and Australia are out of the ICC World Twenty20 with a wide down the leg side
Jehan Mubarak and Sangakkara's 33-run partnership is SL's highest for the 5th wicket in T20Is, breaking the record of 23 between Dilshan and Chamara Silva
Great win by Sri Lanka - top knock from Sangakkara, and Australia will now spend the next few weeks preparing for the Ashes in the delightful hamlet of Leicester. "Is there a plate competition for the smaller teams to get experience?" ponders Travis Basevi, formerly an Australian. "Scotland, Bangladesh, Australia and maybe the Dutch?" It's a good call. Well, what a day we've had - Ireland beating Bangladesh, and now Australia are out of the competition. We'll be back tomorrow with live coverage of all the matches, so do join us then. From me, Will Luke, it's goodnight - and don't forget to read the bulletin. It'll be epic. Toodle pip for now.
pulled for two - is it? No! Just a single, but Australia can't win. They're out of the tournament
Ponting's face is a picture of disappointment. I'm afraid Australia are heading out of this tournament...
carves this just over mid-off who parries it for four!
6 from 8
plays and misses outside off
Punter's fuming. Seriously fed up
wide - and rightly wided. Lee knows they're going to try and whack him over the leg-side, but he can't bowl that wide and get away with it
he's nailed it! It's gone! Huge shout sails over long-on
very wide of the off stump. But not wided! How? Odd decision
wide of the off stump, Sangakkara reaches out and squeezes a run to cover
14 from the last two overs. Here comes Lee
very full and Sangakkara steals the strike with a drilled bosh to long-on, again
40 balls for the classiest of fifties
paddle swept for four - brilliant! He made it into a full toss, just dabbing it past short third man. What guts
19 from 14. Murali looks seriously tense
flung over midwicket but not timed
drilled to long-on
charges down the pitch to a slower ball, tries to paddle this wide outside off. Poor bowlers. They really can't win. He saw him coming and tossed it wider, and is penalised for it!
yorker, dug out to leg
full toss banged to mid-on
Now then! This match is still in the balance
where's this gone? Mubarak's pummelled him for six over a leaping Johnson at long-off! Tremendous stroke
30 from 19...
driven hard down the ground and long-on jogs round to save four
a bouncer, Mubarak leaves it alone expecting it to be wided on height - and it is
well timed but straight to cover
tries to uppercut but pulls out at the last moment
