What can I say?

Gilly is gone, but Ponting has just hit a big six off Malinga. Australia 2/256 off 34.5 overs.

Update: 281/4 off the 38 overs. Ponting was run out for 37 after getting his eye in, Watson was elevated up the order and out soon after, and Clarke and Symonds couldn't quite get the boundaries coming off the last couple of overs. That is 20 runs short of what I thought was possible when Gilchrist was batting, but still a great effort. This morning I thought that the only chance Australia had of losing was that the Sri Lankan bowlers were too good for them. That didn't happen. Barring something remarkable from Jayasuriya (probably in his last game for Sri Lanka) or Jayawardene, Australia will win this.
