England tour of Sri Lanka, 2007/08 / Commentary

England in Sri Lanka Test Series - 1st Test

Sri Lanka v England

Sri Lanka won by 88 runs

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100

58.1

Panesar to Malinga, no run, on off stump, firmly smothered

58.2

Panesar to Malinga, no run, a huge, raucous appeal from Panesar to one which raps him on the pads, but it's miles down the leg side

58.3

Panesar to Malinga, no run, ooh left alone outside off. Very well left! Panesar and Prior roar their surprise

58.4

Panesar to Malinga, no run, "aww" is the cry from Prior to one which Lasith smothers

58.5

Panesar to Malinga, no run, close, close - he shuffles dangerously across his stumps

58.6

Panesar to Malinga, no run, bat-padded away

Sri Lanka 186/8   SL Malinga 0* (6b)

59.4

Anderson to Malinga, 1 run, OUT, pulled through midwicket - classic tailend ugliness there - and deep midwicket jogs around. But hold on, there's trouble here if the throw's on target - which it is! And that wraps up Sri Lanka's innings

M Muralitharan run out 1 (3m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 188/10   SL Malinga 1* (7b)
Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100
