Time to call it a day! Thank you for your company today. Look forward to get in plenty of sleep and fuel before the massive game between India and Pakistan. This day has arrived, this is the game fans have been longing for. Hope to see your company tomorrow as well, the blog will be up 1 pm IST onwards. Do tune in for all the action, until then it is goodnight from here.

22:54 (IST)

Finch, Australia captain: We thought we were a touch short with the new ball, Kusal and Dimuth were superb. You want to bowl top-of-off and when they kept hitting there, we had to change plans. It was nice to see Maxwell bowl well. It is hard to get 10 overs out of him in every game. We have been improving each game. Our game in the middle overs was impressive. Starc is going the business again in an ICC tournament. 

22:52 (IST)

Dimuth Karunaratne, Sri Lanka captain: It was a pretty good wicket. We bowled really well. Then Smith and Finch batted really well, but we came back strongly in the death overs.  We got off to a good start with myself, but we could not capitalise and keep momentum going. Even when the middle order came in, they could not capitalise and could not handle the pressure. The Aussies are top-class bowlers, but we were missing a game pla to be honest. 

22:42 (IST)

Aaron Finch: Nice to get a couple of drives early in the innings, which is a good sign for my batting It was a nice wicket.  I've been working on keeping my balance from the startWas trying to take the game on a little bit. Smith is really good at finding the gap and rotating the strike. Absolutely he can get off the strike when you need to, finds a boundary when you need to. Credit to Sri Lanka, they executed superbly under pressure at the end.

After 45 overs,Sri Lanka 246/9 ( Dhananjaya de Silva 15 , Nuwan Pradeep 0)

Gosh! Even the TV umpire has been referred for a close catch to fine leg and he too has given it not out. Rightly so as far the catch is but not so right on the restless commentators (text and others) The soft signal was not out as well as the ball just seemed to bounce ahead of the fielder at short fine leg. The next ball goes above Behrendorff at short fine leg for a boundary. The game now spills in the 46th over.

FOUR! De Silva just trying some shots here now! He was lining up for the scoop, but Richardson bowls it wide, and even though he isn't able to walk across the ball, he has managed to reverse scoop this over Behrendorff at short fine leg.

22:26 (IST)

After 44 overs,Sri Lanka 240/9 ( Dhananjaya de Silva 10 , Nuwan Pradeep 0)

The crowd just getting a little restless with another over passing by with no wicket. The match is now forced into the 45th over. Cummins gets a couple to go over the stumps as Pradeep swings and misses for the final two balls after De Silva pulled to deep square leg for a single.

Emphasising on the importance of dot balls in limited overs cricket, Australia pacer Pat Cummins is delighted that the hard work he has put in to become accurate is starting to pay off.

Cummins is increasingly looking like the workhorse of this Australian team, plugging away with the wickets while others hog the headlines. The 26-year-old looked in great rhythm against Pakistan, taking 3 for 33 to derail their chase.

The right-arm pacer has bowled the most number of dot balls in the ongoing World Cup and the two bowlers that follow him are also from Australia -- Mitchell Starc and Nathan Coulter-Nile.

"That's the big improvement in my game in the last couple of years, the ability to hold a length and make it difficult to get runs," Cummins said after Australia's 41-run against Pakistan on Wednesday.

"If you give away easy singles then 300 becomes quite an achievable score. Cutting out the singles is huge, it means if you give away a boundary it might not be that big over of 10 or 11, it may just be a five or a six," Cummins added.

After they were set 308 for win, Pakistan scored steadily but Australia held their nerve and took wickets at regular intervals.

An eighth-wicket stand between Sarfaraz and Wahab Riaz, who scored 45 from just 39 balls, made it nervy for the defending champions until the last three wickets fell for just two runs - securing a third victory at the World Cup.

Cummins will once again be expected to play a key role for Australia when the defending champions play 1996 winners Sri Lanka in London's Kennington Oval on Saturday. With 3 wins from 4 games, Australia currently occupy the second place. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, have just one win from their 4 matches; they have lost one and two of their matches have been washed out.
