  Sri Lanka innings (20 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal TM Dilshan b Faulkner 6 12 10 0 0 60.00
2.5 71.9 mph, slower ball again, and this time he bowls him! Dilshan tried to pull that one, but it didn't bounce as high as he expected. It takes an under edge and clips off stump. I think the slowness of the ball did him in there. 15/1
View dismissal MDKJ Perera c Bailey b Maxwell 15 30 17 3 0 88.23
6.4 55.3 mph, well caught, running back. Perera is down the track, but beaten in the flight by Maxwell and he hits that high. Bailey runs back from cover to take a difficult catch over his shoulder. Perera perishes again, having promised much early on. Sri Lanka need a partnership here though. 39/3
View dismissal LD Chandimal c Bailey b Laughlin 5 11 9 1 0 55.55
5.3 86.4 mph, that is an awful looking shot. Short outside off stump, Chandimal tries to heave that over mid on with a cross-bat shot, but is too late on the stroke, and ends up scooping it to Bailey at mid off. Didn't look too comfortable, despite the boundary 33/2
DPMD Jayawardene not out 61 61 45 5 2 135.55
View dismissal BMAJ Mendis c Faulkner b Doherty 25 32 24 3 0 104.16
15.2 60.4 mph, holes out to long off. Doherty bowls that a bit flatter, and Mendis runs down the pitch, but can't get under it. He hits it hard and flat, and straight to Faulkner at long off 102/4

  Australia innings (target: 122 runs from 15 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Finch lbw b BAW Mendis 7 17 6 1 0 116.66
4.1 58.4 mph, big shout and that is pretty much plumb. I think that was the googly, pitching on off and turning towards middle. Finch goes for a big sweep, he misses and the ball strikes him on the thigh, in line with middle and off. Simple decision for the umpire. 20/2
View dismissal DA Warner c NLTC Perera b Kulasekara 7 5 6 1 0 116.66
1.3 76.5 mph, beautifully bowled by Kulasekara. That was right on a good length and moving away off the seam, Warner tried to hit that through the leg side, but the movement means he got a leading edge which lobs to Thisara Perera at mid off. Sri Lanka silence Warner early. 10/1
SE Marsh not out 47 68 40 2 2 117.50
View dismissal GJ Bailey* c MDKJ Perera b NLTC Perera 45 48 36 4 0 125.00
14.2 85.2 mph, oh dear, Bailey. It was a low full toss on the stumps, but Bailey couldn't get enough on it and it sails to Kushal Perera at deep midwicket. That has swung the match significantly towards Sri Lanka. 106/3
