    Aust v SL - Bellerive

    A Farewell lunch, for a colleague, saw me a little late on the way to the ground. Little traffic, so got my wanted parking spot. No long queues at the gates, so got in easily - Members hand scanner, rudimentary bag search - got to my usual viewing spot and only missed the first ball - a dot ball. Clarke had won the toss, elected to bat - Watson was 12th man (another rest?), Clarke & Harris in for dropped Punter & Starc. Sri Lanka were unchanged. Bright blue sky, with a few clouds - brilliant sunshine. Not as large a crowd as expected - no Punter, no come?

    Malinga (but scoreboard showing Senanyake!) to Wade - just 1. ABC's Maxwell starte with the 'Antarctic End' quip. Kulasekera to Wade , sq cut, then (5) lifted to midoff - 1/5, Forrest in at number 3, he late cut thru Malinga on the boundary - 8 off over. Kula - just 1. Malinga - a bouncer wide, a legside wide - 9 off over. Kula - just 2. Maharoof replace Malinga (Southern End - for 7th over), Warner (7) snicked to keeper - 2/27 - just 1 off over.

Drinks 2/72 (Forrest 37, Clarke 20, 18 overs) - and I forgot to pack my portable radio - how do you know the score? (when the electronic scoreboard goes down).
    Went to the Nine coverage on the replay screen - has total & batsmens scores. Scoreboard back - how long before it fails again? Beach ball on the Hill. 50 partnership (80 b), Forrest pulled Mathews sq - 7 off over. Powerplay 2 (5 overs): 0/18. Maharoof - just 1. Perera on for Maha (Souhern) - just 3.

Umpire Bowden go attention to his foot - sock off.

Powerplay 3 (5 overs): 0/43. 150 p'ship (176 b), end of Maharoof spell (1/40). Herath on for Malinga (Members). Mathews on at Southern End, Clarke (72) hit to deep midwkt - 3/181 - just 2 off over. Perera on for Herath (Members), Forrest offdrove, Mike Hussey pulled sq onto Hill, single for Forrest's maiden 100 (136 b 9 4s 2 6s) - 14 off over.

Kula for last over, mis-fielding gave 2 on last ball, his spell (1/55). Aussies 6/280 (D.Hussey 40, Lee 20). Too many to chase down?

Batting Powerplay (5 overs): 1/34. Doherty replaced Christian (Southern) - just 1. Hifly replaced Lee (Members) - double Tassie attack! Doherty end of spell (1/35). Chandi onhit Hilfy - 8 off over.

Perera flicked Harris behind sq - 8 off over. 23 needed off 3 overs, Lee on at Members End - 6 off. Can the Sri Lankan young guns handle the pressure? 17 off 2 overs, Christian replaced Harris (Southern), Mathews (24) off hit to boundary fielder - 7/267, Perera flicked sq (in front of me), then pulled thru midwkt into Spencer Stand - 13 off over, Christian 3/53 from 8).

    Police were actually directing vehicles a particular way when reaching Clarence St, so my car location and exit route got me home within 30 mins - plenty of time for some 'beauty' sleep, for the early morning start.

      Tendulkar: run out for 14, Gambhir called a quick single, Lee when to field the ball towards point, then stopped, Tendulkar had to run aroundhim, Warner threw the stumps down side-on. Time since last ton: 11 months, 14 days.

        Gimc Tas, why havn't you updated India's win over SL scored 321runs within 37th over, yet ?

        Seems Australia, can choose whether they want to play SL or India in the CB Series finals, depending on how Australia play vs SL, on 2nd March.

          Ind v SL - Bellerive

          Little traffic. Overcast, with some darkish clouds - but not threatening. No queues, could have parked much closer. A Sheffield Shield size crowd - can Tassie take the points? India won toss and elected to field - so they know have many runs, to chase in 40 overs, for the bonus pt. Sri Lanka - no changes. India - Zaheer Khan for Irfan Pathan (still feeling the effects of the collision?). Saveloy & Coke: $7.

          Zaheer to Jayawardene, first ball wide. Praveen Kumar to Jayaw (Members) - just 1. Got myself on camera - the only one with a 'bright' fashion at the time? Jayaw straight drove Zaheer. Dilshan cover drove Praveen. Jayaw onhit Zaheer for 6 - 7 off over. Dilshan tried to ramp Praveen - off arm guard to keeper? Steady scoring, but Jayaw not hogging the strike this game. Dilshan pulled Praveen thru midwkt, Praveen had his boot fixed - unofficial drinks break. Powerplay 1 (10 overs): 0/41. Yadav replaced Zaheer (Southern End) - 7 off over. Jadeja replaced Praveen (Members), Jayaw (22) snicked to Sehwag at slip (great reflex catch!) - 1/49 - just 1 off over. 50 up in 13th over. Yadav - just 1. Ashwin on for one over Jadeja (Members). Dilshan pulled Yadav behind sq - 8 off over. Usual Bowling Powerplay (16th over onwards). Sangakkara pulled Yadav sq - 6 off over. Drinks 1/72 (Dilshan 36, Sangakkara 12, 17 overs). Sri Lankans apparently stayed in their hotel over the weekend - as 'too hot'!
          Jadeja replaced Yadav (Southern) - double spin attack. Bowling Powerplay (5 overs): 0/22. Dilshan danced to Jadeja and onhit, Sanga sq cut - 10 off over. Dilshan late cut Ashwin for 4 and his 50 (68 b 5 4s), 100 in 22nd over - 6 off over. Back to steady scoring. Jadeja - just 1. Dilshan late cut jadeja - 8 off over. Sehwag replaced Ashwin (Members). Sunshine again, with a light breeze. Sanga hit Sehwag straight for 6 - just over Praveen's head (was he too far in?) - hit rope on full - 10 off over. Jadeja - just 2. Sanga straight drove Sehwag for 4 and his 50 (55 b 3 4s 1 6s), Sanga back cut, 100 partnership (119 b), 150 in 32nd over - 11 off over. Last 10 overs (of spin) have taken 28 mins! Batting Powerplay taken early (33rd over onwards), Zaheer replaced Jadeja (Southern), Dilshan leg glanced - 10 off over. Ashwain replaced Sehwag (Members) - 7 off over. Yadav replaced one over Zaheer, lost his boot on delivery, Sanga changed bats - 5 vested players on ground - waiting, waiting ... Sanga onhit Ashwin - 7 off over. Sanga pulled Yadav sq to underside of Clarence Cricket Club (nearly hit me!) - umpires looking at ball - no change, Sanga hit by ball as making his ground - no appeal, but limping - 12 off over. Batting Powerplay (5 overs): 0/41. Drinks 1/191 (Dilshan 90, Sangakkara 75, 37 overs).
          Sanga pulled Ashwin thru midwkt, 150 partnership (156 b 94 min) - 8 off over, spell 0/52. Praveen replaced Yadav (Southern), 200 up in 39th over - 11 off over. Yadav on at Members, Sanga hit high to longoff - Tendulkar didn't attack it, Dlshan hit on pads on 99 - just a leg bye! Jadeja replaced Praveen (Southern), Dilshan took a single for his 100 (132 b 8 4s), Sanga pulled sq (just in front of me), then onhit - 11 off over, another bat change. Praveen replaced Yadav (Members), Dilshan pulled fine - 10 off over. Zaheer replaced Jadeja (Southern), Sanga snicked high over slips for 2 and his 100 (84 b 7 4s 2 6s), Dilshan leg glanced - 9 off over. Sanga pulled Praveen thru midwkt for 4 & 200 partnership (187 b 169 min) - highest 2nd wkt partnership for Sri Lanka, then Sanga (105) bowled - 2/249, Perera in as pinch hitter, 250 in 44th over - 8 off over. Dilshan pulled Zaheer sq onto Hill - 13 off over. Dilshan offdrove Praveen, one swung wide past Dhoni for 4 wides, Perera (3) tried a quick 2 - run out (3rd umpireummed and arrhed) - 3/279, Mathews in to pinch hit as well - 17 off over. Dilshan got his bat attended to. Yadav replaced Zaheer (Southern), Dlshan hoicked over midwkt onto Hill, Mathews off drove (just wide of midoff) - 14 off over. Part-time offie Raina replaced Praveen(Members) - 300 up in 48th over - 7 off over. Zaheer on for Yadav, Dilshan 150 (159 b 11 4s 2 6s), Mathews (14) offhit to deep midoff - 4/309 - only 6 off over! Dilshan pulled Raina high to midwkt - Kohli couldn't get there, then pulled sq into fenceto equal his highest ODI score, then missed the last ball (no score) - 10 off over. Sri Lanka 4/320 (Dilshan 160, Chandimal 2. India need 8 an over for a bonus pt! Surely Sri Lanka have too many runs? Pie & Coke: $8.

          Do we really want Tendulkar to score his 100th International ton in front of this small (but slightly growing) crowd? One of the light towers didn't come on! (Can we play a game with 3 out of 4 light towers?) The electronic scoreboard was flashing strangely, then went black. The old replay screen was also off. Sun peaked thru to assist with the light. Apparently a power failure in the southern part of the ground (but it was the NorthEast tower that was out, and the SouthEast tower was on). Ian Chappell was reportedly stuck in the lift in the Southern Stand. Is the GEM coverage (digital Nine channel) off as well?

          Malinga to Sehwag - 5 off over? (difficult to be sure with no scoreboard!). Isn't technology great - when its working! Kulasekera to Sehwag, who straight hit, Sangakkara came up to the stumps, Tendulkar sq drove - 9 off over. Scoreboard back on. Sehwag pulled Malinga thru midwkt - 8 off over. Tendulkar sq drove Kula thru the pt fielder, Sehwag sq drove - 11 off over. Tendulkar offdrove Malinga, Sehwag pulled thru midwkt, then pulled sq onto Hill - 15 off over. 50 up in 6th over, Kula - just 2. Maharoof on for Malinga (Southern), Sehwag onhit, then (30) pulled to midon - 1/54, Tendulkar cover hit - 13 off over. Gambhir sq drove Kula, then on hit - 12 off over. Fourth light tower finally coming on (in 8th over) - but not all the lights? Gambhir steered Maharoof thru slips - 7 off over. Malinga replaced Kula (Members), Tendulkar pulled thru wide midon, then (39) hit on pads - 2/86, Gambhir steered between keeper and widish slip, Kohli flicked thru midwkt - 15 off over. Powerplay 1 (10): 2/97. Maharoof - just 1. Perera replaced Malinga (Members), 100 up in 12th over - 6 off over. Maharoof getting a back massage on the boundary (and went off), Mathews replaced him (Southern) - just 3. Perera - just 5. Drinks 2/112 (Gambhir 28, Kohli 13, 14 overs).
          Mathews - just 5. Kohli offhit Perera - 9 off over. Mathews - just 3, but 4 byes from last ball. Kohli coverhit Perera, 50 partnership (48 b) - 9 off over.

Gambhir's 50 (47 b 4 4s), just 4 off Herath. Kohli's 50 (44 b 3 4s 1 6s), leg glanced Kula - 8 off over. 100 partnership (94 b), Herath - 6 off. Mathews replaced Kula (Members), Kohli skidded in on elbow - attended to - 6 off over. Herath - just 3. Bowling Powerplay finally taken (28th over onwards - but too many field restrictions so close together when Batting Powerplay will be taken?), 200 in 28th over, Gambhir (63) wasn't quick enoughgetting back for 2nd - 3/201, Kohli swept off middle wkt - 9 off over. Kula replaced Herath (Southern) - 7 off over. Malinga on for Mathews (Members), Kohli pulled thru midwkt, Raina flicked sq - 11 off over (+ 4 leg byes). Drinks 3/230 (Kohli 75, Raina 10, 30 overs).
          Raina straight drove Kula, Kohli pulled thru the midwkt fielder for 4, ondrove, then sq hit - 18 off over. Perera on for Malinga (Members), 250 in 32nd over, 50 partnership (24 b), Kohli off hit - 9 off over. Bowling Powerplay (5 overs): 1/58. Batting Powerplay taken immediately (33rd over onwards), Malinga on for Kula (Southern), Raina pulled high to sq leg (near me) - just 7 off over. Raina pulled Perera sq onto Hill - 14 off over. More bats for Kohli. Kohli 100 (76 b 10 4s 1 6s), then pulled Malinga sq onto Hill, ondrove, flicked sq, then again & gain - 24 off the over (from the Kohli show), 300 up in 35th over. Mathews replaced Perera (members) - just 8 off! Kohli onhit Malinga, then straight drove - runs achieved in 36.4 overs. India 3/321 (Kohli 133, Raina 40 - 120 partnership), Malinga finishes with 1/96 (from 7.4 overs). Batting Powerplay (4.4 overs): 0/64. Had scored at 8.75 an over. Man of Match: Kohli (I wonder why?). Second highest run chase in Australia. Bellerive's highest ODI aggregrate. 461 runs in 86.4 overs! (makes up for going to bed when South Africa needed 400 to beat Australia in Joburg!). Where has this India been on this tour?

          Crowd: 3 467, but some seem to be hiding. (Have they included the ticket purchasers that didn't show?)
          Tendulkar: quickfire 39, going for the bonus pt, then hit plumb in front by Malinga. Time since last ton: 11 months, 15 days).

          What do Sri Lanka need to do? The 'Rules' have 'changed' - they don't use net run rate. If one side has beaten the other more (India leads 2.5 out of 4 over Sri Lanka) - so Sri Lanka must get points on Friday, i.e. beat Australia, tie, or match rained out (Melbourne is forecast to be cloudy).

              Warner

              Once again we see an Australian player playing for their own milestone, the Forest example still in our collective consciousness

              There also seems to be a myth that Warner is this great fieldsman, however is it only me that has seen him over run balls, misfield, have grandstand pings at stumps that caused overthrows

              Warners 100 has only any significance if Australia wins

              Also for God sake stop the hailing to the almighty, we dont need moronic religion in cricket keep it for church if you must to

                  Kapugedera - replacement player

                  Sri Lanka has three injured allrounders - Farvez Maharoof, Angelo Mathews and Thisara Perera.

                  Sri Lanka have called up Chamara Kapugedera - but will he be replacing one, or all?

                      Warner

                      Is Warner going to thank God for this disgraceful hunk of shite innings, he should be dropped and made to contemplate the meaning of team,
