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

West Indies 8/0   J Charles 7* (9b 1x4)   SL Malinga 0.1-0-4-0

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

West Indies 12/0   J Charles 11* (12b 2x4)   SL Malinga 0.4-0-8-0

5.2

Kulasekara to Bravo, FOUR, what a good way to get off the mark, fuller delivery coming back in and Bravo just showed the full face of the bat and punched it wide of mid-on

West Indies 20/2   DJ Bravo 4* (1b 1x4)   KMDN Kulasekara 2.2-0-7-1

6.3

Mathews to Samuels, FOUR, deliberately done, tucked him up for room and Samuels took advantage of the fact that there was no slip, opened the face of the bat and cheekily dabbed it past the keeper

West Indies 26/2   MN Samuels 5* (3b 1x4)   AD Mathews 1.3-0-9-0

6.5

Mathews to Bravo, FOUR, power behind this shot, wide outside the off stump and he gets his bat down and forces it wide of mid-off and cover, quite a big follow through

West Indies 31/2   DJ Bravo 9* (7b 2x4)   AD Mathews 1.5-0-14-0

7.3

Herath to Bravo, FOUR, brute force on that one, tossed up and full outside the off stump and crashed past the covers

West Indies 38/2   DJ Bravo 15* (10b 3x4)   HMRKB Herath 0.3-0-5-0

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

West Indies 68/2   MN Samuels 18* (16b 2x4)   SL Malinga 1.2-0-13-0

13.5

Mathews to Bravo, FOUR, wow! Crisp timing there, full outside the off stump and he calmly opened the face of the bat and steered it past point, the fielders didn't move, used the pace on the ball

West Indies 78/2   DJ Bravo 38* (31b 4x4 2x6)   AD Mathews 2.5-0-22-0

17.5

Kulasekara to Samuels, FOUR, Kula getting caned here, full and wide and Samuels makes room and crashes that wide of extra cover

West Indies 115/4   MN Samuels 45* (31b 3x4 2x6)   KMDN Kulasekara 3.5-0-24-1

17.6

Kulasekara to Samuels, FOUR, make that 21 off the over! Samuels makes room to a fuller delivery and bashes that down the ground along the turf, nobody was around to stop that

West Indies 119/4   MN Samuels 49* (32b 4x4 2x6)   KMDN Kulasekara 4-0-28-1
