28 June 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Jayasuriya to Bresnan, 2 runs, Bresnan gets deep into his crease to clunk one straight down the ground where Jeevan Mendis does well to save after slipping terribly and ending up in a heap


Jayasuriya to Bresnan, 1 run, this time it's pushed into space for a sharp single

England 183/6   TT Bresnan 3* (2b)

Randiv to Bresnan, no run, Bresnan hangs back and waits on this before poking to the off side


Randiv to Bresnan, no run, the demon lack of spin does for Bresnan on the outside edge


Randiv to Bresnan, 1 run, flat, back of a length offspin from around the wicket it proving hard to get away. Bresnan nudges a single to leg


Randiv to Bresnan, no run, swing and miss outside off. These darts are just sliding off the pitch and Bresnan is unable to get hold of it

England 185/6   TT Bresnan 4* (6b)

Jayasuriya to Bresnan, 1 run, Bresnan shimmies down before clumping along the ground to long-off

England 187/6   TT Bresnan 5* (7b)

Malinga to Bresnan, 1 run, Bresnan's turn this time to play and miss at a Malinga yorker. Swings in late towards the toes but passes through to the keeper. England scramble a bye


Malinga to Bresnan, FOUR, suddenly it's a good over for England. Malinga gets his length and line wrong and Bresnan swings a leg-side full toss to the square leg boundary

England 205/6   TT Bresnan 10* (9b 1x4)

Lakmal to Bresnan, 5 wides, oh dear, Lakmal has got this all wrong. Very full but miles down the leg side. England back in business now


Lakmal to Bresnan, FOUR, four more! Bresnan's heave to cow corner pays off. Not a great delivery, Lakmal is under pressure here


Lakmal to Bresnan, FOUR, and another! Horrid luck for the bowler this time. Another full toss, Bresnan was aiming cow corner but found an inside edge that bounced close to the stumps and down to the fine leg rope


Lakmal to Bresnan, FOUR, and another! Bresnan is having a dream return for England! Lakmal unable to hit the pitch and Bresnan just eases his arms through it, pinging it down to deep square


Lakmal to Bresnan, 1 run, finally some relief for Lakmal and Sri Lanka. Bresnan hit it hard but straight to deep cover

England 224/6   TT Bresnan 23* (13b 4x4)

Malinga to Bresnan, OUT, gone this time! Bresnan tried to walk across his stumps and dink Malinga round the corner. He missed, it struck his back leg. It looked plumb on first viewing but replays showed it heading a long way down leg. Crucial little cameo though from Bresnan

TT Bresnan lbw b Malinga 23 (25m 14b 4x4 0x6) SR: 164.28

England 226/7   TT Bresnan 23 (14b 4x4)
