OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to Nuwan Pradeep. Half volley, down leg side backing away driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Carey. Pradeep gets caught behind trying to drive the ball back to the bowler. That wicket brings the game to a close with Australia coming out victors. At the start of the Sri Lanka innings you sensed they could pull this off, they were scoring at a great rate and hadn't conceded a wicket. But once Kusal was dismissed the tables turned and they were struggling to get runs. For Sri Lanka this is another game where they have failed to bat for 50 overs, for Australia another win, and another good performance, a spot in the top four is looking even more realistic now.

FOUR! Thisara Perera to Glenn Maxwell. Yorker, outside off stump moves in front working, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Maxwell works this one onto the leg-side to bring up 334 and the close of the Australian innings. A good total, but after Finch and Smith's innings' you would've backed them to get over 350. A good score none-the-less and it will take some chasing down from a Sri Lankan side that has been poor when called upon to bat.

Start of Australia Innings. Good morning and welcome to the game between Australia and Sri Lanka taking place at the Oval. On paper this should be a routine win for Australia given Sri Lanka's poor form with the bat, having not batted the full complement of overs yet in the tournament. Australia however come into this game off the back of good results against Pakistan and West Indies where solid bowling was required to get both results. With Sri Lanka having two matches abandoned the players will come into this one recharged and ready to improve on their poor performance at the World Cup so far. To beat Australia today will take something special on both sides so they will be looking at their talisman Lasith Malinga for a quality bowling display today. These two teams met in a warm up game just before the World Cup and Australia looked in good form then, let's see if they can repeat the victory here today.

OUT! Caught. Pat Cummins to Nuwan Pradeep. Half volley, down leg side backing away driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Carey. Pradeep gets caught behind trying to drive the ball back to the bowler. That wicket brings the game to a close with Australia coming out victors. At the start of the Sri Lanka innings you sensed they could pull this off, they were scoring at a great rate and hadn't conceded a wicket. But once Kusal was dismissed the tables turned and they were struggling to get runs. For Sri Lanka this is another game where they have failed to bat for 50 overs, for Australia another win, and another good performance, a spot in the top four is looking even more realistic now.
