Earlier, Australia were bowled out for 158 and set a target 159 in 41 overs. David Hussey scored 58 for Australia while Farveez Maharoof captured two wickets for 18 and Thisara Perera captured two wickets for 29. The match was halted for around an hour due to rain and the overs were reduced to 41. For Sri Lanka, Mahela Jayawardene scored 61 not out and Tillekeratne Dilshan scored 45.
