Australia went to bat first and managed to pile up a total of 253in 50 overs at the loss of 6 wickets. Adam Gilchrist 61 And Micheal Clarke 77 were the two batsman who made most of the runs. Srilanka was pushed to the back foot right from the start of their run chase. Both their openers fell for a cheap score and that too in quick succession. While Sangakkara was left with the responsibility of consolidating the innings wickets kept tumbling at the other end. Finally Sangakkara was castled by a beautiful delivery by Bracken, all hopes of Srilanka savin the match had shattered. Bracken went on to take a 5 wicket haul, which is one ODI career. At last Srilanka was dismissed cheaply for a total of 125.
