Cricinfo: VB Series 2005-06

1st Final: Australia v Sri Lanka at Adelaide, 10 Feb 2006[ Scorecard ]

Sri Lanka Innings

  • 3.3 Clark to Jayasuriya, SIX, max! going, going, gone! good length delivery, hint of in swing, Jayasuriya quickly gets into a good position and clips it away high and handsome over the square leg fence, that's a top shot

  • 39.6 Hogg to Sangakkara, SIX, tossed up outside the off stump, Sangakkara takes out the mighty sweep and connects well, ball sails over the midwicket fence, fantastic shot

  • 44.3 Symonds to Dilshan, SIX, tossed up and turning in, Dilshan swings across, going down on one knee as he played the shot - ball takes the middle of the ball and sails into the stands over deep midwicket, welcome runs for Lanka

  • 47.2 Symonds to Kapugedera, SIX, tossed up outside the off stump and that's pounded straight into the sight screen - good clean hit

  • 47.5 Symonds to Kapugedera, SIX, take that! fraction short, Kapugedera rocks back and pulls it away well over the fielder placed right in front of the ropes at midwicket, second six of the over and it's turning out to be a good one for Sri Lanka

  • 48.5 Lee to Dilshan, SIX, short of a good length delivery on the stumps, Dilshan sways back and swings across powerfully and the ball sails into the Chappell stand - that is one might six

  • 49.1 Bracken to Kapugedera, (noball) SIX, up, up and awayyyyyyyy! waist high fulltoss and Kapugedera dismisses over the midwicket fence, Bracken under pressure here

Australia Innings

  • 6.3 Vaas to Gilchrist, SIX, good length delivery outside the off stump, Gilchrist comes down the track and flays it away over the cover fence, looked like a mistimed shot but got enough bat on it to just clear the fence

  • 17.1 Kulasekara to Symonds, SIX, good length delivery outside the off stump and that's thumped over the long-on fence - shot of the day so far!
