128.5SIXEranga to Michael Hussey, SIX, that is a monstrous hit from Hussey, slightly short in length from Eranga outside off, Hussey stays on the front foot and heaves it effortleesly over the deep mid wicket fence, one of the fans caught it438/5

109.3OUTSiddle to Welegedara, out Caught by Michael Hussey!! Fifer for Siddle, well deserved, it was full and pushed across him, Welegedara drives at it away from his body and gets an outside edge, which settles nicely in the hands of Hussey at gully, 6th five-wicket haul for Siddle in Tests. Welegedara c Michael Hussey b Siddle 0(3)336/10
108.5OTHERLyon to Eranga, no run, fuller and wider outside off, Eranga goes for an ugly hoick and misses it, Clarke thinks he has edged it and reviews it, but no marks on the hot spot and Eranga survives, Australia lose a review336/9
108.4OUTLyon to Nuwan Kulasekara, out Caught by (sub)Jordon Silk!! He's holed out finally, the substitute fielder Silk, who saved some crucial runs for Australia has taken the catch, once again floated up on off, Kulasekara comes down the track and heaves it miles up in the air towards deep midwicket, couldn't get the desired distance and holes out to Silk in the deep. Nuwan Kulasekara c (sub)Jordon Silk b Lyon 23(42) [4s-1 6s-2]336/9
108.1SIXLyon to Nuwan Kulasekara, SIX, he's taken full toll of it, tossed up and turning in, Kulasekara gets down and slog sweeps it way into the stands over deep mid wicket for his 2nd six336/8
108FOURSiddle to Eranga, FOUR, this is Siddle's expensive over so far, 10 runs from it, but a classic off-drive from Eranga, pitched up, in the slot, Eranga presents full face of the bat and punches it past the fielder to long off330/8
107.4FOURSiddle to Nuwan Kulasekara, FOUR, full and wide outside off, Kulasekara drives at it away from his body and the ball goes off the leading edge to deep backward point, it was in the air for a moment, but well wide of the fielder325/8

119.2OUTStarc to Eranga, out Caught by Wade!! That's it. Starc gets his 2nd five-fer in Tests. This was a on a good length and bouncing up steeply outside off. Eranga hangs his bat out and it takes the thick edge through to the keeper. A fantastic team effort that and Australia go 1-0 up in the three match series. Eranga c Wade b Starc 6(20)255/10
117.3OUTStarc to Herath, out Bowled!! Starc gets his man finally. He could have had him atleast five times previously. Full and swinging in, Herath is hit on the boot as he tries to jam it out but no luck this time. It rolls back off the boots and onto the stumps. Fourth wicket for Starc. Herath b Starc 8(26)250/9
113.5OUTStarc to Nuwan Kulasekara, out Caught by Wade!! Just as I say that, Nuwan Kulasekara departs. Good delivery from Starc. On a good length and slanting across. Kulasekara pokes out limply and it takes a thick edge through to the keeper. Nuwan Kulasekara c Wade b Starc 9(33) [4s-1]247/8
112.4FOURLyon to Nuwan Kulasekara, FOUR, slightly short and width outside off too, Kulasekara gets back and cuts it firmly through point for a boundary245/7
107.4OUTStarc to Prasanna Jayawardene, out Caught by Michael Hussey!! Starc gets the big fish. It hit one of those spots on the pitch and climbs up steeply. Nothing much Prasanna could do about it. He had to defend but it takes the bat handle and lobs up straight to Hussey at 2nd slip. Only the tail stands between Australia and a victory now. Prasanna Jayawardene c Michael Hussey b Starc 21(33) [4s-3]235/7
107.1FOURStarc to Prasanna Jayawardene, FOUR, Starc comes from round the wicket and drifts onto leg. Easy pickings for Prasanna Jayawardene and he flicks it down to the square leg fence233/6
