Australia in Sri Lanka T20I Series - 1st T20I

Sri Lanka v Australia

Sri Lanka won by 35 runs

2.5

Lee to Dilshan, SIX, It's a harsh harsh game... This is a superb bouncer, quick, at the throat, Dilshan is late into the shot, but the top edge sails past the pulled-in boundary ropes behind fine leg

Sri Lanka 22/1   TM Dilshan 9* (5b 1x6)   B Lee 1.5-0-16-1

17.1

Watson to Dilshan, SIX, don't gape disbelievingly when you read this: Dilshan has slog-swept Watson for a six. Watson can't believe it either. Just brilliant premeditation and execution

Sri Lanka 156/3   TM Dilshan 67* (44b 8x4 2x6)   SR Watson 3.1-0-25-1

17.6

Watson to Dilshan, SIX, another slog-sweep! Low full toss, Dilshan's front leg gets out of the way, and he lofts this over midwicket. Wonder if Watson regrets that throw at Dilshan's face

Sri Lanka 172/3   TM Dilshan 82* (48b 10x4 3x6)   SR Watson 4-0-41-1

19.2

Johnson to Dilshan, SIX, old-fashioned Twenty20 slog, helps that this is a length ball, and he opens up the stance to send it over long-on. Into the 90s now. Hmm

Sri Lanka 184/3   TM Dilshan 90* (53b 10x4 4x6)   MG Johnson 3.2-0-33-1

19.3

Johnson to Dilshan, SIX, This is absolute toying around with the bowling. Dilshan stands with an open stance, across the stumps, he wants to go over leg side, and a clue less Johnson serves up a gentle long hop, and is pulled out of sight

Sri Lanka 190/3   TM Dilshan 96* (54b 10x4 5x6)   MG Johnson 3.3-0-39-1
