Brett Lee1005025.00354120
7.4 to TM Dilshan, Inswinger. Timber. Dilshan has been a touch late with the fuller deliveries, and this one is slightly shorter than the driving length, and sneaks in through the big gap between bat and pad. Middle stump is out, Lee is thrilled. 37/1
39.3 to BMAJ Mendis, Lovely slower bouncer, 121ks, well directed too, cramps him up. Mendis goes for the pull, gets just a tame top edge, and short fine leg does the rest. 151/6
Doug Bollinger1023533.50384010
20.2 to LD Chandimal, awesome bowling... the bouncer is followed up by the length ball, in the channel outside off. Chandimal is sitting inside the crease after that bouncer, and just leaves the bat to fry. The edge is taken. Good disciplined persistence from Australia on a flat track. 77/4
40.5 to AD Mathews, Another blow to Sri Lanka. Mathews is looking to go over extra cover, but this is pitched short of a length, and is just not the length for that shot. Ends up slicing it square on the off side, where deep cover runs around and takes a safe catch. 159/7
42.3 to SL Malinga, weak shot from Malinga. Backs away and pushes at this length ball away from the body, straight to Ponting at point. Bollinger points skywards, Malinga looks down at ground as he walks back. 173/8
Shane Watson5.302915.27143000
49.3 to KMDN Kulasekara, Clarke takes the catch now. Short of a length, Kula has an almighty heave at it, gets a leading edge, which stays forever in the sky, and Clarke completes a running catch from cover. 208/10
Mitchell Johnson913423.77291010
10.2 to WU Tharanga, Johnson strikes. His red-hot form continues. Digs this one in short, outside off, Tharanga looks to sway out of the line, but doesn't quite take the gloves out of the way. The ball doesn't quite rise up, and kisses the glove on the way. 41/2
46.5 to HMRKB Herath, late swing for Johnson, accurate too, this pitches middle and off, and swings in, beats the bat, hits the pad for a pretty straightforward decision for Tony Hill. 195/9
Xavier Doherty1004314.30291121
19.5 to DPMD Jayawardene, Doherty gets his man, he has been frustrating Mahela with his accurate bowling and the drift that has been getting. Mahela goes for the big sweep from outside off, and places it right down deep square leg's throat. 74/3
David Hussey501513.00160010
36.2 to KC Sangakkara, Full toss! Caught at long-on! Goes for the midwicket boundary, but gets a sort of leading edge/toe end, and skies it to Johnson at long-on. Sanga can't believe it. 140/5

Lasith Malinga804515.62305051
19.5 to SR Watson, the bat-pad gap is created this time! Clatter behind Watson. Noise in the stands again. This is full and straight, starts around off, tails in late, Watson looks for a drive down the ground, but is beaten by the swing. Middle and leg stumps are disturbed. 104/2
Nuwan Kulasekara713815.42285100
1.6 to BJ Haddin, Sanga has taken a special catch standing up! Haddin attempts another big drive on the ump, this one doesn't swing as much as he expects it to, takes the outside edge, and straight into Sanga's gloves. Not a big deflection, but still a superb catch when you are standing up to a quick. There was a puff of dust when the ball pitched. 10/1
