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

Randiv to Bell, no run, this time Bell stays put, pushing to off


Randiv to Bell, 1 run, flicked into the leg side, and they take a quick single and Morgan's back on strike


Randiv to Bell, FOUR, the shot of a man in sublime form. Bell came forward then hopped back, cracking a cut right out of the middle of the bat to send the ball rolling away behind square

England 149/4   IR Bell 5* (3b 1x4)

Kulasekara to Bell, 1 run, Kulasekara nibbles one back in to Bell, the ball coming off the inner half of the bat and going to leg

England 151/4   IR Bell 6* (4b 1x4)

Malinga to Bell, no run, Malinga finds the edge of Bell's bat! But it's with one of his canny slower balls, and so the edge drops well short of Sangakkara


Malinga to Bell, 1 run, great follow-up, a searingly quick yorker that takes the bottom edge and flies to fine leg

England 154/4   IR Bell 7* (6b 1x4)

Randiv to Bell, no run, Randiv comes round the wicket to Bell, giving him no room to work with. Tapped back to the bowler


Randiv to Bell, 1 run, Bell turns round into a reverse sweep as Randiv approaches, he receives a full toss but it's clipped to short third man/short fine leg

England 159/4   IR Bell 8* (8b 1x4)

Jayasuriya to Bell, no run, this one is really flighted up by Jayasuriya, and Bell's drive is stopped by Dilshan at cover


Jayasuriya to Bell, 1 run, driven again by Bell, this time it's in the air but wide of a diving Dilshan. There's cover out in the deep

England 174/4   IR Bell 9* (10b 1x4)

Lakmal to Bell, 1 wide, fired full but down the leg side by Lakmal


Lakmal to Bell, no run, very full this time, reaching Bell about waist-high, Bell blocks and looks around to the square leg umpire looking for a no ball but it was marginal


Lakmal to Bell, no run, good, straight line from Lakmal leaving Bell nowhere to go


Lakmal to Bell, 2 runs, poor fielding turns one into a two, Kandamby running to, and straight past, the ball from long-on


Lakmal to Bell, no run, ah Bell has missed out here and he knows it. Full toss heading down the leg side but he couldn't get it away


Lakmal to Bell, 1 run, another full toss, the line though is straight, and all Bell can do is bunt a single down the ground

England 179/5   IR Bell 12* (15b 1x4)

Jayasuriya to Bell, OUT, Bell goes now! England stuttering. Jayasuriya celebrates and it was good bowling, took the pace off the ball and Bell shuffled around the crease before getting down to sweep. Missed it and was struck plumb in front

IR Bell lbw b Jayasuriya 12 (23m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

England 179/6   IR Bell 12 (16b 1x4)
