Angelo Mathews402426.00103000
0.5 to SR Watson, bowled'im! Played it on, lands on a good length just outside off stump and there is a hint of inward movement, Watson got forward, tried to defend it into the off side, got an inside edge to rattle the stumps. 2/1
2.3 to BJ Haddin, that was unneccessary, change of pace this time, a slower one bowled on a length on the off stump, Haddin was targeting the deep midwicket boundary, was early into the shot, ended up getting a leading edge and the ball landed safely into the palms of the only MP playing international cricket. 20/2
Chanaka Welegedara4040010.0083211
Suraj Randiv402035.00122000
4.3 to DA Warner, brilliantly taken! Excellent reflexes from Jayawardene at slip, it's tossed up a hint this time and Warner's eyes lit up, tried to blaze it through the off side, the ball turned away to take the outside edge and Jayawardene, among the best slip fielders in the game, reacted superbly to snap it moving to his right. 30/3
4.4 to DJ Hussey, another one goes! Randiv's on a hat-trick. Failed to pick the straighter one, flighted outside off stump, Hussey turned the face to play it through midwicket, stepped out of the crease, missed and Sangakkara did the rest. 30/4
10.6 to MJ Clarke, Randiv's super day continues, Clarke makes room to cut, he misses and the off bail is on the floor, there's some confusion whether the ball hit stumps or whether it was the keeper's gloves that dislodged the bail, replays show the ball hit the top of offstump, and Clarke has to go. 67/5

Dirk Nannes301926.3391100
2.3 to DPMD Jayawardene, he's found fine leg, some more bounce on this delivery, shorter and he tried to pull it behind square, got way too much elevation and not much distance, Steven Smith accepted it gleefully in the deep. 16/1
4.5 to ST Jayasuriya, he's given him! Jayasuriya tries to swing that across the line, Nannes had bowled it full on middle, the batsman missed and thereafter there was no real doubt as to where that was heading, Australia have the upper hand. 26/3
Shaun Tait201015.0081020
3.3 to KC Sangakkara, gone! That came onto him quickly, dropped it short on middle and leg, tried to hook it past square leg, was a little late in playing that, it caught the glove and Haddin made no mistake behind the stumps. 18/2
Shane Watson302709.0063100
Mitchell Johnson3.201534.50111010
6.2 to TM Dilshan, outstanding catch by Cameron White! Short and Dilshan, it seemed, had played a delightful cut, it was uppish and White, stationed at point, flung himself to his left, his wrong side, to clasp that with both hands, superb stuff, it's his day. 48/4
6.6 to AD Mathews, Australia are on top, pitched up and he sensed an opportunity, was trying to clear extra cover but ended up slicing it straight to David Hussey running in from deep cover. 49/5
16.2 to BAW Mendis, bowled'im, Australia have thrashed Sri Lanka, full on middle, makes room to strike that over extra cover, misses and the stumps take a beating. 87/10
Steven Smith411223.00130010
11.4 to CK Kapugedera, bowled'im! Flat, quicker and bowled full and he failed to connect, tried to force it through the leg side, missed and it crashed into the stumps. 73/6
13.3 to LD Chandimal, Sri Lanka are sinking now, tossed up, his eyes light up, charges down the track to dismiss him over long-on, it turns away to beat the swing of the bat and Haddin does the rest. 83/8
Michael Clarke10212.0040000
15.2 to SL Malinga, Malinga holes out, tossed up delivery on the off and he wishes to send it into the stands behind deep midwicket but finds Steve Smith who takes it calmly running a few steps from wide long-on. 84/9
