7 November 2010 - day/night match (50-over match)
11.1

Watson to Tharanga, no run, on target at 127kph, swinging in just a fraction, Tharanga defends

11.2

Watson to Tharanga, 2 wides, inswing once more but misdirected down leg, Haddin dives across and just gets a glove on that to nudge it down. Marais Erasmus has called that a wide, but I thought there was a noise on that and the ball had brushed the pad

11.2

Watson to Silva, no run, probing length outside off, as Watson tries to allow the ball to swing, Silva drives to mid-off

11.3

Watson to Silva, no run, bouncer - wide of off and the batsman sways safely out of the way

11.4

Watson to Silva, no run, on off stump and Silva blocks it back down the pitch

11.5

Watson to Silva, no run, wrong line down leg, Silva flicks it to square leg and can't get a run - he'll be disappointed with that

11.6

Watson to Silva, no run, is that out! No, it's bounced just short. That was a good, fullish outswinger that tempted Silva into a full-blooded drive that sailed in the air to point, Steven Smith takes it low to the ground but immediately signals to the umpires that the ball bounced short of him

Sri Lanka 45/3   SR Watson 1-0-2-0
13.1

Watson to Tharanga, no run, inswinger on the off stump, Tharanga drives to mid-off

13.2

Watson to Tharanga, no run, cut into the turf and it's collected by slip

13.3

Watson to Tharanga, 1 wide, bouncer but misdirected a little down leg, that's called a wide

13.3

Watson to Tharanga, 2 runs, driven in the air and mistimed, but that's landed safely between midwicket and mid-on

13.4

Watson to Tharanga, no run, Watson is getting good inswing to the left-hander, Tharanga drives this to mid-on

13.5

Watson to Tharanga, OUT, Watson makes the breakthrough! He's swung it in to Tharanga, who pushed forward without much intent, the ball struck him in line and Erasmus says that's out. Pitched in line, straightened well and the only question was height, but it looked good at first glance.

WU Tharanga lbw b Watson 28 (64m 53b 3x4 0x6) SR: 52.83

13.6

Watson to Mathews, no run, outside off and swinging away, Mathews leaves it alone

Sri Lanka 50/4   SR Watson 2-0-5-1
15.1

Watson to Silva, no run, full and swinging away, it's driven to cover

15.2

Watson to Silva, no run, on off stump, Chamara Silva defends

15.3

Watson to Silva, no run, clipped to midwicket and Silva wants a run, Ferguson is quickly on to that to deny him

15.4

Watson to Silva, 1 run, in the air and just safe! Silva has hooked but doesn't get hold of that at all, Ferguson at midwicket ran back and just couldn't get to it in time, not far off a catch chance

15.5

Watson to Mathews, 1 wide, down leg side, that's a wide

15.5

Watson to Mathews, 1 run, almost played on, a thick inside edge on to the pad and from there it could have gone anywhere - luckily for Mathews that has bounced towards gully to allow a single

15.6

Watson to Silva, no run, nudged to midwicket, can't find the gap

Sri Lanka 58/4   SR Watson 3-0-8-1
17.1

Watson to Silva, no run, attacking the stumps again, it's pushed back to Watson

17.2

Watson to Silva, no run, a hint of outswing, it's been nudged towards cover

17.3

Watson to Silva, 1 wide, slower ball down leg side a touch, that's a wide

17.3

Watson to Silva, no run, angled bat from Silva, who just pushes along the ground to point

17.4

Watson to Silva, no run, ah, good outswing from Watson and Silva dabs at that, tries to guide through gully but it beats the bat

17.5

Watson to Silva, no run, bouncer and well-directed, Silva ducks it

17.6

Watson to Silva, no run, and a second bouncer to surprise Silva, again he ducks underneath it

Sri Lanka 66/4   SR Watson 4-0-9-1
19.1

Watson to Mathews, no run, good line on off stump at 135kph, Mathews defends

19.2

Watson to Mathews, 1 run, almost inside-edge onto the stumps, it's sneaked past towards square leg to allow him a single

19.3

Watson to Silva, no run, nice line from Watson, on off stump and swinging away just a teensy bit - Silva defends

19.4

Watson to Silva, no run, slower ball on leg stump, it runs off the pads through to Haddin

19.5

Watson to Silva, no run, straight-bat defence from Silva

19.6

Watson to Silva, 1 run, again full enough to swing, squares the batsman up and a thick edge runs away to third man
