ICC World Twenty20 - 13th match, Group 1

Sri Lanka v New Zealand

Match tied (Sri Lanka won the one-over eliminator)

Karl: "Perhaps Brendon M had a word in his mate Hesson's ear but there is no way Nathan M should have come out in front of James Franklin."

The crowd has built up nicely and the atmosphere at the start of Sri Lanka's chase is a lively one. Mahela Jayawardene and Tillakaratne Dilshan are opening. Nathan McCullum to start with spin from round the wicket.

TM Dilshan    31* (13b 3x4 2x6)      KD Mills    2-0-15-0

Madhu, our stats man, says: "The score of 62 is the fifth-highest at the end of five overs in World T20 games. The highest is West Indies' 71 against Australia at Tha Oval in 2009."

Oram from over the wicket ...

5.1

Oram to Jayawardene, 1 run, Mahela makes room and dabs the length ball to third man

Doug: "When are we going to get a close match? T20 can be a boring game because the first few overs of the second innings set a pattern for the game which is seldom broken. Sri Lanka have already won after 5 overs #battingexhibition."

5.2

Oram to Dilshan, 1 run, good length outside off, Dilshan goes back and cuts to point

5.3

Oram to Jayawardene, no run, for once Mahela mis-times the drive, hitting it uppishly but well short of extra cover

Mark: "This is not looking good for NZ and they have made some strange batting and bowling choices this tournament. It's early days but I have a lot of misgivings about our captain/coach combination. We have an inexperienced captain with a meticulous planner/theorist coach but nobody who seems to have an instinct for the game and can adapt to rapidly changing situations."

Vettori's got the ball, bowling from round the wicket, with a moustache.

6.1

Vettori to Dilshan, 1 run, played on the leg side for a single

6.2

Vettori to Jayawardene, FOUR, Mahela gets down on one knee and uses the angle and pace into him to sweep firmly to the long leg boundary. He got his pad outside off stump to play that shot

6.4

Vettori to Dilshan, no run, played back to the bowler

DPMD Jayawardene    40* (24b 2x4 3x6)      DL Vettori    1-0-8-0
TM Dilshan    35* (18b 3x4 2x6)      JDP Oram    1-0-6-0

Matt: "@Doug Please do not use #hashtags on here, it is about as inappropriate as Nathan McCullum opening the bowling."

7.1

Oram to Jayawardene, FOUR, short of a length outside off, Mahela is perfectly balanced as he watches the ball all the way and dabs it late to the third man boundary, he placed it so fine

7.2

Oram to Jayawardene, OUT, he's been caught at fine leg! Mahela tried to pull a ball that was a bit too full and he top edged it to Vettori, who ran forward and to his right to take the catch

DPMD Jayawardene c Vettori b Oram 44 (32m 26b 3x4 3x6) SR: 169.23

That wicket has come against the run of play. Mahela's gone after helping Sri Lanka to an explosive start.

Sangakkara is the new batsman.

7.3

Oram to Dilshan, no run, Oram appeals for lbw but that's going down leg, Dilshan missed the flick

7.4

7.5

Oram to Dilshan, 1 run, once again Dilshan opens the face to play the short of a length ball towards third man

7.6

Oram to Sangakkara, no run, Sangakkara tries to drive through cover but mis-times it towards the bowler

Time for me to hand over the commentary to Alex Winter.

End of over 8 (9 runs) Sri Lanka 85/1 (90 runs required from 12 overs, RR: 10.62, RRR: 7.50)
KC Sangakkara    0* (1b)      JDP Oram    2-0-15-1
TM Dilshan    40* (21b 4x4 2x6)      DL Vettori    1-0-8-0

Cheers George, I would be surprised if New Zealand can contain Sri Lanka here, they don't have the bowling in my opinion...

8.1

Vettori to Dilshan, 1 run, off stump, driven down to long off

8.2

Vettori to Sangakkara, no run, leg stump line, tickled to midwicket

8.3

8.4

Vettori to Dilshan, 1 run, played with the angle past square leg with a flick

8.5

Vettori to Sangakkara, no run, a step down, dropped in shorter, patted back towards the bowler and it nearly carries to the bowler, not quite

8.6

Vettori to Sangakkara, FOUR, a step down again and this time nails it over midwicket, picked up very wel

The spinners don't do enough for me and the seamers have neither the pace nor variations to trouble good line ups...

End of over 9 (7 runs) Sri Lanka 92/1 (83 runs required from 11 overs, RR: 10.22, RRR: 7.54)
KC Sangakkara    5* (5b 1x4)      DL Vettori    2-0-15-0

1,000 runs in T20 internationals now for Dilshan...

9.4

Oram to Sangakkara, no run, sliding across the left-hander, Sangakkara tries to stay in the crease and square drive, misses

9.5

Oram to Sangakkara, FOUR, terrible bowling, short and Sangakkara rocks back and slaps it to the backward square fence

Jacob Oram, quite frankly, I don't know why he's in the team...

9.6

Oram to Sangakkara, FOUR, another short one and slapped to the midwicket fence this time

Easy-paced bowling on the wrong length being severely punished...

End of over 10 (11 runs) Sri Lanka 103/1 (72 runs required from 60 balls, RR: 10.30, RRR: 7.20)

10.4

Vettori to Dilshan, 1 run, rolled down to long off, no need for risks

TM Dilshan    48* (28b 4x4 2x6)      JDP Oram    3-0-26-1

McCullum comes back...

11.1

NL McCullum to Dilshan, no run, fullish outside off, goes to cut and it skips under the stroke

11.2

TM Dilshan    50* (32b 4x4 2x6)      NL McCullum    2-0-21-0
KC Sangakkara    21* (14b 4x4)      DL Vettori    3-0-25-0

James Franklin into the attack, needs to provide something for his side...

12.1

Franklin to Dilshan, 1 run, OUT, full and flicked out to deep midwicket, they refuse the second and Sangakkara is really struggling but the throw is wild and McCullum has to go a long way to take it and get back to the stumps but he gets there and Sangakkara has to go, giving New Zealand a glimpse of an opening. There was a muddle-up in considering the second and Sangakkara was sent back, terminally

KC Sangakkara run out 21 (19m 14b 4x4 0x6) SR: 150.00

12.2

Franklin to BMAJ Mendis, 1 run, full on leg stump, fumbled at short midwicket so they take two

12.3

12.5

TM Dilshan    52* (35b 4x4 2x6)      JEC Franklin    1-0-4-0
BMAJ Mendis    2* (3b)      NL McCullum    2-0-21-0

BMAJ Mendis    4* (7b)      NL McCullum    3-0-25-0
TM Dilshan    54* (37b 4x4 2x6)      JEC Franklin    1-0-4-0

14.1

Franklin to Dilshan, no run, back of a length outside off, cut off a bottom edge, doesn't run far enough past the keeper

14.2

Franklin to Dilshan, 1 run, swept away out to the deep fielder square on the leg side

14.3

Franklin to BMAJ Mendis, FOUR, too short and pulled behind square, helped on it's way

Again poor bowling at the wrong pace...

14.4

Franklin to BMAJ Mendis, OUT, driven into the off side but arial and taken at extra cover. A good time for Taylor to get his fielding spot on, taking a sharp low chance down to his right-hand side. It was driven from about off stump, full of length, it didn't get up that far off the ground but enough to produce a chance that was well held

BMAJ Mendis c Taylor b Franklin 8 (10m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 88.88

14.5

Franklin to Mathews, 1 run, full outside off, punched down to long off

14.6

AD Mathews    1* (1b)      NL McCullum    3-0-25-0

So long as Dilshan remains out there, Sri Lanka should have no problems in chasing 42 in 30 balls...Vettori returns...

15.1

Vettori to Dilshan, no run, floated up onto off stump, awkwardly played back to the bowler

15.2

Vettori to Dilshan, 1 run, off stump, meets it on the full, punched down to long off

15.3

Vettori to Mathews, 1 run, middle stump, again met on the full, whipped out to deep midwicket

15.4

AD Mathews    3* (3b)      JEC Franklin    2-0-11-1

16.1

Franklin to Mathews, 1 run, a step down the track, reaching for it and it comes off a wild outside edge towards deep cover, fortunately lands short of the fielder

16.2

Franklin to Dilshan, FOUR, too wide, driven past extra cover with great timing to beat long off

Dilshan is the key I said...poor ball really though, given room...

16.3

Franklin to Dilshan, 1 run, given room again but a slower ball, chopped out to the cover sweeper

16.4

Franklin to Mathews, 1 run, slower ball just outside off, clears the front leg and slaps it down to long on, stretching for it

16.5

Franklin to Dilshan, 1 run, well bowled, right up in the block hole, pushed out to extra cover

16.6

Franklin to Mathews, 2 runs, a wild swing to a straight ball, inside edge past short long leg and Oram dives and saves brilliantly on the deep backward square rope, could be a vital save that

End of over 17 (10 runs) Sri Lanka 147/3 (28 runs required from 18 balls, RR: 8.64, RRR: 9.33)
AD Mathews    7* (6b)      JEC Franklin    3-0-21-1
TM Dilshan    64* (47b 5x4 2x6)      DL Vettori    4-0-29-0

New Zealand taking their time with field placements ... Southee to bowl, from round the wicket. He usually aims for the blockhole wide outside off stump.

17.1

Southee to Dilshan, 1 run, full ball, which Dilshan tries to smash over long-on but mis-times it. The ball reaches the fielder on the bounce

17.2

17.3

Southee to Dilshan, 2 runs, Dilshan makes room by moving outside leg, Southee cramps him with a yorker, Dilshan squeezes it out towards midwicket and they take on Guptill's arm to complete the second

Taylor having a chat with his bowler ...

17.4

Southee to Dilshan, 1 run, nearly in the blockhole around off and middle, driven from the crease through cover point

17.5

AD Mathews    9* (8b)      JEC Franklin    3-0-21-1

Well, well, from a blazing start, Sri Lanka have work to do...i'm still backing them though...Franklin to bowl, he did it against India recently...

18.1

Franklin to Dilshan, SIX, full toss just outside off and smashed over midwicket into the crowd

Terrible delivery and that wins the game surely...

18.2

Franklin to Dilshan, 1 run, OUT, cut out to the deep fielder at cover, Southee returns well, and Dilshan is diving in coming back for the second and is short of his ground he was desperate to come back and keep the strike but a great piece of work on the cover boundary again gives New Zealand hope

TM Dilshan run out 76 (81m 53b 5x4 3x6) SR: 143.39

So no Dilshan to finish it off, new batsman now have to get Sri Lanka over the line...

18.3

Franklin to Perera, 1 run, outside off, slugged down the ground to long on from a length

18.4

Franklin to Mathews, 1 run, full outside off, dug out down the ground again, Franklin nearly fielded it but couldn't hold it, another single to long on

18.5

Franklin to Perera, FOUR, full and wide, swung away off an outside edge, third man is up and that will run away for four, poor ball, giving the batsman the chance to free his arms

18.6

Franklin to Perera, OUT, slower ball on off stump and Perera swings and loses his off stump. Franklin atoning slightly, bowling a great slower ball on a good length, Perera took a huge swipe at it and lost his off stump

End of over 19 (13 runs) Sri Lanka 167/5 (8 runs required from 6 balls, RR: 8.78, RRR: 8.00)
     JEC Franklin    4-0-34-2
AD Mathews    10* (9b)      TG Southee    3-0-37-0

So eight to win and Southee again to bowl around the wicket...

19.1

Southee to Mathews, 1 run, full and cracked out to cover, well fielded

Seven to win from five balls...

19.2

Southee to Thirimanne, 1 run, full outside off, goes for the ramp and gets it off the toe of the bat in the air towards short long leg, doesn't get it at all and it falls short of the fielder

Six to win...

19.3

Southee to Mathews, 1 run, full ball on leg stump, dug out through midwicket for...just a single as the fielder scrambles well off the rope

Five from three balls...

19.4

Southee to Thirimanne, no run, full and wide enough of the attempted drive, beats the bat, dot ball!

Five from two...

19.5

Southee to Thirimanne, FOUR, full and wide, goes for the ramp and this time pulls it off! What a shot, picked it up from well outside off and it sails over short long leg

So now just a single to win it...surely the field comes right up...run whatever...

19.6

Southee to Thirimanne, OUT, slap into the off side off an inside edge, easy run out at point surely to the non-striker's end but I think Taylor dropped the ball, he did! Taylor dropped it and Sri Lanka have won!! But no!! On the replay the ball has deflected off Taylor's hand and deflected into the stumps!!! Amazing stuff so New Zealand have effected the run out and this is going to be a Super Over...so much checking to see what actually caused the bails to come off but it looks as if it was ball...here comes the third umpire...it's OUT!!!

HDRL Thirimanne run out 5 (10m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 125.00

What drama! Everything we've been waiting for in this tournament has suddenly come alive tonight, fabulous, crazy cricket...so now we have a Super Over, and the rules are...Sri Lanka to bat first because they were the chasing team...one over each, two wickets per team...

End of over 20 (7 runs) Sri Lanka 174/6 (1 run required)
     TG Southee    4-0-44-0
AD Mathews    12* (11b)      JEC Franklin    4-0-34-2
