Sri Lanka 9 for 243 (Mathews 77*, Malinga 56, Doherty 4-46) beat Australia 8 for 239 (Hussey 71*, Perera 5-46) by 1 wicket
Some members of the World Cricket Watch team were at the MCG last night and the place was rocking, it was like little Columbo with a crowd of 20,000 of which 19,000 were Sri Lankan. I would say this was quite possibly the greatest ODI I have ever witnessed live at the stadium. The partnership between Matthews and Malinga was sensational and for Murali to hit the winning runs on his last time at “the G”, well, you just couldn’t write that. Enjoy all the Sri Lankans!
