commentary

Over 40. Power Play Batting. 4 runs. Bowler: Clint McKay. Sri Lanka: 198/10(rr 4.95)

OUT! Caught. McKay to Mendis. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, outside edge in the air uncontrolled, fielded by Haddin. Mendis doesn't get into line and nicks behind to give McKay his fourth wicket. A convincing win for the hosts, who have been far superior in all facets of the game today. Sri Lanka's run chase never really got going, with brief hope only given by Dilshan and Chandimal. Three run outs in the top order did major damage, but a target of 306 seemed a tall order from the outset.<br>The Australian pace attack was impressive on a bouncy wicket, whilst the ground fielding was sharp and the catching sound. The batting will particularly please stand-in captain Bailey, who has delivered a crushing win in his first match as leader.

OUT! Caught. McKay to Chandimal. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge in the air uncontrolled, fielded by Haddin. Haddin takes a stunning one-handed catch diving high to his right to get rid of Chandimal, who didn't get his foot to the pitch of the ball and drove loosely. He has played a decent anchor knock, but has had little support, although he must take responsibility for the running out of two key men.

Doherty to Chandimal. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, well timed to deep extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Hussey. Drinks are taken. Mendis has started in aggressive mood, but there is surely too much for him and Chandimal to do - Sri Lanka need 144 from 16 overs.
