Sri Lankans156/6(31.5 overs)

Well an insiped batting display from the Sri Lankans, although they did it easily in the end, it was really only Dilshan who did any real damage. A good hitout for them nonetheless before the ODI series starts next week. Dilshan looks the goods and with Murali still to come in, the Sri Lankans will definitely be confident of some success in the Commonwealth Bank tri-series.

For Kevin07's XI, there weren't too many positives in the batting display, with Noffke top scoring with 30. The bowlers will take some heart from this performance though, with Hilfenhaus, Noffke and White all bowling well.

Malinga has just been named man of the match somewhat surprisingly. Whilst his was a good performance, Dilshan certainly shone with his batting display on a day where ball generally dominated bat.

Thanks for joining me, Andrew Fuss, for today's game. Hope to have your company again on Saturday when Western Australia take on Victoria. Cheers and have a great day.
