Fall of wickets: 1-76 (Michael Klinger, 10.3 ov), 2-86 (Aaron Finch, 11.3 ov), 3-116 (Moises Henriques, 15.1 ov), 4-153 (Travis Head, 18.4 ov), 5-153 (Ashton Turner, 18.5 ov), 6-162 (Tim Paine, 19.4 ov)
18.4 to TM Head, First wicket for Malinga on return. Holes out to Prasanna, who makes no mistake this time. Head backs away outside leg stump, this is speared full and wide outside off. Head reaches out and nails it to the fielder. 153/4
18.5 to AJ Turner, Two in two for Malinga and Prasanna. The fielder lets out a roar. Malinga attempts a yorker, comes out as a full-toss on the leg stump. Turner swings and Prasanna runs to his right from deep midwicket to pouch it. 153/5
15.1 to MC Henriques, First international wicket for Sanjaya! Length ball on off, Henriques can't clear the long boundary. #MCGisbig. Holes out to Kapu at long-on. The shot was on, but the execution was bad, with the bat twisting in Henriques' hands. 116/3
10.3 to M Klinger, wrong'un, full on off stump, Klinger looks to slog it over the leg side. He did not pick the wrong'un I guess. Wanted to heave over the leg side, and ended up slicing an outside edge in the air. Malinga ventured in from point and clasped it, sliding on his knees. 76/1
11.3 to AJ Finch, Malinga tracks down this skier, running in from short fine leg. Slower offcutter from Asela, Finch swipes early and sends a top-edge in the air. Smart catch from Malinga. Two catches in two overs for him. SL slowing Australia down. 86/2

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 8.60)172/5
Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Upul Tharanga, 0.6 ov), 2-79 (Niroshan Dickwella, 8.5 ov), 3-91 (Dilshan Munaweera, 10.4 ov), 4-151 (Asela Gunaratne, 17.1 ov), 5-152 (Milinda Siriwardana, 17.3 ov)
0.6 to WU Tharanga, Tharanga is rattled by pace. Nicked behind for a duck. Pace like fire, 146ks, swings away around off. Opens 'em up. Tharanga wafts and Paine gobbles up the edge. 5/1
8.5 to N Dickwella, quick fizzer angled across the off stump. Dickwella looks to flick it over midwicket. He can only lob a leading edge into the hands of Klinger at short third man. 79/2
10.4 to EMDY Munaweera, Zampa produces another breakthrough. Hip-high ball, half-tracker, on off stump, Munaweera pulls it flat to midwicket. Head-high catch for Finch. Munaweera played a half-hearted shot. Should have given it a proper thump. Wristspinners having a good day in Melbourne. 91/3
17.1 to DAS Gunaratne, Stumping chance. This looks tight. Sliding across off from around the stumps. Asela, stretching forward, attempts a reverse-sweep and misses. He loses his balance, and can't ground his bat in time. Good awareness from Paine. Maiden international wicket for Turner. 151/4
17.3 to TAM Siriwardana, Two wickets in three balls for the debutant. Pushed through flatter and quicker, Siriwardana plays back and is pinned in front of leg stump. Was it heading down leg? I am sure this is missing the stumps. The umpire doesn't think so, and raises his finger. The tracker suggests it was heading down. 152/5
