ICC World Twenty20 - 1st match, Group C

Sri Lanka v Zimbabwe

Sri Lanka won by 82 runs

0.1

Jarvis to Munaweera, FOUR, a gentle full toss first ball. Swinging away, but too full, and Munaweera opens the face to guide it past point, and with with the wind. So four off first ball in international cricket

0.2

Jarvis to Munaweera, no run, length ball now, outswinger, left alone

0.3

Jarvis to Munaweera, no run, bowls the inswinger this time, but starts to straight, and hits him on the pad when headed down leg

0.4

Jarvis to Munaweera, no run, outswinger. Nice shape, but starts going a little early. Munaweere watches it through to the keeper

0.5

Jarvis to Munaweera, no run, slower offcutter, 108ks, on a length outside off, and Muna defends watchfully

0.6

Jarvis to Munaweera, no run, wild swing and a miss. The dot balls showed here as he charged and backed away at the same time. Jarvis kept his line and bowled a full outswinger. Beats him just outside off

Sri Lanka 4/0   KM Jarvis 1-0-4-0

2.1

Jarvis to Dilshan, no run, quick inswinger, 137.4ks, beats Dilshan both with the pace and the movement the other way. Appeals for lbw, but it is headed down leg

2.2

Jarvis to Dilshan, 1 run, slower ball, 111ks, short of a length, turning in towards off, Dilshan gets a single off the bat and pad

2.3

Jarvis to Munaweera, 1 wide, bouncer, outside off, but it is too high, and is called both a wide and one for the over

2.3

Jarvis to Munaweera, FOUR, full, on the pads, he has chipped this straight down the ground, almost bisecting mid-off and mid-on. Good timing takes it for four

2.4

Jarvis to Munaweera, no run, lovely outswinger. Just short of a driving length, just outside off, then beats his drive

2.5

Jarvis to Munaweera, 2 runs, Munaweera is a thumper, he is all right. Another length ball, and he goes for a hit into the orbit. Not well timed at all, but it clears a valiant effort from Malcolm Waller running back from mid-on

2.6

Jarvis to Munaweera, 1 run, backs away to hit, gets an inside edge onto the pad and DIlshan completes a quick single with a dive as the ball rolls towards point

Sri Lanka 19/0   KM Jarvis 2-0-13-0

16.1

Jarvis to BMAJ Mendis, 2 runs, gives him the charge, hits this wide of deep square leg for a two

16.2

Jarvis to BMAJ Mendis, 1 run, full, on off, inside edge into the pad, and then through for a single to short third man

16.3

Jarvis to Sangakkara, 1 run, makes room, drives a full delivery to sweeper-cover, gets a single. Jarvis staying full and straight here

16.4

Jarvis to BMAJ Mendis, 4 byes, how unfortunate is that. Lovely yorker, on leg, beats his bat, seems to have hit a foot hole, and then deviated away for four byes

16.5

Jarvis to BMAJ Mendis, 1 run, misses the yorker, but errs on the fuller side, and concedes just a single to long-on

16.6

Jarvis to Sangakkara, 1 run, moves well across the stumps, but can't deviate Jarvis from his full and straight deliveries. Manages to get the bat down in time, and takes a single off the cue end

Sri Lanka 139/3   KM Jarvis 3-0-19-0

18.1

Jarvis to BMAJ Mendis, 5 leg byes, slower ball, beats him, but as they steal a leg-bye, Jarvis lets go a wild throw for four overthrows. There was no way he was getting Sanga out. Zimbabwe - I don't believe I am saying this - have been ordinary in the field

18.2

Jarvis to Sangakkara, FOUR, top shot from Sanga. He first moves across, then backs away, finds he has got a half-volley on off, and drives it over point with an open face. Almost carries all the way for six

18.3

Jarvis to Sangakkara, (no ball) 1 run, full toss, highish, the umpires might be interested in it. It's called a no-ball for a high full toss. Sanga gets a single to long-on

18.3

Jarvis to BMAJ Mendis, 2 runs, full, straight, driven to long-off for one. Oh wait. Another overthrow. This is ridiculous. Not a bad throw. Jarvis just fails to collect it

18.4

Jarvis to BMAJ Mendis, 2 runs, full, straight, flicked away, and midwicket dives over the ball, and they come back for another two

18.5

Jarvis to BMAJ Mendis, 1 run, low full toss, flicked away, and Ervine makes a lovely diving save at square leg

18.6

Jarvis to Sangakkara, 1 run, full toss, swinging into him, cramps him up, concedes just the single to long-on

Sri Lanka 167/3   KM Jarvis 4-0-31-0
