ICC World Twenty20 - 1st match, Group C

Sri Lanka v Zimbabwe

Sri Lanka won by 82 runs

6.3

Utseya to Munaweera, OUT, an action-filled delivery. Muna tries to sweep a full and straight delivery, and just about manages to get bat on it. He takes off despite hitting it straight to short fine leg. Dilshan sends him back, and he loses his bat while turning back. And not having the bat in his hand has cost him a bit of reach and also his wicket

EMDY Munaweera run out 17 (33m 19b 3x4 0x6) SR: 89.47

Sri Lanka 54/1   TM Dilshan 30* (20b 5x4)   P Utseya 1.3-0-9-0

9.5

Cremer to Dilshan, OUT, Cremer has come back well from that wicket off a no-ball with a quick delivery. Dilshan tries to cut it, there seems to be a noise, and Zimbabwe are pretty certain they have Dilshan caught at the wicket. The umpire takes his time before raising the wicket, and neither batsman looks happy with the decision

TM Dilshan c †Taylor b Cremer 39 (49m 28b 5x4 0x6) SR: 139.28

Sri Lanka 75/2   DPMD Jayawardene 11* (13b 1x4)   AG Cremer 1.5-0-9-1

11.3

Cremer to Sangakkara, 1 run, OUT, that's a risky second. Cut away to deep point, and they pause a moment before starting the second. When they do decide to take it, they decide to take the second on the throw. The throw follows Jayawardene at non-striker's end, and he is out comfortably. That's Waller's throw. Some redemption for him

DPMD Jayawardene run out 13 (22m 18b 1x4 0x6) SR: 72.22

Sri Lanka 82/3   KC Sangakkara 5* (5b)   AG Cremer 2.3-0-12-1

19.4

Mpofu to Sangakkara, 1 run, OUT, full and wide, hit to deep cover, and Sanga has run himself out trying a near-impossible second, but he was possibly taking a chance against sloppy what has been sloppy Zimbabwean fielding

KC Sangakkara run out 44 (48m 26b 2x4 1x6) SR: 169.23

Sri Lanka 176/4   BMAJ Mendis 43* (30b 4x4 1x6)   CB Mpofu 3.4-0-43-0
