18.6
W
OUT! Run Out. Pat Cummins to Lakshan Sandakan. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, back to bowler, fielded by Cummins. It's all over, Cummins shows amazing awareness and agility to gather the ball and remove the stump from the ground after the bails had already been dislodged. A sorry end to the innings for Sri Lanka, however another fantastic Australian effort in the field. The hosts will require just 118 to seal the series with a game to spare thanks to a sublime bowling and fielding performance. Kusal Perera briefly threatened for the tourists, playing some gorgeous strokes on his way to 27, however no other Sri Lankan batsman could really get going against a relentless Aussie attack.

W
OUT! Stumped. Adam Zampa to Lasith Malinga. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump down the track Slog, missed to wicketkeeper, by Carey. No chance of a review saving Malinga this time, he misses with an ugly heave and Carey does the rest. Zampa gets his man eventually and Australia are on the verge of bowling Sri Lanka out.

15.4
W
OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to Isuru Udana. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep backward square leg, by Richardson. Udana gets cramped for room and can only skew this into the safe hands of Richardson. Excellent bowling, this was clearly a plan with the ideal field setting. Everything is going right for Australia tonight.

14.4
W
OUT! Stumped. Adam Zampa to Wanindu Hasaranga. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, missed to wicketkeeper, by Carey. Too easy, Carey has all the time in the world to gather and remove the bails. Zampa knew what the batsman was planning so floated this one out much wider to beat the attempted thrash.

Runs : 0 Bowler: Billy Stanlake Wickets : 1
11.2
W
OUT! Caught. Billy Stanlake to Dasun Shanaka. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge to wicketkeeper, by Carey. Prolonged appeal and eventually the finger goes up. No thoughts of a review from Shanaka so he must know he's made contact with it. Replays show a clear tickle on the top edge to leave Sri Lanka in tatters. Stanlake has looked threatening with every ball he has bowled tonight.

Runs : 0 Bowler: Ashton Agar Wickets : 1
10.5
W
OUT! Bowled. Ashton Agar to Kusal Perera. Arm length ball, middle stump on the back foot Late Cut, bottom edge to. Chopped on, Kusal Perera goes and with him go Sri Lanka's chances of posting a healthy total. This is really intelligent bowling, firing in a quick delivery that skids to cramp the batsman for room. Agar is keeping things really tight for the hosts.

Runs : 0 Bowler: Pat Cummins Wickets : 1
9.6
W
OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to Niroshan Dickwella. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to short extra cover, by Turner. Another wicket, Cummins gets his first of the evening as Dickwella gets in an awkward tangle. He was looking to clip the ball to leg and instead it balloons up into the offside for the easiest catch Turner will ever take. The bounce did the trick there for the Aussie quick.

Runs : 0 Bowler: Ashton Agar Wickets : 1
8.5
W
OUT! Caught. Ashton Agar to Avishka Fernando. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on, by Cummins. Wonderful spin bowling, Agar has the bravery to toss this up and entice the big shot. He gets rewarded as Cummins tumbles forward to complete the catch, judging it perfectly as he charged in from the rope. Sri Lanka can't get going at the moment.

5.2
W
OUT! Bowled. Billy Stanlake to Danushka Gunathilaka. Length ball, down leg side backing away Slog, missed to. The bails light up and The Gabba celebrates as one of their own takes a big wicket for Australia. The pressure was building on Gunathilaka and it has resulted in him playing a pretty filthy stroke, swinging wildly and losing his poise. Two down inside the powerplay.

1.4
W
OUT! Run Out. Billy Stanlake to Danushka Gunathilaka. Length ball, to leg on the front foot pushing, to cover, shy attempt by Turner, direct hit by Agar. Calamitous mix up with the running, hesitation from both batsmen and that means Mendis is left stranded in the middle of the pitch. Turner misses with his initial attempt to run him out but Agar anticipates well to complete the job. This isn't the start Sri Lanka wanted.

Runs : 0 Bowler: Lasith Malinga Wickets : 1
0.3
W
OUT! Caught. Lasith Malinga to Aaron Finch. Yorker, down leg side on the front foot glancing, inside edge to wicketkeeper, by Perera. Malinga gets an early breakthrough, just what his team needed if they are to have a chance of winning this match and staying alive in the series. Finch stomps off disappointed, he was looking to nurdle this around the corner and only managed to find the gloves of Perera.
