    1.5 suicidal! Wade's gone to a soft dismissal and he can't believe he has holed out in such loose fashion. Pitched a touch further up by Kula, and the ball seemed to come through in slow motion. Wade was on the front foot early and into the drive even as it came on, and popped it up straight and simple to wide mid-off. 5/1
    6.4 David's un-Warneresque innings is over, and Sri Lanka continue to torment Australia. Gentle, probing delivery outside off from Maharoof, it angled away from short of a length as Warner went back to defend. He ended up nicking it straight into Sanga's gloves for a dolly. 27/2
    40.2 Forrest holes out, without quite indulging himself in the post-century celebrations. As always, the slower ball does the job for SL. Mathews held it back, Forrest backed away for a carve, and was early into the loft over the covers and teed it straight up in the air. Simple catch in the deep cover area. 201/4
    38.1 a stunning catch and Clarke's gone. Full ball angling into the pads, Clarke swipes it efficently over midwicket, and he times it well enough to give Thisara on the boundary a chance. And how well he took it.. He ran across and to his front, tumbled forward and plucked the ball just before it hit turf. Sri Lanka will breathe easy ... 181/3
    44.5 Malinga's making his worth apparent. The inch-perfect yorker from hell, full, ram-rod straight and destined to hit the base of the stumps. Michael was looking to play the cheeky dab to third man, but he was messing with the wrong man. Wrong ball in any case. It's through him, and the bails fly off. 243/5

    45.6 a wicket to end a splendid over under the circumstances. Herath holds the length back sending Christan's rampant charge, and slips the ball past his murderous heave to the leg side. Sanga doesn't grasp the ball cleanly, but holds on to break the furniture. 250/6

    26.2 a great ball to end what was promising to become a great innings. Doherty slows up the release, gets the ball to land just short of a length outside off, grip and spin. So far, Mahela has been adept at reaching the pitch and lofting over the off side, or pushing through for singles. This time too he was looking to reach out, but was about a foot away from where the ball landed. It spun sharply, past him as he overbalanced and into Wade's gloves. Out stumped by a classy delivery. 153/3
    7.6 that's the end of Dilshan. Australia stick to the short-ball strategy for him, Dilshan takes on Hilfenhaus' bumper and pulls it in the air. He ends up timing it too well, straight to the man back at deep square leg. 55/1
    13.5 They should really consider renaming this series the Run-out and Leading edge series. Sanga has perished against the run of play, twinkling a leading edge straight to backward point. Christian's trundler angled across at no pace, and did nothing off the pitch. Sanga tried nudging to leg and turned the face too soon. Mistake. Should have really been playing it through the off side with the angle. 90/2
    44.2 Ryano has done the damage, Chandimal pays the price for playing strange strokes under pressure. He walks across the stumps to a straight ball and tries to dink it square. Harris kept it straight and full and rapped him dead in front of the stumps. End of a good innings, but Chandimal needs to learn how to finish the job. 243/5
    36.5 Gets across his stumps, gets cheeky and gets out. Powerplay does the damage. Sri Lanka were strolling home, but Thirimanne tries to make the Powerplay count, and perishes. He's lapped a length ball straight to short fine leg. Australia have a vital opening. 202/4
    48.3 Gone! Mathews has perished trying another big shot. He was trying to haul the length ball over the extra cover area, but the slower ball hoodwinked him into another miscue. It landed in long-off's hands as he came across. 267/7
    45.5 uh oh, Maharoof implodes. He gets inside the line of a short ball slipping into the body and plays a ginger uppish pull in the air. He almost got away with it too, but Harris managed to back-pedal quickly from about 20 yards in front of the ropes at 45 degrees and hold on to a well-judged catch. 250/6
