McKay to Thirimanne, FOUR, ooh, yorker length outside off, tries to dig it out and he did so, but over Haddin's head, bump ball and over the keeper for a boundary

Sri Lanka 6/1   HDRL Thirimanne 5* (9b 1x4)   CJ McKay 1.3-0-6-1

Richardson to Dilshan, FOUR, a touch too straight and Dilshan collects his first boundary, angling in towards middle and he drives it hard through mid-on and midwicket for a boundary

Sri Lanka 16/1   TM Dilshan 6* (8b 1x4)   KW Richardson 3-2-7-0

McKay to Thirimanne, FOUR, over second slip, Hussey couldn't reach it, Thirimanne was getting frustrated, stepped out of the pitch and tried to smash that over extra cover, got a thick edge and it flew over the slips for a boundary

Sri Lanka 20/1   HDRL Thirimanne 12* (30b 2x4)   CJ McKay 3.5-0-11-1

McKay to Dilshan, FOUR, finally connects one properly, on the up, drives it hard and uppishly between cover and point, in the gap and four runs

Sri Lanka 32/1   TM Dilshan 16* (21b 2x4)   CJ McKay 4.3-0-17-1

Cutting to Thirimanne, FOUR, superbly cut, was that out of frustration? Whatever it was, it came out right, short of a length on middle, created room by moving away and slashed it along the ground behind point

Sri Lanka 40/1   HDRL Thirimanne 19* (42b 3x4)   BCJ Cutting 2.1-0-11-0

Cutting to Thirimanne, FOUR, a boundary that raises Sri Lanka's half-century, short of a length, made room to cut that and probably went much finer than he wanted, fetched him four though, third man is a little square

Sri Lanka 52/1   HDRL Thirimanne 29* (54b 4x4)   BCJ Cutting 4-0-18-0

Richardson to Thirimanne, FOUR, uppish, pitched up and he leaned forward and sliced that one between cover and point, opened the face but timed it well and in the gap

Sri Lanka 60/1   HDRL Thirimanne 34* (61b 5x4)   KW Richardson 4.4-3-11-0

McKay to Thirimanne, FOUR, picked the slower one did Thirimanne, came down the track while simultaneously making some room, McKay had dragged it short, Thirimanne dispatched it over mid-on for a boundary

Sri Lanka 72/1   HDRL Thirimanne 43* (75b 6x4)   CJ McKay 7-0-25-1

McKay to Dilshan, FOUR, drops that one short outside off and Dilshan drags it past midwicket, big gap behind that fielder and he finds the boundary

Sri Lanka 81/1   TM Dilshan 32* (53b 3x4)   CJ McKay 7.2-0-30-1

Smith to Dilshan, FOUR, Dilshan picks up a boundary, that was flighted, he came down the track, got to the pitch and drilled it hard past the diving midwicket, mid-on is inside the circle

Sri Lanka 90/1   TM Dilshan 37* (58b 4x4)   SPD Smith 2-0-8-0

Cutting to Thirimanne, FOUR, too much width there from Cutting, short and wide and Thirimanne thrashes that to the point boundary, no chance there for third man

Sri Lanka 113/1   HDRL Thirimanne 63* (99b 7x4)   BCJ Cutting 7-0-33-0

Maxwell to Thirimanne, FOUR, angling in towards middle, Thirimanne steps out and drives that nicely inside out over extra cover for a boundary, Sri Lanka are coasting now

Sri Lanka 122/1   HDRL Thirimanne 69* (102b 8x4)   GJ Maxwell 1-0-9-0

Cutting to Thirimanne, FOUR, he's been strong in that region today, short of a length and he made some room to cart that over point for a one bounce four

Sri Lanka 128/1   HDRL Thirimanne 74* (105b 9x4)   BCJ Cutting 7.2-0-37-0

McKay to Thirimanne, FOUR, bad ball from McKay, short ball down the leg side and Thirimanne helps it on its way to the fine-leg boundary, Doherty can't stop that

Sri Lanka 135/1   HDRL Thirimanne 80* (109b 10x4)   CJ McKay 8.4-0-38-1

Doherty to MDKJ Perera, FOUR, pitched up outside off, plenty of width and Perera crashes that through extra cover for four more

Sri Lanka 157/2   MDKJ Perera 12* (7b 1x4 1x6)   XJ Doherty 5.4-0-27-0

Doherty to Thirimanne, FOUR, Thirimanne takes a chance and gets a boundary, that was tossed up and he came down, got to the pitch and swung it into that gap between long-on and deep midwicket

Sri Lanka 167/2   HDRL Thirimanne 97* (132b 11x4)   XJ Doherty 6.1-0-33-0

Maxwell to Thirimanne, FOUR, Reaches his century and scores the inning runs as well, short and he makes room to cut that past point to complete the formalities, it's his first List A century, he's relieved, takes off his helmet, acknowledges the applause and then shakes hands with the hosts, the series is level 1-1

Sri Lanka 172/2   HDRL Thirimanne 102* (134b 12x4)   GJ Maxwell 3.1-0-19-0
