Brett Lee6.411542.25280000
6.2 to WU Tharanga, Lee has gone through Tharanga, pretty ordinary shot and the stumps are splattered, it was the slower one from Lee, 125.3 kph, full and on the stumps, Tharanga just had a huge heave at it, and played all over it. 24/2
36.1 to RMS Eranga, and gets one first ball, Eranga tries to hop in the air and cut a bouncing short one outside off, picks out third man who does not have to move at all. 128/7
38.3 to DPMD Jayawardene, Binga! Accurate bouncer, Jayawardene looks for the flick-pull, gets a top edge, and Lee runs towards square leg to complete the catch. Huge wicket, Jayawardene could still have hurt Australia. 132/9
38.4 to SL Malinga, right through him, backing away, Lee keeps it full, moving in late on the stumps, Malinga goes nowhere with the swipe and that is the end of the innings. 132/10
Doug Bollinger702814.00284010
5.5 to TM Dilshan, there is no getting away this time, Doug's bounce has done Dilshan, he has been getting it to take off consistently, Dilshan's instinct is to go after it as it bounces close to off stump, too high he finds out as he gets an edge on its way to Haddin. 20/1
Mitchell Johnson803103.87302010
Shane Watson702012.85261000
32.3 to KMDN Kulasekara, another one goes, Watson gets it to move in from a length, Kula is caught on the back foot, and the ball sneaks past his push to crash in to the pad and umpire Asoka has no issues with that. 118/6
Xavier Doherty1002842.80422010
25.2 to KC Sangakkara, Sanga goes this time, he comes down the track, and does what he had been wanting to for quite some time, gets to the pitch and connects well with the lofted shot, but he has got it too flat and Lee takes a fine tumbling catch at long on, so Doherty breaks the stand for Australia, it had started to assume slightly worrisome proportions. 95/3
25.4 to LPC Silva, another one, Doherty strikes again, Silva has gone for nothing, pushing forward to one pitching on the off stump, it does not turn and goes on with the angle, he plays for it, outside the line as a result, is struck on the pads, and is given right away, that would have hit leg. 95/4
27.3 to AD Mathews, whoa, that is one of the blindest of blind charges you'll ever see, team four down, and Angelo comes rushing down the track as Doherty gives it a bit of air, he is nowhere close to it and is stranded way down the track, Haddin has a simple stumping. 101/5
37.5 to S Prasanna, is that another one, Prasanna goes for the review as umpire Hill gives him out leg before, it was the tossed up ball that carried straight in, he pushed outside the line and was struck on the pad, that would have hit middle and off, and Sri Lanka have lost the review, best figures for Xavier Doherty. 132/8

Lasith Malinga721822.57312000
6.1 to SR Watson, Watson is gone, Malinga gets the breakthrough, got forward to power the drive down the ground off a length delivery around middle, that is not on on this slow pitch, it bounces, hits the bat high and mid on accepts the dolly. 26/1
6.5 to RT Ponting, they have the big one, the full toss has worked for Malinga, Ponting shuffles far across and tries to punch it away in the air, gets it front of square leg where the man takes an excellent diving catch, game on? Certainly. 26/2

Seekkuge Prasanna613235.33255100
26.1 to SE Marsh, Prasanna gets his first ODI wicket, Marsh backs away and tries to dab one sliding flat across him towards third man, gets an edge on its way to Sanga. 123/3
26.2 to MEK Hussey, two in two for Prasanna and Sanga, Hussey is gone first ball, presses forward as this one turns away from him, and Sanga snaps up another edge. 123/4
26.4 to DJ Hussey, three in four, that is a nothing shot, Hussey trying to cut off the back foot, one that was tossed up full on a length, it carries on to strike off stump, absolutely ordinary from Hussey, no way he can go back to that one. 123/5
