England tour of Sri Lanka, 5th ODI: Sri Lanka v England at Colombo (RPS), Oct 13, 2007
Sri Lanka won by 107 runs
13 October 2007 - day/night match (50-over match)

Anderson to Jayasuriya, OUT, got him! Almost identical to the previous match, Sanath beaten by the slower ball and he punches it straight to Pietersen at mid-off

ST Jayasuriya c Pietersen b Anderson 26 (31m 18b 1x4 2x6) SR: 144.44

Sri Lanka 45/1   MDK Perera 15* (24b 1x4)   JM Anderson 4-0-28-1

Sidebottom to Perera, OUT, 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

MDK Perera c †Mustard b Sidebottom 30 (61m 41b 3x4 0x6) SR: 73.17

Sri Lanka 74/2   KC Sangakkara 12* (20b 1x4)   RJ Sidebottom 6.1-1-25-1

Sidebottom to Jayawardene, OUT, 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!

DPMD Jayawardene c Broad b Sidebottom 0 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 74/3   KC Sangakkara 12* (20b 1x4)   RJ Sidebottom 6.4-1-25-2

Shah to Sangakkara, OUT, 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

KC Sangakkara b Shah 26 (74m 44b 1x4 0x6) SR: 59.09

Sri Lanka 108/4   LPC Silva 20* (32b 3x4)   OA Shah 1-0-5-1

Bopara to Dilshan, OUT, 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

TM Dilshan run out 9 (18m 16b 0x4 0x6) SR: 56.25

Sri Lanka 131/5   LPC Silva 31* (51b 3x4)   RS Bopara 0.5-0-1-0

Panesar to Mubarak, OUT, 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

J Mubarak c Bopara b Panesar 6 (34m 15b 0x4 0x6) SR: 40.00

Sri Lanka 158/6   LPC Silva 50* (79b 5x4)   MS Panesar 6.5-0-26-1

Bopara to Lokuarachchi, OUT, 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

KS Lokuarachchi lbw b Bopara 0 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 159/7   LPC Silva 51* (81b 5x4)   RS Bopara 4.4-1-11-1

Broad to Vaas, OUT, 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

WPUJC Vaas b Broad 15 (30m 26b 1x4 0x6) SR: 57.69

Sri Lanka 193/8   LPC Silva 67* (101b 8x4)   SCJ Broad 7.2-0-28-1

Broad to Silva, OUT, 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

LPC Silva c Anderson b Broad 73 (142m 109b 9x4 0x6) SR: 66.97

Sri Lanka 210/9   CRD Fernando 11* (7b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 8.5-0-36-2

Broad to Fernando, OUT, got him! Three wickets for Broad who sends down a superb slower ball, outfoxing Fernando who completely misread the dobber

CRD Fernando b Broad 12 (20m 13b 1x4 0x6) SR: 92.30

Sri Lanka 211/10   SL Malinga 0* (2b)   SCJ Broad 9.1-0-36-3
