ICC Cricket World Cup, 2010/11 / Wicket commentary

ICC Cricket World Cup - 4th quarter final

Sri Lanka v England

Sri Lanka won by 10 wickets (with 63 balls remaining)

7.6

Dilshan to Strauss, OUT, gone! That was always going to happen. A horrid innings from the captain is ended when misses a pull against a ball that doesn't bounce much. Much deserved for Dilshan

AJ Strauss b Dilshan 5 (30m 19b 0x4 0x6) SR: 26.31

England 29/1   IR Bell 24* (29b 3x4)   TM Dilshan 4-1-9-1

8.6

Mathews to Bell, OUT, gone! Huge wicket for Sri Lanka as Bell chips a catch to midwicket. Was back of a length and Bell tried to force it through the leg side but didn't keep it down. Was a loose shot and a simple catch. Another start wasted from Bell. England wobbling.

IR Bell c Samaraweera b Mathews 25 (36m 32b 3x4 0x6) SR: 78.12

England 31/2   IJL Trott 1* (3b)   AD Mathews 3-0-15-1

26.6

Muralitharan to Bopara, OUT, gone! Muralitharan makes the breakthrough as Bopara is given lbw sweeping a very full delivery. Murali was round the wicket, it struck him full on the pad and was hitting middle. Bopara reviewed but it was stone dead

RS Bopara lbw b Muralitharan 31 (70m 56b 1x4 0x6) SR: 55.35

England 95/3   IJL Trott 33* (55b)   M Muralitharan 5-0-22-1

42.6

Malinga to Morgan, OUT, gone! This time Sri Lanka take a catch and the Powerplay works for the bowling side again. Full outside off, Morgan tried to go over the covers but lofts a chancer to cover who takes it comfortably. Fine innings from Morgan, but England needed him to finish these 50 overs

EJG Morgan c Mathews b Malinga 50 (66m 55b 4x4 0x6) SR: 90.90

England 186/4   IJL Trott 71* (96b 1x4)   SL Malinga 7-0-28-1

43.1

Mendis to Swann, OUT, gone! That didn't last long. Swann goes for the reverse slog-sweep and is stone dead. He set himself so early the bowler hadn't delivered. England coming off the rails in the Powerplay again

GP Swann lbw b Mendis 0 (2m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

England 186/5   IJL Trott 71* (96b 1x4)   BAW Mendis 8.1-0-26-1

48.3

Muralitharan to Trott, OUT, gone...Trott goes trying to clear the rope as a top edged a sweep is safely taken at deep square and he drags himself off the park

IJL Trott c Jayawardene b Muralitharan 86 (172m 115b 2x4 0x6) SR: 74.78

England 212/6   MJ Prior 9* (13b)   M Muralitharan 8.3-0-44-2
