ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 20th match, Group A

Sri Lanka v Australia

No result

1.1

Tait to Dilshan, FOUR, immediately troubles Dilshan with extra pace and bounce, he went for his favourite slap-punch through the off side, got an outside edge that flew wide of second slip, and beat third man as well

1.2

Tait to Dilshan, no run, throws the bait at Dilshan with a full and swinging delivery outside off stump, Dilshan knows only one way to deal with baits, he takes them on gleefully, but the away movement beats his airy attempted drive

1.3

Tait to Dilshan, no run, down the pads now off a full length, he misses out on the flick, that should have been put away

1.4

Tait to Dilshan, OUT, Tait has won this short but searing battle, Dilshan was on the crease, maybe expecting a bouncer, it was that bait again, moving away from a length outside off, Dilshan threw everything at it, and the edge flew at a comfortable height to White at second slip, Tait is pumped up, really is

TM Dilshan c White b Tait 4 (7m 4b 1x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 6/1   TM Dilshan 4 (4b 1x4)
