Compaq Cup - 1st match

Sri Lanka v New Zealand

Sri Lanka won by 97 runs

1.1

Bond to Jayasuriya, no run, good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, Jayasuriya just about manages to punch it back down the track. Looks like a slow track and the ball is stopping a bit

1.2

Bond to Jayasuriya, 1 run, worked away off the pads to the square leg region

1.6

Bond to Jayasuriya, no run, defended on the front-foot

Sri Lanka 6/2   ST Jayasuriya 1* (3b)

3.1

Bond to Jayasuriya, no run, good length delivery on the stumps, Jayasuriya pushes forward and defends it down on the off side

3.2

Bond to Jayasuriya, no run, on the middle and off stump line, defended off the front-foot

3.3

Bond to Jayasuriya, no run, short of a good length delivery, pitch close to the off stump line and this one shaped away a touch. Jayasuriya leaves it through to the keeper

3.4

Bond to Jayasuriya, no run, effort ball on the middle and off stump line, not a quick delivery but Jayasuriya is not interested and he sways away from the line

3.5

Bond to Jayasuriya, no run, defended outside the off stump

3.6

Bond to Jayasuriya, no run, maiden over! pitched up outside the off stump, Jayasuriya gets forward to the pitch of the delivery and drives it straight to the fielder at mid-off. Good looking shot but the ball went straight to the fielder

Sri Lanka 12/2   ST Jayasuriya 1* (9b)

4.2

Tuffey to Jayasuriya, no run, bit of width offered outside the off stump and Jayasuriya has a go at it, connects well but finds the fielder at short cover

4.3

Tuffey to Jayasuriya, no run, good length delivery outside the off stump, no shot offered

4.4

Tuffey to Jayasuriya, 1 run, punched down to mid-off, the fielder is deep and they scamper through for a single

Sri Lanka 14/2   ST Jayasuriya 2* (12b)

5.4

Bond to Jayasuriya, 1 run, defended down to mid-off, once again played with soft hands and a quick single is added to the total. Vettori's throw at the bowler's end fails to hit the stumps - direct hit would have been interesting

5.6

Bond to Jayasuriya, 1 run, half a chance - good length delivery on the middle and off stump line and Jayasuriya tries to lift it over the infield but ends up hitting it in the air to the square leg region, bit of a mis-hit. Oram rushed in from the deep but failed to make it across in time

Sri Lanka 19/2   ST Jayasuriya 4* (14b)

6.1

Tuffey to Jayasuriya, 2 runs, driven wide of the fielder at cover

6.2

Tuffey to Jayasuriya, 1 run, again pushed wide of the fielder at cover

Sri Lanka 22/2   ST Jayasuriya 7* (16b)

7.1

Bond to Jayasuriya, no run, short delivery outside the off stump and this one stayed low after hitting the deck. Jayasuriya leans back and cuts hard and is beaten by the lack of bounce

7.2

Bond to Jayasuriya, no run, played away off the back-foot to the cover region

7.3

Bond to Jayasuriya, no run, good length delivery on the middle and off stump line, excellent line this from Bond. Jayasuriya gets forward and taps it down to mid-off

7.4

Bond to Jayasuriya, OUT, that's the end of that! short and wide outside the off stump, Jayasuriya goes for the cut, ball clips the top edge and flies straight to Butler at third man who nicely settles under it. Sri Lanka three down and in trouble here

ST Jayasuriya c Butler b Bond 7 (36m 20b 0x4 0x6) SR: 35.00

Sri Lanka 22/3   ST Jayasuriya 7 (20b)
