Melbourne Cricket Ground
1st T20I

19.6:  FOUR! Andrew Tye to Chamara Kapugedera. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Chamara Kapugedara creams it through the covers to pick up the runs to complete the victory.

An excellent game of cricket. In the end, Sri Lanka were able to find the boundary on more occasions than their opponents, which probably had an effect on the result. Dilshan Munaweera and Asela Gunaratne were the two men who moved things along quickly for the visitors, and they were able to sneak home on the last ball to get the win. They go 1-0 up in the series.

19.5:  Andrew Tye to Chamara Kapugedera. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Turner.

19.4:  Andrew Tye to Seekkuge Prasanna. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, bottom edge to silly point for 1 run, fielded by Tye.

19.3:  Andrew Tye to Chamara Kapugedera. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Zampa.

19.2:  APPEAL! Andrew Tye to Seekkuge Prasanna. Slower ball short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, hit body to wicketkeeper for 1 run, shy attempt by Paine, direct hit by Tye, appeal made for Run Out. Prasanna is through the shot too early, it clips the shoulder on the way through to Paine, and they try and pinch a quick single. Paine misses the stumps at the striker's end, Tye hits them at the non-striker's, but he gets home safely.

19.1:  Andrew Tye to Seekkuge Prasanna. Slower ball short, outside off stump on the back foot, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Paine.

18.6:  James Faulkner to Seekkuge Prasanna. Slower length ball, down leg side moves in front Slog, hit pad to short extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Faulkner.

18.5:  James Faulkner to Chamara Kapugedera. Slower ball full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to deep backward point for 1 run, fielded by Turner.

18.4:  James Faulkner to Chamara Kapugedera. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Paine.

18.3:  James Faulkner to Seekkuge Prasanna. Slower length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to short fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Stanlake.

18.3:  Wide James Faulkner to Seekkuge Prasanna. Slower ball full toss, wide outside off stump no foot movement driving, missed to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Paine.

18.2:  James Faulkner to Chamara Kapugedera. Slower ball back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Henriques.

18.1:  James Faulkner to Seekkuge Prasanna. Slower ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, bottom edge to slips for 1 run, fielded by Paine.

17.6:  Ashton Turner to Seekkuge Prasanna. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Henriques.

17.5:  FOUR! Ashton Turner to Seekkuge Prasanna. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, well timed past third man for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Henriques. Slashed through backward point by Seekkuge. He slaps it out the middle of the bat and it skips away to the fence, with the help of some bad fielding in the deep.

17.4:  Ashton Turner to Seekkuge Prasanna. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Paine.

17.3:  OUT! L.B.W. Ashton Turner to Milinda Siriwardana. Off break length ball, off stump on the back foot working, hit pad. Bit of a shocker from the umpire here. Turner doesn't turn the ball that much, and this one was sliding past leg stump as Siriwardana went to tuck the ball into the legside. Australia get some luck there.

17.2:  Ashton Turner to Chamara Kapugedera. Off break length ball, to leg on the front foot flick, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Head.

17.1:  OUT! Stumped. Ashton Turner to Asela Gunaratne. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, missed to wicketkeeper, by Paine. End of a marvellous innings from Gunaratne. He goes for the reverse sweep, and gets his feet in a tangle. He ends up stood out of the crease, and Paine whip off the bails before he can ground his bat.

16.6:  Pat Cummins to Asela Gunaratne. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Stanlake.

16.5:  Pat Cummins to Milinda Siriwardana. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to leg gully for 1 run, fielded by Paine.

16.4:  Pat Cummins to Asela Gunaratne. Half volley, off stump on the front foot flick, to deep backward square leg for 1 run, fielded by Tye.

16.3:  FOUR! Pat Cummins to Asela Gunaratne. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control past third man for 4 runs. Just evades the fielder! Gunaratne chops it down to the third man boundary, the fielder out there goes for the catch, but he cannot get a hand to it.

16.2:  Pat Cummins to Asela Gunaratne. Slower ball short, outside off stump backing away cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Paine.

16.1:  FOUR! Pat Cummins to Asela Gunaratne. Yorker, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Dug out of the block hole from Gunaratne, and he dabs it down to the third man region. Because of Cummins' pace, it races off the bat and cannot be stopped.

15.6:  James Faulkner to Asela Gunaratne. Half volley, down leg side on the front foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Cummins.

15.5:  FOUR! James Faulkner to Asela Gunaratne. Slower length ball, down leg side on the front foot flick, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Another boundary! Faulkner strays onto the pads and it is clipped past short fine leg. Super innings from Gunaratne this.

15.4:  FOUR! James Faulkner to Asela Gunaratne. Slower length ball, to leg backing away cutting, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Superb from Gunaratne. He steps away and thrashes it behind backward point for four.

15.3:  James Faulkner to Asela Gunaratne. Half volley, to leg on the front foot driving, to third man for 2 runs, fielded by Henriques.

15.2:  James Faulkner to Asela Gunaratne. Slower ball back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Tye.

15.1:  James Faulkner to Asela Gunaratne. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot reverse sweeping, hit pad to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Faulkner.

14.6:  Pat Cummins to Asela Gunaratne. Half volley, outside off stump backing away driving, bottom edge to third man for 1 run, fielded by Stanlake.

14.5:  Pat Cummins to Asela Gunaratne. Length ball, wide outside off stump moves in front Scoop, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Paine.

14.4:  FOUR! Pat Cummins to Asela Gunaratne. Half volley, middle stump backing away driving, well timed past third man for 4 runs. Great batting from Gunaratne. He takes a couple of steps outside leg stump and carves it behind backward point for four.

14.3:  Pat Cummins to Asela Gunaratne. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Tye.

14.2:  Pat Cummins to Milinda Siriwardana. Half volley, down leg side on the front foot working, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Faulkner.

14.1:  Pat Cummins to Asela Gunaratne. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge to third man for 1 run, fielded by Stanlake.

13.5:  FOUR! Andrew Tye to Milinda Siriwardana. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs. In the slot from Tye, and Siriwardana belts it over mid off for a one bounce four. An expensive over here, just what the visitors were after.

13.4:  Andrew Tye to Asela Gunaratne. Slower ball short, outside off stump backing away cutting, to backward point for 1 run, shy attempt by Head.

13.3:  FOUR! Andrew Tye to Asela Gunaratne. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled past fine leg for 4 runs. He gets lucky this time. A half hearted pull comes off a top edge, and flies over the keeper's head for four.

13.2:  Andrew Tye to Asela Gunaratne. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Paine.

13.1:  FOUR! Andrew Tye to Asela Gunaratne. Slower length ball, off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Change in pace, and Gunaratne spots it quickly. He advances down the track, and lofts it over the top for four.

12.6:  Adam Zampa to Asela Gunaratne. Leg spinner length ball, off stump backing away driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Turner.

12.1:  Adam Zampa to Asela Gunaratne. Leg spinner short, off stump on the back foot pulling, to mid on for 1 run, dropped catch by Finch, fielded by Zampa. Drag down delivery from Zampa again, and it nearly brings another wicket. Finch dives full length to his left, and gets one hand to it, but the ball doesn't stick. Saved three runs.

11.6:  James Faulkner to Asela Gunaratne. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Stanlake.

11.5:  James Faulkner to Milinda Siriwardana. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot dropped, to cover for 1 run, fielded by Klinger.

10.4:  OUT! Caught. Adam Zampa to Dilshan Munaweera. Leg spinner back of a length, off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid wicket, by Finch. Not a great delivery from Zampa, but it brings a crucial wicket for the home side. Munaweera fluffs a pull shot to a shorter delivery, and it spoons up into the hands of mid wicket.

10.3:  Adam Zampa to Dilshan Munaweera. Leg spinner back of a length, off stump on the back foot Late Cut, to third man for 2 runs, fielded by Turner.

10.2:  Adam Zampa to Asela Gunaratne. Leg spinner half volley, middle stump on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Henriques.

8.5:  OUT! Caught. Adam Zampa to Niroshan Dickwella. Quicker ball back of a length, middle stump on the back foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to slips, by Klinger. Brilliant response from Zampa. He gets the much needed breakthrough for Australia. He fired this one into the pitch and it skidded through with some pace. Dickwella tried to work it into the legside, but closed the bat face too early, and it popped up off the edge for a simple take.

8.4:  FOUR! Adam Zampa to Niroshan Dickwella. Googly length ball, to leg on the front foot reverse sweeping, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Lovely execution of the reverse sweep. He nails it out the middle of the bat, and smacks it into the gap to pick up the boundary.

7.6:  Ashton Turner to Niroshan Dickwella. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track working, to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Faulkner.

Sri Lanka have made an excellent start to the chase. They are above the rate, and looking good at the minute. Wickets can easily change that though.

7.5:  Ashton Turner to Dilshan Munaweera. Off break length ball, to leg backing away driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Faulkner.

7.4:  Ashton Turner to Niroshan Dickwella. Off break half volley, off stump down the track working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Head.

5.4:  FOUR! Andrew Tye to Dilshan Munaweera. Slower ball half volley, down leg side backing away flick, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Superb from Munaweera. He is racing along here. Tye tries to follow him down leg, but he whips it behind square leg to the boundary.

5.1:  FOUR! Andrew Tye to Dilshan Munaweera. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. Streaky boundary on this occasion. Munaweera wafts outside his off stump and gets a thick edge to the third man boundary. Too fine for the fielder to cut off.

4.6:  James Faulkner to Niroshan Dickwella. Slower length ball, outside off stump backing away driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Paine.

4.5:  James Faulkner to Dilshan Munaweera. Slower ball back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Tye.

4.2:  FOUR! James Faulkner to Dilshan Munaweera. Length ball, to leg down the track driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. Great start for Sri Lanka here. Munaweera charges down to Faulkner and crunches him back down the ground. He pierces the infield, and it runs away to the fence.

4.1:  James Faulkner to Dilshan Munaweera. Length ball, to leg on the front foot driving, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Faulkner.

3.6:  SIX! Billy Stanlake to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, to leg moves in front Scoop, well timed in the air under control over fine leg for 6 runs. Incredible stroke. Stanlake chucks it down at 90 mph, and Dickwella still has the bottle to ramp him over fine leg for six. Execution was brilliant.

3.6:  Wide Billy Stanlake to Niroshan Dickwella. Bouncer, down leg side moves in front Scoop, missed to third man for 5 runs.

3.5:  Billy Stanlake to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, off stump moves in front Scoop, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Paine.

3.3:  FOUR! Billy Stanlake to Dilshan Munaweera. Short, outside off stump backing away cutting, well timed in the air under control past third man for 4 runs. Three in a row. Too short from Stanlake this time, and Munaweera just needs a bit of bat on it to get it over backward point's head.

3.2:  FOUR! Billy Stanlake to Dilshan Munaweera. Length ball, off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control past deep backward point for 4 runs.

3.1:  FOUR! Billy Stanlake to Dilshan Munaweera. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. Hammered back down the ground by Munaweera. A good length delivery and he just hit through the line back past the bowler.

2.6:  FOUR! Pat Cummins to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, down leg side backing away flick, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Dickwella shuffles down the track and whips it through the legside for four. No one out in the deep in the first six, so it runs away with ease.

2.5:  Pat Cummins to Niroshan Dickwella. Yorker, to leg backing away defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Cummins.

2.4:  Pat Cummins to Niroshan Dickwella. Short, down leg side backing away cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Paine.

1.5:  FOUR! Billy Stanlake to Niroshan Dickwella. Short, down leg side backing away hooking, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Dickwella clubs to leg again. This time behind square as Stanlake gives him the bouncer. A flap from the opener races off the bat to the boundary.

1.3:  FOUR! Billy Stanlake to Niroshan Dickwella. In-swinging back of a length, down leg side backing away pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep square leg for 4 runs. Dickwella steps away and heaves the ball over the legside. Stanlake tried to follow him but he was still able to free the arms. Hit sweetly to the fence.

1.2:  Billy Stanlake to Niroshan Dickwella. In-swinging back of a length, down leg side backing away cutting, to cover for no runs, fielded by Head.

1.1:  APPEAL! Billy Stanlake to Niroshan Dickwella. In-swinging length ball, to leg on the front foot working, hit pad to slips for no runs, fielded by Finch, appeal made for L.B.W. Big inswinger from Stanlake, and he traps Dickwella on the front pad. On first glance, it looked as though it was shaping past leg stump, but the replays show that it would crashed into the wickets. A hint of fortune for Sri Lanka now.

1.1:  Wide Billy Stanlake to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, down leg side on the back foot pulling, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Paine.

The perfect line and length, nibbling away from the left hander, who has to play at it. He pokes at the ball and gets a feather through to Paine. Early strike for Australia.

19.6:  FOUR! Nuwan Kulasekara to James Faulkner. Full toss, down leg side backing away working, past deep mid wicket for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Gunaratne. Clipped to deep mid wicket, it should be a two at the least, but the fielder lets it right through him to the boundary.

So Australia have posted a decent total. Contributions throughout, but the top three did the bulk of the scoring. Some good fielding and some poor fielding from Sri Lanka in those twenty overs. A gettable total to chase down, but the hosts will be favourites to defend this, as the par is 155 on this ground.

19.5:  Nuwan Kulasekara to James Faulkner. Yorker, down leg side backing away flick, to deep backward square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Siriwardana.

19.4:  OUT! Run Out. Nuwan Kulasekara to James Faulkner. Half volley, middle stump backing away driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Kapugedera, by Kulasekara. Paine goes for a diamond duck! Unselfish play from the wicketkeeper, trying to get Faulkner on strike. He sacrifices his wicket to do so. Sharp fielding from Sri Lanka there.

19.4:  Wide Nuwan Kulasekara to James Faulkner. Full toss, down leg side backing away flick, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Dickwella.

19.3:  Nuwan Kulasekara to James Faulkner. Length ball, down leg side down the track working, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, direct hit by Gunaratne.

19.1:  FOUR! Nuwan Kulasekara to James Faulkner. Short, outside off stump down the track cutting, well timed in the air under control past third man for 4 runs. Banged into the pitch, Faulkner shimmies down the track and lifts the ball over to the third man boundary. Excellent batting.

18.6:  Lasith Malinga to James Faulkner. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Gunaratne.

18.5:  OUT! Caught. Lasith Malinga to Ashton Turner. Full toss, down leg side backing away Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Prasanna. Two in two for Malinga. Not a great delivery either from the Sri Lankan veteran, but he will take the wicket! Turner gives himself room also, but he is followed down leg. Turner miscues his shot, and picks out Prasanna in the deep again.

18.4:  OUT! Caught. Lasith Malinga to Travis Head. Half volley, outside off stump backing away driving, well timed in the air under control to deep cover, by Prasanna. Head steps away to give himself room to hit to off, gets the perfect ball to throw his hands at, but picks out the man in the deep. Hit cleanly out the middle, it hardly gets above head height, and is taken nicely on the boundary edge.

18.3:  Lasith Malinga to Travis Head. Half volley, down leg side backing away driving, in the air under control to long on for 2 runs.

18.2:  Lasith Malinga to Ashton Turner. Half volley, down leg side backing away driving, to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Gunaratne.

17.5:  Nuwan Kulasekara to Ashton Turner. Full toss, down leg side on the front foot driving, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Kapugedera.

17.4:  Nuwan Kulasekara to Travis Head. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed to third man for 1 run, fielded by Bandara.

16.3:  Lasith Malinga to Ashton Turner. Full toss, to leg on the front foot flick, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Prasanna.

16.2:  FOUR! Lasith Malinga to Ashton Turner. Yorker, middle stump on the front foot flick, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. How did that go for four? The perfect yorker from Malinga, right in the block hole, and Turner manages to get some bat on it. It squirts away behind square, and trickles away to the fine leg boundary.

16.1:  Lasith Malinga to Ashton Turner. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Prasanna.

15.6:  SIX! Vikum Sanjaya to Travis Head. Slower length ball, down leg side on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs. Big maximum for Head. He spots the change in pace immediately, then hoicks it over cow corner with great effect.

15.6:  Wide Vikum Sanjaya to Travis Head. Yorker, wide outside off stump no foot movement driving, missed to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Dickwella.

15.5:  Vikum Sanjaya to Travis Head. Slower length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Prasanna.

15.1:  OUT! Caught. Vikum Sanjaya to Moises Henriques. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long on, by Kapugedera. In the slot for Henriques, but his connection is poor. He tries to loft it over the boundary, but it loops down the throat of the long on fielder. Easy catch for the man in the deep.

14.6:  Lakshan Sandakan to Travis Head. Chinaman back of a length, middle stump on the back foot pulling, well timed to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, run save by Siriwardana.

14.5:  Lakshan Sandakan to Moises Henriques. Googly half volley, outside off stump down the track driving, thick edge to third man for 3 runs, mis-fielded by Tharanga, fielded by Malinga.

14.4:  SIX! Lakshan Sandakan to Moises Henriques. Chinaman length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Wonderful stroke from Henriques. He skips down the pitch and nails it back down the ground. Full extension of the arms and hit through the line of the ball.

14.3:  Lakshan Sandakan to Travis Head. Chinaman half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to long off for 1 run, fielded by Kapugedera.

14.2:  Lakshan Sandakan to Moises Henriques. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep cover for 3 runs, fielded by Bandara.

12.2:  Seekkuge Prasanna to Travis Head. Leg spinner back of a length, off stump on the back foot pushing, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Kulasekara.

12.1:  Seekkuge Prasanna to Travis Head. Leg spinner back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to backward point for no runs, dropped catch by Tharanga. Wide, and slashed straight to backward point. The Sri Lankan captain has the simple task of completing the catch, but takes his eyes off it, and it bursts through to give Head another life.

11.6:  Asela Gunaratne to Travis Head. Off cutter half volley, down leg side on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Kulasekara.

11.5:  Asela Gunaratne to Moises Henriques. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Kapugedera.

11.3:  OUT! Caught. Asela Gunaratne to Aaron Finch. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, top edge in the air uncontrolled to short fine leg, by Malinga. Finch now goes. He fancied smashing Gunaratne to all parts, but it has caused his downfall. A length delivery, he went to crack it over long on, but tried to hit it too hard and lost his shape. The ball went straight up, and Malinga took a smart grab.

11.2:  Asela Gunaratne to Aaron Finch. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot pulling, in the air under control to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Siriwardana.

11.1:  SIX! Asela Gunaratne to Aaron Finch. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Gunaratne is introduced into the attack and is deposited out the park first ball. Finch takes a small stride and belts it way back over the long on boundary.

10.6:  APPEAL! Lakshan Sandakan to Travis Head. Googly length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella, appeal made for Stumped. They go upstairs for the stumping, but Head has his backfoot planted inside the crease, so no dangers there.

10.5:  Lakshan Sandakan to Travis Head. Chinaman length ball, to leg on the front foot working, hit pad to short leg for no runs, fielded by Dickwella.

10.4:  Lakshan Sandakan to Travis Head. Chinaman half volley, middle stump on the front foot working, to long on for 2 runs, fielded by Prasanna.

10.3:  OUT! Caught. Lakshan Sandakan to Michael Klinger. Googly half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, top edge in the air uncontrolled to slips, by Malinga. Sri Lanka finally get the breakthrough. Klinger doesn't pick the googly, and goes to launch the ball down the ground. The spin away causes the ball to take the edge, and it loops up to short third man for a simple catch.

10.2:  Lakshan Sandakan to Aaron Finch. Chinaman length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, hit pad to gully for 1 run, fielded by Tharanga.

9.5:  SIX! Seekkuge Prasanna to Aaron Finch. Leg spinner length ball, to leg on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Finch sits right back in the crease, and heaves the ball down to the long on boundary. All power in the shot, and he has enough to clear the ropes by a distance.

9.4:  Seekkuge Prasanna to Aaron Finch. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump backing away driving, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Prasanna.

9.3:  Seekkuge Prasanna to Aaron Finch. Leg spinner length ball, to leg backing away slog sweeping, bat-pad to slips for no runs, fielded by Dickwella.

7.5:  FOUR! Seekkuge Prasanna to Aaron Finch. Leg spinner full toss, down leg side backing away driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Floated up outside leg, Finch shuffles away and then drills it wide of the long on fielder. Rocketed away to the fence.

7.3:  Seekkuge Prasanna to Aaron Finch. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the back foot driving, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Kulasekara.

6.6:  Lakshan Sandakan to Aaron Finch. Quicker length ball, off stump on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Kapugedera.

A decent start for Australia. Not the quickest, but they are wicketless and have a nice platform to big in the last ten overs.

4.4:  FOUR! Vikum Sanjaya to Michael Klinger. Length ball, off stump on the front foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Sanjaya strays in line now. Onto the pads of Klinger, who gets a fine tickle past short fine leg to the boundary. Too easy.

4.3:  FOUR! Vikum Sanjaya to Michael Klinger. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Banged into the pitch, and it sits up nicely for Klinger to swivel on. He drags it behind square to the fence.

3.5:  FOUR! Nuwan Kulasekara to Michael Klinger. Slower length ball, off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled past long off for 4 runs. Slower delivery, it isn't picked, and Klinger gets away with it. Right off the bottom of the bat, but he still managed to get the ball over mid off's head. Only just cleared the man.

2.5:  FOUR! Vikum Sanjaya to Michael Klinger. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot working, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Whipped from outside off through mid wicket handsomely. Great use of the wrists to manoeuvre the ball into the gap.

2.3:  Vikum Sanjaya to Michael Klinger. Length ball, off stump down the track defending, to cover for no runs, fielded by Siriwardana.

1.5:  FOUR! Nuwan Kulasekara to Aaron Finch. Full toss, to leg on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Poor delivery from Kulasekara. A shin high, leg stump full toss is lifted over the top by Finch and it raced away to the fence.
