28 June 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)
13.1

Jayasuriya to Kieswetter, 1 run, Sanath comes round the stumps and lobs one down on middle and leg, driven to mid-off

13.2

Jayasuriya to Pietersen, 1 run, Pietersen hangs back and nudges to long on for an easy single

13.3

Jayasuriya to Kieswetter, 1 run, Kieswetter jumps out and swipes down to long-on, not timed but the intent was clear

13.4

Jayasuriya to Pietersen, 1 run, flicked into the leg side, midwicket dives but can only parry the ball and they trot through for a single

13.5

Jayasuriya to Kieswetter, 2 runs, again the fielding is not quite watertight, this time it's mid-off who does enough to get to the ball but can't stop it cleanly. That was driven hard though

13.6

Jayasuriya to Kieswetter, FOUR, swept to fine leg! There's a short boundary down there and he's picked it out perfectly

England 89/2   ST Jayasuriya 1-0-10-0
15.1

Jayasuriya to Pietersen, 1 run, pushed out to wide long-off for a single

15.2

Jayasuriya to Kieswetter, 1 run, Kieswetter follows suit, off the front foot this time

15.3

Jayasuriya to Pietersen, 1 run, a little too short from Jayasuriya, but the ball doesn't really get up and KP has to jab down at it. Still, gets enough of a connection to pick up a single

15.4

Jayasuriya to Kieswetter, 1 run, driven down to long-off

15.5

Jayasuriya to Pietersen, no run, KP drives powerfully down the ground ... or does he? Kieswetter hopped to let the ball through his legs but left his bat grounded, the ball rebounded off the bat and stopped the run

15.6

Jayasuriya to Pietersen, 1 run, driven hard down to long-off for another single

England 109/2   ST Jayasuriya 2-0-15-0
17.1

Jayasuriya to Kieswetter, FOUR, a rare deft touch from the bat of Craig Kieswetter as he waits until the very last moment and glides a late cut down to the third man boundary

17.2

Jayasuriya to Kieswetter, no run, chopped down to backward point

17.3

Jayasuriya to Kieswetter, 1 run, Jayasuriya targets the pads, and Kieswetter tucks him to leg for a single

17.4

Jayasuriya to Morgan, 3 runs, and now Morgan targets the third man boundary, slicing a late cut down to that region. Some tag-team fielding by the rope ensures there's no boundary

17.5

Jayasuriya to Kieswetter, 1 run, driven hard to Jayasuriya's left, he creaks across but can't get there in time

17.6

Jayasuriya to Morgan, 2 runs, a touch of width offered, Morgan stays back and bends his knees to cut to deep backward point

England 128/3   ST Jayasuriya 3-0-26-0
24.1

Jayasuriya to Morgan, 2 runs, long-hop to start, but the ball doesn't bounce much and Morgan has to jab down at it ... but still picks up two to midwicket

24.2

Jayasuriya to Morgan, 2 runs, fired at the pads from round the wicket, Morgan glances to the right of fine leg and sprints back for two more

24.3

Jayasuriya to Morgan, 1 run, bunted down to long-on for one

24.4

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

24.5

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

24.6

Jayasuriya to Morgan, 1 run, slapped out to deep cover off the back foot

England 175/4   ST Jayasuriya 4-0-33-0
26.1

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

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

26.4

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

26.5

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

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   ST Jayasuriya 5-0-37-1
28.1

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

28.2

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

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   ST Jayasuriya 6-0-46-1
