    15.2 bowled 'im! Siddle is ecstatic. He has got the Big Fish here. MJ tries another scoop shot, and moves too far across the stumps, and ends up playing a length ball onto the off stump 105/8
    1.1 Kulatunga is cleaned up first ball, a yorker outside off, an inside-edge sends it crashing into off and middle, that's his second consecutive duck, he was touted to be their player to watch ahead of this tournament after making tons of runs in domestic Twenty20 tournament but he has been disappointing so far 9/1
    1.3 sensational stuff from Victoria, overpitched on offstump,crisply driven by Udawatte, full-length dive from McKay at mid-on cuts off the ball, McKay was just getting up when he unleashed a throw, which takes out middle stump on the ball, Udawatte turned back for the second ball in a row but this time he can't beat the throw, another duck 9/2
    10.1 McD gets the big wicket. Mubarak was looking really good. Again the ball grips for McDonald. Seems like the offcutter, at 123ks, Mubarak ends up driving in front of his body, and short extra cover does he rest 81/3
    11.5 Victoria are on absolute fire in the field! This was bowled full around off, Perera hit it powerfully, it seemed to be flying past short extra cover, when Hussey stuck his right hand out and plucked it. A nice mix of reflex and coordinated movements 90/4
    12.6 he has finally got his man, and it is fitting that the keeper, Wade, does it. Karunanayake steps out of the crease to try and loft it down the ground, there s extra bounce on offer and Wade collects it just behind the middle stump. He had to leap a bit to keep it in control, and did well to break the stumps 94/5
    13.2 He is the latest man out! Seemed like the slower ball, gripping the surface and bouncing at him. Perera gets a fain tickle while looking to run it down to third man. There is a slip in place too, by the way 95/6
    13.3 on a hat-trick there! Soft dismissal. This ball doesn't misbehave, Udana looks to punch it square, and Hastings takes a nice, low catch at point 95/7
    15.6 bowled 'im! It's the same stump, except it's the leg stump for Herath. And just like MJ, he has moved too far across to play this, exposing the leg stump. Siddle takes it. The coaches told you, know the whereabouts of your off stump. Well, add leg stump to it 106/9
    16.3 and another stumps is out of its groove. Mendis doesn't fancy getting hit by Nannes, and backs away for a big loft again. Nannes hits the base of the middle stump 106/10

Match Notes

  • Nothing goes right for Wayamba

    Wayamba have looked unsure of themselves and their purpose, failing to replicate their terrific domestic form

  • 'It's out of our hands now' - Siddle

    Mahela Jayawardene's press conference was a bit like the match itself: done and dusted in less time than he would have needed to strap on his pads. Peter Siddle, however, had more to say

  • Intense Victoria maul woeful Wayamba

    Wayamba's Champions League hopes crashed against a top-quality fielding effort from Victoria, that was backed by purpose with both ball and bat, as they succumbed to a eight-wicket pounding in Centurion
