Kasun Rajitha28510313.6712914104
92.5 to JA Burns, chopped on! Burns' innings comes to an end. Good length wider of off, almost a sixth stump line, he pushed his hands well away from his body to defend it but it wasn't with conviction, he gets a thick inside edge and drags it onto leg stump. 404/5
Vishwa Fernando30312634.2012317040
3.6 to MS Harris, caught at point! Another poorly executed shot! It was a full wide out-swinger, he was tempted into the big square drive, he got down on one knee and crunched it flat and hard and straight to point, Chamika gets low and takes and excellent catch!. 11/1
5.3 to UT Khawaja, caught at second slip! This was a lazy stroke. A full out-swinger wide of off, another tempter, Khawaja just wafts his bat at a drive with no footwork, reaching miles away from his body, gets a thick edge that flies head high to slip and the catch is well taken by Mendis who is a good gripper!. 15/2
72.6 to TM Head, and the stand is broken! Full, straight, playing across the line and that is very out. He briefly chats to Burns about a review, but doesn't waste one. 336/4
Chamika Karunaratne22013015.908320006
8.4 to M Labuschagne, caught behind! Chamika has a Test wicket! What a delivery! Good length, angled in, Labuschagne has to press forward to defend, it wobbled and hit the seam, nips away, catches the edge and Dickwella takes the catching moving to his right!. 28/3

BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Mitchell Starc13.325454.00598000
40.3 to LD Chandimal, gloved to the keeper, Starc strikes! A well-directed short delivery at 148kph. He was in two minds whether to play or leave, started to go for a pull or hook, then decided against the stroke but left his hands above his head and the ball glances them to Paine.. 120/3
58.2 to DM de Silva, what's happened here? He's out hit wicket I think! It's the short ball again, Dhananjaya is beaten for pace as he tries to pull. The ball glances off the glove or helmet and then as the bat swings around it clatters into the top of the stumps. Must have taken the helmet because Paine caught it. Either way, it's out. Not sure why Dhananjaya hung around, really, but was a very quick confirmation from the third umpire. Was clearly in the motion of playing the stroke, which is what's required for hit wicket. 180/4
58.5 to FDM Karunaratne, caught a gully, Starc is getting back! Full, wider outside off, a real tempter and Karunaratne goes for the drive, skews it in the air for a comfortable catch. 181/5
68.1 to MDK Perera, caught behind! 140kph, warm up delivery, short and wide, Perera tried to cut, got a thin edge through to Paine and it's a very simple catch. That was all a bit too easy.. 215/8
68.3 to MVT Fernando, Bowled him! Five for Starc! 148kph rocket, angled in on a good length, just straightened off the seam a touch, he was caught leg side of it, groped at it as he was squared up, it beat the outside edge and crashed into the top of off!. 215/9
Jhye Richardson1544903.26676000
Pat Cummins1433212.28653000
34.1 to BKG Mendis, what a beauty! Significant inroads for Australia now, and that's a ripper. A back-of-a-length delivery, pitches around off stump, holds its line to beat the outside edge and takes off stump. A lovely delivery.. 101/2
Nathan Lyon2467022.911099000
31.6 to HDRL Thirimanne, edged, taken at slip! Lyon gets his reward. A length ball outside off, this grips significantly and turns, Thirimanne pushing at it and sends a regulation edge to Khawaja. 90/1
59.5 to C Karunaratne, and another, thick inside edge which loops to leg slip! Regulation stuff from Lyon, but lovely bowling. Plenty of overspin, starts outside off, turns and takes an inside edge into the pad which loops up to Starc. 182/6
Marnus Labuschagne21512.5080000
67.1 to N Dickwella, that's pretty straight, and given lbw! Misses the sweep, but he has called for the review. A full delivery, pitches around middle. Ah, has this taken the glove before the pad? There's a very small murmur on Snicko. Is that enough to overturn? Third umpire rocking and rolling this. Says it's not conclusive. Taking shows it's hitting the top of middle so that stays on-field!. 215/7

Vishwa Fernando1114313.90435010
6.5 to JA Burns, caught at second slip! Another sensational catch from Mendis! Unbelievable. Good length, angled across, he was caught on the crease, it just nipped off the seam, caught the edge and flew low to Mendis' left, it wouldn't have carried to first, he dives low to his left and takes a stunning catch. Well bowled and well caught.. 25/2
Kasun Rajitha1326424.92539024
3.4 to MS Harris, edged and caught at second slip! Superb catch diving forward by Mendis! 131kph, fuller length wobbling outside off, he doesn't get a good stride in, tries to drive firmly away from his body, it just nips off the seam a touch, gets a thick edge that flies low to second slip and Mendis coming forward takes another outstanding catch!. 16/1
14.4 to M Labuschagne, edged, caught behind! Australia three down for not many again. In the channel outside off, he's been solid so far but feels for this and it's a neat catch to Dickwella's right. Very loose stroke. 37/3

Mitchell Starc1824652.55825010
8.1 to FDM Karunaratne, through him! There's the first of the day...a lovely delivery, just short of a length, nips back off the seam, beats Karunaratne's forward push and just skims the leg stump. In fact, just clipped the leg bail. Both bowlers getting the ball to tail back today. 18/1
12.6 to LD Chandimal, edged, just carries to third slip! That's a sharp, low grab by Labuschagne. Chandimal is standing his ground so this will go upstairs. Soft signal is out. Back of a length at off stump, he's squared up, and that appears to have gone straight in. Fingers under the ball. 28/2
28.2 to N Dickwella, Bowled him! 147kph and it shot a touch low as he played from the crease! It was a fuller length, he stayed back, caught on the crease, it skidded lower, shot under the bat as he was squared up defending and crashed into off stump!. 83/4
28.3 to MDKJ Perera, Caught behind! Inside edge! The double bluff! He was sitting back expecting a short ball, it was full outside off and tailing back a touch, he drives without any footwork, gets a thin inside edge and Paine moves forward to his right and takes a good catch just above the ground. 83/5
50.6 to MVT Fernando, Bowled him! Starc gets 10! Australia win! 146kph, searing yorker, gun barrel straight fired into the base of middle and off, he gets the feet out of the way and jams the bat down but misses and it crashes into the base of the stumps!. 149/10
Jhye Richardson912913.22425010
31.6 to DM de Silva, chipped straight to mid-on! A pretty weak shot, a good-length delivery on off stump, de Silva aiming to flick to the leg side, the bottom hand takes over and he just sends a pretty simple catch to mid-on. He's been keen to take everything leg side and it's cost him. 97/6
Nathan Lyon1315103.92483100
Pat Cummins821531.87402000
22.4 to HDRL Thirimanne, caught and bowled! Sensational athleticism from Cummins! This was a quick short ball, gets some extra bounce that gets big on Thirimanne, he tries to fend from in front of his face, it pops up off the shoulder of the bat, it ballooned back down the wicket, Cummins sprinted forward and to his left from his follow through, dives forward and takes the catch inches above the turf.. 58/3
45.4 to C Karunaratne, caught behind! 138kph, good length wide of off, he is lured into a drive away from his body, he flashed hard, but got a thin edge and it flies straight through to Paine. Easy catch.. 143/8
49.1 to MDK Perera, caught behind! Perfect delivery. Would have got a lot of top order players out. 135kph, good length, fourth stump line, it wobbles away off the seam, he pushes at it from the crease, gets a thin edge through to Paine. The end is near. 148/9
Marnus Labuschagne31612.00151000
44.6 to BKG Mendis, caught at cover! That was a bit soft. He looped up a leg break full and wide of off, he was tempted into a booming drive, he strides out but doesn't get all his weight over the front foot, and slaps the drive chest high to Patterson at cover! Easy catch.. 143/7
