Australia in Sri Lanka ODI Series - 4th ODI

Sri Lanka v Australia

Australia won by 5 wickets (with 132 balls remaining)

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   WU Tharanga 8* (20b 1x4)   DE Bollinger 2.5-0-14-1

6.2

Lee to Tharanga, OUT, Lee has gone through Tharanga, pretty ordinary shot and the stumps are splattered, it was the slower one from Lee, 125.3 kph, full and on the stumps, Tharanga just had a huge heave at it, and played all over it

WU Tharanga b Lee 8 (33m 22b 1x4 0x6) SR: 36.36

Sri Lanka 24/2   KC Sangakkara 0* (1b)   B Lee 3.2-1-6-1

25.2

Doherty to Sangakkara, OUT, Sanga goes this time, he comes down the track, and does what he had been wanting to for quite some time, gets to the pitch and connects well with the lofted shot, but he has got it too flat and Lee takes a fine tumbling catch at long on, so Doherty breaks the stand for Australia, it had started to assume slightly worrisome proportions

KC Sangakkara c Lee b Doherty 31 (92m 56b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.35

Sri Lanka 95/3   DPMD Jayawardene 35* (59b 3x4)   XJ Doherty 4.2-0-16-1

25.4

Doherty to Silva, OUT, another one, Doherty strikes again, Silva has gone for nothing, pushing forward to one pitching on the off stump, it does not turn and goes on with the angle, he plays for it, outside the line as a result, is struck on the pads, and is given right away, that would have hit leg

LPC Silva lbw b Doherty 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 95/4   DPMD Jayawardene 35* (59b 3x4)   XJ Doherty 4.4-0-16-2

27.3

Doherty to Mathews, OUT, whoa, that is one of the blindest of blind charges you'll ever see, team four down, and Angelo comes rushing down the track as Doherty gives it a bit of air, he is nowhere close to it and is stranded way down the track, Haddin has a simple stumping

AD Mathews st †Haddin b Doherty 6 (8m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 101/5   DPMD Jayawardene 35* (64b 3x4)   XJ Doherty 5.3-0-19-3

32.3

Watson to Kulasekara, OUT, another one goes, Watson gets it to move in from a length, Kula is caught on the back foot, and the ball sneaks past his push to crash in to the pad and umpire Asoka has no issues with that

KMDN Kulasekara lbw b Watson 7 (19m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 36.84

Sri Lanka 118/6   DPMD Jayawardene 40* (75b 3x4)   SR Watson 5.3-0-15-1

36.1

Lee to Eranga, OUT, and gets one first ball, Eranga tries to hop in the air and cut a bouncing short one outside off, picks out third man who does not have to move at all

RMS Eranga c Bollinger b Lee 1 (15m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Sri Lanka 128/7   DPMD Jayawardene 49* (91b 4x4)   B Lee 5.1-1-12-2

37.5

Doherty to Prasanna, OUT, is that another one, Prasanna goes for the review as umpire Hill gives him out leg before, it was the tossed up ball that carried straight in, he pushed outside the line and was struck on the pad, that would have hit middle and off, and Sri Lanka have lost the review, best figures for Xavier Doherty

S Prasanna lbw b Doherty 0 (7m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 132/8   DPMD Jayawardene 53* (99b 4x4)   XJ Doherty 9.5-0-28-4

38.3

Lee to Jayawardene, OUT, Binga! Accurate bouncer, Jayawardene looks for the flick-pull, gets a top edge, and Lee runs towards square leg to complete the catch. Huge wicket, Jayawardene could still have hurt Australia

DPMD Jayawardene c & b Lee 53 (149m 102b 4x4 0x6) SR: 51.96

Sri Lanka 132/9   SL Malinga 0* (1b)   B Lee 6.3-1-15-3

38.4

Lee to Malinga, OUT, right through him, backing away, Lee keeps it full, moving in late on the stumps, Malinga goes nowhere with the swipe and that is the end of the innings

SL Malinga b Lee 0 (7m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 132/10   BAW Mendis 0* (0b)   B Lee 6.4-1-15-4
