Sri Lanka in England T20I Match

England v Sri Lanka

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

6.1

Perera to Pietersen, 1 run, Perera, the new bowler, seems much more enticing than Malinga. He starts short and wide and Pietersen crashes to deep point. Good shot for one

6.2

Perera to Morgan, 1 run, Morgan clips off his hip, without much power, to square leg

6.3

Perera to Pietersen, FOUR, Pietersen charges down and seems to intimidate Perera who goes back of a length and wide in response. Pietersen stands tall and emphatically powers a drive wide of mid-off for four

6.4

Perera to Pietersen, FOUR, inventive! Don't see this much. Pietersen down the wicket and strolls a long, long way outside off stump. Ends up flipping it over short fine leg, up on one knee, for four

6.5

Perera to Pietersen, 1 run, Perera is lucky to get away with this, shin-high full toss outside off stump. Pietersen crunches a back-foot swish to deep cover

6.6

Perera to Morgan, no run, good end to the over from Perera, back of a length and a tight line. Morgan's leg-side clip goes straight to short fine leg

England 44/2   NLTC Perera 1-0-11-0

10.1

Perera to Morgan, 1 run, a low, dipping full-toss is heaved out to wide long-on, and there are ironic cheers from the packed crowd as Mathews stops it cleanly

10.2

Perera to Pietersen, (no ball) 1 run, another full-toss - this one quite high - is thrashed down to long-on. Ah, and that's called a no-ball for height by Nigel Llong. Rightfully so

10.2

Perera to Morgan, SIX, a little too predictably, another full-toss is dished up and this time Morgan is waiting for it, swiping the ball high over the midwicket boundary

10.3

Perera to Morgan, SIX, six more! Another high full toss and Morgan sends it arcing over the leg-side, baseball style. A real crowdkiller, and don't they love it!

10.4

Perera to Morgan, 1 run, this time he manages to land a delivery, and Morgan shovels the half-volley out into the deep

10.5

Perera to Pietersen, 2 runs, full and very wide indeed, KP throws everything at it and a thick outside edge flies down to third man, where Lakmal cuts it off

10.6

Perera to Pietersen, SIX, six more! Another full toss and it's savagely dealt with by Pietersen, who smites it handsomely straight back over the bowler's head. A massive 24 runs from the over

England 91/2   NLTC Perera 2-0-35-0
