0.1

Kulasekara to Lumb, no run, ah, welcome to T20! Kulasekara lands a shortish wide ball that Lumb aims a massive yahoo at and misses. Bell would have silkily cut that for four. Just saying.

0.2

Kulasekara to Lumb, 1 run, ooh, edged but wide of slip! Lumb gets squared up, in a way Bell would not have, as a ball zips off the seam. Runs to third man to get England and Lumb away

0.6

Kulasekara to Lumb, 1 run, Lumb is more secure here, chopping a shortish ball to third man to end a quiet first over

England 3/0   MJ Lumb 2* (3b)
1.1

Lakmal to Lumb, no run, short and wide to begin with and another big swipe from Lumb at fresh air

1.2

Lakmal to Lumb, no run, good grief. That is a serious hoik. Again at fresh air but you have to admire the, well, I'm not sure but good intent I suppose

1.3

Lakmal to Lumb, OUT, well, you have to say that was coming. Lumb departs. Swinging across the line, the ball found a top edge that went high towards mid-off. Not a happy return for Lumb, still looks like Bell would have been a better option

MJ Lumb c Malinga b Lakmal 2 (5m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

England 3/1   MJ Lumb 2 (6b)
