Sri Lanka tour of England and Ireland, 4th ODI: England v Sri Lanka at Lord's, May 31, 2014
Sri Lanka won by 7 runs
Played at Lord's, London
31 May 2014 (50-over match)

Gurney to Perera, OUT, back of a length, two feet outside off, Perera goes to pull and is late on the stroke, getting a toe-end to Jordan at slip who takes a nice catch, big wicket for England that. Funny dismissal, Perera deciding too late to pull, didn't get in the right position to do so and got a thick edge that went low to Jordan's left, he dived and took a smart catch

MDKJ Perera c Jordan b Gurney 19 (19m 15b 2x4 1x6) SR: 126.66

Sri Lanka 26/1   TM Dilshan 6* (16b)   HF Gurney 2.1-0-12-1

Anderson to Dilshan, OUT, full and straight and bowled him! Dilshan had got across his stumps and attempted to ramp the ball to fine leg - though there was a fielder there - missed again and the ball flicked the back pad before removing leg stump

TM Dilshan b Anderson 71 (142m 109b 5x4 0x6) SR: 65.13

Sri Lanka 198/2   KC Sangakkara 96* (90b 13x4)   JM Anderson 7.4-1-43-1

Gurney to Jayawardene, OUT, length just outside off, Jayawardene tries to clear mid-off and doesn't, easy catch for Anderson down at knee height. Jayawardene didn't get going at all and this was totally mistimed, off high on the bat I think and looped it straight to Anderson

DPMD Jayawardene c Anderson b Gurney 7 (20m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 217/3   KC Sangakkara 107* (99b 14x4)   HF Gurney 6.3-2-19-2

Tredwell to Sangakkara, OUT, floated up, draws Sangakkara down the wicket, he doesn't get to the pitch of the ball, swings to the off side, misses and Buttler whips off the bails for a very easy stumping. Nice bit of bowling from Tredwell and ends a super innings that has put Sri Lanka in a very nice position

KC Sangakkara st †Buttler b Tredwell 112 (156m 104b 14x4 0x6) SR: 107.69

Sri Lanka 233/4   AD Mathews 11* (11b 2x4)   JC Tredwell 9.1-0-38-1

Anderson to Thirimanne, OUT, short, slower-ball, pulled without timing and Ballance swoops at short long leg to take the catch or has he? The fielder is unsure so we go upstairs and the replays almost always rule out these catches even if they look fine to the naked eye. It would appear Ballance got a right-hand under this, although it was a bit of a messy take. I reckon he's got this but will the third umpire be able to tell conclusively? Perhaps not. But whatdoyaknow, he's given it out! Important wicket because Thirimanne was striking it quite nicely

HDRL Thirimanne c Ballance b Anderson 16 (26m 14b 2x4 0x6) SR: 114.28

Sri Lanka 261/5   AD Mathews 19* (23b 2x4)   JM Anderson 9.2-1-54-2

Jordan to Mathews, OUT, step to leg, Jordan follows him, Mathews is cramped and tries to swing over the leg side, totally miscues it straight up in the air and Anderson pouches the catch taking a couple of steps back at mid-on. Handy little innings from Mathews, without the explosion that Sri Lanka required for a really intimidating total

AD Mathews c Anderson b Jordan 30 (50m 30b 4x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 279/6   SMA Priyanjan 6* (4b)   CJ Jordan 9.1-0-58-1

Jordan to Kulasekara, OUT, excellent yorker and knocks out leg stump. Kulasekara nowhere near it, he stepped to leg again, Jordan fired it right in at the stumps and cannoned the base of leg, England continue to take wickets

KMDN Kulasekara b Jordan 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 280/7   SMA Priyanjan 7* (5b)   CJ Jordan 9.4-0-59-2

Gurney to Priyanjan, OUT, another low full toss and swung hard at but gets a wild outside edge that goes high but not long enough and Morgan takes the catch running back a few yards from point, a solid catch taken easily in the end, total miscue from the batsman

SMA Priyanjan c Morgan b Gurney 9 (20m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 128.57

Sri Lanka 292/8   SMSM Senanayake 8* (3b 1x6)   HF Gurney 9.3-2-47-3

Gurney to Senanayake, OUT, another full toss but this is another miscued swing aiming down the ground, off high on the bat, and straight to Cook coming in at mid-on who claims a solid catch

SMSM Senanayake c Cook b Gurney 12 (8m 5b 1x4 1x6) SR: 240.00

Sri Lanka 296/9   BAW Mendis 0* (0b)   HF Gurney 9.5-2-51-4
