Mathews and Malinga record stand snatch dramatic win: 1st ODI (MCG) - 2 of 2

A record ninth-wicket partnership between Angelo Mathews and Lasith Malinga took Sri Lanka from the brink of defeat to victory against Australia. Sri Lanka were in deep trouble at 107-8, with Xavier Doherty taking four wickets and a run-out. But then Mathews (77 not out) and Malinga (56) put on 132 before Muttiah Muralitharan hit the winning run. Earlier, exciting young paceman Thisara Perera was the hero for the tourists with 5-46 from eight overs. The Australians were cruising at 1-85 when Perera struck. An unbeaten 71 from Michael Hussey then helped Australia to 239. 1st ODI (MCG). Nov 2010
