Aussies are batting 4/0 in the first over.

Can’t see Sri Lanka getting anything out of this, certain players out of form. Although I would love to be surprised.
Malinga is not the bowler he was and Sri Lanka seem to be a shadow of their former self.
Not sure that putting Aus in was a good idea and they are now 39 after just 7.3 overs and could get a very big total.
Aussies 63/0 after 12 overs flying along. Great start from Warner and Finch. Can see them posting a big total here.

Sri Lanka aren’t offering much to be honest. Long day for them.
Interesting to see how Australia are leaving out Zampa and Lyon and just laying Maxwell asca spinner.
Engkand seem to be choosing now to leave out Moeen but with Rachid, have much better balance?
And then Afghanistan who we have next will have 3 spinners.
Aus 119-2 after 26 overs Kahajwa went in the 23rd over for 10

Sandpaper Smith batting now
Aus 203-2 - 14 overs left

Finch has got his 100 ....off 97 balls

Aussies looking like they'll get 300+
Myself included - Say what you like about Steve Smith for his leadership in the South African series, he sure knows how to bat and occupy the crease. Kholi, Smith and Root top three batsmen in the world and it’s showing. Honourable mention for Shakib Al Hasan too.
237-2 after 40 overs

Finch broken the ball with an almight whack!
Finch gone , Smith gone the following over

Aus 280-4 6 overs left

should get well over 300
22 runs off the 45th over o_O

350 on the cards for Aus?
Marsh gone for 3

Aus 310-5 ... 3 overs left of their innings

wickets starting to fall quickly ...too little too late from Sri Lanka ?

320-7 with 1 and an a half overs left
Sri Lanka need 335 to win then

Aus 334-7 for their 50 overs innings
Big ask for Sri Lanka. If they get anywhere near the target they will of done well. Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis will need to score the bulk of the runs here.
