Sri Lanka won by 78 runs
16 August 2011 - day/night match (50-over match)

DJ Hussey to Sangakkara, SIX, Sanga goes for the big drive over long-on and just clears the man at long-on! Superb timing, but still a daring stroke. It was pitched up, Sanga leaned out to the pitch, went down on a knee and heaved him over the fielder.

Sri Lanka 151/1   KC Sangakkara 10* (6b 1x6)   DJ Hussey 4.3-0-34-0

Doherty to Sangakkara, SIX, how did he time that so well? Sanga shimmies out, seemed to be well short of the pitch of the ball, but went through with the straight lofted drive. I initially thought he over-estimated the turn and it seemed to go off the outer half, but it just kept going and cleared the straight boundary with ease!

Sri Lanka 205/1   KC Sangakkara 43* (30b 3x4 2x6)   XJ Doherty 5-0-41-0

Watson to Jayawardene, SIX, Oh Mahela, you thing of absolute beauty! He's standing deep in the crease, and then even as Watto gets into his delivery stride he shuffles across to off stump and squares up for a full length ball. It comes, and he laps it around with sublime timing. Over short fine leg. Over where deep fine leg will be. Over the ropes. By some distance. What stupendous timing!

Sri Lanka 284/7   DPMD Jayawardene 36* (32b 3x4 1x6)   SR Watson 8.2-0-56-0
