Australia 74 All Out vs Sri Lanka Highlights Videos:
Australia were 3-21 in the eighth over.New boy Moises Henriques, back in the side after years out, went balls later with the score 6-30.Mitchell Johnson, Matthew Wade and Clint McKay quickly followed them back to the dressing room as slinger Malinga picked up fast wickets.Quick bowler Mitchell Starc showed batting was not impossible and clipped 22 runs off 28 balls before Xavier Doherty offered a simple catch off Eranga to put an finish to the innings.
Sri Lanka’s run chase formed as a straightforward, but they lost six wickets before they reached their target, meaning 16 wickets had been lost in the day for 149 runs. Had Australia held early chances off Tillakaratne Dilshan & Lahiru Thirimanne, they may have won early the momentum to spark a heavier collapse, but in lieu the visitors limped home in the 20th over, with their last recognised batting pair at the crease.
A fearsome spell of inswing bowling from Nuwan Kulasekara was the definitive performance in a strange third ODI at the Gabba, where both captains would have batted first, but 100 may have been a winning total. Kulasekara took a career-best five for 22 as they damned Australia to 74 all out, with the aid of Lasith Malinga, who tore down the tail.Having rested several key players for the first matches, Australia returned to near-full strength at Brisbane, with Michael Clarke, David Warner & Matthew Wade arriving to bolster the batting, but none of them could make it to double figures. In fact, only the last pair of Mitchell Starc & Xavier Doherty did.
