    8.3 Finch can't clear the long boundary, Siriwardana pouches it at the edge of the long-off fence. Prasanna celebrates the wicket with a dab. Munaweera might be relieved, or has the damage been done already? Finch looks to loft this tossed-up legbreak over the fielder after backing away outside leg. No dice. Ends up slicing a catch 79/1
    18.3 thigh-high full-toss, Klinger swats it away through square leg. Klinger commits to two. Shanka swoops down on the ball from deep square leg and throws it flat to Kusal Mendis. He collects it and swipes the bails off to catch Klinger short on the second. He raises his bat and walks back for 62 180/4
    13.6 Prasanna clings onto the catch, running back from point. Lands awkwardly on his elbow. Good length ball on off stump, Dunk looks to slog over midwicket. He ends up skewing it in the air. Prasanna hangs onto a swirling catch 128/2
    18.2 Kapu overruns the ball but hangs onto the catch at long-off. Low full-toss outside off, Head loses his shape, swings and holes out in the deep 179/3

    18.6 Kapu pulls off a cracking catch now. He dashes in from long-on, dives forward, and takes it. Turner backs away outside leg. Malinga chases him and cramps him with a full-toss which is dragged away to Kapu. He did well to attack the catch 182/5
    19.2 Australia have lost four wickets for five runs. Third catch for Kapu in the deep. Faulkner can't get hold of this full-toss outside off. He miscues it to long-on 184/6

    8.1 and he strikes with his first ball! Munaweera can't clear long-on. Pushed through on the stumps from around the wicket, Munaweera after backing away lofts it. Does not get enough power behind it and holes out. Turner gets into a side-on position and takes it 69/3
    3.4 Tharanga can't clear the long boundary. Holes out to Richardson at the edge of the deep midwicket boundary. Dug in short and outside off. Tharanga pulls well but can't get it over the man in the deep. Australia find some breathing space 41/1
    7.3 third slower ball of this over, Mendis picked it, and slogged it into the hands of deep midwicket. Full and angled in from over the wicket, Mendis drops to one knee and swings it to Cummins 68/2
    9.3 Asela has been pinned lbw. Umpire Wilson raises his finger. No heroics from Asela today. Flat, non-turning ball on off, skids on and raps him on the knee-roll in front of off and middle. The tracker returns three reds 76/4
    16.3 back of the hand slower ball on off stump, grips in the surface. Siriwardana does not pick this either - the third slower one of the over. He eyes up the leg side with a mow but only manages to sky it in the air. Faulker completes the return catch. Siriwardana goes and with it SL's chances? 138/8
    11.4 This was about 20ks quicker than the previous ball. Beats Kapu for pace. Quick fizzer, rushes onto Kapu. He is very late on it. Timbaaah. Why was Zampa left out of the previous game? 91/5
    11.6 Zampa is turning it on at the Adelaide Oval. Looks like the flipper from the front of the hand, rushes onto the batsman and pings the pad in front of off stump. Finch hugs Zampa and Australia celebrate 91/6
    14.5 Prasanna picks out the man at deep backward square leg, joins the long line of Sri Lankans who have holed out in the deep today, this was angling down leg once more, Prasanna swung at it and connected well, but not well enough 120/7

    17.2 full and outside off, Malinga drives it to mid-off. He is pretty late to go for the single. Finch swoops down on the ball and nails a direct hit at the non-striker's end. Malinga, who was just ambling along for the single, is caught well short 140/9
    17.6 Two run-outs to wrap up Sri Lanka's innings. Some consolation for Australia. Short on off, Sanjaya backs away outside leg and skews the ball over point. Sanjaya and Kulasekara push for two so that the latter could have the strike next over. Dunk throws the ball to Paine who flips the bails off. Sanjaya can't make it in time 146/10
