Full Highlights Sri Lanka v Australia, 4th ODI, Hambantota 20th August,2011
Xavier Doherty's four-wicket haul set up Australia's crushing win in the fourth ODI in Colombo
Australia 133 for 5 (Marsh 70, Prasanna 3-32) beat Sri Lanka 132 (Jayawardene 53, Lee 4-15, Doherty 4-28) by five wickets
Crisis? What crisis? To watch Australia demolish Sri Lanka in the fourth ODI in Colombo, it would be easy to believe all was well with Australian cricket. Thanks to some fine bowling from Xavier Doherty and Brett Lee, a calm innings from Shaun Marsh, and a couple of brain explosions from Sri Lanka's batsmen, Australia secured the series with a match in hand, courtesy a five-wicket win in the fourth ODI.
Australia won with 132 balls to spare, which is their second-largest ODI win in Sri Lanka in terms of balls remaining. For Sri Lanka, though, this was their largest defeat at home.
Only six times have Sri Lanka been bowled out for a lower total in home ODIs. The previous such instance was more than five years ago.
There were six ducks in the match, which is the most in an ODI in Sri Lanka. The most in an ODI anywhere is eight, in the 1979 World Cup final.
Brett Lee's 4 for 15 are his best figures in Sri Lanka, going past his previous best of 4 for 28 against Pakistan in a World Cup game earlier this year.
Xavier Doherty's 4 for 28 are his best figures in ODIs, and his second four-for. His first one was also against Sri Lanka, on debut.
Only five Sri Lankans have had better figures on ODI debut than Seekkuge Prasanna's 3 for 32.
Sri Lanka's 132 was never likely to be enough to keep the series alive, and so it proved, although there was one significant highlight late in the game, an unexpected triple-wicket maiden from their debutant spinner, Seekkuge Prasanna. In fact, the five wickets Sri Lanka collected came in two overs, after an earlier double-wicket maiden from Lasith Malinga.
Prasanna had Marsh caught behind cutting for 70, and followed next ball with Michael Hussey, who edged behind for a golden duck. The hat-trick ball was negotiated by David Hussey, but he fell off the very next delivery when he played back to a ball that was much too full, and was bowled, to leave Prasanna with 3 for 32.
