12 December 2009 - day/night match (20-over match)

Sharma to Dilshan, no run, extra bounce for Ishant, 137ks, just outside off, slightly short of good length, Dilshan goes for the big shot but the ball holds its line and beats him, and it carries chest high to Dhoni


Sharma to Dilshan, OUT, the leg stump has gone for an evening stroll. Ishant follows that corker up with a full and straight delivery, Dilshan looks to make room and play beside the line, the slightest of swings beats him and sends the leg stump cartwheeling. Ishant is all charged up

TM Dilshan b Sharma 1 (5m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33


Sharma to Sangakkara, FOUR, and looks like that innings hasn;t been interrupted at all. Leans forwar


Sharma to Sangakkara, 1 run, stays back and nudges it to wide of backward point for a single


Sharma to Jayasuriya, 1 wide, tries the bounces, misses the line by feet and gives away a wide down the leg side


Sharma to Jayasuriya, no run, another sharp delivery, 143ks, Jaya sees the width and goes for his upper-cut, but is beaten by the pace and the bounce, throat high for Dhoni this time


Sharma to Jayasuriya, 2 runs, this would have gone rib-high to second slip, but there is only one slip in place. Another sharp delivery, starts around off, moves away, Jaya pokes at it and gets a thick edge

Sri Lanka 18/1   I Sharma 1-0-8-1

Sharma to Jayasuriya, no run, Jaya tees of big time, and connects just the air, Ishant has made him play and miss


Sharma to Jayasuriya, 1 run, Raina saves three this time, that's three more than India saved the other night. It is a good extra-cover drive from Jaya, flying across the outfield, but Raina dives full length and gets a hand to it


Sharma to Sangakkara, FOUR, another smart shot from Sanga, comes onto the front foot, instead of covers he goes square this time, opening the face and going over point


Sharma to Sangakkara, FOUR, he can do now wrong it seems, gets an inside edge this time, is late on the drive, but the edge misses both the stumps and the keeper, and flies across to fine-leg boundary


Sharma to Sangakkara, FOUR, shot of the evening so far, stands tall, just meets a back-of-a-length delivery on the up, just a push, finds the extra-cover gap and it speeds across


Sharma to Sangakkara, 1 wide, short delivery, and it moves away from Sanga, too far away


Sharma to Sangakkara, no run, short delivery again but better directed, into the ribs, and Sanga defends it

Sri Lanka 43/1   I Sharma 2-0-22-1

Sharma to Jayawardene, 1 wide, and starts with a wide down the leg side, hawww


Sharma to Jayawardene, no run, back of a length, on off stump, played back to the bowler


Sharma to Jayawardene, 1 run, back of a length outside off, runs it down to third man


Sharma to Jayasinghe, 1 leg bye, almost lbw here, he stands in the crease and swings across the line and misses, just shaping down the leg side


Sharma to Jayawardene, SIX, this is the same shot but played much more classily, clears the front leg, makes clean contact, and picks this length ball over midwicket boundary


Sharma to Jayawardene, OUT, slower ball gets Mahela here, who looks for another six and ends up skying it to long-off where Tyagi takes a safe catch. Smartly bowled, and gives India a chance to pull SL back

DPMD Jayawardene c Tyagi b Sharma 12 (8m 6b 1x4 1x6) SR: 200.00


Sharma to Jayasinghe, 1 leg bye, misses out on a leg-side offering, this is short and on the pads, but he is late into the shot

Sri Lanka 142/4   I Sharma 3-0-30-2

Sharma to Mathews, 2 runs, yorker, incredibly timed, it is flying across to the wide long-on boundary, Kohli does well to get down and keep them down to two


Sharma to Mathews, SIX, take the Bravo flick, take out a touch of arrogance, and you have this shot, just a turn of wrist at the right time, and the timing carries it over deep square leg. Incredible shot


Sharma to Mathews, 1 run, back of a length, pushed down to long-on for a single


Sharma to Kulasekara, no run, quick delivery, Kulasekara looks to push it for one, and ends up playing inside the line


Sharma to Kulasekara, 1 run, this time he connects and gets a single down to long-on


Sharma to Mathews, 2 runs, it's spreading like the wine flu, Karthik drops one this time. It's a pick-up shot off the pads, Dinesh Karthik moves to his right and gets to it, gets low and gets both hands to it but cannot hold onto it. India you beauty

Sri Lanka 190/7   I Sharma 4-0-42-2
