Sri Lanka won by 97 runs

0.1

Tuffey to Dilshan, no run, starts off with one angling in, Dilshan fails to make contact and the ball rolls away of the pad

0.1

Tuffey to Dilshan, no run

0.2

Tuffey to Dilshan, no run, good length delivery, again bowled from wide of the crease and coming in with the arm, this time though, Dilshan gets right behind the line and defends it with a straight bat

0.3

Tuffey to Dilshan, no run, slightly short and close to the off stump line, Dilshan goes for the cut and ends up with an inside edge. No room to go for the cut there and Dilshan played at it with zero footwork

0.4

Tuffey to Dilshan, no run, short of a good length delivery outside the off stump, this time Dilshan manages to tap it back down the track, not a convincing shot

0.5

Tuffey to Dilshan, FOUR, second time lucky - again short and outside the off stump, no real width there, Dilshan goes for the cut and ends up with an inside edge to the fine leg fence.

0.6

Tuffey to Dilshan, OUT, gone! Not so lucky on this occasion, again a short delivery outside the off stump and this time the ball clips the inside edge and crashes into the stumps. Once again Dilshan was looking to cut it away behind point and was beaten by the lack of pace.

TM Dilshan b Tuffey 4 (4m 6b 1x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

Sri Lanka 4/1   TM Dilshan 4 (6b 1x4)
