1 October 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Dernbach to Jayawardene, 1 leg bye, length ball, maybe a touch slow, on leg stump and rolls away off the pad behind square


Dernbach to Dilshan, 2 runs, tries the bouncer, good pace on it and Dilshan isn't in control of the hook shot, a top edge looping safe towards deep midwicket


Dernbach to Dilshan, no run, short of a length again, doesn't get up that much and Dilshan misses trying to pull, it's only an inching or two from clipping the top of off too


Dernbach to Dilshan, 1 run, dropped him! Dernbach got bounce this time, it took the shoulder of the bat and flew around head height to Graeme Swann, who grasped at it, popped it up in the air and over his own head


Dernbach to Jayawardene, no run, another good lifter from Dernbach, banging the ball in and it fizzes up off the surface past the outside edge


Dernbach to Jayawardene, no run, pushed through on a fullish length, Jayawardene is hit on the pad trying to play across the line ... but it was probably sneaking down leg

Sri Lanka 12/0   JW Dernbach 1-0-3-0

Dernbach to Jayawardene, no run, this is a cracking start from Dernbach, another rising delivery off the pitch beats the outside edge as Jayawardene plays a big, booming drive


Dernbach to Jayawardene, SIX, well, that's quite a comeback! Touch short but not heinously so, Jayawardene seizes on it and swings it high over long leg with barely a blink


Dernbach to Jayawardene, 1 run, dug in again and pulled hard, rolls the wrists and it goes flat to deep square leg for one


Dernbach to Dilshan, SIX, short and wide and uppercut all the way over third man! Wright gave it the Superman dive on the rope but it was well over his head


Dernbach to Dilshan, 1 wide, down the leg side, Dilshan tries to scoop but it's too wide and called as much


Dernbach to Dilshan, 1 run, slower ball on leg stump, waits for it and tucks to leg


Dernbach to Jayawardene, 1 run, another slower delivery out the back of the hand, bounces up off the pitch and Jayawardene taps it down into the leg side for another single

Sri Lanka 34/0   JW Dernbach 2-0-19-0

Dernbach to Perera, 1 wide, and starts down the leg side


Dernbach to Perera, 2 runs, full ball on the stumps, whipped out towards midwicket and can't quite take it, just didn't pick it up properly and it falls in front of him by a fraction, saved the boundary though


Dernbach to Perera, SIX, length ball and this time crashed over deep square leg's head, smashed that was, flat six


Dernbach to Perera, no run, yorker length outside off, reached for and missed


Dernbach to Perera, no run, bumper outside off, ignored, hoping for the wide I think but it was within the margins


Dernbach to Perera, 1 run, fired in to off stump, a swing brings an inside edge down to long leg, Finn scrambles well and saves the second


Dernbach to Thirimanne, SIX, sets himself and slugs it from outside off over long on, big strike and a great time to pick up a maximum

Sri Lanka 148/5   JW Dernbach 3-0-35-0

Dernbach to Perera, 1 run, length around middle and leg, whacked to deep square leg, fielded well


Dernbach to Kulasekara, 1 run, yorker-length, slapped down to long off, got the delivery slightly too full


Dernbach to Perera, 2 runs, full just outside off and they take two to long off, that is not great fielding at all, it was straight to the man coming in off the rope, poor throw from Buttler


Dernbach to Perera, 2 runs, another good yorker, dug out to extra cover, a stupid throw gives away an overthrow


Dernbach to Perera, 1 run, slower short ball, paddled out to deep square leg


Dernbach to Kulasekara, no run, full and outside off, left alone thinking it was wide but you don't get a wide when you step across your stumps

Sri Lanka 169/6   JW Dernbach 4-0-42-0
