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

England v Sri Lanka

England won by 110 runs (D/L method)

16.1

Mendis to Pietersen, OUT, and he's got him with his first ball! Terrible ball, a rank long-hop, but KP leaned back and pulled straight into the hands of Dilshan at midwicket, and Sri Lanka are delighted. The batsmen had started to tick along quite nicely, and this will ease Sri Lanka's nerves ... although, now they'll have Eoin Morgan to deal with

KP Pietersen c Dilshan b Mendis 26 (30m 24b 3x4 0x6) SR: 108.33

16.2

Mendis to Morgan, no run, was this the wrong 'un? Definitely didn't come back in to Morgan as he lunged out in defence

16.3

Mendis to Morgan, no run, immediately the reverse sweep is in use, but he picks out short third man

16.4

Mendis to Morgan, FOUR, almost another wicket! It was another filthy long-hop, Morgan tried to smack it out of the park but looked to have picked out Mathew at deep midwicket ... the fielder couldn't quite judge the catch though, coming forward and then stopping and ultimately diving forward in vain as the ball bounced in front of him. Close!

16.5

Mendis to Morgan, no run, driven to cover

16.6

Mendis to Morgan, FOUR, slapped hard to the cover boundary! The bottom hand powers Morgan's drive, but his power and placement are perfect

England 117/3   BMAJ Mendis 1-0-8-1

18.1

Mendis to Kieswetter, 1 run, full on off stump, driven to long-off

18.2

Mendis to Morgan, FOUR, there's a man at short third man to stop Morgan's reverse sweep, but this has sailed right over his head! Deliberately hit in the air by Morgan, great technique

18.3

Mendis to Morgan, FOUR, Mendis is all over the place here, attempting another googly but it bounces halfway down the track and is smashed to deep midwicket

18.4

Mendis to Morgan, no run, flat on off stump, Morgan gives himself room but toe-ends the cut

18.5

Mendis to Morgan, 1 run, a controlled chip is aimed towards long-off, bouncing well in front of the fielder

18.6

Mendis to Kieswetter, no run, fired full and fast at Kieswetter's toes. His bat is late in coming down but he keeps it out

England 138/3   BMAJ Mendis 2-0-18-1
