ICC World Twenty20, Final: Sri Lanka v West Indies at Colombo (RPS), Oct 7, 2012
West Indies won by 36 runs
7 October 2012 - night match (20-over match)

Kulasekara to Gayle, no run, a bit of away swing there for Kulasekara, widish delivery from the bowler there, leaves that alone


Kulasekara to Gayle, no run, ohh, walks forward, took a couple of steps as that was bowled and then defended that good length delivery firmly towards mid-off


Kulasekara to Gayle, no run, short of a good length, just a bit of away movement after pitching on middle and off, defends it to point


Kulasekara to Gayle, 1 wide, down the leg side and West Indies get their first run, Gayle leaves that alone and the Windies are off the mark


Kulasekara to Gayle, no run, away movement again, nipping away from a goodish length, gets on the back foot and defends it watchfully towards point


Kulasekara to Gayle, no run, beaten, beaten, comes down the track, wants to get a move on, pitched up and he misses as he drives against one that swings away past the outside edge


Kulasekara to Gayle, no run, on leg stump, bowled at 130kmph, tries to tickle it fine, brushes the pads, no run on offer, excellent start by Kula and Angelo

West Indies 1/1   KMDN Kulasekara 1-0-1-0

Kulasekara to Samuels, FOUR, width, on a good length and enough width for Marlon to free his arms, slams that past a diving extra cover for a boundary, relief for the batsmen


Kulasekara to Samuels, no run, angling in this time, good bounce off a good length, takes his bottom hand off to defend it into the leg side


Kulasekara to Samuels, 1 run, driven on the up this time, presents a straight bat to play it just wide of mid-off for a single


Kulasekara to Gayle, no run, huge appeal for lbw, Taufel shakes his head, that struck him in line no doubt but it pitched outside leg, pitched outside and moved towards middle, just marginally outside leg stump mind you, was close, but just outside


Kulasekara to Gayle, 1 run, punched off the front foot wide of mid-off to complete another quick single


Kulasekara to Samuels, no run, nicely bowled and well played in the end, was surprised by the bounce and dropped it down with soft hands towards point, shot off from a good length

West Indies 8/1   KMDN Kulasekara 2-0-7-0

Kulasekara to Sammy, 2 runs, slower length ball, pulled into the leg side, mistimed again so it lands in no-man's heath


Kulasekara to Sammy, FOUR, swung into the same region, this is far better timing and finds the gap between long on and deep midwicket


Kulasekara to Sammy, 2 runs, hard slap down to long off, the charge back for the second, I thought the fielder could have done better there


Kulasekara to Sammy, 2 runs, full ball, slapped down in that cow corner gap again, a chase from long on saves four, Dilshan down there


Kulasekara to Sammy, 1 run, slapped down to long off again, the charge back for the second again, Sammy gets hit by the throw, did he change his line of running there? What he has done is ran one short


Kulasekara to Sammy, FOUR, full ball, cracked down the ground and this goes all the way for four

West Indies 137/6   KMDN Kulasekara 3-0-22-0
