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

England v Sri Lanka

England won by 110 runs (D/L method)


Malinga to Cook, OUT, Cook's gone! An innocuous delivery, tailing down the leg-side, Cook goes for the leg glance but gets nothing more than a feather through to the keeper

AN Cook c †Sangakkara b Malinga 5 (9m 3b 1x4 0x6) SR: 166.66

England 6/1   C Kieswetter 1* (10b)   SL Malinga 1.1-0-6-1


Lakmal to Trott, OUT, gone this time! Top work from Lakmal, full, straight, and clumping Trott on the toe as he played around his pad

IJL Trott lbw b Lakmal 23 (29m 24b 5x4 0x6) SR: 95.83

England 53/2   C Kieswetter 22* (28b 1x4 1x6)   RAS Lakmal 3-0-19-1


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

England 109/3   C Kieswetter 52* (47b 3x4 2x6)   BMAJ Mendis 0.1-0-0-1


Randiv to Kieswetter, OUT, a slog-sweep, a top-edge, and a simple catch for short third man, running in. Lakmal - who didn't have the best time in the field during the Tests - is all smiles after holding onto that. England are scoring at a decent lick, but these wickets will keep Sri Lanka in the game

C Kieswetter c Lakmal b Randiv 61 (90m 56b 4x4 2x6) SR: 108.92

England 142/4   EJG Morgan 24* (15b 4x4)   S Randiv 1.1-0-15-1


Lakmal to Morgan, OUT, Lakmal's slower ball does for Morgan. Picked it too late but went through with a lofted drive, only succeeded in lifting it to long-off. Ends a dazzling little innings and a crucial strike for Sri Lanka

EJG Morgan c Kandamby b Lakmal 45 (34m 35b 6x4 0x6) SR: 128.57

England 175/5   IR Bell 9* (10b 1x4)   RAS Lakmal 5.1-0-28-2


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   TT Bresnan 0* (0b)   ST Jayasuriya 4.1-0-33-1


Malinga to Bresnan, OUT, gone this time! Bresnan tried to walk across his stumps and dink Malinga round the corner. He missed, it struck his back leg. It looked plumb on first viewing but replays showed it heading a long way down leg. Crucial little cameo though from Bresnan

TT Bresnan lbw b Malinga 23 (25m 14b 4x4 0x6) SR: 164.28

England 226/7   SCJ Broad 12* (17b)   SL Malinga 6.2-0-37-2


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   GP Swann 2* (2b)   SL Malinga 7-0-40-3
