Sri Lanka in England T20I Match

England v Sri Lanka

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

2.2

Kulasekara to Pietersen, FOUR, ah wonderful shot. Pietersen skips down and outside off stump and easily clips, with a flick of the wrists, wide of mid-on for four

England 11/1   KP Pietersen 5* (2b 1x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 1.2-0-8-0

3.3

Lakmal to Morgan, FOUR, four this time! Similar shot not timed quite as well. It was close to Lakmal as the bowler jumped but Morgan's strong forearms seemed to muscle it past him

England 23/2   EJG Morgan 10* (4b 1x4 1x6)   RAS Lakmal 1.3-0-14-1

4.1

Kulasekara to Morgan, FOUR, another lovely shot from Morgan. So easy. It was a shin-high full toss admittedly, but Morgan drove sweetly straight past the bowler for four

England 28/2   EJG Morgan 15* (7b 2x4 1x6)   KMDN Kulasekara 2.1-0-13-1

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

England 39/2   KP Pietersen 16* (11b 2x4)   NLTC Perera 0.3-0-6-0

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

England 43/2   KP Pietersen 20* (12b 3x4)   NLTC Perera 0.4-0-10-0

8.5

Lakmal to Morgan, FOUR, unlucky for the bowler. Shortish and Morgan's carve went off the top edge finer than he expected to the third man boundary

England 59/2   EJG Morgan 23* (20b 3x4 1x6)   RAS Lakmal 2.5-0-21-1

11.1

Malinga to Morgan, FOUR, but it doesn't help! Not the loosener by any means from Malinga, but it's just the right length for Morgan to get underneath and crack down the ground for another boundary

England 95/2   EJG Morgan 47* (30b 4x4 3x6)   SL Malinga 1.1-0-7-0

17.3

Jayasuriya to Bopara, FOUR, there's the boundary England needed! Bopara picks up a leg-stump half-volley and gets a good connection to beat the deep midwicket fielder

England 125/5   RS Bopara 19* (21b 1x4)   ST Jayasuriya 2.3-0-15-1
