    30.3 finally finally they get Gilchrist out, Fernando bangs one short, Gilchrist swivels and tries to pull even though the length isn't short enough for the stroke, he gets a top edge and skies it straight to midwicket where Chamara silva takes an easy catch, Gilchrist leaves to a rousing ovation, he;s played one of the great World Cup innings 224/2
    22.5 Finally! Mahela Jayawardene pulls off a smart catch at cover and Hayden has to go. He tried to club it over the short extra-cover fielder but Mahela was waiting there. He timed his jump well and pulled off a double-handed take while in mid-air. Hayden's useful hand comes to an end. It was a 55-ball 38 but nobody will complain when your partner is going bananas at the other end. 172/1

    36.2 bowled him! Shane Watson moves across and tries to play a cheeky paddle sweep over short fine leg, he played it extremely well against New Zealand, but Malinga is too quick for him, Watson doesn't make contact and the ball hits middle and leg stump 266/4

    2.1 That's more swing, and that's all over. Short of a length and Tharanga doesn't know whether to go forward or back. Stands rooted to the crease and simply pushes his bat limply, the edge is taken and Gilchrist snaps up a regulation catch behind the stumps. That's the first wicket for Australia and it was all to do with the length. Bracken strikes. 7/1
    22.6 goddim! A terrible shot from Jayasuriya, skipping down the pitch to a fullish delivery which just turned away from him, the ball keeping very low, and his off stump is knocked back 145/3

    25.5 on middle-and-leg and that's a throaty gurgle of a roar for lbw, and it looks like a good shout, and the umpire agrees 156/4
    30.1 comes down and swats the air with a huge swipe aiming for midwicket. Misses it completely and the ball plinks into the sticks 190/6
    29.6 on off, quicker than expected, and that was tucked down to third man. Some great work from Clarke and McGrath there, as Dilshan slipped on setting off - a throw heading just towards the stumps, McGrath takes it in front and takes off the bails 188/5
    31.5 nasty ball, especially in this light - a full toss above the waist. But Australia, including McGrath, just smile as Arnold pops up an edge off a pull to Gilchrist... and takes his international bow 194/7
