Over 1.6 Josh Hazlewood bowls a good length delivery to Kusal Perera, Boundary! Stays in his crease and swings his bat across the line. Didn't quite middle it

Over 2.2 Pat Cummins bowls a pitched up delivery to Pathum Nissanka, Boundary! Waits for the ball and uses the bowler's pace and angle to whip it away over square leg. A couple of bounces and into the fence

Over 2.4 Pat Cummins slips in a full toss to Charith Asalanka, Boundary! Gets under the ball and lofs it beautifully over mid-off and gets a boundary.

Over 2.4 Pat Cummins bowls it short of length to Charith Asalanka, no ball and Boundary! Gets in to the position very quickly and pulls it over mid-wicket and the ball raced away to the fence for four.

Over 3.3 GJ Maxwell tossed up delivery to Charith Asalanka, Boundary! Gets low and sweeps backward of square on the leg-side. Deep square leg can't cut it off

Over 4.5 Josh Hazlewood bowls a good length delivery to Charith Asalanka, Boundary! Stands tall and decides to send it downtown. A mistimed straight-pull but it has enough legs to reach the fence.

Over 5.4 Pat Cummins bowls it short of length to Kusal Perera, Boundary! Rock back in the crease and swivel-pulls and gets a fat top-edge that flies over the vacant slip cordon.

Over 8.4 Marcus Stoinis bowls a pitched up delivery to Kusal Perera, Boundary! Clears his front leg, waits and slaps it wide of extra cover. Smith sprints to his right from long-off but can only see the ball hit the fence

Over 8.5 Marcus Stoinis bowls a good length delivery to Kusal Perera, Boundary! Opens his bat-face at the point of contact as he drills it through backward point. Speeds away to the fence

Over 12.1 Mitchell Starc bowls a good length delivery to Wanindu Hasaranga, Boundary! Gets forward and  went at it with hard hands and no footwork. Beaten for pace and the away-angle, thereby getting a healthy edge. Third man was there but he was too square

Over 14.3 Josh Hazlewood bowls a half volley to Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Boundary! Leans forward and absolutely crunches the drive through the covers. Maxwell at sweeper cover didn't have a great deal of ground to cover

Over 16.2 Marcus Stoinis slips in a full toss to Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Boundary! Moves on the off-side pulled away through square leg and the ball raced away to the fence for four.

Over 16.3 Marcus Stoinis bowls it short of length to Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Boundary! Shuffles across on the back foot and pulled away to the deep backward square leg fence for four.

Over 17.3 Pat Cummins bowls a pitched up delivery to Dasun Shanaka, Boundary! Comes on to the front foot and smashes it through extra cover and the ball raced away to the fence for four.

Over 18.2 Mitchell Starc bowls a pitched up delivery to Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Boundary! Just hands through the ball, ensuring that he timed it well and used all of the pace on offer, lofting easily over the infield down the ground

Over 19.1 Josh Hazlewood bowls a pitched up delivery to Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Boundary! Backing away. Sliced the drive with power, beating extra cover and Cummins from sweeper did well initially with the slide but couldn't haul the ball back in
