14 August 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

Lee to Dilshan, FOUR, top shot, meets this back-of-a-length delivery with a full face, timing it well, between the bowler and mid-on

Sri Lanka 6/0   TM Dilshan 5* (7b 1x4)   B Lee 1.1-0-5-0

Lee to Dilshan, FOUR, if the last ball was persuaded, this has been forced for four. Makes room and crashes this through covers. Beats the short extra cover

Sri Lanka 10/0   TM Dilshan 9* (8b 2x4)   B Lee 1.2-0-9-0

Bollinger to Dilshan, FOUR, smashed, on the up, lands on a good length and he flays it imperiously past extra cover

Sri Lanka 17/0   TM Dilshan 16* (12b 3x4)   DE Bollinger 1.2-0-5-0

Bollinger to Tharanga, FOUR, nicely timed, picked the gap very well, punched firmly off the front foot, on the up, past extra cover for a boundary

Sri Lanka 22/0   WU Tharanga 4* (10b 1x4)   DE Bollinger 2-0-10-0

Watson to Dilshan, FOUR, Crack. Gentle short delivery, wide enough, and Dilshan gives it the treatment square on off side

Sri Lanka 26/0   TM Dilshan 21* (16b 4x4)   SR Watson 0.2-0-4-0

Watson to Tharanga, FOUR, length ball on the pads, not the ball to bowl to subcontinent batsmen with the fine leg in the circle. Tharanga places this wide of the man

Sri Lanka 33/0   WU Tharanga 9* (18b 2x4)   SR Watson 1.2-0-11-0

Johnson to Jayawardene, FOUR, good delivery first up, pitches on a length, middle and off, seams away a touch, takes a thick edge, but Mahela's soft hands make sure it goes straight into the ground. And also wide of slip

Sri Lanka 45/2   DPMD Jayawardene 4* (1b 1x4)   MG Johnson 1.3-1-5-1

Doherty to Sangakkara, FOUR, and what a peach... this drifts away from Sanga, and then turns and spits... gets a thin inside edge, and Haddin is nowhere close to the ball. He appeals for something, though. Only he knows what

Sri Lanka 116/4   KC Sangakkara 43* (64b 1x4 1x6)   XJ Doherty 8.1-0-37-1

Bollinger to Mathews, FOUR, bouncer, angling across, pulled by Mathews, into the ground, but Watson from deep square leg has to put in a big chase to prevent it from reaching the midwicket boundary. Even then he touches the rope with the ball in hand, when putting in the slide. First boundary for Mathews

Sri Lanka 159/6   AD Mathews 35* (61b 1x4)   DE Bollinger 7.4-2-27-1

Lee to Kulasekara, FOUR, Nice shot. Kula sees the short one, backs away, and - from outside leg - places this between point and short third man. Sri Lanka finally get a move on, but is this too little and too late?

Sri Lanka 171/7   KMDN Kulasekara 14* (7b 1x4 1x6)   B Lee 7.4-0-38-2

Lee to Kulasekara, FOUR, goes for the wide yorker, Kula swings at it, gets the toe edge for a fine fine deflection for four

Sri Lanka 179/8   KMDN Kulasekara 20* (13b 2x4 1x6)   B Lee 8.3-0-44-2

Bollinger to Kulasekara, FOUR, slower ball, angled across him, and he chips this over extra cover. A nice inside-out shot

Sri Lanka 186/8   KMDN Kulasekara 25* (16b 3x4 1x6)   DE Bollinger 9.2-2-33-3

Watson to BAW Mendis, FOUR, short and wide, and superbly cut away, suitably late to beat backward point. You won't be able rub that smile off his face

Sri Lanka 202/9   BAW Mendis 5* (3b 1x4)   SR Watson 4.5-0-27-0
