Sri Lanka edge out Australia to book semi spot: 2013 CT#12 AUS v SRL (Oval)

Australia's troubled summer continued as they were knocked out of the Champions Trophy by Sri Lanka who booked their semi final berth.

Mahela Jayawardene's unbeaten 84 lifted Sri Lanka to a competitive total of 253 for eight. In reply, Australia, who needed to reach their target in 29.1 overs to make the last four, started brightly but fell apart until a last wicket stand of 41 between McKay and Doherty gave them some hope.

Sri Lanka 253 for 8 (Jayawardene 84*, Thirimanne 57, Johnson 3-48) beat Australia 233 (Voges 49, Kulasekara 3-42) by 20 runs.

Australia have lost their mojo. Even though Matthews tried hard to slow things down by not bowling his top bowlers at the tail (spot fixing????), Aussies were woeful.
