Australia in Sri Lanka ODI Series - 2nd ODI

Sri Lanka v Australia

Australia won by 8 wickets (with 70 balls remaining)

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   WU Tharanga 12* (23b 2x4)   B Lee 2.4-0-13-1

10.2

Johnson to Tharanga, OUT, Johnson strikes. His red-hot form continues. Digs this one in short, outside off, Tharanga looks to sway out of the line, but doesn't quite take the gloves out of the way. The ball doesn't quite rise up, and kisses the glove on the way

WU Tharanga c †Haddin b Johnson 13 (49m 30b 2x4 0x6) SR: 43.33

Sri Lanka 41/2   KC Sangakkara 2* (9b)   MG Johnson 1.2-1-1-1

19.5

Doherty to Jayawardene, OUT, Doherty gets his man, he has been frustrating Mahela with his accurate bowling and the drift that has been getting. Mahela goes for the big sweep from outside off, and places it right down deep square leg's throat

DPMD Jayawardene c MEK Hussey b Doherty 17 (41m 30b 1x4 0x6) SR: 56.66

Sri Lanka 74/3   KC Sangakkara 15* (36b)   XJ Doherty 3.5-0-10-1

20.2

Bollinger to Chandimal, OUT, awesome bowling... the bouncer is followed up by the length ball, in the channel outside off. Chandimal is sitting inside the crease after that bouncer, and just leaves the bat to fry. The edge is taken. Good disciplined persistence from Australia on a flat track

LD Chandimal c †Haddin b Bollinger 1 (4m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Sri Lanka 77/4   KC Sangakkara 15* (36b)   DE Bollinger 5.2-1-17-1

36.2

DJ Hussey to Sangakkara, OUT, Full toss! Caught at long-on! Goes for the midwicket boundary, but gets a sort of leading edge/toe end, and skies it to Johnson at long-on. Sanga can't believe it

KC Sangakkara c Johnson b DJ Hussey 52 (121m 85b 1x4 1x6) SR: 61.17

Sri Lanka 140/5   AD Mathews 23* (47b)   DJ Hussey 4.2-0-13-1

39.3

Lee to BMAJ Mendis, OUT, Lovely slower bouncer, 121ks, well directed too, cramps him up. Mendis goes for the pull, gets just a tame top edge, and short fine leg does the rest

BMAJ Mendis c Bollinger b Lee 5 (15m 9b 0x4 0x6) SR: 55.55

Sri Lanka 151/6   AD Mathews 29* (57b)   B Lee 6.3-0-24-2

40.5

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

AD Mathews c MEK Hussey b Bollinger 35 (87m 62b 1x4 0x6) SR: 56.45

Sri Lanka 159/7   KMDN Kulasekara 2* (3b)   DE Bollinger 7.5-2-27-2

42.3

Bollinger to Malinga, OUT, weak shot from Malinga. Backs away and pushes at this length ball away from the body, straight to Ponting at point. Bollinger points skywards, Malinga looks down at ground as he walks back

SL Malinga c Ponting b Bollinger 0 (9m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 173/8   KMDN Kulasekara 16* (11b 1x4 1x6)   DE Bollinger 8.3-2-28-3

46.5

Johnson to Herath, OUT, late swing for Johnson, accurate too, this pitches middle and off, and swings in, beats the bat, hits the pad for a pretty straightforward decision for Tony Hill

HMRKB Herath lbw b Johnson 9 (17m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 69.23

Sri Lanka 195/9   KMDN Kulasekara 29* (24b 3x4 1x6)   MG Johnson 7.5-1-30-2

49.3

Watson to Kulasekara, OUT, Clarke takes the catch now. Short of a length, Kula has an almighty heave at it, gets a leading edge, which stays forever in the sky, and Clarke completes a running catch from cover

KMDN Kulasekara c Clarke b Watson 34 (47m 31b 3x4 1x6) SR: 109.67

Sri Lanka 208/10   BAW Mendis 7* (9b 1x4)   SR Watson 5.3-0-29-1
