ICC Champions Trophy - 8th match, Group A

13 June 2013 - day/night match (50-over match)

Anderson to Perera, OUT, goes big *shuts eyes* - oh, he's been caught at mid-on! Perera tried to execute the pick-up off a length over long-on, looked like he'd nailed it but the ball actually came off the toe of the bat and looped rather forlornly to Bopara, who crouched under it for a safe take and England's first wicket

MDKJ Perera c Bopara b Anderson 6 (10m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 54.54

Sri Lanka 10/1   TM Dilshan 4* (3b 1x4)   JM Anderson 1.2-0-5-1

Swann to Dilshan, OUT, skip down the wicket and finds long on that is pretty silly you have to say, a thick inside edge, nowhere near enough contact on the stroke and Dilshan is gone. Three cheap overs from England, Dilshan has got frustrated, tried to take Swann into the stands and perished

TM Dilshan c Root b Swann 44 (86m 56b 3x4 1x6) SR: 78.57

Sri Lanka 102/2   KC Sangakkara 49* (58b 5x4)   GP Swann 2.5-0-8-1

Anderson to Jayawardene, OUT, skips across to hooks but only manages to pick out deep square leg! England have the breakthrough they desperately needed, Anderson the bowler, as so often it is! The ball was short and outside the line of off, Jayawardene moved to his right but couldn't keep the shot down, Bairstow plunging forward to take a good catch

DPMD Jayawardene c sub (JM Bairstow) b Anderson 42 (62m 43b 3x4 1x6) SR: 97.67

Sri Lanka 187/3   KC Sangakkara 90* (102b 8x4)   JM Anderson 6.2-0-24-2
