Commentary (Sri Lanka innings)

That's it from all of us here. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Do join us for the coverage of first T20I between these two teams on January 26th at 1405 IST. Until then, good bye and take care.

Phillip Hughes is named the Man of the Match for his unbeaten crucial innings of 138, while Nuwan Kulasekara is named the Man of the Series for picking up 11 wickets in the series.

But Henriques struck a crucial blow by removing Mendis, and Mathews departed soon. The lower order was finished off by McKay as Australia edged out the visitors by 32 runs. This is Australia's first win over Sri Lanka at this ground.

The Lankans got off to a good start but the inclusion of Doherty changed the complexion of the game as he scalped Jayawardena and Thirimanne in quick succession. Henriques joined the party and removed the dangerous Dilshan. Just when it looked like the Australians were on top, Mathews and Mendis brought Sri Lanka back into the match with a 79-run stand.

A pretty good performance by Australia to hit back hard and level the series. Having being put into bat they were struggling at 37/2, but Hughes played a spectacular unbeaten knock of 138 to power them to a competitive total.

Commentary (Australia innings)

The Lankan bowlers were disciplined at the start but then faltered at the death. It's going to be a tricky chase for the visitors. Join us in a while for their reply.

Hussey then joined Hughes and added crucial 98 runs which laid the foundation for a good total. Hughes paced his innings superbly as he was cautious at the start but then he started taking clever singles and twos before going all out at the death. It was a fantastic century, one which could prove to be match winning.

A pretty good effort from Australia to post a competitive total on the board! It was a fantastic recovery as they were reduced to 37/2 in the first 10 overs and were struggling to score freely. Hughes and Bailey led the resurrection process as they added 60 runs for the 3rd wicket.

49.6 N Kulasekara to M Henriques, Backs away and drives it sweetly but straight to deep cover. Australia end on 247/5! 247/5

49.5 N Kulasekara to P Hughes, Full outside off, Hughes drives it powerfully straight down the ground, some good foot work in the deep by Perera saves the run for his team. Three runs added to the total. 246/5

49.4 N Kulasekara to P Hughes, FOUR! Bludgeoned! Length delivery outside off, Hughes heaves it powerfully over mid-wicket for a boundary. 243/5

49.3 N Kulasekara to P Hughes, Chips down the track, Kulasekara delivers it a tad full outside off, Hughes looks to slice but ends up chopping it back tot he bowler. He looks for a run but is sent back in time as Kulasekara misses his shy at the striker's end. 239/5

49.2 N Kulasekara to M Henriques, Drills a full delivery on off to long off, there is a slight fumble but the fielder recovers well and restricts the batsmen to just a single. 239/5

49.1 N Kulasekara to M Henriques, Full outside off, Henriques drives it wide of mid off for a couple. 238/5

That's it from all of us here. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Do join us for the coverage of first T20I between these two teams on January 26th at 1405 IST. Until then, good bye and take care.

Phillip Hughes is named the Man of the Match for his unbeaten crucial innings of 138, while Nuwan Kulasekara is named the Man of the Series for picking up 11 wickets in the series.

But Henriques struck a crucial blow by removing Mendis, and Mathews departed soon. The lower order was finished off by McKay as Australia edged out the visitors by 32 runs. This is Australia's first win over Sri Lanka at this ground.

The Lankans got off to a good start but the inclusion of Doherty changed the complexion of the game as he scalped Jayawardena and Thirimanne in quick succession. Henriques joined the party and removed the dangerous Dilshan. Just when it looked like the Australians were on top, Mathews and Mendis brought Sri Lanka back into the match with a 79-run stand.

A pretty good performance by Australia to hit back hard and level the series. Having being put into bat they were struggling at 37/2, but Hughes played a spectacular unbeaten knock of 138 to power them to a competitive total.

48.3 C McKay to L Malinga, OUT! That's it! Australia win by 32 runs and level the series 2-2! McKay gets the last wicket! Short of a length delivery outside off, it is slower at 107.8 kph, Malinga is caught in his crease and looks to fend it away, it catches the shoulder of his bat and lobs to short third man where Johnson dives forward and pouches a smart catch. 215/10

48.3 C McKay to L Malinga, WIDE! Slips a slower delivery down the leg side, Malinga fails to connect. 215/9

48.2 C McKay to L Malinga, Play and a miss again! A slower delivery again outside off, Malinga swings and misses. 214/9

48.1 C McKay to L Malinga, Swing and a miss! Slower delivery outside off, Malinga heaves and misses. 214/9

Kulasekara will bowl the final over!

48.6 L Malinga to M Henriques, In the air but safe! Full and slower delivery outside off, Henriques goes for a loft but gets an outside edge which falls short of the third man fielder. They run through for a single. 236/5

48.5 L Malinga to M Henriques, Full outside off, Henriques square drives it straight to point. 235/5

The players have made their way out to the middle. David Warner and Matthew Wade are the two openers. Dilshan will start off proceedings for Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka - Mahela Jayawardena(C), Tillakaratne Dilshan, Lahiru Thirimanne, Dinesh Chandimal(Wk), Angelo Mathews, Kushal Janith Perera, Jeevan Mendis, Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara, Lasith Malinga, Rangana Herath.

Australia - Phillip Hughes, David Warner, George Bailey(C), David Hussey, Glenn Maxwell, Matthew Wade(Wk), Moises Henriques, Mitchell Johnson, Mitchell Starc, Clint McKay, Xavier Doherty.

TOSS - Sri Lanka have won the toss and elected to field. They have gone unchanged. While one change for Australia as Michael Clarke misses out due to injury and Glenn Maxwell replaces him in the side. George Bailey is the stand-in skipper today!

They would be looking to go all out in the pursuit to achieve the magical feat. Australia, on the other hand, are in dire straits as skipper Michael Clarke is doubtful for the ODI having picked up an injury in the training session. They have lost the chance to win the series but they would be looking to draw level which will be a confidence booster ahead of the T20I series. A cracker of a contest is definitely on the cards.

Hello and welcome to the coverage of the fifth and final ODI between Australia and Sri Lanka in Hobart. After the disappointment of the abandonment of the previous ODI at the SCG, the action now moves to Hobart and it's a big day for Sri Lanka. After a poor Test series, this is their chance to win the ODI series and become the first team ever to beat the Kangaroos in two bilateral ODI series in Australia.

47.6 M Starc to N Kulasekara, FOUR! Kulasekara is fighting it out in the middle! Length delivery on off, Kulasekara heaves it behind square leg for a boundary. 34 needed off 12 balls now! 214/9

47.6 M Starc to N Kulasekara, Clever from Starc! Kulasekara backs way too far away. Starc delivers it wide outside off but well within the guidelines and Kulasekara is forced to leave it alone. Surprisingly, the umpire signals it a wide! Harsh call! 210/9

47.5 M Starc to N Kulasekara, FOUR! Splendid shot! Full outside off, Kulasekara backs away and lofts it over extra cover for a boundary. 209/9
