Adelaide: Jan 13, 2013

Sri Lanka produced an inspired bowling performance to bundle out Australia for a modest 170 in the second One-Day International at the Adelaide Oval on Sunday.

Electing to field, Sri Lanka put tremendous pressure on the young Australian batting line-up and didn’t allow any easy runs.

Brad Haddin was the top run-getter for the hosts, as the other Australian batsmen struggled against the Sri Lankan bowling attack.

Haddin’s half-century was the only bright spot for the Aussies. The comeback wicketkeeper batsman struck four boundaries and a six to score 50 off 67 balls.

Haddin added 57 runs for the seventh wicket with Ben Cutting, which was Australia’s highest partnership.

Australian captain George Bailey and David Hussey added crucial 39 runs for the third wicket, in a bid to steady the hosts after losing the openers early on.

Sri Lanka pacer Lasith Maliga bagged three key wickets for 32 off his nine overs, whereas all-rounder Angelo Mathews impressed with two for 24 from his 10 overs.

Phil Hughes, who scored a fluent century in the first match, could manage only three runs off the 14 balls he faced.

Earlier, Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene won the toss and elected to field.

Australia are 1-0 up in the series, having won the first ODI match at Melbourne by 107 runs, with debutant Hughes smashing a century.

Sri Lankan batsmen faltered, with three run outs proving costly for the visitors at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Brief Scores: Australia 170 all-out in 46.5 overs (Brad Haddin 50, David Hussey 29; Lasith Malinga 3 for 32, Angelo Mathews 2 for 24) vs Sri Lanka
