Australia 170 all out in second ODI against Sri Lanka
ADELAIDE (Reuters) - Australia stumbled to 170 all out after being asked to bat first in the second one-day international against Sri Lanka on Sunday, giving the tourists a chance to level the five-match series.
Rain in Adelaide delayed the start of the match by about an hour and Sri Lanka's bowlers made use of cloud cover and moisture in the pitch to tie down the batsmen with the swinging ball.
Brad Haddin (50) and Ben Cutting (27) rallied the home side from 83-6 with 57 runs for the seventh wicket but paceman Lasith Malinga halted the recovery by dismissing debut-makers Cutting and Kane Richardson with successive deliveries.
Malinga finished with 3-32 as Sri Lanka set about avenging Friday's 107-run defeat in Melbourne.
