West Indies v Sri Lanka

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

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

Sri Lanka 6/0   DPMD Jayawardene 4* (1b 1x4)   KAJ Roach 0.3-0-5-0

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

Sri Lanka 14/0   WU Tharanga 5* (6b 1x4)   KAJ Roach 1.3-0-12-0

21.2

Sammy to Sangakkara, FOUR, Sanga taking the odd chance now. Dances down the wicket, takes this on a half-volley, and drills it past Sammy for four

Sri Lanka 69/3   KC Sangakkara 18* (40b 1x4)   DJG Sammy 5.2-2-10-0

24.1

Sammy to Sangakkara, FOUR, and resumes with a loose delivery. Short, slow, wide, and cut away for four. Sanga beats extras as the top scorer of the innings

Sri Lanka 87/3   KC Sangakkara 27* (48b 2x4)   DJG Sammy 6.1-2-16-0

31.4

Samuels to Mathews, FOUR, quicker shortish ball, Mathews wants to cut, gets a bottom edge that beats both the keeper and short third man

Sri Lanka 120/4   AD Mathews 16* (17b 1x4 1x6)   MN Samuels 4.4-0-23-1

32.6

Holder to Mathews, FOUR, full, and Mathews was ready this time, and not caught at the back foot. Clears the front leg, and lofts this over mid-off for four

Sri Lanka 129/4   AD Mathews 22* (22b 2x4 1x6)   JO Holder 6-0-27-1

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

Sri Lanka 143/5   BMAJ Mendis 4* (2b 1x4)   KAJ Roach 7.3-2-23-3

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

Sri Lanka 147/5   BMAJ Mendis 8* (4b 2x4)   KAJ Roach 7.5-2-27-3

35.3

Holder to Sangakkara, FOUR, nicely played. Sanga is moving across, which makes Holder angle it a bit wide, but then he stops moving, and nicely opens the face on it to use Holder's pace and send it to third man for four

Sri Lanka 153/6   KC Sangakkara 49* (75b 3x4)   JO Holder 6.3-0-33-1

36.2

Best to Sangakkara, FOUR, short again, and no sting behind it. Takes this from outside off, and pulls this in front of square, and along the ground

Sri Lanka 171/6   KC Sangakkara 60* (78b 4x4 1x6)   TL Best 5.2-0-38-0

37.6

Samuels to Kulasekara, FOUR, lovely shot. Kula backs away and also gets under this full ball, and goes over cover for four

Sri Lanka 188/6   KMDN Kulasekara 14* (7b 1x4 1x6)   MN Samuels 7-0-48-1

38.6

Pollard to Sangakkara, FOUR, lucky for Sanga. Slower ball, outside off, Sanga is down the wicket, but still early into the shot, but the outside edge bisects the keeper and short third man

Sri Lanka 201/6   KC Sangakkara 80* (90b 5x4 1x6)   KA Pollard 2-0-16-0

39.6

Holder to Sangakkara, FOUR, another lucky boundary. Sanga backs away and swings, and gets a thick edge to this length ball, which flies over short third man for four

Sri Lanka 211/7   KC Sangakkara 89* (94b 6x4 1x6)   JO Holder 8-0-50-2
