World T20 - 22nd match, Group 1

England v Sri Lanka

England won by 6 wickets (with 4 balls remaining)

1.2

Dernbach to MDKJ Perera, OUT, gone! Kusal looks like he feels he didn't hit it, but there was a definite deflection on first viewing. This is a short ball outside leg stump - one that should have been put away really, but Perera goes for the pull too late and seems to have got glove on it, on the way to the keeper.

MDKJ Perera c †Buttler b Dernbach 3 (6m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 4/1   TM Dilshan 1* (2b)   JW Dernbach 0.2-0-0-1

16.4

Jordan to Jayawardene, OUT, gone! England get him finally. This is fullish and on the stumps, Mahela tries to slog that away on the legside with the angle, but he misses again, and the ball crashes into leg stump. The end of an equally impressive and fortuitous innings. There were some great shots between the catching chances.

DPMD Jayawardene b Jordan 89 (86m 51b 11x4 3x6) SR: 174.50

Sri Lanka 149/2   TM Dilshan 51* (45b 3x4 2x6)   CJ Jordan 2.4-0-21-1

17.2

Dernbach to Dilshan, OUT, England have held on to one, and it's Jordan at deep midwicket. Slower ball, over pitched, and Dilshan tries to wallop that over midwicket for six. Not timing the ball has been the story of his innings though, and this one is no different. Jordan settles under it about 10 metres from the fence and pouches it near his chest.

TM Dilshan c Jordan b Dernbach 55 (98m 47b 4x4 2x6) SR: 117.02

Sri Lanka 156/3   NLTC Perera 2* (2b)   JW Dernbach 3.2-0-29-2

18.1

Jordan to Sangakkara, OUT, full ball on off stump. Sanga clears his front leg and tries to bash that straight down the ground as well, but mistimes it terribly and just lobs it up in the air for wide mid off to get under it. Probably wasn't the man for the occasion, it has to be said.

KC Sangakkara c Hales b Jordan 0 (6m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 169/4   NLTC Perera 14* (6b 1x4 1x6)   CJ Jordan 3.1-0-24-2
