Commentary

So, that's that. Australia wrap up a ten-wicket victory with almost half of their overs to spare, and it is they who march on to the semi-finals where they will be joined by Pakistan, South Africa (barring miracles) and either New Zealand or India.

Sri Lanka's bowlers were on a hiding to nothing once their batsmen had capitulated. Perhaps they were still scarred by their mauling in the World Cup final ... who knows. It was pretty comprehensive either way.

"We were not very consistent, especially with the bat," says Mahela Jayawardene. "We started really well [in the tournament] but the momentum wasn't there for us."

Adam Gilchrist is delighted with his team's performance. "A lot of teams would have liked us to be knocked out today. Hopefully they are a little nervous now."

"Our fielders and our bowlers were outstanding. To chase on that wicket ... it's getting really tired and it would have been difficult. Our bowlers definitely won that match for us."

"We're just happy - we're into the cut-throat part of the competition now. We can enjoy it now it's cut-throat time."

So there we go. We've been Andrew Miller and Jenny Thompson, with Martin Williamson on bulletin duty. Next up is Bangladesh against Pakistan at Cape Town, followed by the big one - India against South Africa at Durban.

Dilshan to Hayden, 1 run, finds the gap on the leg side, and that's Hayden's half-century - his third of the campaign. There's no stopping the ICC World One-Day Player of the Year

Dilshan to Hayden, FOUR runs, thumped this time, with a free swing of the arms. That's pure muscle and deep cover had no chance

Dilshan to Hayden, no run, on the spot and driven hard into the covers. No way through just yet though
9.3
0
Dilshan to Hayden, no run, a rarety - a swing and a miss. Hayden is sizing up a quick kill now
