After taking the lead in first One-Day International (ODI), Australia are all out in the second one as well in Colombo. Australia bowled out Sri Lanka for 288 and James Faulkner achieved an unbelievable feat. He secured his first hat-trick and the 40th bowler to do so. Faulkner first picked the wicket of Kusal Perera when he went for reverse sweep misunderstanding the slow delivery and was rapped in front. In his next over Faulkner left no stone unturned and was all out for his second target in form of Angelo Mathews with Moises Henriques getting comfortable catch. He achieved his hat-trick when Thisara Perera was bowled out by Faulkner. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Sri Lanka vs Australia 2016, 2nd ODI at Colombo

The bowlers list show Pakistan’s veteran bowler Wasim Akram was ahead as he took two hat-tricks while Sri Lanka’s former pacer Chaminda Vaas also got two hat-tricks to his name. But if there is one bowler who created havoc and has mastered the hat-tricks was Lasith Malinga. He has achieved this feat against South Africa in 2007, Kenya in 2011 and Australia in the same year.

As for the match, Sri Lankan skipper Mathews won the toss and elected to bat first against Australia in the second One-Day International (ODI) in Colombo on Wednesday. The hosts, who are trailing the five-match series 1-0, made two changes from Sunday’s series opener. Seekkuge Prasanna and Danushka Gunathilaka came in for Lakshan Sandakan and Milinda Siriwardana. Sri Lanka’s pace spearhead Nuwan Pradeep, who missed the last two Tests against Australia with an injured hamstring, has been ruled out for the ODIs as well. Australia skipper Smith has opted for off-spinner Nathan Lyon in the starting XI in place of medium-pacer Josh Hazlewood.
