Australia thrash Sri Lanka by 10 wickets in the Super Eights


Australia wrap up a ten-wicket victory with almost half of their overs to spare, and it is they who march on to the semi-finals where they will be joined by Pakistan, South Africa (barring miracles) and either New Zealand or India.


Sri Lanka’s bowlers were on a hiding to nothing once their batsmen had capitulated. Perhaps they were still scarred by their mauling in the World Cup final … who knows. It was pretty comprehensive either way.


We were not very consistent, especially with the bat,” says Mahela Jayawardene. “We started really well [in the tournament] but the momentum wasn’t there for us.”


Adam Gilchrist is delighted with his team’s performance. “A lot of teams would have liked us to be knocked out today. Hopefully they are a little nervous now.”

“Our fielders and our bowlers were outstanding. To chase on that wicket … it’s getting really tired and it would have been difficult. Our bowlers definitely won that match for us.”
