Sri Lanka in England T20I Match

England v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 9 wickets (with 16 balls remaining)

7.1

Randiv to Pietersen, 1 wide, Randiv is the new bowler and starts by spearing a wide one across Pietersen from around the wicket

7.1

Randiv to Pietersen, no run, again Randiv is very wide and had Pietersen not got a toe-end on this it would have been called a wide as well

7.2

Randiv to Pietersen, 1 run, fired in straight this time and it's worked to the leg side

7.3

Randiv to Morgan, 1 run, worked into space for a single

7.4

Randiv to Pietersen, no run, fired across the right hander again, quite wide of off but Pietersen misses his cut

7.5

Randiv to Pietersen, SIX, real thwack off the bat. You could here the noise reverberate around the ground as Pietersen thrust a foot forward and flat-batted this very, very hard for six down to long-on

7.6

Randiv to Pietersen, no run, sharp fielding off his own bowling saves Randiv a single

England 53/2   S Randiv 1-0-9-0

9.1

Randiv to Morgan, 2 runs, good shot here, Morgan down the wicket and swishing to deep cover where some excellent sliding fielding saves the boundary

9.2

Randiv to Morgan, 1 run, turned around the corner for one

9.3

Randiv to Pietersen, 1 run, the angle across Pietersen is causing the batsman a touch of bother and he can't get any power on a drive

9.4

Randiv to Morgan, 1 run, Randiv pauses before delivering, Morgan waits, and drive down the ground when it eventually arrives

9.5

Randiv to Pietersen, 1 run, ooof, Pietersen really hacked hard at this to cover

9.6

Randiv to Morgan, 1 run, chopped out to deep point

England 67/2   S Randiv 2-0-16-0

13.1

Randiv to Bopara, no run, leading edge! But it drops just short of a diving Kandamby at extra cover. Randiv staying round the wicket to the right-handers

13.2

Randiv to Bopara, 1 run, driven down to long-off for one

13.3

Randiv to Patel, no run, full outside off and angling further, Patel drives to cover

13.4

Randiv to Patel, OUT, direct-hit, and Patel has been run-out! He was looking to run the ball past point, but hit the fielder. Inexplicably, he wandered out of his crease and was slow to get back as the throw came in. Lazy dismissal ... and Samit is utterly disconsolate as he walks off

SR Patel run out 0 (2m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

13.5

Randiv to Wright, 1 run, well, this could've been really tight as well! Wright tapped the ball to Jayawardene at point and set off, Bopara sprinted across and dived into the crease ... but the throw was a little wide and he's safe

13.6

Randiv to Bopara, 1 run, nurdled wide of midwicket for a rather more sedate single to end the over

England 104/5   S Randiv 3-0-19-0

15.1

Randiv to Bopara, 1 run, full toss on middle, Bopara jumps out and heaves to wide long-on

15.2

Randiv to Wright, no run, held back a touch by Randiv, and Wright can't get it away

15.3

Randiv to Wright, 2 runs, this one is quicker and Randiv finds some extra bounce outside off. Wright had committed himself to the cut, however, and though he hit it in the air the ball flew well over the point fielder's head

15.4

Randiv to Wright, 1 run, driven down to long-on for a single

15.5

Randiv to Bopara, 1 run, again Bopara uses his feet, getting right to the pitch to drive down to long-on

15.6

Randiv to Wright, no run, Wright moves across to the off side but Randiv follows him with a quicker one, beating the outside edge of a flailing bat

England 114/5   S Randiv 4-0-24-0
