ICC World Twenty20 - 8th match, Group C

Kenya v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 172 runs

2.6

Odoyo to Tharanga, OUT, The middle stump has been pegged back. Revenge for Odoyo. Fuller in length, on the middle stump line, straightens a touch and Tharanga went for an ambitious pull shot, missed it completely and heard the death knell. The previous delivery was much shorter and he could unfurl the pull but this was bad shot selection

WU Tharanga b Odoyo 10 (12m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 90.90

Sri Lanka 19/1   ST Jayasuriya 6* (7b 1x4)   TM Odoyo 2-0-8-1

Kamande to Sangakkara, OUT, the leg stump has been pegged back. Full and straight on the leg stump line, Sangakkara tries to paddle it away but misses it completely.

Sri Lanka 94/2   ST Jayasuriya 49* (29b 5x4 2x6)   JK Kamande 0.3-0-1-1

14.2

Odhiambo to Jayasuriya, OUT, Done in by the slower one. Full and on the middle and leg, Jayasuriya tried to pull it over square leg but instead edges a skier towards mid-on. It has been a brutal knock from Jayasuriya.

ST Jayasuriya c sub (AO Suji) b Odhiambo 88 (65m 44b 11x4 4x6) SR: 200.00
