ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 26th match, Group A

Sri Lanka v Zimbabwe

Sri Lanka won by 139 runs

48.1

Panyangara to Samaraweera, 1 run, drops it in to the off side for a single, better than giving catching practice

48.3

Panyangara to Samaraweera, 1 run, Thilan steps outside off stump, and plays a neat cover drive to bring Sanga on strike

48.6

Panyangara to Samaraweera, 1 run, he walks outside off stump, and flicks this one away in front of square leg, a bit strange to see Thilan go about in these end overs

Sri Lanka 316/6   TT Samaraweera 3* (3b)

49.1

Mpofu to Samaraweera, no run, beats him with a slower and wide one outside off stump, he wanted to cut it away

49.2

Mpofu to Samaraweera, 1 run, goes walking across the stumps and down the track, and flicks through midwicket, he does this one well, actually

49.5

Mpofu to Samaraweera, FOUR, Thilan gets the boundary this time, goes outside off stump, and pulls from there backward of square leg with some supple wrists

49.6

Mpofu to Samaraweera, 1 leg bye, in the blockhole, they go up for an appeal as it strikes the pads, there have been precious few of those, there was one off the first ball of the innings, the umpire was not interested then, he is not interested now, Thilan missed with a swing across the line

Sri Lanka 327/6   TT Samaraweera 8* (7b 1x4)
