    27.5 the end of Watson, the flighted googly, Watson tried to hammer it over midwicket, gets a top edge and the ball swirls high, Tharanga gets under it at deep midwicket and pouches it 127/3
    1.6 safe to say that is out, Marsh is bowled by a length delivery coming in, he was looking to clip that to the leg side, he misses the ball, through the bat-pad gap and then crashes into the top of the stumps, before running away to the fine leg boundary 4/1
    13.4 there's the breakthrough, that ball comes on slower than Ponting expected, he was early into the shot, and the ball lobs up towards midwicket, Suraj Randiv jumps forward and snaffles the ball, it was the offcutter from Mathews, not sure Ponting picked it 71/2
    37.6 Eranga has struck, this is a big blow, Clarke is gone, and Australia have two new batsmen at the crease, that was a short of length ball, pitching just outside off, goes on with angle and induces the outside edge, Clarke's patient innings comes to an end 167/5
    32.3 the googly does the job, Hussey looking to drive that one, doesn't read the turn, gets a thin outside edge, Sanga collects and that's another wicket for Sri Lanka, big innings coming up this for David Hussey 146/4
    44.3 what a comeback from Mendis, that one spins in, Hussey doesn't read it and is caught on the back foot as he looks to cut that one, it slips past the bat and into middle and leg stump 210/6
    46.1 and the Australian inninigs has come to a rather rapid end, Mendis gets his third as Haddin tamely chips the ball to mid-off, Australua bowled out for 211, with nearly four overs remaining, two overs ago Australia were 210 for 5 211/10
    45.2 Malinga you beauty, that spot-on yorker is far too good for Johnson, who was striving to get his bat down and keep that out but the ball zips past the batsman's defence and crashes into the bottom of legstump 211/7
    45.3 Malinga is on a hat-trick now, or is Australia going to review this lbw? They have reviewed it. It was a low full toss, swinging dangerously in, the new batsman John Hastings couldn't keep it out, thuds into his pads, struck in front of legstump, umpire upholds the appeal, was it going down? the replay shows it would have taken the outside of leg stump, have to stick with the umpire's call for that, which means Hastings is gone for a golden duck 211/8
    45.4 hat-trick for Malinga, another of those laser-guided low full tosses, Xavier Doherty has no chance, the middle stump is rattled, and Australia are down to 211 for 9, so much for the Powerplay, that's Malinga's third hat-trick in one-dayers, the most anyone has ever taken 211/9

    0.4 Tharanga is gone, Johnson strikes in the first over, short of length ball outside off, Tharanga fishes at it, a thin edge through to the keeper 4/1
    5.3 got him! Pattinson continues to catch the eye in this opening burst, after peppering Dilshan with the short stuff, he slips in a quick full ball, Dilshan is caught on the crease, he inside-edges that onto the pad, and the ball homes in on offstump, superb bowling from Pattinson 33/3
    1.5 A big wicket for Australia, Sangakkara joins Tharanga in the pavilion, he is also drawn towards a short of length ball outside off, top edged to the keeper, Sri Lanka slip to 12 for 2 12/2
    41.6 is there a twist to this game? Mahela is gone, he looked to launch that over mid-off once more, this was a flighted and full delivery, Mahela gets it too high, can't get the distance and his innings end on 71 195/5
    26.3 the end of Silva, this has been a good innings from him, it's the sweep shot that brings about his downfall, a bit of a top edge and John Hastings is waiting for that at deep square leg 144/4
    45.4 Mathews is gone, he wanted to close out the game with a flourish, advancing down the track and looks to club that one, caught at mid-off by Doherty 209/6
