Australia in Sri Lanka T20I Series - 2nd T20I

Sri Lanka v Australia

Sri Lanka won by 8 runs

7.1

Smith to Jayawardene, 1 run, short and wide, cut away into front of square. Gets just the single. Will think he has missed out on this gift

7.2

Smith to Chandimal, no run, fuller legbreak, Chandimal looks to turn this to leg, ends up playing it back to the bowler

7.3

Smith to Chandimal, 2 runs, flatter, into the pads, punched away square, gets a couple for it

7.4

Smith to Chandimal, FOUR, unfortunate for Australia. Chandimal skips out of the crease, doesn't quite get to the pitch, but the thick edge goes fine of short third man. No slip obviously

7.5

Smith to Chandimal, OUT, His tendency to play to leg has got him! For the second time in this over he tries to work a legbreak to from well outside off to the leg side. Gets a healthy leading edge that carries to Smith

LD Chandimal c & b Smith 13 (24m 11b 2x4 0x6) SR: 118.18

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   SPD Smith 1-0-8-1

9.1

Smith to Sangakkara, 1 run, full, outside off, flicked into the on side

9.2

Smith to Jayawardene, no run, Huge huge appeal for lbw, this is the straighter one, and beats Mahela's attempt to work it to leg. Pitched in front of middle, hits him in front of middle and leg. Slightly unlucky to not get that

9.3

Smith to Jayawardene, SIX, top shot again, moves across early, gets on a knee, and plays the regulation sweep in the air, and over the square leg fieldsman

9.4

Smith to Jayawardene, no run

9.5

Smith to Jayawardene, 1 run, plays the reverse paddle now, can't beat the short third man this time

Sri Lanka 89/3   SPD Smith 2-0-18-1

13.1

13.3

Smith to Jayawardene, no run, driven inside-out after making room, but can't beat extra cover
