Brett Lee7.103314.60275010
41.1 to KMDN Kulasekara, superb shot, but what a catch from Mike Hussey, Lee gets his 350th ODI wicket, banged it in short and Nuwan cracked the pull right out of the middle of the bat, it was dying in front of Hussey at deep midwicket, but he dived forward to take the ball close to the ground. 191/10
Doug Bollinger713414.85296010
19.1 to LD Chandimal, what a catch that is from Michael Clarke, Doug slanted a length ball across Chandimal who got too far across and had a poke at it, the edge went between Haddin and Clarke at wide slip who flew to his left and grabbed the ball one-handed at it almost rushed passed him, superb reflexes from the captain, Australia on top. 101/5
Shane Watson201206.0093000
Xavier Doherty1014814.80357000
9.4 to WU Tharanga, Doherty strikes, Tharanga went back as he saw a marginally shortish one, it turned in sharply and beat his attempted cut to hit off stump, he was looking really good, Doherty is pumped up. 54/1
David Hussey201216.0061000
12.3 to TM Dilshan, Dilshan has thrown it away, he was looking increasingly impatient, got down the track as he saw some flight outside off, but was still not close enough to the ball as he blasted it straight to mid off. 76/2
Mitchell Johnson1013163.10432100
14.3 to DPMD Jayawardene, Australia are appealing for caught behind, it was a fullish and wide one slanted across Mahela who went for the drive, Haddin took it tumbling to his right, Australia are sure about it, umpire de Silva walks across towards square leg to check if it has carried, it has gone very low but right in to Haddin's gloves, and umpire de Silva sends Mahela back after checking with the third umpire, Johnson strikes in his first over. 80/3
16.5 to KC Sangakkara, Johnson has got Sanga, huge wicket, it is the slower one, bowled full close to off for the drive, mighty useful on this track, Sanga comes forward and looks to push hard. but pops it straight to short extra cover. 89/4
20.5 to BMAJ Mendis, Johnson is pumped up, he has gone through Mendis' defenses with a pacy yorker from over the stumps that swung in a bit late to clatter in to off and middle. 112/6
22.6 to AD Mathews, Angelo becomes the latest Sri Lanka batsman to throw it away, these shots are certainly not on on this pitch, he looks to come down the track and make room to clobber a pitched up delivery over mid off, but cannot clear the man, straight to him. 117/7
38.1 to S Randiv, they have finally broken the partnership, it is Johnson again, five for him, Randiv goes for the big lofted shot down the ground off a full delivery, but mishits it high in the air and Doherty settles under it at long off and takes it cleanly. 177/8
38.6 to BAW Mendis, and gets his sixth with a slanted length ball that hits the top of off stump, Mendis just went pushing away from his body and was nowhere near the line of the ball. 177/9

Nuwan Kulasekara512104.20201100
Suranga Lakmal503907.80156110
Ajantha Mendis603215.33191200
8.6 to BJ Haddin, Haddin can't survive this over, he hasn't looked comfortable at all, tosses it up, it is the one that breaks back in, Haddin just plays all around it, probably for the one turning away, and middle stump is pegged back. 59/1
Suraj Randiv8.104425.38294200
11.6 to SR Watson, Watson has fallen, the method was bound to come undone at least off one delivery, happened this time, Randiv tossed it up around middle and leg, Watson lunged for the sweep, and got a top edge that swirled to the man at short fine leg who went a few steps back and to his left to take the ball as it came over his shoulder. 81/2
34.6 to RT Ponting, Ponting is gone this time, he went for the sweep from outside off but was struck on the pad and the ball trickled in to the stumps to dislodge the bail. 182/3
