West Indies Tri-Nation Series - 5th match

West Indies v Sri Lanka

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

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   DPMD Jayawardene 7* (11b 1x4)   JO Holder 2-0-5-1

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

Sri Lanka 19/2   KC Sangakkara 0* (0b)   KAJ Roach 2.1-0-13-1

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

Sri Lanka 29/3   KC Sangakkara 2* (6b)   KAJ Roach 3.2-0-15-2

25.5

Samuels to Thirimanne, OUT, and Samuels strikes early again. The quicker one without warning. Thirimanne is looking to work this shortish delivery to leg, but it hurries off, and hits the inside edge and bursts through into the stumps

HDRL Thirimanne b Samuels 23 (78m 73b 0x4 0x6) SR: 31.50

Sri Lanka 93/4   KC Sangakkara 29* (50b 2x4)   MN Samuels 1.5-0-4-1

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

Sri Lanka 139/5   KC Sangakkara 44* (73b 2x4)   KAJ Roach 7.1-2-19-3

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   KC Sangakkara 44* (73b 2x4)   KAJ Roach 8-2-27-4

39.1

Holder to Kulasekara, OUT, meanwhile Kula is gone. Holder follows the batsman who is backing away, and the little extra bounce means Kula has got too much under the ball and skied it. Bravo runs in from long-on, and to his left, and also calls for it, and avoids the converging fielder from long-off to take a safe catch

KMDN Kulasekara c Bravo b Holder 14 (20m 9b 1x4 1x6) SR: 155.55

Sri Lanka 201/7   KC Sangakkara 80* (90b 5x4 1x6)   JO Holder 7.1-0-41-2

40.6

Pollard to Senanayake, OUT, slower bouncer, Senanayake throws his bat it, gets another edge, and this time Bravo - wearing sunglasses, mind you - has enough time to come under it and catch it

SMSM Senanayake c Bravo b Pollard 7 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 116.66

Sri Lanka 219/8   KC Sangakkara 90* (95b 6x4 1x6)   KA Pollard 3-0-24-1
