Australia vs Sri Lanka 6th ODI highlights : CB Series

Srilanka 9 runs victory over Australia end the hope of India to play final of the,Common wealth Bank series. Electing to bat, Sri Lanka put up a modest 238 runs and then bowled out the hosts for 229 to win with five balls to spare.A match with lots of ups and downs.

Indain players were watching the match more than any other spectator.Are they staying for the final or go and pack their things.

A hat-trick from Daniel Christian, a four-wicket comeback from James Pattinson, a captain’s half-century from Shane Watson or a remarkable, late, fighting fifty from David Hussey could prevent Sri Lanka from winning the last qualifying match at the MCG.

Lasith Malinga finished with four for 49 as skipper Mahela Jayawardene chopped and changed his eight bowlers to defend Sri Lanka’s below-par total.

“We lifted our game,” Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene said. “I’m sure the crowd will follow us now.'

"A brilliant game of cricket,” Watson said. “You never knew who was going to win."
