  Sri Lanka innings (50 overs maximum) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal MDK Perera c †Mustard b Sidebottom 30 61 41 3 0 73.17
13.1 perfect. Perfect line, perfect length, perfect half-bat-width's movement. That pitched on middle and kept going across the right hander. Easy catch for Mustard and Sidebottom has the breakthrough 74/2
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Pietersen b Anderson 26 31 18 1 2 144.44
6.6 got him! Almost identical to the previous match, Sanath beaten by the slower ball and he punches it straight to Pietersen at mid-off 45/1
View dismissal KC Sangakkara b Shah 26 74 44 1 0 59.09
22.6 and he's bowled him! Has he? Sangakkara tried to sweep but it was too full, and he didn't connect either...and the batsman is standing his ground. The umpire has called a wide and here comes the replay...which confirms he is comprehensively bowled. A ripper from Shah - that turned prodigiously. A beautiful ball 108/4
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c Broad b Sidebottom 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
13.4 well, well, another duck for Jayawardene, and once again it's a very soft dismissal. Tries to whip across the line, gets a looping leading edge, and Broad slides in from mid-on to scoop the catch inches from the turf! 74/3
View dismissal LPC Silva c Anderson b Broad 73 142 109 9 0 66.97
46.5 but he's gone this time, and that's clever cricket by England. A bouncer, Silva tries to uppercut it over third man's head but it loops straight down Anderson's throat 210/9
View dismissal TM Dilshan run out (Bell/†Mustard) 9 18 16 0 0 56.25
28.5 from Bopara, gone! A complete mix-up. Dilshan dropped it out into the off side where Bell was lurking. There was never a run there. Crazy stuff from Dilshan 131/5
View dismissal J Mubarak c Bopara b Panesar 6 34 15 0 0 40.00
35.5 a filthy wide long-hop, and Mubarak steers it straight into Bopara's midriff at gully! That is tamer than Paris Hilton's chihuahua, and a very timely wicket for England 158/6
View dismissal KS Lokuarachchi lbw b Bopara 0 3 3 0 0 0.00
36.4 steady does the trick! That was the cumulative effect of an excellent spell from Bopara. Pitched right up to the bat, straight as they come, and Lokuarachchi misses with a leg-side nurdle. Rudi Koertzen's finger raises inexorably, and Sri Lanka are on the ropes 159/7
View dismissal WPUJC Vaas b Broad 15 30 26 1 0 57.69
44.2 bowled him! A little too short to be cutting, and he never moved his feet either - they were absolutely concreted to the crease. Nevertheless, he went for the cut and inside-edged it onto his off stump 193/8
View dismissal CRD Fernando b Broad 12 20 13 1 0 92.30
48.1 got him! Three wickets for Broad who sends down a superb slower ball, outfoxing Fernando who completely misread the dobber 211/10

  England innings (target: 212 runs from 50 overs) R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AN Cook c †Sangakkara b Fernando 28 73 47 3 0 59.57
15.4 good catch! Another excellent take from Sangakkara diving to his left to pluck a thick outside edge from Cook, tumbling to his left. Not an easy catch by any means, but made to look very simple 56/3
View dismissal P Mustard c †Sangakkara b Vaas 1 12 7 0 0 14.28
2.4 edged and brilliantly caught outside off stump! A bit of width and Mustard had a slash, but Sangakkara read the situation perfectly, dived full-stretch with his right hand, and plucked the catch where first slip would have been! Massive breakthrough 3/1
View dismissal IR Bell c Malinga b Fernando 11 32 25 1 0 44.00
9.6 slower ball, and Bell is suckered by it! Climbs into a flick over midwicket, but can't clear Malinga at mid-on! That's a very timely wicket, and once again Bell has fallen when well set 32/2
View dismissal KP Pietersen b Vaas 28 45 25 5 0 112.00
18.5 he's bowled him! Vaas has bowled him around his legs - what a wicket that is. Pietersen stepped across his stumps - why? - and Vaas zoned in to take out his leg stump 76/5
View dismissal PD Collingwood* lbw b Fernando 2 9 5 0 0 40.00
17.2 that's gone, I'm telling you. Collingwood is nailed back in his crease - absolutely no feet movement, and that's hitting middle-and-leg. Rudi Koertzen gives him the deathly slow finger of fate 72/4
View dismissal OA Shah c Lokuarachchi b Fernando 4 14 10 0 0 40.00
19.6 gone! And another one for Fernando who's found a beauty which spat up on Shah. He tried to fend it off but it ballooned straight to Lokuarachchi at cover. Another cracking delivery from Fernando who, it is fair to say, is absolutely on fire 78/6
RS Bopara not out 16 50 31 1 0 51.61
View dismissal SCJ Broad c Jayasuriya b Fernando 1 7 3 0 0 33.33
21.1 and there it is! Broad beaten by the slower ball and chips it straight into Jayasuriya's hands at midwicket 82/7
View dismissal RJ Sidebottom b Fernando 0 1 2 0 0 0.00
21.3 and another! This is an extraordinary performance from Fernando. It was full, it was straight...and Sidebottom just missed it. Simple as that 82/8
View dismissal JM Anderson c †Sangakkara b Malinga 2 10 7 0 0 28.57
23.5 another catch for Sangakkara and an easy one too. An indecisive poke from Anderson who tried to push it to cover and got a thick outside edge 87/9
View dismissal MS Panesar c †Sangakkara b Malinga 3 21 13 0 0 23.07
29.1 brilliant catch from Sangakkara to end the match as Monty fished to this wider ball. A thick outside edge and Sangakkara took a cracker to his left 104/10
