ICC Champions Trophy - 12th match, Group A

Australia v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 20 runs

6.1

Malinga to Maxwell, 1 wide, starts off with a slower-ball yorker, but he misses his direction, it's down the leg side

6.1

Malinga to Maxwell, 2 runs, he makes room and tries to slam it over long-on, but hits it high, really high and it comes down in the vacant region at wide long on

6.2

Malinga to Maxwell, FOUR, slower delivery on a length and what does big show do? He slams it down the ground. Mid-off had no chance

6.3

Malinga to Maxwell, OUT, no answers to this one from Malinga! He must have played these a few times in Mumbai, but he hasn't learnt much. It was a slower ball yorker and Maxwell, who was making room, missed it completely. The leg stump takes a beating

GJ Maxwell b Malinga 32 (25m 20b 5x4 1x6) SR: 160.00

6.4

Malinga to Voges, 1 wide, he attempts a slower yorker again, but this one is wide down the leg side..

Malinga to Bailey, 1 run, back of length delivery, but this one is on the pads and Voges picks up his first runs to fine leg

6.6

Malinga to Voges, no run, he bowls another full slower delivery, the batsman watches it carefully and defends it down the ground

Australia 62/3   SL Malinga 1-0-10-1

8.1

Malinga to Voges, 1 run, he bowls a length ball, the batsman stays in the crease and pushes it in the gap at cover for a single

8.2

Malinga to Bailey, 2 leg byes, loud appeal for lbw, but that was a ridiculous appeal! That full-toss was clearly heading down the leg side. The batsman was beaten by the lack of pace on that though

8.3

Malinga to Bailey, OUT, exactly the same delivery and this time it results in a wicket! Kula is on fire. He was there at short fine leg and fires in a flat throw to catch Bailey well short of the crease. The batsman was stealing a leg-bye there.

GJ Bailey run out 4 (17m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

8.4

Malinga to Voges, no run, a 123 kph yorker to the new man, who just gets his bat down in time
