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

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

Bollinger to Mathews, OUT, Another blow to Sri Lanka. Mathews is looking to go over extra cover, but this is pitched short of a length, and is just not the length for that shot. Ends up slicing it square on the off side, where deep cover runs around and takes a safe catch
