25 September 2009 - day/night match (50-over match)

Onions to Jayasuriya, OUT, top ball and that's edged! Really a gem of a delivery from Onions, pitched up, no room to work with, lures Jayasuriya forward, then deviates ever so gently as he pushes at it and the thin nick is snapped up by Prior

ST Jayasuriya c †Prior b Onions 0 (8m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 7/1   TM Dilshan 2* (9b)   G Onions 0.5-0-6-1

Anderson to Dilshan, OUT, oh well held Morgan! Anderson gets his man, pitching it up outside off stump, Dilshan has a full-blooded drive at that but Morgan at backward point cups a good low catch

TM Dilshan c Morgan b Anderson 2 (12m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Sri Lanka 7/2   KC Sangakkara 0* (1b)   JM Anderson 1.3-0-1-1

Anderson to Jayawardene, OUT, gone, gone! Anderson does indeed pitch it up and this one is the inswinger, catching Jayawardene dead in front, late on the shot, beaten by the late swing

DPMD Jayawardene lbw b Anderson 9 (10m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Sri Lanka 17/3   KC Sangakkara 1* (4b)   JM Anderson 3-1-5-2

Onions to Sangakkara, OUT, edged and gone! Another one goes, its Sangakkara this time, chasing a full and wide ball leaving him and he can only edge it Strauss at first slip, who cups it in front of his face, Australian style

KC Sangakkara c Strauss b Onions 1 (16m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Sri Lanka 17/4   TT Samaraweera 0* (0b)   G Onions 2.2-0-12-2

Broad to Samaraweera, OUT, a wicket just when it seemed England were losing the plot! Broad locates his radar, pitches on a far better and fuller length as he searches for swing, Samaraweera goes for a hard-handed drive and pops an easy catch to Collingwood at backward point

TT Samaraweera c Collingwood b Broad 30 (69m 48b 4x4 0x6) SR: 62.50

Sri Lanka 81/5   SHT Kandamby 23* (39b 3x4)   SCJ Broad 5.5-0-24-1

Collingwood to Kandamby, OUT, snapped! Short of a length outside off, Kandamby taps it to cover and runs off, it was his call but Mathews turns him down, two men converge and Wright to has plenty of time to return the ball to Prior with Kandamby down the track

SHT Kandamby run out 53 (140m 82b 5x4 0x6) SR: 64.63

Sri Lanka 163/6   AD Mathews 46* (64b 6x4)   PD Collingwood 7.4-0-24-0

Wright to Mathews, OUT, gone! End of a good innings as Wright pitches on a good length and gets some gentle movement to draw the outside edge, Prior dives forward and takes the catch

AD Mathews c †Prior b Wright 52 (87m 73b 6x4 0x6) SR: 71.23

Sri Lanka 176/7   KMDN Kulasekara 6* (10b 1x4)   LJ Wright 4.5-0-27-1

Broad to Muralitharan, OUT, bye! Full and straight, Murali swings, misses, and the top of off stump goes flying

M Muralitharan b Broad 18 (9m 10b 2x4 1x6) SR: 180.00

Sri Lanka 197/8   KMDN Kulasekara 9* (15b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 8.2-0-41-2

Broad to Malinga, OUT, bowled him! That's an easy one for Broad, just pitching it up and beating the bat as Malinga tries a dinky little dab, again off stump is pegged back

SL Malinga b Broad 0 (1m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 197/9   KMDN Kulasekara 9* (15b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 8.3-0-41-3

Anderson to Mendis, OUT, good catch by Strauss at slip, diving forward to cup an outside edge low, Mendis stays in his crease and pushes at the ball and Anderson ends a very good evening personally

BAW Mendis c Strauss b Anderson 5 (17m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Sri Lanka 212/10   KMDN Kulasekara 17* (24b 1x4 1x6)   JM Anderson 9.3-2-20-3
