ICC World Twenty20 - 22nd match, Group 1
Sri Lanka won by 19 runs
1 October 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Broad to Jayawardene, no run, nice line and length to begin with, shaping away and beats the outside edge - in fact Bairstow thinks there might have been a nick


Broad to Jayawardene, no run, Jayawardene backs away and throws the bat violently at a length ball - another miss


Broad to Jayawardene, no run, drags this short, Jaya is late on it and the ball cannons into his body and then down on to the pitch ... join the dots


Broad to Jayawardene, 2 runs, oooooh, that's close to being caught at extra-cover! The ball stuck in the pitch, Jayawardene drove on the up and it looped just over the fingertips of Bopara


Broad to Jayawardene, no run, full of a length, pushed towards point


Broad to Jayawardene, 1 run, pitched up wide of the stumps, jams his bat down and squirts one to backward point as they take on the fielder successfully

Sri Lanka 44/1   SCJ Broad 1-0-3-0

Broad to Mathews, no run, yorker length just outside off, swung and missed


Broad to Mathews, no run, length outside off, left alone this time


Broad to Mathews, no run, step down the wicket, swing and a miss to a ball just outside off, length again


Broad to Mathews, no run, length ball, around off stump, punched off the back foot into extra cover


Broad to Mathews, FOUR, length ball outside off, a swing over mid off, welcome boundary, struck well, giving himself a little room outside leg stump


Broad to Mathews, FOUR, full toss on middle but again the batsman backs away and slaps it past mid off for four

Sri Lanka 90/3   SCJ Broad 2-0-11-0

Broad to Mathews, FOUR, full ball just outside off, slapped wide of long off, a slide from the fielder and gets it all the way to the rope, top shot again


Broad to Mathews, 1 run, length just outside off, angled down to third man


Broad to BMAJ Mendis, OUT, back of a length, pulled off high on the bat and taken by midwicket. It just skidded on a little bit, he was late on the pull stroke and chipped it not quite over Bopara's head who took a good catch retreating. England needed a wicket badly but that's a great little innings

BMAJ Mendis c Bopara b Broad 18 (21m 13b 2x4 1x6) SR: 138.46


Broad to Mathews, OUT, back of a length and dragged it on another double strike bringing England back into the innings again. Again the pull stroke was late and this is a bottom edge onto leg stump, another well-set man goes

AD Mathews b Broad 28 (24m 19b 3x4 1x6) SR: 147.36


Broad to Perera, 2 runs, back of a length just outside off, guided towards third man where Dernbach slides and saves brilliantly


Broad to Perera, no run, short ball rears up and it's kept out on the crease

Sri Lanka 128/5   SCJ Broad 3-0-18-2

Broad to Perera, 1 wide, full but too wide outside off


Broad to Perera, SIX, oh that is huge, slapped from outside off, on a length just outside off and picked up brilliantly, clubbed over the fielder, not a great delivery though, in the slot


Broad to Perera, 1 run, much better, full and wide, carved down to third man


Broad to Thirimanne, 2 runs, length again, slugged into the leg side, doesn't get it and bloops short of the deep square leg, another couple though


Broad to Thirimanne, FOUR, full toss around leg stump, backs away and angles it past backward point for four to third man, very lucky, leading edge was trying to go leg side


Broad to Thirimanne, OUT, slower ball on the stump and a swing and a miss and out goes the off stump. Broad gets his man but damage done here. Was trying to go big over the leg side and missed by a distance

HDRL Thirimanne b Broad 13 (17m 7b 1x4 1x6) SR: 185.71


Broad to Kulasekara, no run, cutter that comes back in from a length and just goes past the off stump as it was tried to be back-cut

Sri Lanka 162/6   SCJ Broad 4-0-32-3
