ICC World Twenty20, 2007/08 / Commentary

ICC World Twenty20 - 22nd match, Group F

Australia v Sri Lanka

Australia won by 10 wickets (with 58 balls remaining)

0.1

Lee to Tharanga, 1 run, streaky, but off the mark. That was on leg stump, and flicked airborne in the direction of square leg. Didn't go to hand though

0.5

Lee to Tharanga, 1 run, fast and full again, nudged into the covers

Sri Lanka 3/1   WU Tharanga 2* (2b)

1.1

Bracken to Tharanga, no run, swinging delivery, a foot outside off, and Tharanga leaves well alone

1.2

Bracken to Tharanga, no run, fuller and straighter, and defended into the covers. A brief thought of a single, but with three Aussies hurtling in to field, Sangakkara has other ideas

1.3

Bracken to Tharanga, 2 runs, a slog, straight through the line of the ball and over the covers. Not perfectly timed and the ball plugs in the outfield

1.4

Bracken to Tharanga, no run, lovely response, nipping past a limp outside edge. Well pitched up, and a hint of movement off the track

1.5

Bracken to Tharanga, no run, that's a filthy mow - Tharanga makes room and is well beaten as the ball whistles over leg stump

1.6

Bracken to Tharanga, OUT, that dismissal was somewhat telegraphed. He was dancing around at the crease and, in attempting to whip to leg, found only a leading edge. Brett Lee at deep point swallows a looping chance, and Sri Lanka are in deep trouble now

WU Tharanga c Lee b Bracken 4 (10m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 9/2   WU Tharanga 4 (8b)
