8 June 2009 - day/night match (20-over match)

Mathews to Warner, OUT, got him! Slightly shorter by Matthews and Warner cuts and slaps it straight into the hands of point!

DA Warner c Dilshan b Mathews 0 (1m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Australia 1/1   SR Watson 1* (1b)   AD Mathews 0.4-0-1-1

Mendis to Ponting, OUT, bowled him! Ponting stepped outside leg trying to smite him over cover but loses his leg stump. Looked to me like a leggie from Mendis

RT Ponting b Mendis 25 (23m 15b 5x4 0x6) SR: 166.66

Australia 48/2   SR Watson 20* (18b 2x4 1x6)   BAW Mendis 1-0-1-1

Mendis to Watson, OUT, gone! Watson attempts a horrible sweep to this very full and straight delivery, and he's hit on the back pad. Poor stroke - quality bowling

SR Watson lbw b Mendis 22 (32m 21b 2x4 1x6) SR: 104.76

Australia 59/3   BJ Haddin 9* (6b 1x6)   BAW Mendis 1.3-0-2-2

Malinga to Haddin, OUT, bowled him! Comical cricket. A slower full-toss which Haddin seemed to pick, but it dipped late on him and splattered his stumps - the off stump and middle stump both flattened

BJ Haddin b Malinga 16 (18m 17b 0x4 1x6) SR: 94.11

Australia 74/4   MJ Clarke 7* (10b)   SL Malinga 2-0-19-1

Udana to Clarke, OUT, another one done by a slower delivery. Are you watching, England? Superb delivery on middle-and-leg which Clarke picked, but got a leading edge back to the bowler who took a great low catch with his left hand

MJ Clarke c & b Udana 11 (17m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 73.33

Australia 79/5   DJ Hussey 1* (3b)   I Udana 2.2-0-22-1

Mendis to MEK Hussey, OUT, what bowling. What belief and guile from Mendis. A quicker and fuller ball to Hussey who's rapped absolutely dead in front. Too quick, too straight

MEK Hussey lbw b Mendis 1 (7m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Australia 94/6   DJ Hussey 14* (13b 1x4 1x6)   BAW Mendis 2.5-0-11-3

Udana to DJ Hussey, OUT, tries to repeat the shot but slices it high and point swallows it with ease

DJ Hussey c Jayasuriya b Udana 28 (28m 22b 1x4 2x6) SR: 127.27

Australia 135/7   MG Johnson 27* (12b 2x4 2x6)   I Udana 3.2-0-35-2

Malinga to Lee, OUT, what a yorker. Oh well bowled! Very, very fast and hit the base of the leg stump which is sent cartwheeling

B Lee b Malinga 15 (5b 2x4 1x6) SR: 300.00

Australia 151/8   MG Johnson 28* (13b 2x4 2x6)   SL Malinga 3.2-0-28-2

Malinga to Hauritz, OUT, outside edge, another one for Malinga - well caught by Sangakkara low to his right

NM Hauritz c †Sangakkara b Malinga 4 (2m 3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 133.33

Australia 155/9   MG Johnson 28* (13b 2x4 2x6)   SL Malinga 3.5-0-32-3
