Lasith Malinga1016116.10295131
43.3 to SPD Smith, bowled him with a cracking yorker! The clock says 130kph but that looked quicker. Smith tried to whip this behind square but it slid under the bat and hit the outside of off stump. Vintage Lasith!. 278/4
Nuwan Pradeep1008808.802613210
Isuru Udana1005725.70244010
42.4 to AJ Finch, skied to cover! Slower ball does the trick! This was well bowled. A back of the hand slower ball at 97kph, Finch cleared the left leg to launch but the extra bounce and lack of pace saw him sky it straight up to cover and the skipper calmly claimed the catch. The end of a wonderful innings.. 273/3
46.6 to SE Marsh, caught at deep midwicket! Well bowled! Back of the hand slower ball, outside off, he tries to heave this to the long boundary at deep midwicket, doesn't get it and Siriwardana takes the catch easily 10m inside the rope. 310/5
Thisara Perera1006706.70196110
Dhananjaya de Silva804025.00241220
16.4 to DA Warner, bowled him! Well bowled from Dhananjaya. Warner got in a tangle. It was a good length, drifting in and skidding on, Warner pressed forward initially, then pressed back to give room to cut but it was too full and it crashed into middle. 80/1
22.6 to UT Khawaja, first Warner, now Khawaja and Sri Lanka back in this! This is nicely tossed up, drifting in from around the stumps, Khawaja looks to sweep - takes him on with the short boundary in sight - hits it well but picks out Udana at deep midwicket. Massive blow.. 100/2

Mitchell Starc1005545.50345210
15.3 to MDKJ Perera, the middle stump is flattened! full, straight and the wicket comes as Kusal misses an attempted mow to the leg side. Australia get a breakthrough they desperately needed. Finch's decision to bring back his trump card works.. 115/1
36.2 to TAM Siriwardana, full, straight and boom! Plays all around this full delivery, misses. The ball tails in to beat the inside edge, deflect off the pad and smash the stumps. The procession continues.. 209/5
36.6 to NLTC Perera, he's chipped this straight to mid-on, good catch by Warner. He was looking to whip this over the infield, didn't get it off the middle. That's the end of Sri Lanka's hopes, me thinks. 217/6
38.1 to BKG Mendis, thin edge and gone! Slants a pacy delivery across Kusal who looks to heave this across the line, the pace is too good for him. Gleefully accepted by Carey.. 222/7
Pat Cummins7.503824.85284020
35.4 to AD Mathews, he's gloved this down leg! This was short, angling in towards his ribs, Mathews tried to avoid by trying to take him on with the hook shot, swivels a touch too late and gloves it through to the keeper. Massive blow.. 205/4
45.5 to N Pradeep, edged and taken! Pradeep backs away to slog, swings blindly and ends up nicking behind. Fourth win in five matches for Australia as they move to the top of the points table.. 247/10
Jason Behrendorff905916.55224100
23.5 to HDRL Thirimanne, caught behind! Behrendorff breaks through! He tried to square drive again on the up but this was much tighter to off and a little shorter, he was cramped attempting the shot, got a thin edge to Carey! Behrendorff has his first World Cup wicket. 153/2
Kane Richardson914735.22326020
32.1 to FDM Karunaratne, caught at backward point! Oh no! Three short of a magical hundred. It was short and wide, there to cut for four, but he just guided it, didn't try and get over the top of it or hit it up and over Maxwell at backward point. He picked him out. Catching practice for Maxwell. What a massive blow that is. 186/3
39.6 to I Udana, looks to back away and flat-bat this over the stands, but only manages to slice it high in the air as Finch, back-tracking from mid-off, takes an excellent catch on the move.. 236/8
41.4 to SL Malinga, chips it straight to cover, Khawaja can't ask for an easier catch. The end is near. Excellent change of pace, this is the split-finger slower ball, length on the fuller side, Malinga backed away possibly to hit it over the infield but ended up spooning it to the fielder.. 237/9
