Australia in Sri Lanka T20I Series - 1st T20I

Sri Lanka v Australia

Sri Lanka won by 35 runs

0.1

Lee to Jayawardene, no run, some outswing for Lee, and Jayawardene leaves it alone outside off, just getting his eye in

0.2

Lee to Jayawardene, no run, outswing again, MJ plays with soft hands, but straight back to Lee

0.3

Lee to Jayawardene, 1 run, MJ makes room this time and cuts, it awkwardly bounces just in front of Steve Smith at cover-point, who gets a hand to it, but the ball ricochets for a single

0.5

Lee to Jayawardene, FOUR, MJ seems to be in the mood, makes room early again, gets under a length ball, and lofts it over mid-on without seeming to hit it hard at all. Lovely timing, hit through the line

0.6

Lee to Jayawardene, 1 run, now he gets one short and wide enough to cut, and gets a single to third man

Sri Lanka 7/0   DPMD Jayawardene 6* (5b 1x4)

1.1

O'Keefe to Jayawardene, no run, tossed up outside off, pushed to cover

1.2

O'Keefe to Jayawardene, no run, another flighted delivery, Jayawardene goes for a big sweep, and is beaten

1.3

O'Keefe to Jayawardene, no run, pushes this one through even as Jayawardene backs away, cramps him for a room, the inside edge doesn't make it to the stumps

1.4

O'Keefe to Jayawardene, FOUR, stands his ground this time, and gets a short and wide delivery to cut away for four

1.5

O'Keefe to Jayawardene, 1 run, whoa, that was close, wonder why they didn't appeal properly... this seems to be the arm ball that cramps Jayawardene even as he is backing away to try and chop it square. Seemed to me to have hit the pad first, dead in front of stumps, but Australia are more worried about preventing the leg-bye

Sri Lanka 12/0   DPMD Jayawardene 11* (10b 2x4)

2.1

Lee to Jayawardene, OUT, Timber... The yorker. Jayawardene backs away again, Lee goes full, and in front of leg, Jayawardene gets bat onto it, but only to guide it to the the off stump

DPMD Jayawardene b Lee 11 (8m 11b 2x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 12/1   DPMD Jayawardene 11 (11b 2x4)
