That does it for our live coverage from this match. Keep your eyes peeled for Dan Brettig's report and more post-match snippets from Annesha Ghosh at the WACA. For my tag-team partner Alex Malcolm on commentary, I'm Peter Della Penna. Stay tuned for the second match in today's double-header between Bangladesh and India, kicking off in about 50 minutes. Take care!
Meg Lanning: "We just needed to build a partnership and get the scorecard moving a little bit. Luckily we were only chasing 120 so it sort of allows a little bit of time to get into it. It's certainly a nicer feeling to have the win on the board. We would have liked to have played better and we definitely need to improve heading into the next couple of games but sometimes it's just nice to get off the mark. I thought our bowling was really good today, our fielding was good, just a little bit of an unsettling start with the bat."
Chamari Atapattu: "I tried to play my natural normal game, positively at that stage and unfortunately I got out. If I stay three or four more overs, definitely I change the game. I was confident about my young girls and about my young bowling unit but unfortunately in the last over we lost. We are always trying to play positive cricket. Getting 3 wickets for 10 runs, we were pumped up."
And here is Haynes to talk about her Player of the Match effort: "Walking out to bat wasn't an ideal situation but knowing one of the best batters in the world is at the other end, we knew we just had to knuckle down and have a really good partnership to get ourselves back in the game. The ball was just sliding on. I don't think turn or swing was playing much of a factor by the time I got out there. It was just a matter of playing through the line of the ball."
5:55 pm Talk about getting out of jail. Australia can count themselves lucky here. They were sweating bullets when Atapattu was cruising on 50 in the first innings, but her wicket to end the 14th resulted in the brakes being put on with just 31 runs coming in the last six overs. After a sharp double-wicket burst by Prabodhani in the Powerplay to start the chase, Sri Lanka pay dearly for some sloppy fielding, dropping three chances as well as a very poor review by the captain Atapattu, leaving them without one when Lanning was given not out after the Australia captain toe-edged behind on 15 before ending 41 not out. Haynes was one of the three drops, missed on 26 initially before kicking on to a key fifty in a Player of the Match performance.
Jamie: "Sri Lanka with only themselves to blame here. Dreadful in the field and poor reviewing. We all know an Aussie isn't going to walk... "
Here's Perry finally.
Sri Lanka will rue what might have been. A very porous fielding performance when they had Australia in deep trouble in the Powerplay.
Suyog: "SriLanka has only 1 world class player in Chamiri Atapattu whereas Australia have 6 to 7 quality players which makes a HUGE difference in the final outcome of a match. Hence SriLanka wins 1 or 2 games in 10 and Australia loses 1 or 2 in 10."
Yuvraj Singh : "That poor review for caught behind was the turning point of the match as far as Sri Lanka are concerned. They wasted it, and couldn't use any when there actually was a nick. Could have been a different story."
Nicola Carey enters ahead of Perry.... Slip in place.
