Sri Lanka tour of England and Scotland, 1st ODI: England v Sri Lanka at The Oval, Jun 28, 2011
England won by 110 runs (D/L method)
28 June 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Anderson to Dilshan, OUT, what a slice of luck for Anderson, shoved a length ball down the leg side but Dilshan's flick flew down to Bresnan who ran in to take the catch. So both captains depart to leg-side strangles, different styles admittedly

TM Dilshan c Bresnan b Anderson 1 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 2/1   ST Jayasuriya 1* (1b)   JM Anderson 0.3-0-2-1

Bresnan to Jayasuriya, OUT, he's gone! The shot that brought him so many of his 13,430 runs in one-day cricket - a scything cut - but this time it's gone straight into the hands of Morgan at point. No grand finish for Sanath, but he leaves the field to warm applause from the large crowd. Goodbye to a Sri Lankan legend.

ST Jayasuriya c Morgan b Bresnan 2 (7m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 6/2   DPMD Jayawardene 2* (4b)   TT Bresnan 0.4-0-2-1

Anderson to Jayawardene, OUT, there's some swing! This might be the fullest ball Anderson has bowled today, and it's wobbled appreciably back in to beat the inside edge and ping Jayawardene's left pad ... the finger goes up, that's out!

DPMD Jayawardene lbw b Anderson 5 (17m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 45.45

Sri Lanka 14/3   KC Sangakkara 4* (9b 1x4)   JM Anderson 2.2-0-6-2

Anderson to Sangakkara, OUT, there goes another one! Full again from Anderson, a touch of swing and Sangakkara is too early into a straight drive, popping the ball straight back to the bowler, who holds the catch in his follow through. Two wickets in the over for Anderson, and Sri Lanka are tottering now.

KC Sangakkara c & b Anderson 4 (13m 10b 1x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Sri Lanka 15/4   SHT Kandamby 1* (2b)   JM Anderson 2.5-0-7-3

Dernbach to Mathews, OUT, what a catch! Dernbach dug one in short and Mathews was quickly into the pull, but hit the ball in the air towards midwicket where Anderson went airborne, leaping to his right to complete the dismissal. Dernbach's first wicket in ODIs, and it's snapped what was just beginning to turn into a fightback from Sri Lanka

AD Mathews c Anderson b Dernbach 16 (29m 16b 3x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 40/5   SHT Kandamby 8* (26b)   JW Dernbach 1.3-0-7-1

Swann to Mendis, OUT, another one down. This is ending in a hurry. Mendis edges down the wicket and chips a catch to short midwicket. Very easy indeed

BMAJ Mendis c Anderson b Swann 9 (18m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Sri Lanka 57/6   SHT Kandamby 16* (41b 1x4)   GP Swann 1.3-0-5-1

Anderson to Kulasekara, OUT, excellent work from Anderson. Two sharp short balls followed by a sucker full one, and with Kulasekara hanging back, he spoons it tamely to mid-on where Cook dives forward to take a good catch

KMDN Kulasekara c Cook b Anderson 5 (11m 14b 0x4 0x6) SR: 35.71

Sri Lanka 65/7   SHT Kandamby 18* (46b 1x4)   JM Anderson 4.4-0-16-4

Dernbach to Kandamby, OUT, Dernbach replaces Anderson and strikes straight away! Short ball rushes onto Kandamby and the pull shot gets high on the bat and loops to mid-on. Dernbach celebrates with a Freddie-style arms-aloft pose, make of that what you will

SHT Kandamby c Broad b Dernbach 19 (75m 48b 1x4 0x6) SR: 39.58

Sri Lanka 69/8   S Randiv 2* (7b)   JW Dernbach 3.1-0-11-2

Swann to Malinga, OUT, gone, finally. Malinga this time can't land one of his big leg-side clumps, instead a bit of drift finds a top edge that loops high towards point where Bopara holds the chance

SL Malinga c sub (RS Bopara) b Swann 26 (23m 15b 4x4 1x6) SR: 173.33

Sri Lanka 121/9   S Randiv 24* (24b 3x4)   GP Swann 4.3-0-18-2

Swann to Randiv, OUT, that's it! Kieswetter finishes things off with a swift stumping as Randiv gropes and misses outside off stump

S Randiv st †Kieswetter b Swann 24 (36m 27b 3x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

Sri Lanka 121/10   RAS Lakmal 0* (0b)   GP Swann 5-0-18-3
