Australia in Sri Lanka T20I Series - 1st T20I

Sri Lanka v Australia

Sri Lanka won by 35 runs

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

1.6

O'Keefe to Dilshan, no run, another arm ball, this one actually turned in, and hits him in the pad, but is also headed down the leg side

Sri Lanka 12/0   SNJ O'Keefe 1-0-5-0

6.1

O'Keefe to Sangakkara, 1 run, worked around the corner for a single

6.2

O'Keefe to Dilshan, 1 run, risky single after hitting it straight to point, but Hussey's throw is wide, and Haddin has to try and flick it behind his back. A better throw, and Sanga was gone

6.3

O'Keefe to Sangakkara, 1 wide, some turn on this, but well down the leg side

6.3

O'Keefe to Sangakkara, 1 run, pushed into the covers for one

6.4

O'Keefe to Dilshan, 1 run, charges at him and drives him down to long-off for one

6.5

O'Keefe to Sangakkara, 1 run, comes down the track, and pushes this down to long-on

6.6

O'Keefe to Dilshan, no run, Dilshan misses the sweep and is hit right in front of the stumps, but the extra bounce means there isn't even an appeal

Sri Lanka 51/2   SNJ O'Keefe 2-0-11-0

8.1

O'Keefe to Sangakkara, no run, tossed up, accurate, defended back

8.2

O'Keefe to Sangakkara, FOUR, the slog sweep along the ground, what a hard hit, no chance for deep square leg to come around

8.3

O'Keefe to Sangakkara, 1 run, placed wide of long-on but will get just the single

8.4

O'Keefe to Dilshan, no run, makes room, goes inside-out, finds extra cover... on the bounce

8.5

O'Keefe to Dilshan, 1 run, pushed quietly down to long-on

8.6

O'Keefe to Sangakkara, 1 run, short and wide, cut away for a single

Sri Lanka 70/2   SNJ O'Keefe 3-0-18-0
