Over 21.4 Dilruwan Perera bowls a tossed up delivery to SE Marshout Caught by Kusal Mendis!! Superb catch at short-leg. Marsh on the front foot to defend, it was flicked off the glove and the ball was heading towards his face and he takes it superbly.

Over 26.1 HMRKB Herath bowls a quicker arm ball to SPD Smith, out LBW!Smith goes deep in the crease and looks for the extravagant cut but is too close for comfort, ends up playing around it as his off-stump knocked out.

Over 29.6 Dilruwan Perera bowls it flat in the air to DA Warner, out Bowled!! Warner gets his foot down and gets his bat out to cover the ball from pinging his off-stump, but is completely missed as the ball sneaks past his back pad and knocks the leg stump out.

Over 31.6DilruwanPerera bowls flighted delivery to MC Henriques, the batsman is short of his crease at the batting end and is Run Out! .Runout at the striker end

Over 38.3 HMRKB Herath bowls a tossed up delivery to Peter Nevill, out Caught by Mathews!! Nevill attempts the sweep, has to fetch it from outside off, doesn't account for the bounce and the top-edge lobs to Mathews at slip.

Over 40.6 HMRKB Herath bowls a quicker arm ball to Mitchell Starc, out Caught by K Perera!!Starc didn't pick it, thought it was the conventional delivery and went for the slog sweep, the top-edge flew towards square leg and MDKJ Perera running across and takes it well

Over 42.6 HMRKB Herath bowls it flat in the air to J Hazlewood, out Stumped!! Hazlewood was drawn into the drive, is beaten by the turn and Perera is quick to seize the opportunity. Takes the bails off.

Over 44.1 HMRKB Herath bowls a tossed up delivery to Nathan Lyon, out LBW! Lyon shuffled across to sweep, missed and was struck in front of middle stump. Since Australia had the review, Lyon went for a review. However, it was out in the end.
