Nokia Champions League T20 - Qualifying Tournament Pool B

Leicestershire v Ruhuna

Ruhuna won by 4 runs

1.4

Gurney to Jayasuriya, OUT, well bowled Gurney, the MP is on his way. Legspinning slower ball, lands short of a length on off stump and straightens past Sanath's skip down the track and attempt to heace. He was through with the shot a second too early and off stump is disturbed.

ST Jayasuriya b Gurney 6 (13m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Ruhuna 7/1   ML Udawatte 1* (1b)   HF Gurney 0.4-0-4-1

3.1

Gurney to Udawatte, OUT, Gurney's slower balls are doing the job at the moment. Another slow legspinner from the left armer, Udawatte tries to work it off the pads, but it straightens to take the leading edge and balloon into the Hyderabad afternoon. The bowler calls for it, and completes a nice catch.

ML Udawatte c & b Gurney 2 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Ruhuna 17/2   LD Chandimal 6* (7b 1x6)   HF Gurney 1.1-0-7-2

7.3

Abdul Razzaq to MDKJ Perera, OUT, top-edged and gone. Perera looks to pull a short ball from Razzaq, but he seemed a touch late on the shot, and had no room to really free the arms. Top-edge loops up to fine-leg who runs in and completes the catch.

MDKJ Perera c Naik b Abdul Razzaq 19 (17m 15b 2x4 1x6) SR: 126.66

Ruhuna 47/3   LD Chandimal 14* (18b 1x4 1x6)   Abdul Razzaq 1.3-0-6-1

9.4

Abdul Razzaq to Gunaratne, OUT, 100 T20 wickets for the Razzler. Gunaratne is gone, flapping listlessly from his crease without moving towards the line. Outside edge nestles in Nixon's gloves.

LJP Gunaratne c †Nixon b Abdul Razzaq 1 (8m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Ruhuna 67/4   LD Chandimal 32* (28b 3x4 2x6)   Abdul Razzaq 2.4-0-17-2

15.4

Henderson to Siriwardana, OUT, Milinda is gone, he doesn't get to the pitch as he tries lofting Henderson over long-on, and the leading edge goes high rather than far. Mid-off runs back and collects it.

TAM Siriwardana c White b Henderson 17 (28m 21b 1x4 0x6) SR: 80.95

Ruhuna 111/5   LD Chandimal 48* (43b 4x4 2x6)   CW Henderson 3.4-0-27-1

19.2

Gurney to Karunanayake, OUT, Shalika's enterprising effort comes to an end. Full ball outside off, he times the square drive well, but point tumbles forward to scoop it.

KPSP Karunanayake c Abdul Razzaq b Gurney 28 (16m 15b 2x4 2x6) SR: 186.66

Ruhuna 152/6   LD Chandimal 61* (50b 6x4 2x6)   HF Gurney 3.2-0-26-3
