it's all over, at the stroke of the 40th over! Catching practice for Haddin, Mendis gets a length ball which he presumably wants to dab to third man, only managed a thick edge, Haddin would have caught that with his eyes shut
End of match: Comprehensive win for Australia. Outsmarted Sri Lanka in all departments, with a special mention for the fielding. Three run-outs, all specialist batsmen. Chandimal was the positive today for Sri Lanka, but had it not been for those run outs, this could have gotten closer. That's something SL need to address before their next match. Today was a communications disaster.
Richard : "Sorry. What was that about an Aussie B-side?"
It can't be too bad a team when you have the likes of Hughes, Khawaja and Finch in probably the form of his life. He didn't perform today but his time will come.
Phillip Hughes is the Man of the Match. We don't have coverage of the presentation.
Otherwise that's it from here. There's still the India-England ODI and the SA v NZ Test to keep you occupied. We're back for the second ODI at Adelaide in two days. Same time. Thanks for your company. Cheers!
Bailey seems to be catching everything, very soft dismissal, short of a length, Kula shaped to smash that over mid-on, miscued and it lobs to Bailey
he drifts wide down the leg side and another wide
drifts wide down the leg side and he tries to work it away
slower ball outside off and he opens the face and gently dabs it down to third man
pulls and it's in the air and he just clears midwicket
that was short and down the leg side and he swivels and tries to pull
full outside off and he drives him down to cover
fires that full from round the wicket and he squirts it out to the off side
Malinga walks in
Australia close to wrapping things up. Unless Kula repeats his Brisbane feat last year
straight to mid-off! It was the off cutter from Johnson, he makes room and spoons it flat and fast to Bailey who takes a low catch
that was full and wide and he chased it, ended up scooping it towards third man, unconventional
full on the off stump and he spoons it towards cover, had to scamper that single
makes room and he mistimes the cut to the off side
slower ball and Kula's eyes light up as he backs away and heaves him over deep midwicket, muscled that one
that was too short and quick for Kula, he bends down and evades it
slower delivery and he gets a bottom edge to the keeper
the slower ball and Perera doesn't read it, goes for the heave and Haddin comes well forward and takes it on the first bounce
full on the stumps and he heaves him down to deep midwicket
Loud cheers for the streaker!
tucked away behind square for a single
he continues peppering him with the short one, Kula swivels and pulls him down to fine leg, just beats fine leg
