Sri Lanka scored 238 runs against Australia in the 12th match of the CB Tri-nation series played in Melbourne. 

Australia’s Daniel Christian registered his maiden five-wicket haul (including a hat-trick) in the last league match of the tri-series. Lahiru Thirimanne hit a 59-ball 51 before he was clean bowled by James Pattinson while attempting a cheeky shot over towards fine-leg.

Daniel Christian dismissed Thisara Perera, Sachithra Senanayake and Nuwan Kulasekara to take a hat-trick.

Dinesh Chandimal hit a 84-ball 75 before James Pattinson had him caught by Clint McKay at mid-off. Sangakkara hit three fours in his 64-run knock and put up a 123-run stand with Dinesh Chandimal for the third wicket to lead the Sri Lankan fightback.

Chandimal reached his 7th fifty off 47 balls while Sangakkara reached his 68th half-century off 79 deliveries.

Indian cricketers and millions of their fans would be unified in praying for an Australian victory because if the Aussies beat the Sri Lankans, India will be through to the best-of-three finals.

Michael Clarke misses the match due to a stiff back and Shane Watson, who was magnificent with the ball in the match against India, will captain Australia.

    Where is the experience and common sense of the captain and the former captain. Who gets run oun out in the first few overs of a particularly this do or die crucial match? Why did Senanayake was brought in , he was naturally tensed and nervous and no wonder he was out in the first ball. What are we upto, I am really sad.

    Only good bowling and fielding can save Sri Lanka, if not Kangaroo's will win the match .
