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

Finn to Jayawardene, 1 run, pitched up outside off stump, Jayawardene gets forward and pushed back past the stumps, mid-on comes fine but they scamper one


Finn to Dilshan, 1 run, touch shorter, coming back in towards the stumps, blocked into the leg side and again they steal a single


Finn to Jayawardene, 1 wide, length ball, leaving Jayawardene off the pitch and it goes too far, he can't get a bat on it, though Bairstow makes a good take


Finn to Jayawardene, 1 run, angling in off a slightly short length, turned into a gap at midwicket


Finn to Dilshan, no run, this seams back in, short of a length and jagging in, Dilshan gets an inside edge on to his groin and Finn fields in his follow-through


Finn to Dilshan, no run, pitched up a little more, tight line on off stump and pushed to mid-off


Finn to Dilshan, FOUR, short and ever-so-slightly wide from Finn, terrific pick-up from Dilshan, who stands still and drills a back-foot drive through cover-point for the first boundary of the innings

Sri Lanka 8/0   ST Finn 1-0-8-0

Finn to Dilshan, 1 run, throat-bothering delivery from Finn, jarring the splice of the bat and Dilshan does well to drop it into the leg side


Finn to Jayawardene, FOUR, bouncer, at the man and Jayawardene swivels to pull majestically over long leg - looked like it had gone all the way but signalled four


Finn to Jayawardene, no run, length ball, teasing and in the corridor, holds its line and Jayawardene plays and misses


Finn to Jayawardene, no run, another unsuccessful flash outside off from the batsman, beaten for pace


Finn to Jayawardene, 1 run, touch full, outside off, gets forward and chances a single to mid-off


Finn to Dilshan, no run, good length, Dilshan plays it on the up, cutting into the ground, can't get it off the square though

Sri Lanka 18/0   ST Finn 2-0-14-0

Finn to Jayawardene, no run, touch short, at the body, Jaya swivels adroitly but can only bung his pull straight to short fine leg


Finn to Jayawardene, no run, pitched up outside off and Jayawardene gives it the full gun, smashing a drive straight a Samit Patel, who puts himself in harm's way to stop it smartly. At least he's got a bit of cushioning


Finn to Jayawardene, 1 run, back of a length and pulled through square leg for one


Finn to Dilshan, OUT, got him, hit on the back pad and given! The ball came back at Dilshan, hitting him right in front, the only question was height - Finn doesn't get too many lbws off length deliveries - but it was good enough to convince Steve Davis

TM Dilshan lbw b Finn 16 (20m 12b 1x4 1x6) SR: 133.33


Finn to Sangakkara, 2 runs, low full toss, slightly wide of off and Sangakkara reaches out to push a couple through the covers


Finn to Sangakkara, FOUR, edged but it dies on Bairstow and runs through his legs for four! Good bowling from Finn but more runs on the board for Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka 41/1   ST Finn 3-0-21-1

Finn to Thirimanne, no run, full and just wide of off stump, dug out towards point


Finn to Thirimanne, no run, length ball, sliding across the left-hander, goes to drive without moving the feet, misses


Finn to Thirimanne, 1 run, outside off, fuller this time, cracked out to deep cover


Finn to Perera, no run, outside off, goes for the vacant midwicket area on the pull, misses by a distance, beaten for pace


Finn to Perera, 2 runs, short ball outside of, sliced in the air, just over mid off's head, Broad couldn't get across in time with the dive, unlucky for Finn, one short too, poor running for once


Finn to Perera, 1 leg bye, yorker length on leg stump, runs off the pad towards point

Sri Lanka 132/5   ST Finn 4-0-24-1
