Live Updates of Today Match between Sri Lanka vs Australia from The Oval, London. Check commentary and full scoreboard of the match.
39.6 overs (0 Run) OUT! Udana is out of here! A terrific catch by Finch. Length and around off, this one bounces a touch more and it is also the slower one. Udana looks to flat-bat it but mistimes it high up in the air behind mid off. Finch runs backwards and takes a very good catch. Not easy when you have to run like that and also, the sun might have just been in his eyes. Two wickets away now Australia from winning this one.
39.5 overs (2 Runs) Well fielded! Length and outside off, Udana goes after it away from his body. The ball goes off the outside edge and down towards third man. JB runs to his right, dives and saves two.
39.5 overs (1 Run) Down the leg side, IU looks to flick but misses. Wided.
39.4 overs (0 Run) On a length and around off, Udana strokes it to covers.
39.3 overs (0 Run) Good short one and Udana ducks under it.
39.2 overs (0 Run) Back of a length on off, it is kept out.
39.1 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Up and over! Shorter and outside off, Udana slashes hard, it flies over point and the ball races to the boundary. Consecutive boundaries.
38.6 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Fine shot! Starc delivers it on a length around off, de Silva presents a straight bat and times his shot beautifully. Warner tries his best to stop it with a dive at mid off but fails.
38.5 overs (0 Run) Back of a length ball on middle, defended back from the crease.
38.4 overs (1 Run) Starc switches to 'round the wicket and spears in a full ball on off, Udana tries keeping it out but gets an outside edge behind. Richardson makes a diving stop at third man and saves three for his side.
38.3 overs (1 Run) Eyes a yorker but ends up serving a reverse swinging full toss on off, Dhananjaya plays it with an open-faced bat square of the wicket on the off side for one.
38.2 overs (1 Run) No hat-trick! It's full and outside off, Udana pushes it through covers for a run.
38.1 overs (0 Run) OUT! Another one bites the dust! Starc with the older ball is a different beast! He steams in and slants across a good length delivery outside off at 140 kph. Mendis stays back to throw his bat at it but only manages a thin outside edge behind. Alex Carey makes no mistake and Starc hunts down his fourth victim. He's on a hat-trick now. Can he get it and the fifer?
37.6 overs (1 Run) Shortish and on middle, this is pulled towards deep backward square leg for one.
37.5 overs (1 Run) Another length and outside off, de Silva opens the face and hits it down to third man for one.
37.4 overs (0 Run) Good length again on off, de Silva guides it to point.
37.3 overs (2 Runs) On the pads, this is worked through mid-wicket and the batters take two.
37.2 overs (0 Run) Back of a length on off, it is kept out.
37.1 overs (1 Run) On the pads, this is worked through square leg for one.
36.6 overs (0 Run) OUT! Six, single and out! Perera does not last for long and he probably takes Sri Lanka's hopes of chasing this down along with him. Not clever, you can't keep going after Starc and expect to get away every time. Mitchell dishes out a full one on middle, Perera once again looks to find the boundary. He tries to go over mid on but does not get under the delivery. He ends up hitting it too flat and Warner takes a tumbling catch. An over with two wickets in it comes to an end. Probably the over which turns the tide completely into Australia's favour. 118 needed off 78 balls.
36.5 overs (1 Run) On the off pole, Mendis looks to defend but it goes off the inner half on the leg side. A run taken.
36.4 overs (1 Run) Full now and on middle, this is whipped through square leg for one.
36.3 overs (6 Runs) SIX! That is some way to get off the mark! WOW! Starc goes short and Thisara is up for the challenge. He pulls it high and handsome, over the backward square leg fence.
36.2 overs (0 Run) OUT! KABOOM! Mitchell Starc knocks Siriwardana over. His second of the night and all of a sudden, Sri Lanka have half their side back in the hut. This is slightly fuller and it is at 143 KPH. Tails back in. Too good for MS. He looks to flick but gets an inside edge, the ball hits the pads and crashes into the stumps. Also, this is the 11th wicket for Starc in this World Cup. He is now the leading wicket-taker.
36.1 overs (0 Run) On the stumps, kept out.
36.1 overs (1 Run) Down the leg side, it has been wided.
35.6 overs (1 Run) Uppish but wide! Good length on off, Siriwardana looks to drive but then looks to bail out of the shot. Too late, the ball hits the bat and goes uppishly wide of cover for one.
35.5 overs (2 Runs) Shorter in length and on middle, Siriwardana pulls it through mid-wicket and takes two.
35.4 overs (0 Run) OUT! Soft, soft dismissal and Mathews is furious with himself as he walks back. He can't believe he has got out to that delivery. Remember how Cummins got Imam-ul-Haq in Australia's last game? This is similar. Short and down the leg side. Mathews looks to pull but it kisses the gloves and goes straight into the mitts of Carey who takes it and appeals. The umpire has his finger up. Mathews' poor form continues. Sri Lanka slip further. 130 more needed.
35.3 overs (0 Run) Another length ball and Mathews keeps it out.
35.2 overs (1 Run) On the shorter side again and Mendis works it through square leg for one.
35.1 overs (0 Run) Back of a length on off, kept out.
