View dismissal EMDY Munaweera run out (Mpofu/†Taylor) 17 33 19 3 0 89.47
6.3 from Utseya, an action-filled delivery. Muna tries to sweep a full and straight delivery, and just about manages to get bat on it. He takes off despite hitting it straight to short fine leg. Dilshan sends him back, and he loses his bat while turning back. And not having the bat in his hand has cost him a bit of reach and also his wicket 54/1
View dismissal TM Dilshan c †Taylor b Cremer 39 49 28 5 0 139.28
9.5 53.4 mph, Cremer has come back well from that wicket off a no-ball with a quick delivery. Dilshan tries to cut it, there seems to be a noise, and Zimbabwe are pretty certain they have Dilshan caught at the wicket. The umpire takes his time before raising the wicket, and neither batsman looks happy with the decision 75/2
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* run out (Waller/Cremer) 13 22 18 1 0 72.22
11.3 Cremer to Sangakkara, that's a risky second. Cut away to deep point, and they pause a moment before starting the second. When they do decide to take it, they decide to take the second on the throw. The throw follows Jayawardene at non-striker's end, and he is out comfortably. That's Waller's throw. Some redemption for him 82/3
View dismissal KC Sangakkara run out (Waller/†Taylor) 44 48 26 2 1 169.23
19.4 from Mpofu, full and wide, hit to deep cover, and Sanga has run himself out trying a near-impossible second, but he was possibly taking a chance against sloppy what has been sloppy Zimbabwean fielding 176/4

View dismissal H Masakadza b BAW Mendis 20 36 23 3 0 86.95
7.2 49.7 mph, googly there. This is not an offbreak, mind you. this is bowled from the back of the hand. Masakadza thinks he has picked a carrom ball, and plays for the turn away. The ball, however, comes back in from outside off, and bursts through the gate. Mr Mendis, we have been expecting you 43/3
View dismissal V Sibanda b BAW Mendis 11 23 16 1 0 68.75
5.3 56.3 mph, and it takes Mendis three balls to strike. And this is his favourite way of striking. Length ball, on middle, Sibanda plays for the angle, the ball holds its line enough to beat him, and strike the middle stump. Welcome back, Ajantha 37/1
View dismissal BRM Taylor*† st †Sangakkara b BAW Mendis 0 3 1 0 0 0.00
5.4 56.9 mph, and he is done in by the carrom ball first ball. On a length, on off, Taylor plays for a straightish delivery, and the turns goes past him. Sanga is pretty sure he has got him stumped. Replays show Taylor has lifted the foot during the exact second that Sanga flicks the bails off. That's gone for mine, but he might just get the benefit of the doubt as he lifted the bat only for a brief second. Thankfully the bowler prevails 37/2
View dismissal E Chigumbura b BAW Mendis 19 36 19 1 1 100.00
13.6 56.7 mph, Mendis has four for the fourth time in his career. And three of them bowled. This looks like a googly too. Full, pitched just outside off, Chigumbura plays for the turn away, and the ball sneaks through to hit off 80/6
View dismissal CR Ervine st †Sangakkara b BMAJ Mendis 10 14 13 0 1 76.92
10.3 52.6 mph, googly, doesn't read it, makes room to drive, misses by a mile, and he has overbalanced. Sanga stumps him, and doesn't even feel the need to appeal. Ervine doesn't walk, Sanga appeals, and the replay shows his foot in the air. Zimbabwe have no answer for the Mendises tonight 58/4
View dismissal MN Waller lbw b BMAJ Mendis 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
10.5 53.9 mph, J Mendis gets two in his first over too. That might seal his MOM, And it's a googly here, and Chigumbura is deep in his crease, and is hit in front 58/5
View dismissal AG Cremer b BMAJ Mendis 17 22 20 2 0 85.00
16.5 54.3 mph, natural variation for Mendis. Flighted legbreak, Cremer has read this right, but the ball doesn't turn enough, and squeezes through the gap between pad and bat to hit the middle stump 93/9
View dismissal P Utseya c Jayawardene b BAW Mendis 1 4 2 0 0 50.00
15.1 57.6 mph, Can he ever? Tossed up putside off, making the tailender drive, the ball turns away a little, and the edge goes into the lap of Mahela at slip. That's Mendis second five-for in Twenty20 Internationals 87/7
View dismissal KM Jarvis lbw b BAW Mendis 0 1 3 0 0 0.00
15.4 55.4 mph, that's best bowling figures in all T20 internationals, beating Mendis's own 6 for 16. This is a googly, and as alien to Jarvis as Persian. Short of a length, pitched outside off, beats his bat by a mile, and traps him smack in front 87/8

View dismissal CB Mpofu c sub (LD Chandimal) b Malinga 0 5 2 0 0 0.00
17.3 85.4 mph, slower ball, too good form Mpofu as he lobs it to mid-off while backing away 100/10
