Australia in Sri Lanka T20I Series - 2nd T20I

Sri Lanka v Australia

Sri Lanka won by 8 runs

7.6

Smith to NLTC Perera, 1 run, full, outside off, clears the front leg, and muscles this to long-on for one

Sri Lanka 67/2   NLTC Perera 1* (1b)

8.1

Johnson to NLTC Perera, no run, length ball, around off, played to straight extra cover

8.2

Johnson to NLTC Perera, FOUR, slower ball, hit on the up, powerful shot, towards long-on, where O'Keefe misfields and costs Australia three runs

8.3

Johnson to NLTC Perera, 2 runs, nothing going Australia's way. This is a good bouncer, but the top edge clears the wicketkeeper who is running back. John Hastings, though, makes a good save running from fine leg to behind the keeper, and relays it to Watson

8.4

Johnson to NLTC Perera, 2 runs, length ball, and Perera has hit the leather off this. Good job by Johnson to get a hand to it, but it still needs some chasing by O'Keefe from long-on, to keep them down to two

8.5

Johnson to NLTC Perera, OUT, the short ball does the job for Johnson. This is just outside off, shoulder-high, and Perera upper-cuts this one straight down Watson's throat at third man

NLTC Perera c Watson b Johnson 9 (4m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

Sri Lanka 75/3   NLTC Perera 9 (6b 1x4)
