CWC 2015 LIVE - Australia Overcome Spirited Sri Lanka

#Aus v #SriLanka, #SCG

In a fantastic run chase spearheaded by a record breaking #KumarSangakarra century and cameos from #Dilshan, #Chandimal and #Mathews kept them in that chase for a long time. But the run pressure was too high and they fell short by 64 runs.

For Australia, it was #MitchelStarc once again to their rescue with a lion hearted bowling performance. He was supported well by #JamesFaulkner with his speed changes to keep things tight.

Overall, a tight game for both teams to learn from before they head into the quarterfinals. Looks like SL will take on South Africa in that quarter final. Australia may face Pak or WI or Ireland (i.e 3rd placed team in Pool B)

Aus: 376 for 8
Maxwell - 102, Watson - 67, Clarke - 68, Smith - 72
Malinga and Perera - 2 wickets each

SL: 312 for 9 (Dinesh Chandimal - retired hurt)
Sangakarra - 104, Dilshan - 62, Chandimal - 52*, Mathews - 35
Faulkner - 3 wickets, Starc and Johnson - 2 wickets each

Man of the Match: #GlennMaxwell

CWC 2015 LIVE – Maxwell Blinder Pushes Australia Ahead Vs Sri Lanka

#Aus v #SL, #SCG

Australia seemed to be pulling away with the contest through a superb stand between #MichaelClarke and #StevenSmith. Just when they seemed to really pile it on, Sri Lanka has a double strike.
Clarke, trying to up the ante, was cleaned up by a Malinga #yorker. Timber broken. Smith who looked fluent tried to smash #TillaktratneDilshan out of the ground but skied one to long off. Excellent catch by #ThisaraPerera.

But, strokemakers, #ShaneWatson and #GlennMaxwell, have unleashed mayhem in SL ranks. #LasithMalinga and co have their work cut out.

Australia: 253 for 4, 40 overs

CWC 2015 LIVE - Australia Trample Afghanistan - Score 417

#Australia v #Afghanistan, #WACA, #Perth
4th Mar 2015

Australia have finally got hold off a team to really showcase their batting prowess they possess!

They literally trampled all over Afghanistan to set up a mammoth 417 for 6.
Afghanistan are all but out of this contest half way through the match.

The best they can is put up some resilience and allow some of their batsmen to get a hit in the middle against a world class bowling attack. This experience will do them a lot of good in the remaining games as well for their growth as a cricketing nation.

#DavidWarner smashed a typical belligerent 178 off 133 balls and looked well to score many more before he was out. #SteveSmith provided the anchor with a patient 95 while #GlennMaxwell once again went ballistic for a 39 ball 88.

At no stage did Afghanistan look to threaten the Aussies.
Probably they were just overawed by the oppostion, the WACA setup and #CWC15 stage.

#LIVE Score:
Australia: 417 for 6 in 50 overs
