Sri Lanka tour of England, 2006 / Commentary

NatWest Series [Sri Lanka in England] - 2nd match

England v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 46 runs

16.1

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, 1 wide, massive appeal from Geraint Jones behind the stumps, but Darrell Hair is unfooled

16.1

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run

16.2

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run

16.3

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run, tighter line so far. Maybe delaying the Powerplay will pay off

16.4

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, 1 run, worked into space on the off side

16.5

Dalrymple to Jayawardene, 1 run, Sri Lanka content to deal in singles, and so too are England

16.6

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run, a dot ball to finish a good first over

Sri Lanka 87/1   JWM Dalrymple 1-0-3-0

18.1

Dalrymple to Jayawardene, 1 run

18.2

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, 1 wide, another near-miss down the leg side. Jones didn't bother appealing for this one

18.2

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run

18.3

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run

18.4

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, 1 run, and more of the same. Dalrymple is doing a good job here for England

18.5

Dalrymple to Jayawardene, no run, slower delivery, Jayawardene watched and waited and waited, and still mistimed it

18.6

Dalrymple to Jayawardene, 2 runs, pushed into space on the off side this time, but the end of a tight over.

Sri Lanka 102/1   JWM Dalrymple 2-0-8-0

20.1

Dalrymple to Jayawardene, 1 run, single down the ground, enlivened as bowler and non striker collide

20.2

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, 1 run

20.3

Dalrymple to Jayawardene, 1 run, another ball, another chip down the ground for a single. This over is becoming formulaic

20.4

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run

20.5

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, 1 run

20.6

Dalrymple to Jayawardene, 1 wide, yet another wide down the leg

Dalrymple to Jayawardene, no run

26.3

Dalrymple to Jayawardene, 1 run

26.4

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, 4 byes, attempted reverse sweep but he missed it, Jones missed it, and the ball trundled to the boundary. It should have been called a wide as well.

26.5

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run

26.6

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, 1 wide, another wide. Unacceptable.

26.6

Dalrymple to Jayawardene, 1 run

28.3

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run

28.6

Dalrymple to Jayawardene, 1 run

Sri Lanka 177/1   JWM Dalrymple 5-0-20-0

Sri Lanka 192/1   JWM Dalrymple 6-0-22-0

32.1

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, OUT, good grief, a wicket! Jayasuriya pushed off the back foot, Jayawardene looked for a single, sent back, slipped, Dalrymple fielded and whipped off the bails

DPMD Jayawardene run out 66 (101m 62b 5x4 1x6) SR: 106.45

32.2

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run

32.3

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run, massive appeal as Jayasuriya misses an attempted reverse sweep. Always going wide, but not the ideal moment for such a shot

32.4

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, 2 runs

32.5

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, 1 run

32.6

Dalrymple to Sangakkara, no run

Sri Lanka 197/2   JWM Dalrymple 7-0-25-0

34.1

Dalrymple to Sangakkara, 1 run

34.2

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run, oooh ... nearly the breakthrough for England, as Jayasuriya chips into the leg side, but a diving KP can't quite get his fingers under the ball. And before the TV replays are called for, he quickly indicates the ball didn't carry. Super sportsmanship there

34.3

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run

34.4

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run

34.5

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run

34.6

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run

Sri Lanka 206/2   JWM Dalrymple 8-0-26-0

36.1

Dalrymple to Sangakkara, FOUR, aggressive approach from Sangakkara, down the track and lofted impeccably straight for a one-bounce four

36.2

Dalrymple to Sangakkara, 1 run

36.3

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run, stuck in the nervous nineties, and being made to work for his hundred

36.4

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run, injudicious sweep - he's not enjoying this tight line

36.5

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run

36.6

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, 1 run

Sri Lanka 215/2   JWM Dalrymple 9-0-32-0

38.1

Dalrymple to Sangakkara, 2 runs, Chipped to long-off

38.2

Dalrymple to Sangakkara, no run

38.3

Dalrymple to Sangakkara, SIX, "Helloooo massive!" as someone, I forget who, once put it. Down the ground and clattered into the upper tiers of the pavilion

38.4

Dalrymple to Sangakkara, 1 run

38.5

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, no run

38.6

Dalrymple to Jayasuriya, FOUR, down the pitch and smearted through the covers. The end of an expensive final over for Dalrymple, with 13 coming from it to dent his figures

Sri Lanka 232/2   JWM Dalrymple 10-0-45-0
