Cricket news - Live Cricket Score: Australia v Sri Lanka, Warm-up match, World Cup 2019
And another one! A wicket off a full toss for Adam Zampa! Kusal Mends goes for a slog sweep from outside off and hits it flat to Lyon at deep midwicket. Sri Lanka are four-down now. Here's another Mendis - Jeevan Mendis.
Bowled! Here's wicket no. 3 for Australia. Thirimanne is bowled through the gate by Lyon. Departs soon after his fifty. Angelo Mathews at No. 5.
FIFTY: Thirimanne brings up his half-century with a boundary off the last ball of the 23rd over and then brings up the hundred for SL with a single two balls later.
WICKET: Maxwell strikes one ball after the break and it's Perera who's trapped lbw. Plumb. Replays confirm it's crashing into his legstump. No review wasted then.
Drinks break: SL have recovered fairly well after the loss of the first wicket. 71/1 after 16 overs and it's time for drinks.
WICKET: Kane Richardson strikes, and takes out Karunaratne. Banged it short and it climbed on to the batsman. Karunaratne checks his pull and there's a sharp sound as the ball passes the bat. Australia think they have him and go for a review because the on-field umpire is unmoved. Nigel Llong is asked to change his decision. First wicket falls for Sri Lanka, on 44. Here's Kusal Perera at No. 3.
Starc is off the attack, and Cummins switches ends.
Karunaratne has taken his time to warm up and is finally among the runs. There was a run out chance - and replays confirmed it would have been close - but Carey's gloves disturbed the bails even before the ball reached him. So, that's that. Karunaratne survives.
Australia have been buoyed in recent times - first, they beat India and Pakistan in bilateral series. They then welcomed the return of David Warner and Steve Smith and finally handed England a soul-searching defeat in the first warm-up game. As they get ready to apply the finishing touches to their 2019 World Cup preparations, today is another opportunity to sharpen those edges.
While Australia are riding high on a crest of momentum, it's exactly the opposite in the case of Sri Lanka. They have managed to secure just one win in 2019 and that came against Scotland. A new captain, a new-look team and they have one last chance to settle down ahead of the mega tournament.
TOSS - Sri Lanka won the toss and decided to bat first. They are playing 13 with Lasith Malinga Isuru Udana rested. Australia have opted to rest David Warner, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Jason Behrendorff
