M Starc to Lakmal, FOUR! Short outside off, Lakmal looks to cut but gets an outside edge and it flies over second slip where Labuschagne jumps but it goes over him. It goes towards third man for a boundary.

Drinks break. Could possibly be the last drinks break of the game. Australia steam rolling the Lankans here. Two away if Kumara comes to bat, one if he does not. The main aim for the visitors would be to first at least make the hosts bat again. Can they?

Pat Cummins to D Perera, OUT! If the last catch was a stunner, this is even more brilliant. Superman stuff from Patterson at gully. A length ball on off, extra bounce and catches the shoulder of the bat and flies to the right of gully. Surely was looking like it was going away from the fielder but Kurtis leaps to his right and holds on for a one-handed blinder. Eight down now! Sri Lanka might not even make Australia bat again here it looks like. Cummins picks up his sixth one of the innings and the tenth of his game.

M Starc to Lakmal, Oooh! Almost. A length ball coming into the batsman once more, missed by Lakmal as he gets hit on the pads and the ball lobs to short leg. No bat on it and the cherry seems to be going down leg once more.
43.5
0
M Starc to Lakmal, Beaten! Yet again outside off and beaten by sheer pace as Suranga does not bring his bat down in time.
43.4
0
M Starc to Lakmal, Full and spearing on the pads, Lakmal misses the ball and gets hit on the pad. It was going down the leg side so the appeal is turned down by the umpire.

M Starc to Perera, Short of a length at the hips, looks like a set plan with a leg gully in place. Dilruwan misses his glance and the ball goes off the thigh pad and lobs fine on the leg side for a leg bye.
