0.1

Roach to Tharanga, 1 wide, lovely bouncer to start off with. Actually it is called a wide for height. Don't think it was wide, though. Went head-high, in front of his eyes. Tharanga played well by swaying out of its line and dropping his wrists. A harsh call on the wide

0.1

Roach to Tharanga, no run, short of a length, on off, defended

Sri Lanka 7/0   WU Tharanga 0* (4b)
2.1

Roach to Tharanga, 1 run, tucked away off the hip for one

2.3

Roach to Tharanga, FOUR, Tharanga is very good at the cut. Short again, not too wide, but Tharanga creates his own room by the eventual flick of the wrists. Goes over point

2.4

Roach to Tharanga, no run, length ball, angling away, left alone

2.5

Roach to Tharanga, 1 run, dropped by Charles. What is Ramdin thinking now? What is the management thinking now? Length ball outside off, Tharanga drives at it, gets a thick edge, but Charles' weight is on his right foot, and he is late to move to his left. What a miss for West Indies

Sri Lanka 15/0   WU Tharanga 6* (8b 1x4)
3.1

Holder to Tharanga, 1 no ball, short, into the ribs, kept down... but he has overstepped

3.1

Holder to Tharanga, no run, free hit is short too, and Tharanga wants to back away and swing, but he pulls over the ball. Beaten

3.2

Holder to Tharanga, 1 run, fuller ball, crisply push-driven to mid-off where Best allows them a single

3.4

Holder to Tharanga, 1 wide, wide down the leg side

3.4

Holder to Tharanga, no run, on a length, just outside off, pushed to cover

3.5

Holder to Tharanga, no run, the bat has been pulled out of his hands. Short of a length, pitches on off, moves back in, Tharanga wants to defend, but the ball hits the shoulder of the bat, and it bursts out of Tharanga's hands

3.6

Holder to Tharanga, OUT, good catch from li'l Bravo. Charles sighs in relief. Full and wide, Tharanga drives, fails to keep it down, and Bravo lunges to his right to claim this at cover. Holder is pumped

WU Tharanga c Bravo b Holder 7 (18m 14b 1x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 19/1   WU Tharanga 7 (14b 1x4)
