NatWest Series [Sri Lanka in England] - 1st ODI

England v Sri Lanka

England won by 110 runs (D/L method)

26.2

Jayasuriya to Broad, no run, Broad is very careful in defence first delivery. Both batsmen on zero so there'll be no great charge in the closing overs

26.3

Jayasuriya to Broad, 1 run, Broad often chips in the air in this area - midwicket - just lifting it off his pads

26.6

Jayasuriya to Broad, no run, Broad digs out a low-slung yorker to end a good over for Sri Lanka

England 183/6   SCJ Broad 1* (3b)

27.4

Randiv to Broad, no run, no leverage for Broad to work with and he can only push back to the bowler

27.5

Randiv to Broad, 1 run, unable to drive down the ground Broad instead reverts to a fine sweep shot but only earns him one

England 185/6   SCJ Broad 2* (5b)

28.1

Jayasuriya to Broad, 1 run, really short ball, wide too, but Broad's cut finds deep point. The boundaries have dried up

28.3

Jayasuriya to Broad, 1 wide, wide arrowed down the leg side

28.3

Jayasuriya to Broad, no run, Broad tries to heave a sweep from outside off but can't time it

28.4

Jayasuriya to Broad, 1 wide, another wide sliding down the leg side

28.4

Jayasuriya to Broad, 2 runs, the lack of timing on this off-side slap allows Broad to get a couple out to deep cover

28.5

Jayasuriya to Broad, 2 runs, driven hard back at the bowler, who couldn't collect cleanly, and ended up directing it wide of the fielder running in from mid-off and allowing Broad a second

28.6

Jayasuriya to Broad, 1 run, heaved into the leg side, without timing or power

England 194/6   SCJ Broad 8* (10b)

29.1

Malinga to Broad, no run, how do you play that!? Low-slung, perfectly-placed yorker. Reversing away too. Broad prodded and missed

29.2

Malinga to Broad, 1 run, again Broad has no clue, but you can't blame him really. This is a low full toss but swings away late and finds an outside edge that rushes to point

29.4

Malinga to Broad, 4 leg byes, that will do nicely for England! Malinga just gets his line a fraction wrong and it flicks the pads and speeds down, past short fine leg, to the boundary

29.5

Malinga to Broad, 1 run, Malinga is back on the right line this time and Broad prods a single to Dilshan at short midwicket. Dilshan rarely misses and it's lucky for Broad he did

England 201/6   SCJ Broad 10* (14b)

30.1

Lakmal to Broad, 1 run, high full toss outside off stump is sliced to third man

30.6

Lakmal to Broad, 1 run, another full toss, pressure is a horrible thing, fortunately for the bowler Broad couldn't take full toll and swung it to deep cover

England 225/6   SCJ Broad 12* (16b)

31.1

Malinga to Broad, 1 bye, Malinga finds an ideal outswinging yorker past Broad's blade but the batsman hurry through for a bye

31.4

Malinga to Broad, 1 run, very careful drive to cover and another scampered single

31.6

Malinga to Broad, OUT, Broad falls on the last ball, not sure he timed a single delivery that innings. Here he tries to work to leg and a leading edge finds cover

SCJ Broad c Kandamby b Malinga 13 (22m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 68.42

England 229/8   SCJ Broad 13 (19b)
