ICC World Twenty20 - 18th match, Group 1

Sri Lanka v West Indies

Sri Lanka won by 9 wickets (with 28 balls remaining)

2.1

Malinga to Charles, FOUR, the introduction of Malinga brings up a boundary straightaway, too straight on the pads and flicked away to the leg side, fine leg was up, just used the pace

2.2

Malinga to Charles, no run, slower ball and he reached out a stabbed at it, checked his shot and it was in the air for a while before rolling to mid-off

2.3

Malinga to Charles, no run, teasing him with another slower, shorter and wider, Charles hung his bat out and nearly edged it

2.4

Malinga to Charles, FOUR, quite effortless, it was quicker and pitched up, fetched that from middle and lofted it over the bowler's head, timed it well

2.5

Malinga to Charles, no run, slower ball and he brings it back in and he clips it straight to midwicket

2.6

Malinga to Charles, no run, gives him width and he slaps it straight to point, better over for West Indies

West Indies 12/0   SL Malinga 1-0-8-0

12.1

Malinga to Bravo, 1 run, fires that full and wide outside off, opens the face and steers it wide of point

12.2

Malinga to Samuels, FOUR, cleverly done! Why can't they place a slip? Tucks him up for room and he opens the face and gently dabs it past Sangakkara, we've seen a few of those today

12.3

Malinga to Samuels, 1 run, slower ball and he pushes it wide of cover point

12.4

Malinga to Bravo, 1 run, aims for the yorker on the leg stump and he jams it down to midwicket

12.5

Malinga to Samuels, no run, the bouncer! I suspect we will see more of this when WI come out to bowl, Samuels just ducks under that

12.6

Malinga to Samuels, 1 run, no slip and another cheeky dab down to third man, Kula is more fine so he easily picks it up

West Indies 71/2   SL Malinga 2-0-16-0

16.1

Malinga to Russell, 1 run, good running, squeezed out to the off side and they set off quickly for the run

16.2

Malinga to Samuels, 1 run, awkwardly chipped away over midwicket, it was a fast yorker

16.3

Malinga to Russell, 1 run, another testing yorker on the leg stump, he makes room and squeezes it out, how do you put away those? Ask Kohli

16.4

Malinga to Samuels, 1 run, jams out another yorker wide of the bowler for a single to long-on

16.5

Malinga to Russell, 1 run, makes room and bashes a full delivery down to long-off

16.6

Malinga to Samuels, 2 runs, fires it full on the pads and he whips it down to deep midwicket, good fielding at the boundary

West Indies 98/4   SL Malinga 3-0-23-0

18.1

Malinga to Russell, no run, the slower ball and cleverly pitched shorter, the batsman made room to slash that but missed it

18.2

Malinga to Russell, 1 run, makes room and carves it over cover, long-off comes across to his left and catches it on the bounce

18.3

Malinga to Samuels, no run, Samuels slashes at thin air, the slower bouncer and he was too early on the pull

18.4

Malinga to Samuels, 1 run, this time he decides to stay at the crease and easily dabs it down to third man to bring up his fifty

18.5

Malinga to Russell, no run, shorter delivery and Russell swings and the ball takes the bottom edge and bounces towards Sanga, he's had a tough time behind the stumps

18.6

Malinga to Russell, 1 run, fetches a short one from outside off and pulls towards long-on, Perera catches it awkwardly on the bounce

West Indies 122/4   SL Malinga 4-0-26-0
