Australia tour of Sri Lanka, 1st T20I: Sri Lanka v Australia at Pallekele, Aug 6, 2011
Sri Lanka won by 35 runs
6 August 2011 - night match (20-over match)

Kulasekara to Watson, OUT, Bowled him! This inswinger is perfect. Short of driving length, and starts well outside off so it can hit top of off. Watson tries to smash it through the off side, leaves the bat-pad gap open, and is bowled. ah, there is an inside edge too, which drags the ball to top of middle

SR Watson b Kulasekara 10 (10m 9b 0x4 1x6) SR: 111.11

Australia 18/1   DA Warner 6* (5b 1x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 1.2-0-10-1

Perera to Marsh, OUT, Gets a wicket in his first over! This one turned away too, beats an attempt to play it to on, hits him in front. Interesting to see where it pitched. Pitches middle leg, hits him in front of leg after straightening. Would have gone on to hit the leg stumps, I think

SE Marsh lbw b Perera 4 (9m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Australia 39/2   DA Warner 21* (11b 3x4 1x6)   MDK Perera 0.3-0-4-1

Perera to Hussey, OUT, Timber... this is top bowling... From round the stumps, angled away, pitching outside off, and back through the gate to hit the top of middle

DJ Hussey b Perera 6 (8m 8b 1x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Australia 49/3   DA Warner 25* (13b 4x4 1x6)   MDK Perera 1.1-0-5-2

Perera to White, OUT, Perera is running through them here. White goes for a huge slog sweep. This is an offbreak from round the stumps, slow through the air, pitches outside off, turns in, beats the shot, and hits the off stump. Perera is blase about it

CL White b Perera 7 (8m 7b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Australia 63/4   DA Warner 32* (18b 5x4 1x6)   MDK Perera 2.1-0-9-3

Herath to Smith, OUT, the left-armer's legbreak has done him in. Smith has been jumping out of the crease with no clue as to what to do next, and this team the ball makes its way through the gap between bat and pad. Stumped

SPD Smith st †Sangakkara b Herath 12 (11m 17b 0x4 0x6) SR: 70.58

Australia 89/5   DA Warner 46* (26b 5x4 2x6)   HMRKB Herath 1.2-0-6-1

Herath to Warner, 1 run, OUT, it's not raining, it's pouring on the Aussies... this was full on the pads, was flicked to deep midwicket, Haddin wanted to, Warner initially did, but then didn't. Too late to send him back. Sold Haddin down the river

BJ Haddin run out 7 (7m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 77.77

Australia 103/6   DA Warner 53* (30b 6x4 2x6)   HMRKB Herath 2.3-0-11-1

Kulasekara to Warner, OUT, Gone. Kulasekara has been bowling them wide, two of them have been called wide, Warner stretches and finally gets bat to it... and finds extra cover, and it's the same man who dropped him earlier - Dilshan

DA Warner c Dilshan b Kulasekara 53 (62m 31b 6x4 2x6) SR: 170.96

Australia 105/7   MG Johnson 0* (3b)   KMDN Kulasekara 2.1-0-21-2

Lakmal to O'Keefe, OUT, Timber. Full, in front of off, O'Keefe swings, misses, hears the death rattle

SNJ O'Keefe b Lakmal 22 (14m 12b 3x4 1x6) SR: 183.33

Australia 144/8   MG Johnson 17* (13b 1x4 1x6)   RAS Lakmal 2.5-0-22-1
