England tour of Sri Lanka, 2007/08 / Wicket commentary

England in Sri Lanka ODI Series - 1st ODI

Sri Lanka v England

Sri Lanka won by 119 runs

12.4

Sidebottom to Jayasuriya, OUT, no mistake this time! Jayasuriya had another mow across the line, but it was a slower ball and Ravi Bopara at deep midwicket had time to compose himself under a top-edged swirler

ST Jayasuriya c Bopara b Sidebottom 41 (69m 35b 5x4 1x6) SR: 117.14

Sri Lanka 71/1   WU Tharanga 25* (41b 2x4)   RJ Sidebottom 4.4-0-23-1

17.6

Broad to Tharanga, OUT, Tharanga gives Broad the charge, the bowler sees him coming and bangs it in, Tharanga, cramped, can do little more than swat at it and the ball loops gently to Collingwood at point ...

WU Tharanga c Collingwood b Broad 40 (86m 63b 2x4 0x6) SR: 63.49

Sri Lanka 95/2   KC Sangakkara 7* (10b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 5-0-15-1

32.6

Swann to Sangakkara, OUT, deceived Sangakkara with one which pitched on middle-and-leg and turned way past his outside edge - Sangakkara had come down the track in a pre-meditated manner, and Mustard did the rest; tidily, too

KC Sangakkara st †Mustard b Swann 38 (75m 59b 4x4 0x6) SR: 64.40

Sri Lanka 166/3   DPMD Jayawardene 37* (41b 2x4)   GP Swann 5-0-22-1

43.1

Collingwood to Jayawardene, OUT, outside off, drives on the up and straight to Shah inside the cover boundary who watched it right into his clasping hands

DPMD Jayawardene c Shah b Collingwood 66 (101m 74b 4x4 0x6) SR: 89.18

Sri Lanka 225/4   LPC Silva 28* (28b 1x4 1x6)   PD Collingwood 8.1-0-37-1

45.4

Collingwood to Silva, OUT, Silva had decided enough was enough there, but unfortunately for him it was... hooking right down the throat of deep square leg

LPC Silva c Cook b Collingwood 33 (53m 36b 1x4 1x6) SR: 91.66

Sri Lanka 237/5   TM Dilshan 4* (7b)   PD Collingwood 9.4-0-44-2

46.3

Broad to Mubarak, OUT, hooked low and straight: Anderson runs in hard from long leg and slides in to take a well-judged catch on his knees

J Mubarak c Anderson b Broad 1 (4m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 240/6   TM Dilshan 5* (10b)   SCJ Broad 8.3-0-35-2

49.1

Sidebottom to Maharoof, OUT, another catch in the deep for Anderson, Maharoof going for the six over long-on

MF Maharoof c Anderson b Sidebottom 22 (12m 12b 3x4 0x6) SR: 183.33

Sri Lanka 264/7   TM Dilshan 7* (14b)   RJ Sidebottom 9.1-0-51-2
