ICC World Twenty20 - 1st semi final

England v Sri Lanka

England won by 7 wickets (with 24 balls remaining)

1.1

Sidebottom to Jayasuriya, OUT, Sidebottom strikes straight away! Jayasuriya departs, very sad to see a great player reduced to this. Pitched up, fraction of movement away, regulation outside edge and neatly pouched at second slip

ST Jayasuriya c Collingwood b Sidebottom 1 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Sri Lanka 7/1   DPMD Jayawardene 5* (3b 1x4)   RJ Sidebottom 0.1-0-0-1

2.6

Bresnan to Dilshan, OUT, gone this time! Well, Dilshan was playing a shot a ball, and it has not come off. Short again, he tried to hook it off the front foot, but only managed a looping top edge, Wright hustled in from the deep square boundary and dived forward to take a smart catch

TM Dilshan c Wright b Bresnan 9 (7m 8b 2x4 0x6) SR: 112.50

Sri Lanka 20/2   DPMD Jayawardene 9* (6b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 2-0-16-1

4.1

Broad to Jayawardene, OUT, dream start from Broad! He gets the key wicket! Jayawardene falls, just nicking a rising delivery from outside off stump through to the keeper, real Test-style dismissal there. England all over this at the moment

DPMD Jayawardene c †Kieswetter b Broad 10 (20m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 111.11

Sri Lanka 26/3   KC Sangakkara 5* (4b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 0.1-0-0-1

8.6

Swann to Sangakkara, OUT, big trouble now for Sri Lanka! Sangakkara departs! Swann is creating all sorts of problems out there, another flighted delivery, Sangakkara edged down the crease and chipped a drive down to long off, didn't get enough of it, Pietersen skirts around and collects the catch

KC Sangakkara c Pietersen b Swann 16 (24m 19b 2x4 0x6) SR: 84.21

Sri Lanka 47/4   AD Mathews 10* (14b 1x4)   GP Swann 2-0-5-1

16.3

Broad to Kapugedera, OUT, well that was coming. A touch fuller, Kapugedera cleared his front leg away and mowed at the ball, couldn't get much of it and it goes straight to Bresnan at mid off

CK Kapugedera c Bresnan b Broad 16 (30m 27b 2x4 0x6) SR: 59.25

Sri Lanka 93/5   AD Mathews 36* (33b 2x4 1x6)   SCJ Broad 2.3-0-11-2

19.5

Sidebottom to Mathews, 1 run, OUT, another good ball, no mistake yet from Sidebottom, Mathews shoves it down to long on, comes back for a second, but he looks out of gas, the throw comes in one bounce, and beats Mathews

AD Mathews run out 58 (68m 45b 3x4 1x6) SR: 128.88

Sri Lanka 126/6   NLTC Perera 7* (8b)   RJ Sidebottom 3.5-0-22-1
