ICC World Twenty20, 22nd Match, Group 1: Sri Lanka v England at Pallekele, Oct 1, 2012
ICC World Twenty20 - 22nd match, Group 1
Sri Lanka won by 19 runs
1 October 2012 - night match (20-over match)

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

Sri Lanka 35/1   DPMD Jayawardene 16* (16b 1x4 1x6)   ST Finn 2.4-0-15-1

Swann to Jayawardene, OUT, tossed up outside off, slapped towards midwicket and caught! Didn't get the placement right and the fielder runs in and takes a super catch diving forward low to the ground, big wicket for England

DPMD Jayawardene c Morgan b Swann 42 (42m 38b 5x4 1x6) SR: 110.52

Sri Lanka 74/2   KC Sangakkara 13* (11b 1x4)   GP Swann 2.1-0-16-1

Swann to Sangakkara, OUT, tossed up outside off again, edged and caught behind! A thin nick and England have two huge breakthroughs in a couple of balls. It was nicely floated up, Sangakkara pressed forward outside off and got a thin edge through to Bairstow. The batsman looked pretty unhappy but the umpire's finger went up quickly

KC Sangakkara c †Bairstow b Swann 13 (22m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 108.33

Sri Lanka 74/3   AD Mathews 0* (0b)   GP Swann 2.2-0-16-2

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

Sri Lanka 126/4   AD Mathews 28* (18b 3x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 2.3-0-16-1

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

Sri Lanka 126/5   HDRL Thirimanne 0* (0b)   SCJ Broad 2.4-0-16-2

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

Sri Lanka 162/6   NLTC Perera 20* (12b 2x6)   SCJ Broad 3.5-0-32-3
