END OF OVER:

End of match: Comprehensive win for Australia. Outsmarted Sri Lanka in all departments, with a special mention for the fielding. Three run-outs, all specialist batsmen. Chandimal was the positive today for Sri Lanka, but had it not been for those run outs, this could have gotten closer. That's something SL need to address before their next match. Today was a communications disaster.

Richard : "Sorry. What was that about an Aussie B-side?"

It can't be too bad a team when you have the likes of Hughes, Khawaja and Finch in probably the form of his life. He didn't perform today but his time will come.

Phillip Hughes is the Man of the Match. We don't have coverage of the presentation.

Otherwise that's it from here. There's still the India-England ODI and the SA v NZ Test to keep you occupied. We're back for the second ODI at Adelaide in two days. Same time. Thanks for your company. Cheers!

McKay to Mendis, OUT, it's all over, at the stroke of the 40th over! Catching practice for Haddin, Mendis gets a length ball which he presumably wants to dab to third man, only managed a thick edge, Haddin would have caught that with his eyes shut

McKay to Kulasekara, OUT, Bailey seems to be catching everything, very soft dismissal, short of a length, Kula shaped to smash that over mid-on, miscued and it lobs to Bailey
