50th Over
Good night everyone and thanks for tuning in. See you on Tuesday for the next game between India and Sri Lanka here in Hobart, but before that it's Australia and India in Sydney on Sunday.
Perhaps Michael Clarke will feel he should have given David Hussey more overs but even so, the Sri Lankans played excellently to beat the Australians
Mahela Jayawardene (85) and Dinesh Chandimal (80) were the main contributors for Sri Lanka, and though Dan Christian took 3/53, the best bowler of the night was Xavier Doherty (1/35)
That really was a fantastic finish by the Sri Lankans, pacing it to perfection. 280 seemed a par score and so it proved.
Over 49.2: Lee to Kulasekara, FOUR, full outside off and he thrashes it through the covers for the boundary that brings up the win for Sri Lanka by 3 wickets
Over 49.1: Lee to Perera, one run, full, on his pads and flicked away to fine leg. The new man, Kulasekara to face
49th Over
That over swung both ways but ended in favour of Sri Lanka and they now require 3 from 6 balls. Amazing stuff
Over 48.6: Christian to Perera, one run, tries to go again and inside edges down to deep square leg this time for the single
Over 48.5: Christian to Perera, SIX, full, swings across the line and he's belted this one into the stand at deep square leg. Wow!
Over 48.4: Christian to Perera, FOUR, on leg stump, swings across the line and it runs for four, remarkable stuff!
With Matthews, who is usually an excellent finisher in these circumstances, out for 24, Sri Lanka's chances are looking slim
Over 48.3: Christian to Mathews, no run, OUT, full, wide and he's driven high in the air down to David Warner at long off who holds the catch
Over 48.2: Christian to Mathews, two runs, low full toss on leg stump and he's hit that high in the air but it falls safely at deep midwicket
Over 48.1: Christian to Perera, leg bye, APPEAL, full hits the pad but outside the line and they run one leg bye
48th Over
Dan Christian will bowl the penultimate over with Sri Lanka needing 17 from 12 balls
Over 47.6: Lee to Mathews, no run, yorker, falls over his feet as he plays it into the leg side and they can't get a single as Lee fields off his own bowling
Over 47.5: Lee to Mathews, no run, yorker, pushed back to the bowler and no run there
Over 47.4: Lee to Mathews, two runs, full toss outside off, drives through the covers and that's great running to get a couple
Over 47.3: Lee to Perera, one run, yorker, driven to long on
Over 47.2: Lee to Perera, two runs, doesn't have a clue about that as he looks to work it to leg and gets a leading edge down to third man and they hurry back for a tight two
Over 47.1: Lee to Mathews, one run, full, pushed to long on and they think about two but just get the one
47th Over
