Sri Lanka tour of England, 4th ODI: England v Sri Lanka at Manchester, Jun 28, 2006
Sri Lanka won by 33 runs
28 June 2006 (50-over match)

Harmison to Jayasuriya, OUT, Well I never. Short and wide outside off stump, slashed hard by Jayasuriya straight to the man two yards in on the deep cover boundary who barely had to move. Inspired field placing.

ST Jayasuriya c Dalrymple b Harmison 14 (21m 20b 3x4 0x6) SR: 70.00

Sri Lanka 23/1   WU Tharanga 3* (9b)   SJ Harmison 2.5-0-9-1

Dalrymple to Tharanga, OUT, Tharanga gives himself room and takes a few steps on the charge, only to find Solanki at extra-cover who takes a straightforward catch. A badly needed breakthrough for England.

WU Tharanga c Solanki b Dalrymple 60 (105m 80b 5x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Sri Lanka 160/2   DPMD Jayawardene 69* (49b 6x4)   JWM Dalrymple 4.5-0-25-1

Harmison to Sangakkara, OUT, around the wicket, steep bounce and it’s too good for Sangakkara who flashes high and hard and the ball arcs through to Jones.

KC Sangakkara c †Jones b Harmison 7 (17m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 46.66

Sri Lanka 173/3   DPMD Jayawardene 73* (56b 6x4)   SJ Harmison 7.2-0-36-2

Plunkett to Dilshan, OUT, straight, true and Plunkett gets the reward – the off-stump is pegged back. Dilshan was trying to make room for himself.

TM Dilshan b Plunkett 7 (37m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 63.63

Sri Lanka 196/4   DPMD Jayawardene 86* (71b 7x4)   LE Plunkett 5.4-0-40-1

Bell to Arnold, OUT, that's the end of that! Arnold attempts another cheeky dab and this time he ends up with a faint edge, Jones holds on well to a fairly hard chance - Sri Lanka five down

RP Arnold c †Jones b Bell 7 (10m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 214/5   DPMD Jayawardene 96* (81b 8x4)   IR Bell 1.3-0-8-1

Dalrymple to Jayawardene, OUT, simplest return catch popped up and there’s no mistake made by the bowler who snaffles the leading edge. Jayawardene’s cross with himself, but he needn’t be – that’s been a lovely innings and he’s left his team in a strong position to hit the 300-mark.

DPMD Jayawardene c & b Dalrymple 100 (155m 83b 9x4 0x6) SR: 120.48

Sri Lanka 220/6   MF Maharoof 2* (5b)   JWM Dalrymple 6.4-0-34-2

Plunkett to Vaas, OUT, shaped to run the ball towards third man, possibly bounced a bit more than he expected, and a thickish edge straight to Jones

WPUJC Vaas c †Jones b Plunkett 7 (23m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 46.66

Sri Lanka 250/7   MF Maharoof 21* (33b 1x4)   LE Plunkett 7.5-0-53-2
