Australia in Sri Lanka ODI Series - 4th ODI

Sri Lanka v Australia

Australia won by 5 wickets (with 132 balls remaining)

1.1

Bollinger to Dilshan, no run, he is on target right away too, around that off stump, going across, Dilshan shuffles around and pushes towards point

1.2

Bollinger to Dilshan, 1 run, more bounce as he goes back of a length, Dilshan pushes purposefully in front of cover with an open face and they take the first run of the game

Sri Lanka 1/0   TM Dilshan 1* (2b)

2.1

Lee to Dilshan, 1 run, shortish and he latches on to the pull right away, keeps it along the ground through square leg too, rolling his wrists over the ball

2.3

Lee to Dilshan, no run, Dilshan looking for the swat-punch through extra cover, Lee bowls a slower one back of a length, and Dilshan cannot get any timing on the shot

2.4

Lee to Dilshan, 1 run, well played, but Ponting at backward point rolls back the years with a dive to his left and a one-handed stop, Dilshan had used Lee's pace very well to open the face and push through the line, that was travelling

Sri Lanka 8/0   TM Dilshan 3* (5b)

3.1

Bollinger to Dilshan, no run, the ball is coming on nicely, but Dilshan's push finds short extra cover as he gets forward to a length ball going across

3.2

Bollinger to Dilshan, no run, Doug is finding a lot of bounce from this harmless looking pitch, beats Dilshan who has a go at one leaving him with the angle

3.3

Bollinger to Dilshan, FOUR, clobber! that is in Dilshan's slot, pitched up, wide and full outside off, he gets forward and cracks it off the middle through extra cover, bothering to run? don't

3.4

Bollinger to Dilshan, no run, similar delivery, and Dilshan gets forward to thump it again, not that wide though, and he cannot time the shot, is pretty cross with himself and waves the bat in disgust

3.5

Bollinger to Dilshan, no run, shortish delivery and Dilshan shapes up for the pull, he is late on the shot as Dougie finds some pace on it and hits it on the bounce to short midwicket

3.6

Bollinger to Dilshan, FOUR, width available and Dilshan goes after it, thick outside edge but it has flown to the third man boundary

Sri Lanka 16/0   TM Dilshan 11* (11b 2x4)

4.2

Lee to Dilshan, no run, looks to pounce on one just outside off stump but mistimes it towards covers

4.3

Lee to Dilshan, 1 run, straight on middle stump, Dilshan pushes in front of mid on and takes off for the single

4.6

Lee to Dilshan, no run, 136.3 kph from Lee, and Dilshan goes pushing in the air off the front foot, ball falls short of the man at mid off, not quite driving length but he he had a go

Sri Lanka 19/0   TM Dilshan 12* (14b 2x4)

5.5

Bollinger to Dilshan, OUT, there is no getting away this time, Doug's bounce has done Dilshan, he has been getting it to take off consistently, Dilshan's instinct is to go after it as it bounces close to off stump, too high he finds out as he gets an edge on its way to Haddin

TM Dilshan c †Haddin b Bollinger 12 (28m 15b 2x4 0x6) SR: 80.00

Sri Lanka 20/1   TM Dilshan 12 (15b 2x4)
