Australia tour of Sri Lanka, 5th ODI: Sri Lanka v Australia at Colombo (RPS), Aug 22, 2011
Sri Lanka won by 4 wickets (with 18 balls remaining)
22 August 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Eranga to Marsh, OUT, safe to say that is out, Marsh is bowled by a length delivery coming in, he was looking to clip that to the leg side, he misses the ball, through the bat-pad gap and then crashes into the top of the stumps, before running away to the fine leg boundary

SE Marsh b Eranga 2 (10m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Australia 4/1   SR Watson 0* (6b)   RMS Eranga 1-0-4-1

Mathews to Ponting, OUT, there's the breakthrough, that ball comes on slower than Ponting expected, he was early into the shot, and the ball lobs up towards midwicket, Suraj Randiv jumps forward and snaffles the ball, it was the offcutter from Mathews, not sure Ponting picked it

RT Ponting c sub (S Randiv) b Mathews 31 (54m 35b 6x4 0x6) SR: 88.57

Australia 71/2   SR Watson 32* (43b 5x4)   AD Mathews 1.4-0-4-1

BAW Mendis to Watson, OUT, the end of Watson, the flighted googly, Watson tried to hammer it over midwicket, gets a top edge and the ball swirls high, Tharanga gets under it at deep midwicket and pouches it

SR Watson c Tharanga b BAW Mendis 56 (120m 84b 6x4 1x6) SR: 66.66

Australia 127/3   MJ Clarke 29* (44b 2x4)   BAW Mendis 3.5-0-15-1

Prasanna to MEK Hussey, OUT, the googly does the job, Hussey looking to drive that one, doesn't read the turn, gets a thin outside edge, Sanga collects and that's another wicket for Sri Lanka, big innings coming up this for David Hussey

MEK Hussey c †Sangakkara b Prasanna 6 (17m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 37.50

Australia 146/4   MJ Clarke 41* (56b 3x4)   S Prasanna 9.3-1-35-1

Eranga to Clarke, OUT, Eranga has struck, this is a big blow, Clarke is gone, and Australia have two new batsmen at the crease, that was a short of length ball, pitching just outside off, goes on with angle and induces the outside edge, Clarke's patient innings comes to an end

MJ Clarke c †Sangakkara b Eranga 47 (94m 67b 3x4 0x6) SR: 70.14

Australia 167/5   DJ Hussey 14* (22b 2x4)   RMS Eranga 7-0-41-2

BAW Mendis to DJ Hussey, OUT, what a comeback from Mendis, that one spins in, Hussey doesn't read it and is caught on the back foot as he looks to cut that one, it slips past the bat and into middle and leg stump

DJ Hussey b BAW Mendis 46 (52m 49b 5x4 1x6) SR: 93.87

Australia 210/6   BJ Haddin 8* (12b 1x4)   BAW Mendis 8.3-0-48-2

Malinga to Johnson, OUT, Malinga you beauty, that spot-on yorker is far too good for Johnson, who was striving to get his bat down and keep that out but the ball zips past the batsman's defence and crashes into the bottom of legstump

MG Johnson b Malinga 1 (3m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Australia 211/7   BJ Haddin 8* (13b 1x4)   SL Malinga 7.2-1-35-1

Malinga to Hastings, OUT, Malinga is on a hat-trick now, or is Australia going to review this lbw? They have reviewed it. It was a low full toss, swinging dangerously in, the new batsman John Hastings couldn't keep it out, thuds into his pads, struck in front of legstump, umpire upholds the appeal, was it going down? the replay shows it would have taken the outside of leg stump, have to stick with the umpire's call for that, which means Hastings is gone for a golden duck

JW Hastings lbw b Malinga 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 211/8   BJ Haddin 8* (13b 1x4)   SL Malinga 7.3-1-35-2

Malinga to Doherty, OUT, hat-trick for Malinga, another of those laser-guided low full tosses, Xavier Doherty has no chance, the middle stump is rattled, and Australia are down to 211 for 9, so much for the Powerplay, that's Malinga's third hat-trick in one-dayers, the most anyone has ever taken

XJ Doherty b Malinga 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 211/9   BJ Haddin 8* (13b 1x4)   SL Malinga 7.4-1-35-3

BAW Mendis to Haddin, OUT, and the Australian inninigs has come to a rather rapid end, Mendis gets his third as Haddin tamely chips the ball to mid-off, Australua bowled out for 211, with nearly four overs remaining, two overs ago Australia were 210 for 5

BJ Haddin c Jayawardene b BAW Mendis 8 (43m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.14

Australia 211/10   JL Pattinson 0* (2b)   BAW Mendis 9.1-0-49-3
