Played at Kennington Oval, London (neutral venue)
17 June 2013 - day/night match (50-over match)

Kulasekara to Watson, OUT, Kula has done it, last match it was with the bat, this time he has removed the dangerman Shane Watson with the ball, the ball angles in towards the stumps, Watson looks to dab it behind point, no footwork from Watson, he misses and the stumps are disturbed, the Sri Lankan fans at The Oval scream to make it known how big a moment this is

SR Watson b Kulasekara 5 (4m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Australia 9/1   PJ Hughes 4* (1b 1x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 0.2-0-0-1

Kulasekara to Hughes, OUT, what sort of shot is that? Hughes guides that off the middle of the bat to the keeper, looking to steer that to third man but he doesn't get enough on it, Australia lose their second, it was a back of a length ball outside off, Hughes tried to be too cute and paid the price

PJ Hughes c †Sangakkara b Kulasekara 13 (23m 10b 3x4 0x6) SR: 130.00

Australia 45/2   GJ Maxwell 21* (15b 3x4 1x6)   KMDN Kulasekara 2.2-0-16-2

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

Australia 59/3   GJ Bailey 1* (2b)   SL Malinga 0.3-0-7-1

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

Australia 69/4   AC Voges 4* (7b)   SL Malinga 1.3-0-11-1

Mathews to Marsh, OUT, a very slow offcutter, it made the batsman wait and wait, Marsh tries to chop it to the off side and played inside the line. The ball knocks the offstump back. Aussies are crumbling

MR Marsh b Mathews 4 (16m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 28.57

Australia 80/5   AC Voges 9* (21b)   AD Mathews 1-0-2-1

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   AC Voges 23* (35b)   KMDN Kulasekara 6.1-0-36-3

Herath to Faulkner, OUT, super catch by Sanga! It was tossed up on off, the batsman wanted to swipe it across the line, it turned and took the toe-end Sanga made it look easy

JP Faulkner c †Sangakkara b Herath 17 (20m 14b 3x4 0x6) SR: 121.42

Australia 163/7   AC Voges 35* (50b)   HMRKB Herath 5-0-26-1

Eranga to Johnson, OUT, another catch for Kula, this one at mid-off. Johnson tries to smash it down the ground again, but this delivery was slightly wider and he didn't reach for it, he got a healthy top-edge and today, Kula is unlikely to make any mistake

MG Johnson c Kulasekara b Eranga 4 (4m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 168/8   AC Voges 36* (52b)   RMS Eranga 4-0-29-1

Herath to Voges, OUT, caught at long-on! The end is nigh, Voges tries to smash it over long-on but played it straight into the hands of Eranga..

AC Voges c Eranga b Herath 49 (111m 62b 2x4 0x6) SR: 79.03

Australia 192/9   CJ McKay 6* (22b)   HMRKB Herath 7.2-0-35-2

Dilshan to McKay, OUT, he catches it this time! Absolute blinder by Dilshan to set off wild celebrations on the ground. The crowd has found its voice! It was another flatter delivery, shorter too and the batsman punched it back.. Dilshan was moving to his right, but the ball was hit to his left at a comfortable height, but he quickly changed direction and plucked it out from nowhere, it was drifting away from him all the time.. Special catch to finally end Australia's resistance

CJ McKay c & b Dilshan 30 (72m 58b 2x4 0x6) SR: 51.72

Australia 233/10   XJ Doherty 15* (37b)   TM Dilshan 3.3-0-11-1
