  Italy innings (50 overs maximum) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal TA Kurukulasuriya c †Wright b Darlington 9 17 1 0 52.94
4.4 great delivery outside off, with a touch of away swing, glimpses the outside edge on the way through to the keeper as he prodded at the defence 16/1
View dismissal A Bonora* run out (Muhammad Ghous) 11 51 1 0 21.56
18.1 Baker to Petricola, flicked off the pads in to the leg-side, they set off for a quick single to the fielder, but there's a little hesitation in the running, Bonora is left a little short as Ghous picks the ball up and slings it towards the stumps from square leg, direct hit and he's gone! 55/3
View dismissal NM Northcote c †Wright b Darlington 0 2 0 0 0.00
4.6 gone! Massive breakthrough for USA. Slightly short again and Northcote was in two minds as the ball kissed the outside edge of the bat, and just about carried to the keeper Wright 16/2
View dismissal PA Petricola c Muhammad Ghous b Gordon 42 56 4 0 75.00
22.6 shorter ball again, mis-timed pull shot goes straight to the fielder at midwicket for a simple catch leaning forwards 82/4
View dismissal DG Crowley c Marshall b Gordon 15 21 2 0 71.42
26.3 tried to cut the ball away, thick outside edge flies all the way to the fielder at point for an easy catch 87/5
View dismissal HP Patrizi c Marshall b Gordon 4 17 0 0 23.52
28.3 shorter ball which angles in a little, Patrizi goes to defend and gloves the ball away to backward point for another easy grab, Italy in a spot of bother 90/6
View dismissal MG Raso c Nadkarni b Cush 9 23 1 0 39.13
33.2 goes for a sweep, but top edge up in the air, the ball flies away to square leg as keeper and first slip give chase, and Nadkarni gets two safe hands on the ball 105/7
View dismissal HS Jayasena lbw b Usman Shuja 16 20 3 0 80.00
34.4 fuller ball, and he misses trying to drive, the ball hits him low on the pads and a huge appeal goes up. Umpire Smith raises the finger and that was probably removing off-stump 116/8
View dismissal GRD Munasinghe c Usman Shuja b Gordon 24 32 2 1 75.00
48.6 slower ball, he didn't know quite what to do and chipped the ball up in the air to mid-off for a simple catch 167/9
