England tour of Sri Lanka, 2007/08 / Commentary

Overs 1-50  | Overs 51-100  | Overs 101-150

9.1

Harmison to Tharanga, no run, on middle-and-off, the batsman shuffles to leg a little nervously, angling it out to the off side

9.2

Harmison to Tharanga, 2 runs, turned off his pads, aerially, down to fine leg

9.3

Harmison to Tharanga, no run, a bouncer but it doesn't get up at all and Tharanga ducks beneath it, the ball almost shaving his helmet. Very close to heading that into the back of the net

9.4

Harmison to Tharanga, no run, dropped - oh dear. He's dropped a clanger has Collingwood at second slip. A beautiful delivery outside the off stump, Tharanga slicing it to Collingwood's right who takes his eye off the ball and somehow clangs it. Dreadful

9.5

Harmison to Tharanga, no run, nudged out to cover

9.6

Harmison to Tharanga, no run, fast, on off stump and defended

Sri Lanka 34/0   SJ Harmison 1-0-2-0

12.1

Harmison to Tharanga, 1 leg bye, short of a length, defended off his hip

12.2

Harmison to Sangakkara, 1 run, this sits up on Kumar who rides the bounce, dropping it to leg and they scamper a single

12.3

Harmison to Tharanga, no run, very cautiously defended off the back foot

12.4

Harmison to Tharanga, no run, ooh, an inside edge here from Tharanga. Absolutely no feet movement

12.5

Harmison to Tharanga, no run, short of a length, a bit too short really and Tharanga jumps back to defend

12.6

Harmison to Tharanga, no run, sweetly driven straight to mid-off. Very neatly timed

Sri Lanka 40/1   SJ Harmison 2-0-3-0

14.1

Harmison to Tharanga, no run, nudged to leg

14.2

Harmison to Tharanga, no run, left alone outside off

14.3

Harmison to Tharanga, no run, a good length and reasonable line, just outside the off stump. Defended pretty safely out to cover

14.4

Harmison to Tharanga, OUT, he's gone! Tharanga's rapped on the pads, Rauf takes his time - and up goes the finger. That would have hit the top of the off stump, though replays show the ball pitched outside the leg stump. A dodgy decision, again, but very well bowled by Harmison

WU Tharanga lbw b Harmison 16 (72m 42b 2x4 0x6) SR: 38.09

14.5

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, low full toss - the slower ball from Harmison I think. Excellent thinking and this is a very encouraging start indeed from him

14.6

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, FOUR, edged past the slips for four down to third man. Guided, rather than edged - but again, a very good line

Sri Lanka 48/2   SJ Harmison 3-0-7-1

16.1

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, short of a length, Jayawardene is compact in defence

16.2

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, the Harmy of yore, here. Well wide of the off stump and bouncing wider

16.3

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, FOUR, what a shot that is - the stroke of the day from Jayawardene. The most elegant of drives, on the up, through mid-off for four. Classic

16.4

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, FOUR, that's a poor ball I'm afraid, far too full and Jayawardene creams it through extra cover for four. Beautiful stroke No.2

16.5

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, left alone outside off this time

16.6

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, good line this time and left alone

Sri Lanka 64/2   SJ Harmison 4-0-15-1

19.1

Harmison to Sangakkara, no run, too wide to trouble Kumar who shoulders arms with ease

19.2

Harmison to Sangakkara, 1 run, excellent length from Harmison, beating Kumar who tries to nudge it to leg but gets a leading edge. They scamper for a single

19.3

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, gentle pace, left alone outside off

19.4

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, excellent line from Harmison here. Just short of a length and outside Jayawardene's off stump who cautiously shoulders arms

19.5

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, well wide of the off stump, and really rather slow

19.6

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 leg bye, flicked off his pads

Sri Lanka 74/2   SJ Harmison 5-0-16-1

21.1

Harmison to Sangakkara, no run, wide of the off stump; left alone

21.2

Harmison to Sangakkara, 2 runs, a lazy sort of drive, leaning on it through the covers

21.3

Harmison to Sangakkara, no run, huge appeal from Harmisoin who raps Sangakkara on the pads but it's outside leg...

21.4

Harmison to Sangakkara, no run, good pace from Harmison who is tearing in now, but it's easily left alone outside off

21.5

Harmison to Sangakkara, no run, Harmison bends his back here and Sangakkara evades a bouncer with ease

21.6

Harmison to Sangakkara, no run, horrid delivery, well wide of the off stump

Sri Lanka 80/2   SJ Harmison 6-0-18-1

23.1

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, a bouncing, leg-side drifter

23.2

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 run, good bouncer which Jayawardene helps around the corner.

23.3

Harmison to Sangakkara, FOUR, on his leg stump, Sangakkara clips it neatly for four to fine-leg

23.4

Harmison to Sangakkara, no run, much better line but Sangakkara's up to the mark and refuses to be lured into driving

23.5

Harmison to Sangakkara, no run, wide again

23.6

Harmison to Sangakkara, no run, left alone with ease

Sri Lanka 88/2   SJ Harmison 7-0-23-1

25.1

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 leg bye, ooh well bowled, a good bouncer which hurries Jayawardene who fends it to leg

25.2

Harmison to Sangakkara, no run, a little too wide to trouble Sangakkara

25.3

Harmison to Sangakkara, no run, left alone

25.4

Harmison to Sangakkara, 1 run, good length but it's on his legs and he literally just defends it, with a dead bat, for a single to midwicket

25.5

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, again wide enough to be ignored

25.6

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, on middle, defended

Sri Lanka 91/2   SJ Harmison 8-0-24-1

45.1

Harmison to Sangakkara, OUT, gone! The bouncer from Harmison, Sangakkara hooks but can't control it as the ball skies to Monty Panesar at deep square leg who takes a safe catch, and celebrates like a millionaire

KC Sangakkara c Panesar b Harmison 46 (151m 95b 7x4 0x6) SR: 48.42

45.2

Harmison to Silva, no run, greets him with a bouncer

45.3

Harmison to Silva, no run, nudged to leg. A good short ball

45.4

Harmison to Silva, no run, a bouncer again but this hardly gets up at all, and the batsman sways out of the way. That really wasn't too far away from his off stump

45.5

Harmison to Silva, no run, excellent delivery, very fine bowling here. Outside the off stump in the corridor of uncertainty, but Silva leaves alone

45.6

Harmison to Silva, no run, good length again, and it takes the splice of the bat - the ball zooting out to gully

Sri Lanka 132/3   SJ Harmison 9-1-24-2

47.1

Harmison to Silva, no run, extra pace and big bounce here. Harmison is steaming in! Great to see. Left alone by Silva

47.2

Harmison to Silva, no run, a waste down the leg side

47.3

Harmison to Silva, no run, good line in the channel but Silva won't be tempted

47.4

Harmison to Silva, no run, nudged to leg

47.5

Harmison to Silva, no run, well bowled - pitching it right up, but Silva cracks it back to Harmison

47.6

Harmison to Silva, no run, good one which rises up nastily on Silva who defends

Sri Lanka 132/3   SJ Harmison 10-2-24-2

49.1

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, punched to point

49.2

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, short of a length, rising onto the right hander who stands tall to defend

49.3

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, blocked off the back foot

49.4

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 run, very full but on his toes and he it neatly to leg

49.5

Harmison to Silva, no run, down the leg side

49.6

Harmison to Silva, no run, firmly defended but that's a good line outside the off stump

Sri Lanka 134/3   SJ Harmison 11-2-25-2

51.1

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, very wide of the off stump. Harmy of yore, there

51.2

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, back and across from Jayawardene, defending on the back foot

51.3

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, wide enough to be left alone, and so he does

51.4

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 run, turned off his hip, aerially, to Sidebottom at fine-leg. Nasty delivery - this has been a very impressive day from Harmison

51.5

Harmison to Silva, no run, left alone on length alone, but a good line from Harmison

51.6

Harmison to Silva, no run, short and wild, a bouncer but a little too straight

Sri Lanka 136/3   SJ Harmison 12-2-26-2

53.1

Harmison to Silva, no run, left alone outside off

53.2

Harmison to Silva, OUT, fantastic delivery! Silva came forward a little tentatively, pushing at it meekly, and with the extra bounce from Harmison the ball flew off a thick edge to Bell at first slip who took a simple catch

LPC Silva c Bell b Harmison 1 (36m 26b 0x4 0x6) SR: 3.84

53.3

Harmison to Dilshan, 1 run, ooh good start from Harmison, fired into the stump and he jabs down on it

53.4

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, ooh close! Almost caught and bowled there as Jayawardene was too early on the drive, mistiming it back to Harmison but it fell short

53.5

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, touch too short and wide, left alone

53.6

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 run, squeezed out past gully for his fifty

Sri Lanka 140/4   SJ Harmison 13-2-28-3

55.1

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, strays down leg first up, "Catch it" comes a useful cry from close in, as Prior jumps to his left to take the ball

55.2

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, cuts back in from outside off, threatening to cut Jayawardene in half, it's just outside so any shout would have been turned down

55.3

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 run, a tip-and-run into the covers this time

55.4

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, cut in a touch again, Dilshan dealing with his first ball of the day comfortably

57.5

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, comes back in at him from outside off, played down without fuss

57.6

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, pushed back towards the bowler

Sri Lanka 153/4   SJ Harmison 15-3-29-3

59.1

Harmison to Dilshan, 4 wides, bouncer, but slightly down leg, and in fact that's called a wide as it zooms back over off, Prior given no chance to hold that one, Bell sets off in pursuit

59.1

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, a good nipper-backer-inner as they don't say, Jayawardene content to leave that one

59.2

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 bye, just down off, the ball nipping in again and bouncing just in front of Prior, who affects a long barrier position, misses it and it leaps over his shoulder

59.3

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, straight down off this time

59.4

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, right over the right hander's bat

61.1

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, defended on the front foot this time

61.2

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, good carry through from a length delivery outside off, the batsman content to leave well alone

61.3

Harmison to Dilshan, 4 runs, shocker of a misfield from Vaughan, never the best fielder, a sloppy effort at mid-on, aiming wide of the stumps and the ball runs on for overthrows

61.4

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, hostile from Harmison, possibly taking out the frustration of the last ball, the ball bouncing through straight and the batsman nearly ducks into it

61.5

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, left alone outside off

61.6

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, driven into the covers, shouts of "No, no, no" providing a clue

Sri Lanka 167/4   SJ Harmison 17-3-37-3

63.1

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 no ball, left alone outside off this time

63.4

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, turned towards the leg side

63.4

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, pushed through outside off, good line and length, but easily left

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, strayed down leg, Prior rolling round to take a tidy pickup, commando style

63.6

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 run, nipped in at him, but on a leg line, the ball swished into short midwicket

Sri Lanka 172/4   SJ Harmison 18-3-39-3

75.1

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, 3 runs, good length but a bit of a floater and Jayawardene clumps it, without really timing it, to long-on

75.2

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, short and a little wide of the off stump

75.3

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, short of a length again but a tighter line, and he steps back and across to punch it out to cover

75.4

Harmison to Dilshan, 2 runs, poor delivery down the leg side, but neatly played by Dilshan who rode the bounce and clipped it smartly off his hip

75.5

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, defended on the back foot

75.6

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, he's hit him! I've got far too excited by that - Dilshan thought it was going to bounce more than it did, ducked into it and headed it into the back of the net. The net being the covers and he seems fine, too. No injury

Sri Lanka 216/4   SJ Harmison 19-3-44-3

77.1

Harmison to Dilshan, 1 wide, ooh he's bent his back there, a big bouncer and it leaps off the pitch with tennis-ball-like bounce. Very short indeed, and Prior does well to take it - leaping up high

77.1

Harmison to Dilshan, 1 no ball, a no-ball which is cracked into the covers

77.1

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, fuller this time and a good line from Harmison. Dilshan aggressively smacks it back to the bowler who is desperate to throw down his stumps, but can't collect the ball and opts instead for a gnarly stare at him

77.2

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, left alone outside off, Dilshan just dropping his hands

77.3

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, too short and wide

77.4

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, wider of the crease this time and a much better line, spearing into Dilshan who defends

77.5

Harmison to Dilshan, 1 run, flicked to mid-on; Bopara dives to stop and throws down the stumps as the batsmen take a sharp single. Terrific energy from Bopara. He missed, but still - excellent commitment

77.6

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 run, flicked down to fine-leg

Sri Lanka 220/4   SJ Harmison 20-3-48-3

79.1

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 run, calmly turned down to fine leg with a flick of the wrists

79.2

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, loose bouncer down the leg side which is ducked beneath comfortably

79.3

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, pushed to the leg side

79.4

Harmison to Dilshan, 1 leg bye, and he's hit him again. A rather confident stroke from Dilshan who is hit on the helmet trying to pull. Again he jogs through for a single seemingly oblivious to, well, everything

79.5

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 leg bye, ooh a huge appeal from Harmison who finds one to nip back sharply on the right hander. Harper is unmoved. Not a bad shout at all

79.6

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, an angry Harmison fires down a quick bouncer but it's down the leg side

Sri Lanka 226/4   SJ Harmison 21-3-49-3

91.1

Harmison to Dilshan, 1 run, drifting down the leg side and clipped to deep square leg. Monty fields with typical lamb-like exuberance

91.2

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, wide enough of the off stump to be left alone

91.3

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, much fuller length but again the batsman can leave this comfortably alone

91.4

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, FOUR, driven in the air but past gully and down to third man. Again, Jayawardene didn't really get to the pitch of the delivery but...with such a good eye, he controlled it sufficiently

91.5

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, a beauty from Harmison who cannot believe his misfortune. Cutting back into the right hander who left it alone at the last minute - very nearly losing his off bail in the process

91.6

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, tighter line again - good bowling, this, and it's cut out to cover

Sri Lanka 263/4   SJ Harmison 22-3-54-3

93.1

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, left alone outside off

93.2

Harmison to Dilshan, 1 run, again, not really the right line - on leg stump and nudged off the pad

93.3

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, too full; too wide of the off stump and easily ignored

93.4

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, miles wide of the off stump

93.5

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, oh this is Harmy back to his disappointing best. Miles down the leg side

93.6

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 run, cor, ripper of a delivery rapping him on the knuckles. That's more like it. Jayawardene fends to leg

Sri Lanka 268/4   SJ Harmison 23-3-56-3

95.1

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, horrid, misdirected bouncer down the leg side

95.2

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, gentle pace outside off, left alone

95.3

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, quicker this time, and a much fuller length. Clobbered to mid-on

95.4

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, on his legs, again punched to mid-on, again he can't find the gap

95.5

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, wide, wide, wide of the off stump and left alone. Couldn't have reached it with a telescopic bat

95.6

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, a swing and a miss. Had he connected, that was headed for the ocean

Sri Lanka 272/4   SJ Harmison 24-4-56-3

97.1

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, another leg-side bouncer

97.2

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, short and much too wide

97.3

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, guided out to cover

97.4

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, down the leg side

97.5

Harmison to Dilshan, no run, he shapes to play at this but instead watches it sail past

97.6

Harmison to Dilshan, FOUR, that's a heck of a shot! He has absolutely cracked this, on the up, through the covers for four. Steve Waugh-esque

Sri Lanka 280/4   SJ Harmison 25-4-60-3

103.1

Harmison to Vaas, no run, pushed right up there, defended tightly forward at the last second

103.2

Harmison to Vaas, no run, across the left hander, the ball keeping deceptively low, Vaas poking over it

103.3

Harmison to Vaas, 1 run, curving in to the left hander, down leg, clipped away in the air, Bopara clearing up following a few bounces

103.4

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, tried to rush off the legs but was through with the shot too quickly

103.5

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, pushed off the back foot

103.6

107.1

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, 1 run, a quick single this time

107.2

Harmison to Vaas, no run, worked in front of square

107.3

Harmison to Vaas, 1 run, a sharp delivery rearing like a cobra but Vaas negates the venom with a fist down

107.4

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, down leg, and there's nearly a chance of a strangle

107.5

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, 2 runs, outside off, driven nearly all the way, but Bopara pulls it back just in time

107.6

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, strayed down leg, blatant one-day wide, but this is a Test dot

Sri Lanka 320/6   SJ Harmison 28-4-68-3

127.1

Harmison to Vaas, no run, down the leg side, Harmison implores Prior to catch it, which he does, but Vaas didn't get an edge on it

127.2

Harmison to Vaas, no run, dabbed out to the off side

127.3

Harmison to Vaas, FOUR, cor, that's a ripper of a stroke, pulled with immense power in front of square for four. What a stroke!

127.4

Harmison to Vaas, no run, wide of the off stump and a good ball which cuts back into Vaas. He tries to dab it down to third man and misses

127.5

Harmison to Vaas, no run, firmly behind it

127.6

Harmison to Vaas, no run, "yeah!" is the cry from Prior who shuffles to his right to take this shorter delivery but Vaas was again nowhere near it

Sri Lanka 384/6   SJ Harmison 29-4-72-3

129.1

Harmison to Vaas, no run, short, a snorter which climbed and struck Vaas on the hands as he tried to get out of the way, dropping safely towards the gully

129.2

Harmison to Vaas, no run, wide outside off stump

129.3

Harmison to Vaas, FOUR, wide and spanked back past Harmison and there's no chance for Panesar who gives a half-hearted chase

129.5

Harmison to Vaas, no run, back and pushed into the covers

129.6

Sri Lanka 390/6   SJ Harmison 30-4-78-3

131.1

Harmison to Vaas, 1 run, dropped no more than two or three yards into the off side and quick calling allows a single, Harmison in his follow through can't prevent it

131.2

Harmison to DPMD Jayawardene, no run, bounce and some movement, Jayawardene plays off the back foot and misses
