Sri Lanka beat Australia by 4 runs
That's a wrap to this close game. Sri Lanka have an unassailable 3-1 lead in the series now and that makes the final ODI a dead rubber. An inconsequential game after so long as this series is not a part of the 2020-23 ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League. Australia though will look to win the last game and take some momentum into the Test series. Do join us on Friday, 24th June 2022, for all the action, starting at 2.30 pm IST (9 am GMT). You can join us in advance for the build-up. Until then, it's goodbye and cheers!
Dasun Shanaka, the victorious captain of Sri Lanka, starts by talking about the last over and feels it was the right idea for him to bowl. Adds that he was very confident about the total they put on the board. Calls that it's unfortunate that they didn't do well at the death. States that this win is much-needed for the country and will be celebrated by all the Sri Lankans.
Aaron Finch, the captain of Australia, says that the series has gone the same way the previous few games have. Mentions that any time they looked like getting a big partnership, they lost a wicket. Tells that they know how hard it is to start in these conditions against good spin. Finch feels that the target was very gettable and they got very close. Mentions that in a couple of chases, they had the game in hand, but lost wickets at the wrong time. States that had someone batted a little longer with Warner, the result could have been different.
Charith Asalanka (110) is chosen for the Player of the Match award. Says that it was a strong challenge and credits Dhananjaya de Silva for his knock that allowed Charith to settle down. Shares that the pitch was similar to the last game but it spun more later in the game. Mentions that the plan was to bat till the 40th over and then go for the big hits, and they were targeting 250 runs.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
Earlier in the afternoon, Australia opted to bowl and picked three wickets in Powerplay 1. But they lost the plot in the middle overs and the knocks from Dhananjaya de Silva and Charith Asalanka stole the momentum. The Aussies did manage to come back at the death and bundle the Lankans out in 49 overs for a below-par total but their batting imploded and they failed to keep the series alive.
The chase for Australia started on the wrong note with Aaron Finch falling very early. David Warner though got his head down and concentrated on building partnerships. With Mitchell Marsh, Marnus Labuschagne, Alex Carey and Travis Head, Warner kept on stitching stands and maintained a nice tempo in the chase. Australia looked like firm favourites at one stage but Sri Lanka made a resounding comeback by dismissing Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell and David Warner in the space of 9 balls to throw this match wide open. Pat Cummins and Cameron Green tried to wrestle some control back through their stand, as the asking rate was not very demanding, but Sri Lanka struck back to remove them and registered a close win.
It was the David Warner show for Australia in the chase. The Australians are criticised for being clueless against the spinners but on a pitch conducive for spin bowling and against an army of spin bowlers, the Aussies applied themselves, showed fine skills and temperament, and navigated through the challenging period with aplomb. Warner mixed caution with aggression, dealt with the spinners with excellent footwork, played and missed many times, but stayed focused to do the job. His presence never allowed the required rate to creep up, and Sri Lanka spent most of the time on the back foot. But just when it looked like Australia will overcome the trial by spin, things went awry for them.
Well tried, Matthew Kuhnemann! He didn't throw in the towel and gave a real scare to Sri Lanka. This match appeared done once the final over started but Kuhnemann fetched a couple of boundaries to make things interesting. Eventually, the Lankan skipper held his nerve and the hosts won the series, their first bilateral ODI series win against Australia since 2010, with a game to go.

Dasun Shanaka To Matthew Kuhnemann OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Sri Lanka win the match by 4 runs and clinch the series with one game to go. Finally, Dasun Shanaka takes the pace off the ball and lands it around middle and off, Matthew Kuhnemann steps back to make room and lofts it unconvincingly to extra cover. Charith Asalanka, the centurion of this match, gets under it and fittingly ends the game. The Lankan players are ecstatic.
There is a mini-conference. Dasun Shanaka is surrounded by the other senior players. Wanindu Hasaranga perhaps is asking him to stay calm.

The crowd roars and this is the final nail in the Australian coffin. That was the plan from Lasith Malinga, to bowl the yorker and Chamika lands one to get rid of Australia's last hope.

Appeal for an lbw! This one is around leg, turning down, Matthew Kuhnemann attempts to work it on the leg side from the back foot but misses.

Review! Dasun Shanaka opts for the review for lbw. The original decision is not out. The UltraEdge confirms that it is pad first. The Ball Tracking shows that the ball is pitching outside leg. Matthew Kuhnemann survives and Sri Lanka lose a review here.

Dhananjaya de Silva To David Warner OUT!
OUT! STUMPED! Warner is gone on 99 and Sri Lanka are right on top! They have made a resounding comeback in this match. Dhananjaya flights this one around off, turning away, Warner gets forward with a big stretch and tries to drive but is beaten by the away turn. Dickwella is swift in taking the bails off and starts to celebrate. The square leg umpire refers upstairs. Nothing on the UltraEdge and the side-on angle confirms that Warner is outside the crease. Warner has already walked. Body blow to Australia. 67 needed off 77 balls with three wickets left.
Is that stumped? The umpire takes it upstairs to confirm. The UltraEdge shows no bat is involved. The side-on angle shows the stumps are broken when David Warner's back leg is in the air. He has to depart on 99. Australia now in a spot of bother.

Maxwell attempts to flick but misses. He gets hit above the knee on the front leg and they appeal. The finger stays down and Maheesh Theekshana is very confident. Dasun Shanaka obliges and goes for the referral. The UltraEdge detects nothing and the Ball Tracking shows that it's hitting the stumps. Brilliant from the bowler as the keeper showed very little interest in that review. 69 needed off 82 balls.

Dhananjaya de Silva To Travis Head OUT!
OUT! SOUND OF TIMBER! And that brings the crowd back to life. Dhananjaya de Silva benefits from his natural variation. This one lands on a fuller length around off and skids on with the angle. Travis Head gets forward to play at it but leaves a big gap between his bat and pad. It sneaks through and disturbs the stumps. The 58-run stand is broken and Australia need 70 off 85 balls.

Dasun Shanaka To David Warner
Full length, outside off. David Warner stays back and crunches it towards covers. Not in the gap though.
Drinks break. Australia continue to have their noses in front in this chase. 90 needed off 102 balls and the asking rate has never been a problem for the Aussies so far. Sri Lanka have tried everything but with little success. It won't be wrong to say that David Warner stands between them and an unassailable lead in the series. Can they remove the southpaw and make this match interesting? Here comes Dasun Shanaka to try and do that...

CAREY IS SAFE! Loopy delivery, landing full around off and turning away. Alex Carey lunges to defend but it beats the outside edge. Dickwella is quick to dislodge the bails and appeals for stumping, looking at square leg. He then finds that the umpire is at point. It's referred upstairs. First, the third umpire checks for the outside edge, there is nothing on the UltraEdge. The side-on angle shows that Carey's back leg is behind the line and he can continue to fight.
Is that stumped? The umpire takes it upstairs to confirm. The UltraEdge shows no spike as the ball passes the blade. The replays later confirm that Alex Carey has his back foot inside the crease and the final decision is NOT OUT.

Jeffrey Vandersay To Marnus Labuschagne OUT!
OUT! LBW! Jeffrey Vandersay appeals and up goes the finger. Marnus Labuschagne thinks he has been hit high on his pads and takes the review after having a word with his partner. It is tossed up, around middle and turns away just a touch. Marnus Labuschagne is caught inside his crease, he misses his flick and the ball brushes his pads. The umpire raises the finger but Marnus Labuschagne thinks otherwise. There is no bat involved. The Ball Tracking shows three reds and Marnus Labuschagne trudges back to the pavilion. A much-needed breakthrough for Sri Lanka. Jeffrey Vandersay picks up his first wicket.
Huge shout for an lbw against Marnus Labuschagne and the finger has gone up. Marnus consults with his partner and then takes the DRS. Looks out to the naked eye. If not hitting the wickets, this at least will be clipping the stumps. It's HITTING THE STUMPS, confirms the Ball Tracking. Marnus Labuschagne departs.

Drinks break. Australia have fared decently against the trial by spin so far. David Warner has led the batting with his positive approach which is a mix of caution and aggression. They are on track but cannot afford to relax on this pitch that's offering plenty of spin and bounce. The Lankans have an army of spinners and all they need is to stay patient and keep things tidy. The middle phase is going to be crucial. 168 needed off 198 balls. Here comes Jeffrey Vandersay...
