Commentary (Sri Lanka innings)

That's all from us for the day, do join us on 23rd for the last ODI of the series at Hobart. Till then goodbye!

Sri Lanka will be upset as they were the favourites having restricted the hosts for 222, with some good bowling and fielding efforts. They also batted for 3.2 overs and made 14 runs without losing any wickets. Sad though for them, but they now can not lose the series. The only clash in the series left will be played at Hobart on 23rd January, if Australia win the match they will only be able to level the series 2-2.

Michael Clarke says they wanted to play and were ready for the game but it was the umpires' call and they decided against it. He added that they will try and level the series with a win at Hobart.

The umpires take an unexpected decision and call off the game! Rain has stopped since last 45 minutes but the outfield is still very wet, which is the reason the umpires decided so. We won't get any result and the fans along with the players look very disappointed, may be not the Australians as they still have a chance to level the series.

The umpires have taken an inspection and will take another after ten minutes or so. The groundstaff have been given some time to dry the ground as much as possible. The pitch looks to be totally dry, thanks to the covering and should pose much of a threat to the batsmen.

GOOD NEWS! The rain has stopped and the covers are slowly coming off. A single cover is still on the field and the umpires will take a decision on resumption very shortly, depending on the wetness of the outfield. Ian Healy and Mark Taylor reckon that it could be a game of 35 overs and Healy feels that this game now certainly plays straight into Sri Lanka's hands. Stay tuned for updates...

The play is stopped for the moment as rains pour in heavily. Covers are out on the ground to cover the pitch.

3.2 M Starc to M J'dena, Good length delivery again, the batsman lets that off the front foot towards the covers. 14/0

3.1 M Starc to M J'dena, Good length delivery outside off, Jayawardena shoulders his arms to that one. 14/0

It's raining at the ground but the game is still on. The umpires are still deciding whether to call it off or continue the play. The batsmen, especially Jayawardena looks concerned about batting with such pouring, Clarke on the other hand is still on the field and wants the game to carry on.

Commentary (Australia innings)

Australia end their innings at 222/9. Good batting performance in the end from Starc(52*) who held on the innings with crucial partnerships supported by McKay and Doherty. It was another poor show from the Aussie top order batsmen except for a good knock from Warner(60) who was adjudged LBW off an inside edge. Clarke, Wade and Bailey got starts but couldn't stick on the crease. Sri Lankans bowled with some good effort in the field. Kulasekara picked up three wickets whereas Herath, Malinga and Perera picked up two each. It's a good score not a huge one, very much defendable specially with likes of Starc, Johnson and McKay. Do join us for the chase after a short while.

That's all from us for the day, do join us on 23rd for the last ODI of the series at Hobart. Till then goodbye!

Sri Lanka will be upset as they were the favourites having restricted the hosts for 222, with some good bowling and fielding efforts. They also batted for 3.2 overs and made 14 runs without losing any wickets. Sad though for them, but they now can not lose the series. The only clash in the series left will be played at Hobart on 23rd January, if Australia win the match they will only be able to level the series 2-2.

Michael Clarke says they wanted to play and were ready for the game but it was the umpires' call and they decided against it. He added that they will try and level the series with a win at Hobart.

The umpires take an unexpected decision and call off the game! Rain has stopped since last 45 minutes but the outfield is still very wet, which is the reason the umpires decided so. We won't get any result and the fans along with the players look very disappointed, may be not the Australians as they still have a chance to level the series.

The umpires have taken an inspection and will take another after ten minutes or so. The groundstaff have been given some time to dry the ground as much as possible. The pitch looks to be totally dry, thanks to the covering and should pose much of a threat to the batsmen.

GOOD NEWS! The rain has stopped and the covers are slowly coming off. A single cover is still on the field and the umpires will take a decision on resumption very shortly, depending on the wetness of the outfield. Ian Healy and Mark Taylor reckon that it could be a game of 35 overs and Healy feels that this game now certainly plays straight into Sri Lanka's hands. Stay tuned for updates...

The play is stopped for the moment as rains pour in heavily. Covers are out on the ground to cover the pitch.

The news from the centre is that Australia won the toss and elected to bat. The Aussies will play with an unchanged side whereas for the Lankans, Dinesh Chandimal and Rangana Herath will come in to replace Shaminda Eranga and Upul Tharanga.

Hello and a warm welcome to all our viewers, it's the fourth ODI of the series with the Lankans leading it 2-1. SCG will host its 141st ODI and it all promises to be a cracker as Aussies will need to win this one to stay in the series. Clarke's troop needs to recover from the humiliating loss at Brisbane and they will do anything to do so.

It's raining at the ground but the game is still on. The umpires are still deciding whether to call it off or continue the play. The batsmen, especially Jayawardena looks concerned about batting with such pouring, Clarke on the other hand is still on the field and wants the game to carry on.
