Australia in Sri Lanka ODI Series - 2nd ODI

Sri Lanka v Australia

Australia won by 8 wickets (with 70 balls remaining)

1.1

Bollinger to Dilshan, no run, goes after the first delivery, it's wide, way too wide for him to go at it without moving his feet

1.2

Bollinger to Dilshan, no run, extra bounce for Bollinger as Dilshan slashes at this, looking to go over point. Is beaten by the bounce

1.3

Bollinger to Dilshan, no run, fuller, swings in a bit, Dilshan pushes it back to Bollinger. That he had to hurriedly get the front pad out of the way suggests he was not expecting swing

1.4

Bollinger to Dilshan, no run, shorter, wider, left alone

1.5

Bollinger to Dilshan, no run, and he beats the edge with a short-of-a-length delivery just outside off. Dilshan played a defensive shot inside the line

1.6

Bollinger to Dilshan, 1 run, a good delivery but how well has he played this? Full and swinging in, towards off and middle, he makes room and plays with an open face, guiding it to third man for one

Sri Lanka 2/0   TM Dilshan 1* (6b)

2.1

Lee to Dilshan, FOUR, top shot, meets this back-of-a-length delivery with a full face, timing it well, between the bowler and mid-on

2.2

Lee to Dilshan, FOUR, if the last ball was persuaded, this has been forced for four. Makes room and crashes this through covers. Beats the short extra cover

2.3

Lee to Dilshan, 2 runs, smart work from Watson, not so smart from Lee. Dilshan has hit this powerfully, straight to Watson at short extra cover, who throws down the non-striker's stump direct. Tharanga is back in, but Lee just has a nothing flick back at Dilshan, who gets out of the way and lets the ball go for two overthrows

2.4

Lee to Dilshan, 1 run, placed wide of mid-on for one

Sri Lanka 13/0   TM Dilshan 12* (10b 2x4)

3.1

Bollinger to Dilshan, no run, short of a good length on middle, rocks back and defends it into the leg side

3.2

Bollinger to Dilshan, FOUR, smashed, on the up, lands on a good length and he flays it imperiously past extra cover

3.3

Bollinger to Dilshan, no run, around a good length just outside off, pushed on the bounce to that short extra cover fielder

3.4

Bollinger to Dilshan, 1 run, straying on the pads, tickles it down towards fine leg for a single

Sri Lanka 18/0   TM Dilshan 17* (14b 3x4)

4.1

Watson to Dilshan, no run, goes for the big cut immediately, this one stays low, and squeezes under the bat

4.2

Watson to Dilshan, FOUR, Crack. Gentle short delivery, wide enough, and Dilshan gives it the treatment square on off side

4.3

Watson to Dilshan, no run, full, into the pads, driven down the ground, finds mid-on

4.4

Watson to Dilshan, no run, stops at him, Dilshan plays this uppishly through short extra cover from where Hussey was just moved to his left to prevent the boundaries that Dilshan has been hitting

4.5

Watson to Dilshan, 1 run, steered to third man for a single

Sri Lanka 27/0   TM Dilshan 22* (19b 4x4)

6.1

Watson to Dilshan, 1 run, length ball, on off, Dilshan opens the body up, and drives it with an open face for single to sweeper-cover

6.5

Watson to Dilshan, 1 run, opens the face on this fullish delivery, places it between point and cover-point

Sri Lanka 35/0   TM Dilshan 24* (21b 4x4)

7.3

Lee to Dilshan, no run, full, but swinging in, Dilshan is a touch late into the drive, finds mid-off

7.4

Lee to Dilshan, OUT, Inswinger. Timber. Dilshan has been a touch late with the fuller deliveries, and this one is slightly shorter than the driving length, and sneaks in through the big gap between bat and pad. Middle stump is out, Lee is thrilled

TM Dilshan b Lee 24 (35m 23b 4x4 0x6) SR: 104.34

Sri Lanka 37/1   TM Dilshan 24 (23b 4x4)
