Pathirana to Head, SIX runs, Palmed over for six. Australia sweep the series 2-0! Head dares to charge at Pathirana again. Mowed it to deep midwicket, where Sena leaps and only lobs it over the fence. Initially omitted from the ODI squad to face Sri Lanka in limited-overs matches, Head seals the chase with a slog-swept boundary

Prasanna to Maxwell, FOUR runs, two men flung themselves after the ball, but Kapugedera and Mendis have muffed up. Maxwell went for the reverse sweep again, got under the ball, honestly a little too far under the ball to time it well. Still he gets it away
5.6

NLTC Perera to Maxwell, FOUR runs, short, angled into the stumps, Maxwell backs away and slaps it. Not entirely timed, but it has enough to lob over and to the right of the diving short third man fielder

NLTC Perera to Maxwell, FOUR runs, and again, through mid-off. Thisara is looking for the blockhole at leg stump. Maxi steps away and drills it through.. That's the record for the fastest fifty by an Australian. Got to it off 19 balls the other day when he scored 146. This one off 18 balls

NLTC Perera to Maxwell, FOUR runs, shovelled over mid-off. Miss the yorker at your peril. The strength he puts into the shot through his bottom hand and forearms is amazing.
5.3
6
NLTC Perera to Maxwell, SIX runs, bye-bye legcutter. The square boundaries are fairly big, but Maxwell has plenty of power. The bat speed is incredible. Though he had fooled Warner with a short ball, this one is well within the Maxwell's reach

Senanayake to Maxwell, SIX runs, skids into the leg stump, Maxi goes low and slog-sweeps it viciously over the backward square leg fence

Senanayake to Maxwell, SIX runs, He has hit the pants off this! Pushed through, full outside off, not much turn, Maxi sinks his teeth into it and golf-swings it over long-on. The seam-up ball has been dispatched

Senanayake to Maxwell, FOUR runs, flighted outside off, a helmet-less Maxi surges down the track and lifts it over mid-on, though it was not middled

Pathirana to Maxwell, FOUR runs, overpitched and outside off, bottom-hand dominated drive square through the off side, whistles away
3.2
6
Pathirana to Maxwell, SIX runs, That's one of those Maxi trick shots. It goes all the way for the first six of the match. Pushed through full on middle, he reverses it and swats it over backward point
2.5

Lakmal to Warner, FOUR runs, Lakmal overpitches outside off, Warner takes it and slaps it over the diving mid-off fielder
2.1

Lakmal to Warner, FOUR runs, full and outside off, Warner flays it over extra-cover for a boundary. Lakmal over-shot this full ball

Senanayake to Warner, FOUR runs, Warner unleashes the reverse sweep. Full on middle, goes low, and slots it away to the left of backward point. Such fast hands

Senanayake to Maxwell, FOUR runs, Sena lobs this up full on middle, mid-on is up, and Maxi brings the bottom hand into play, shovelling over the top of the fielder
