Daniel Sams201407.0042000
Jhye Richardson402025.00132000
15.4 to KIC Asalanka, Straight up in the air and gone! It's fast and full, outside off, and Asalanka looks to smash this straight down the ground but only manages to slice it straight up in the air. Easy take for the man coming in from point.. 110/3
18.1 to PVD Chameera, Bowled him! 114kph, not all that quick but it's good enough from Richardson, as Chameera walks down the wicket and yorks himself. He looks to whip this through midwicket but can't get anything on it, as the ball crashes into middle.. 119/7
Kane Richardson4044211.0053300
17.1 to LD Chandimal, Driven hard, but straight to the man at extra cover! And Chandimal has to go. This was full and in the slot, but Finch completes a good take overhead.. 116/5
17.3 to MD Shanaka, And another one falls! This is another great bit of work by Australia in the deep, as Agar this time uses his extra reach to hold on to a good over head catch on the deep midwicket boundary. Shanaka had connected well with this flick to be fair, but Agar's got longer arms than most.. 117/6
Glenn Maxwell2021010.5021100
Ashton Agar401413.50100000
4.3 to MD Gunathilaka, not in shape! And Agar's pressure in the first two balls earns him the wicket. Tosses it up outside off, he goes for a sloggy swipe trying to hit it over long on. Ends up slicing it in the air, and Finch runs around to take it near point. 35/1
Adam Zampa402616.5052010
16.2 to P Nissanka, And he might be stumped here! Nissanka comes down the track to Zampa, who spots this and fires a leg spinner very wide of off. Nissanka is all at sea, and he turns back and creases his bat in a hurry. Wade though is too quick behind the stumps, who effects the stumping in a flash.. 113/4

Maheesh Theekshana402015.0091000
4.1 to BR McDermott, caught and bowled! And extra over of Theekshana does the trick. Drops it short on off stump. Ball skids on instead of turning either way. McDermott intially wanted to paddle/sweep but then stands tall after the bowler goes short. Then tries to punch it down the 'v', but ends up scooping the catch back to the mystery spinner. 19/1
Lahiru Kumara402225.50111040
6.2 to AJ Finch, short of a length, Finch tries to pull but is late to the shot. Top-edged, ball up into the night sky, and the extra pace does the trick with the fielder at deep backward square leg holding on, despite the ball swirling on the way down. 32/2
8.3 to AC Agar, can't cross mid off! Slower ball, length delivery wider outside off. Agar is in the mood to continue swinging, but this time he has to reach at this Kumara delivery. Toe-ends the flat-batted shot, and its gone straight up. Kusal Mendis backtracks to take a tricky catch. Fourteen dot balls in Agar's innings of 26. 49/3
Dushmantha Chameera403318.2592110
16.2 to JP Inglis, But Chameera gets his man now! This just in the corridor on a length, and Inglis maybe gets a little complacent here in trying to guide this down to third man. All he manages is a faint tickle through to the keeper.. 120/4
