Wade, SIX, this one is massive massive hit! it was tossed up outside off and the batsman jumped out of the crease to launch it way way over the sight screen

Australia 101/5   MS Wade 16* (12b 2x4 1x6)

16.2

Malinga to Wade, 1 run, he walks across the stumps but gets a yorker wide outside off, the batsman blocks it out towards off and takes a single

16.4

Malinga to Wade, no run, now fires in on Wade's boots, the batsman gets his foot out of the way and blocks it back to the bowler

16.5

Malinga to Wade, FOUR, oh beautifully smacked over midwicket! It was a short delivery on the body and Wade was quick to swivel and pull it hard over the infield

16.6

Malinga to Wade, 1 run, fired on to the pads, but the batsman digs it out towards long on for a single

Australia 109/5   MS Wade 22* (16b 3x4 1x6)

17.1

Kulasekara to Wade, FOUR, length delivery wide outside off and Wade smashes it over extra cover, but this is a big outfield. It teases the man from deep extra cover, who dives, but is not able to save that boundary

17.2

Kulasekara to Wade, 2 runs, that was a stinger! Angelo at extra cover gets hands to it diving full length to his left, but that was hit very hard and it is not fair to put that as a drop

17.3

Kulasekara to Wade, 1 run, he tries to whack this length ball, but inside edges back down the pitch. The non-striker wants a single and runs through, Wade starts belatedly and runs along with the ball and there is a mid-pitch collision between Kula and Wade...Kula goes down, Wade makes it to the other end. Kula looks at the umpire, but I think Wade was running in a straight line

17.6

Kulasekara to Wade, no run, he comes down the pitch but Kula bowls it full and wide outside off and beats the bat

Australia 117/5   MS Wade 29* (20b 4x4 1x6)

18.2

Malinga to Wade, 1 run, this time it's the pacy yorker, Wade just pushes it to extra cover for a single

Australia 125/5   MS Wade 31* (22b 4x4 1x6)

19.1

Kulasekara to Wade, OUT, caught at long-off! Wade falls after a brief counter-attacking innings and it sets off the Sri Lankan fielders into wild celebrations. It was a length delivery wide outside off and Wade tried to whack it straight down the ground but got a thick leading edge that ballooned over the infield, but Dilshan at long-off was waiting for it

MS Wade c Dilshan b Kulasekara 31 (29m 23b 4x4 1x6) SR: 134.78

Australia 127/6   MS Wade 31 (23b 4x4 1x6)
