Aaron Finch happy to be a 'boring' captain

Such was Australia's frustration with the burgeoning stand, Finch called for review in the 10th over for a possible Perera caught behind chance off Richardson but replays showed the no edge.

Finch's 132-ball innings included 15 fours and five sixes as Sri Lanka were set a daunting 335 for victory but Dimuth Karunaratne's side looked on course for a shock win as the captain and Kusal Perera (52) put on 115 for the first wicket.

Mitchell Starc helped Australia survive a scare to go to the top of the Cricket World Cup standings with an 87-run win over Sri Lanka at The Oval on Saturday (Sunday NZ time).

"There have been times where I have gone the journey, I did against India and I probably will in the future as well". Whether my game suits that, I don't know.

It wasn't that Finch wasn't working hard.

"I think Smithy obviously rated Heady's bowling a little bit more, and that's fine. I think it will swing around so we'll have to bat well", Finch said.

Australia have three of the top five runscorers in the tournament in Finch, Warner and Smith. "I have no idea about those sort of things. Two lefties, he had a nice breeze to bowl with, to across, which allowed him to drift the ball quite a bit which made it - made it, he could shut down one side of the ground a bit easier". The Australian opener had a forgettable outing as he struggled to get going. Sri Lanka have told us they don't want to do it.

After the game against Pakistan in which Warner scored a century, Australia's assistant coach Ricky Ponting had spoken about how he was advising the left-hander to adopt a "see ball, hit ball" approach.

"I think in the back of his own mind to a certain degree, I think he was a little bit more anxious about getting out than scoring runs".

"With each game we're improving", he added.

Coming in at first drop against Sri Lanka, Khawaja departed for 10 off 20 balls when he went for a slog sweep and hit it straight down the throat of Milinda Siriwardana on the boundary. (He) saw the new ball out, attacked the right bowlers. In the match against India too, he was bottled up by the Indian pacemen. "The ICC will be speaking to them", said the ICC spokesperson.

Finch equalled his career-best one-day worldwide score with a masterful 153 and Steve Smith chipped in with 73 as Australia scored an imposing 334-7.

Steve Smith has found his groove in the middle of the order and Glenn Maxwell and Alex Carey are the finishing act. Sri Lanka have lost two matches, won one and had two washouts in Bristol.

But the island nation was un happy with that and as a outcome, they boycotted the post match presentation in Oval after losing to Australia by 87 runs.
