Match drawn
8,9,10,11,12 September 2011 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100

Copeland to Dilshan, no run, he gets the outside edge right away as he finds some bounce from a length, it straightens and Dilshan feels at it from the crease, falls short of second slip


Copeland to Dilshan, 1 run, this one comes in, was conspiring to sneak through the gap between bat and pad, dilshan brought down an angled bat a touch outside the line, inside edge goes backward of square leg

Sri Lanka 1/0   TM Dilshan 1* (2b)

Harris to Dilshan, no run, that has got to be close, lovely delivery from Harris, coming in sharply after pitching outside off, strikes him high on the pad, and flies to Haddin, Australia appeal, that was quite high though


Harris to Dilshan, 1 leg bye, trickles fine down leg off the pads as Harris overcooks the angle

Sri Lanka 2/0   TM Dilshan 1* (4b)

Copeland to Dilshan, 1 run, comes in from a length but Dilshan is playing it from the crease and works it on the leg side


Copeland to Dilshan, no run, tempting Dilshan to drive with a fuller one on off, he resists, and pushes towards extra cover


Copeland to Dilshan, 2 runs, uncertain against the one coming in from outside off, does not get forward, has a push from the crease, inside edge goes through square leg


Copeland to Dilshan, no run, better from Dilshan, right forward to a length ball close to off and pushes it towards covers

Sri Lanka 6/1   TM Dilshan 4* (8b)

Copeland to Dilshan, no run, Copeland ending on off stump, all is well with the world, Dilshan gets back to defend


Copeland to Dilshan, no run, this one comes back in a long way from outside off, but Dilshan is confident it will miss off, shoulders arms, he is right as well


Copeland to Dilshan, no run, gets him to finally have a go at one pitched up widish outside off, straight to cover


Copeland to Dilshan, OUT, Dilshan is gone, he thought this one would miss off as well as it curled in sharply, he was wrong this time, just as he shouldered arms, it curved in devilishly to strike top of off, Copeland roars, he has pegged away outside that off stump persistently, and ultimately, found a way through

TM Dilshan b Copeland 4 (22m 12b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Sri Lanka 10/2   TM Dilshan 4 (12b)
