    21.6 direct hit and he's gone! Excellent work by Dilshan there, Wade sliced it down towards short point and wasn't sure about the single, Hussey was off the blocks but Dilshan was too quick for him, picks up and throws flat at the stumps in one motion, just short of his ground and the third umpire takes a look 119/3
    13.6 Sri Lanka will be mighty relieved at that because it's Warner! Things get a little tasty as Maharoof walks past the batsman, Maharoof angles it across the left-hander, the batsman gets a thick outside edge and it's well taken by Sanga falling to his left, Maharoof says something to Warner who gives him a stare, it all lasted a couple of seconds 75/1
    20.4 Herath manages to hang on! Dilshan bowls round the wicket and flat, Watson is on his knee and slogs him, the ball travels quickly and flat and Herath runs to his right at deep midwicket, nearly over-runs the ball but manages to hang on on the dive, the ball could easily have bounced off his hands but he ensure he got his body behind it 115/2

    31.6 hits him a touch high but Asad Rauf's convinced! Maharoof gets it to nip back in off the pitch, the ball skids through and hits his thigh but Rauf was convinced with the height, took a few seconds before raising the finger 151/6
    26.4 Forrest looked quite flummoxed there! Herath got it to grip and Forrest was looking to drive towards mid-off but the ball spun just a bit and hit the off stump, Forrest playing down the wrong line 135/5
    37.3 Maharoof strikes again! He continues bowling the slower ball, Christian chips down the track and has to check his shot, ends up spooning it straight to mid-off, Jayawardene takes it 177/7
    49.2 knocks off the leg bail! Kula bowls another yorker on the leg stump, Lee makes room to flay that anywhere but the ball hits his boot and shaves the leg stump 231/9
    45.5 McKay perishes trying to go over the top on the on side, he gets on his knee for the slog and he ends up hitting it flat to Maharoof at deep midwicket, he falls forward and takes it 217/8

    49.3 not the best start to Lyon's ODI career with the bat! Kulasekara bowls it full on the pads and Lyon makes room and chips it high over midwicket and Senanayake the substitute times the dive well and takes the catch 231/10

    9.3 Australia are on a roll here! McKay deceived him with one that nipped back in from outside the off stump and bowled him through the gate, Jayawardene played down the wrong line and the ball clipped his off stump 53/4
    2.6 soft dismissal! Dilshan tries to turn the face of the bat and work it to the on side but he gets a leading edge that lobs to cover, always a risky proposition if you try and fetch the ball from outside off 23/1
    6.2 Lee brings Australia right back in! Loose shot by Sangakkara, pitched up outside off and angling away slightly, he half-heartedly drives at it and the edge flies off the toe of the bat and Watson cups it over his head at first slip 47/2
    7.3 and there is no escaping the dreaded finger this time around! Fuller ball on the off and middle line. Chandimal leans across and looks to flick it. He misjudges the length and is struck on the pads.The umpire doesn't waste a second in raising the index finger. Sri Lanka does need the batting depth today 52/3
    26.4 Thirimanne's resistance comes to an end! Watson pitches it up outside the off stump and Thirimanne can't resist slicing it in the air and it travels low to Warner at point 113/5
    45.6 big relief for Australia! Angles it close to the off stump and Tharanga tries to drive and gets a thick outside edge and Wade takes the catch low, the captain himself gets the vital breakthrough 204/8
    35.5 that's another failure for Kapugedera and Australia edge closer! There was no room for the batsman to steer it to the off side and he ended up getting a thick edge that was taken neatly by Wade falling to his right 142/6
    38.5 Kula's cameo comes to an end! He makes room to mow Lee over the on side, Lee follows him and fires it full wide of the leg stump and he can only scoop it down to mid-on, easily taken at the edge of the ring 172/7

    46.3 Australia are one more death rattle away from the Cup! Herath decides to go for broke over the on side, swings and the ball pegs back the off stump from round the wicket 205/9
    48.5 McKay hits the timber, he takes five and Australia take the CB Series! He bowls it full and straight on the stumps, Malinga exposes all three of them, fails to get his bat down and the ball hits the middle stump 215/10
