West Indies Tri-Nation Series - 5th match

West Indies v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 39 runs (D/L method)

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

0.2

Roach to Tharanga, 1 leg bye, shortish again, on the pads, tucked away for one

0.3

Roach to Jayawardene, FOUR, short, rib high, 134ks. Meat and drink for Jayawardene. He waits for it, gets inside the line, and taps it fine of fine leg

0.4

Roach to Jayawardene, 1 run, stays short of a length, 136ks, angling in, drops it at his toes and takes a single

0.5

Roach to Tharanga, no run, fuller, on off, pushed to mid-off

0.6

Roach to Tharanga, no run, length ball, on the pads, clipped to midwicket

Sri Lanka 7/0   KAJ Roach 1-0-6-0

2.1

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

2.2

Roach to Jayawardene, 1 run, full, angling in, pushed wide of mid-on 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

2.6

Roach to Jayawardene, no run, short of a length, on the stumps, defended

Sri Lanka 15/0   KAJ Roach 2-0-13-0

4.1

Roach to Jayawardene, OUT, the bouncer. That has sconed Jayawardene. Gibson and Dwayne Bravo have enjoyed it too. But they are checking it for a no-ball. What a sharp short ball. Chest high it comes, Jayawardene wants to pull, gets a thick top edge into the helmet, and the ball ricochets to point. The umpire asks Jayawardene to wait. Bravo and Gibson run back in to check on the telly. Roach's foot has landed just a centimetre behind the line and then slipped away. Touch and go, but fine as far as the no-ball is concerned

DPMD Jayawardene c Smith b Roach 7 (21m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 58.33

4.2

Roach to Chandimal, no run, nearly three wickets in three balls for West Indies. This one seams back in and goes between bat and pad, but there is a loud click as the ball passes. Turns out it has gone off the pad. Umpire Llong is spot on

4.3

Roach to Chandimal, 1 run, presses forward to push this wide of cover for one

4.4

Roach to Sangakkara, no run, short of a length, on off, defended off the back foot

4.5

Roach to Sangakkara, no run, fuller, on middle and off, Sangakkara is still on the back foot when he defends

4.6

Roach to Sangakkara, 1 run, short of a length, middle and leg, pushed into the on side for one

Sri Lanka 21/2   KAJ Roach 3-0-15-1

6.1

Roach to Chandimal, no run, short of a length, hits high on Chandimal's defensive bat

6.2

Roach to Chandimal, OUT, top of off. Timbah. Beauty. Jaffa. Poor shot, though. Pushes forward to a length ball and drives away from the body. The ball jags back in, beats the inside edge, and goes through the gate to hit the top of off. Looking at the replays. Chandimal's first instinct was to go back, and then he pressed forward. Not full committed

LD Chandimal b Roach 2 (9m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

6.3

Roach to Thirimanne, no run, dug in short, rising towards the chest. Thirimanne stands tall to defend

8.3

Roach to Thirimanne, no run, wide length ball, left alone

8.4

Roach to Thirimanne, 1 run, lovely square-drive, he leans into a length ball, and drives with a slightly open face. Darren Bravo makes a diving save at point, and keeps them down to one

8.5

10.5

Roach to Thirimanne, 3 runs, pitched up full, Thirimanne is equal to it. He is not caught back after the short barrage. Driven between the stumps and mid-off. Pollard gives excellent chase, and slides to keep it in

Sri Lanka 40/3   KAJ Roach 7-2-19-2

34.1

Roach to Mathews, OUT, and gone first ball. Mathews has taken one risk too many. Mathews backs away a long way, Roach follows him with a length ball. Mathews tries to go over cover/point, but doesn't get enough bat, and is caught at point

AD Mathews c Smith b Roach 30 (29m 27b 2x4 2x6) SR: 111.11

34.2

Roach to Mendis, no run, full, outside off, pushed to straight extra cover

34.3

Roach to Mendis, FOUR, sharp bouncer. This has shocked and jolted Mendis, although he gets four fr it. This hits the bat even before he realises, and flies over the keeper's head. Almost takes the bat along with it

34.4

Roach to Mendis, no run, length ball, accurate, pushed to mid-on

34.5

Roach to Mendis, FOUR, nicely played. Short of a length, angling away, punched away square, to the left of third man. Best from third man does well to reach the ball, but can't keep it in

34.6

Roach to Mendis, OUT, Roach has four, Mendis doesn't like it. He is moving across, ends up moving too far. Roach bowls short of a length, and on the stumps. Mendis has already got inside the line, and the ball passes over the stumps as he jabs at it. Roach appeals for the catch, umpire Llong upholds the appeal. Mendis suggests he hasn't gloved it. Replays are not clear. He might have missed it here

BMAJ Mendis c †Charles b Roach 8 (3m 5b 2x4 0x6) SR: 160.00

Sri Lanka 147/6   KAJ Roach 8-2-27-4
