TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 7.10)142/6
Fall of wickets: 1-3 (Niroshan Dickwella, 0.6 ov), 2-33 (Kusal Mendis, 4.4 ov), 3-76 (Avishka Fernando, 11.6 ov), 4-99 (Oshada Fernando, 14.2 ov), 5-110 (Kusal Perera, 16.1 ov), 6-132 (Shehan Jayasuriya, 18.6 ov)
0.6 to N Dickwella, gone first ball! Gets a big leading edge into the off side, loops high towards point for a simple catch. Tried to close the face, was early on the stroke but it looked a poor option in the first place as the ball was full outside off. 3/1
18.6 to GSNFG Jayasuriya, loses leg stump. Full ball headed into leg stump, the same kind that was lifted for a six earlier. Jayasuriya though has looked for a reverse ramp, while standing on his feet. No way he's going to pull that off from there. 132/6
4.4 to BKG Mendis, picks out the man at deep square! Couldn't have found him any better. A short ball from Richardson, Mendis strikes it nicely but straight down McDermott's throat. Mendis is furious. Richardson has his first wicket of the series. 33/2
14.2 to BOP Fernando, guided straight to the keeper it seems. But he reviews after being given caught behind. Short of a length and climbing up outside off. He looks to run it down to third man as it angles back into him off the pitch. There is a tiny spike as the ball passes outside edge. Sri Lanka will lose the batsman and the review. It's a faint edge, he probably didn't feel it. But that's a fair decision and he's gone. 99/4
11.6 to WIA Fernando, chipped straight to deep backward square! Short of a length and cramping him up at the hips again. He stays on the front foot and looks to use the angle and pace to launch this behind square. But that's taken well inside. 76/3
16.1 to MDKJ Perera, taken at extra cover. Finally manages to find that fielder after many close shaves. Short of a length at off. Backs into the leg side and pulls. Slices it right up for the fielder, he barely has to move. 110/5

Fall of wickets: 1-69 (Aaron Finch, 8.5 ov), 2-85 (Steven Smith, 10.5 ov), 3-99 (Ben McDermott, 12.5 ov)
12.5 to BR McDermott, looks plumb. And given. It did strike him in front of leg though, so they'll have a chat about it...and decided not to review. Full and sliding in at leg stump as he looks to drive. Rapped on the front leg with middle and off visible. Perhaps not plumb like it appeared at first, but just clipping leg stump..replays suggest it was missing! We've all got it wrong.. 99/3
8.5 to AJ Finch, taken at long-on! Finch trying to clear long-on again. It was a full slower ball, 105kph, and Finch couldn't quite get the distance. 69/1
10.5 to SPD Smith, taken at deep square! That is a sharp take from Sandakan! A big ground so he's halfway in from the line. This is a short of a length ball that's pulled firmly to Sandakan's right. He ambles and reaches out to high to his right to hold onto this. 85/2
