Mitchell Starc402726.75112110
10.3 to MDKJ Perera, the perfect riposte from Starc at 144 kph searing into the base of middle stump! Inswinging yorker, Kusal tries to jam this out but fails. The crowd which had been charged up after the previous ball six has now been short-circuited!. 86/3
12.2 to PWH de Silva, similar line and length ball on fifth stump, Hasaranga drives hard again, big appeal given out. Didn't sound like there was any noise as it passed the bat and Hasaranga calls for DRS immediately. However, a big spike shows up on UltraEdge as the ball passes the toe edge of the bat. DO NOT QUESTION ALEEM DAR! Sri Lanka lose a review.. 94/5
Josh Hazlewood402606.50124010
Pat Cummins403428.50105021
2.3 to P Nissanka, oh dear, this is a soft wicket! It's a good length ball, just around off, and he looks to work it away on the onside. Ends up getting a top edge and it heads towards the edge of the ring around wide cover. David Warner has to step across to his left, set himself up and complete the easiest of catches, fingers pointing upwards. 15/1
17.4 to MD Shanaka, slower ball back of a length on sixth stump, Shanaka's painful innings finally comes to an end. It came in at 112 kph, he was through the shot early trying to pull this over the leg side instead of going with the angle to cut over point, top edge is the result that swirls straight up for Wade and he pouches it with little fuss.. 134/6
Glenn Maxwell1016016.0031110
Marcus Stoinis3035011.6634110
Adam Zampa401223.00120000
9.4 to KIC Asalanka, flat sweep, but straight down to Steven Smith a few yards in from deep backward square leg! How important could this be, and it comes from the most impressive Australian bowler on display thus far. Zampa has asked a few questions with some variations in flight, loop and length. Asalanka was looking very dangerous indeed. 78/2
11.5 to WIA Fernando, Avishka pays the price for slogging across the line! Flighted full on fifth stump at 87 kph, Avishka is teased into a slog sweep over midwicket and it's the stock legbreak heaving against the turn. It results in a top edge swirling over cover. Simple catch for Smith in the ring waiting for it to come into his safe hands at chest height with palms facing into his torso.. 90/4

6.5 to AJ Finch, plays this one on! It's the wrong 'un, and don't know if he picks that or not. Perhaps undone by a little bit of extra bounce. Was looking to play the cut again, but this time gets it off the inside edge. A touch unlucky, with the ball bouncing back on to the stumps, but Sri Lankan bowlers have already had their fair share of poor luck. Could this be a turning point in this chase?. 70/1
8.3 to GJ Maxwell, swings, and only finds the man at deep mid-wicket! Tossed up by Hasaranga, and he takes the invitation to have a flay at it. Has to fetch it from outside off, with a further bit of turn away after pitching. Seems to have made a decent connection, but he is hitting towards the slightly shorter side. Easy catch in the end. 80/2
Dasun Shanaka10616.0020010
14.6 to DA Warner, the missed chance costs Sri Lanka only 47 runs... Overpitched on middle stump, shovels this in the air to wide long-off, sharp catch taken sliding on his knees after covering 25 yards by Rajapaksa, holding on three yards inside the rope.. 130/3
