Lasith Malinga403528.75102211
18.2 to TM Head, Kapu overruns the ball but hangs onto the catch at long-off. Low full-toss outside off, Head loses his shape, swings and holes out in the deep. 179/3
18.6 to AJ Turner, Kapu pulls off a cracking catch now. He dashes in from long-on, dives forward, and takes it. Turner backs away outside leg. Malinga chases him and cramps him with a full-toss which is dragged away to Kapu. He did well to attack the catch. 182/5
Nuwan Kulasekara4040010.0054110
Vikum Sanjaya3034011.3374210
Seekkuge Prasanna302518.3352100
8.3 to AJ Finch, Finch can't clear the long boundary, Siriwardana pouches it at the edge of the long-off fence. Prasanna celebrates the wicket with a dab. Munaweera might be relieved, or has the damage been done already? Finch looks to loft this tossed-up legbreak over the fielder after backing away outside leg. No dice. Ends up slicing a catch. 79/1
Milinda Siriwardana1012012.0010100
Asela Gunaratne1012012.0010110
Dasun Shanaka402726.7592000
13.6 to BR Dunk, Prasanna clings onto the catch, running back from point. Lands awkwardly on his elbow. Good length ball on off stump, Dunk looks to slog over midwicket. He ends up skewing it in the air. Prasanna hangs onto a swirling catch. 128/2
19.2 to JP Faulkner, Australia have lost four wickets for five runs. Third catch for Kapu in the deep. Faulkner can't get hold of this full-toss outside off. He miscues it to long-on. 184/6

Ashton Turner201507.5062010
Jhye Richardson3038112.6642320
7.3 to BKG Mendis, third slower ball of this over, Mendis picked it, and slogged it into the hands of deep midwicket. Full and angled in from over the wicket, Mendis drops to one knee and swings it to Cummins. 68/2
Pat Cummins302006.6692020
James Faulkner302036.6681110
3.4 to WU Tharanga, Tharanga can't clear the long boundary. Holes out to Richardson at the edge of the deep midwicket boundary. Dug in short and outside off. Tharanga pulls well but can't get it over the man in the deep. Australia find some breathing space. 41/1
14.5 to S Prasanna, Prasanna picks out the man at deep backward square leg, joins the long line of Sri Lankans who have holed out in the deep today, this was angling down leg once more, Prasanna swung at it and connected well, but not well enough. 120/7
16.3 to TAM Siriwardana, back of the hand slower ball on off stump, grips in the surface. Siriwardana does not pick this either - the third slower one of the over. He eyes up the leg side with a mow but only manages to sky it in the air. Faulker completes the return catch. Siriwardana goes and with it SL's chances?. 138/8

Adam Zampa402536.25112100
9.3 to DAS Gunaratne, Asela has been pinned lbw. Umpire Wilson raises his finger. No heroics from Asela today. Flat, non-turning ball on off, skids on and raps him on the knee-roll in front of off and middle. The tracker returns three reds. 76/4
11.4 to CK Kapugedera, This was about 20ks quicker than the previous ball. Beats Kapu for pace. Quick fizzer, rushes onto Kapu. He is very late on it. Timbaaah. Why was Zampa left out of the previous game?. 91/5
11.6 to MD Shanaka, Zampa is turning it on at the Adelaide Oval. Looks like the flipper from the front of the hand, rushes onto the batsman and pings the pad in front of off stump. Finch hugs Zampa and Australia celebrate. 91/6
Travis Head201618.0021010
8.1 to EMDY Munaweera, and he strikes with his first ball! Munaweera can't clear long-on. Pushed through on the stumps from around the wicket, Munaweera after backing away lofts it. Does not get enough power behind it and holes out. Turner gets into a side-on position and takes it. 69/3
