ICC World Twenty20 - 1st semi final
England won by 7 wickets (with 24 balls remaining)

13 May 2010 (20-over match)

Sidebottom to Dilshan, FOUR, how about that to start! No need to play yourself in I guess. Dilshan stands tall and slams this from outside off stump through the covers for four


Sidebottom to Dilshan, no run, this should be fun, Dilshan looks in imperious mood. Who needs foot movement when you can stand perfectly still and thrash at the ball. No timing here though, and it trickles to mid off


Sidebottom to Dilshan, no run, good ball this, dragged the length back, Dilshan got into a tangle trying a front-foot pull and didn't connect


Sidebottom to Dilshan, no run, another back-of-a-length delivery, hint of bounce in the track, Dilshan stands tall and prods it into the covers


Sidebottom to Dilshan, no run, short once more, arrowed into the ribs, Dilshan not looking as comfortable on the back foot, fails to connect with his leg-side nudge. All action second over really.

Sri Lanka 11/1   TM Dilshan 4* (5b 1x4)

Bresnan to Dilshan, FOUR, haha, this doesn't look very pretty but it's mighty effective. Regulation length ball, mauled through midwicket, not much timing, but well enough to reach the cow-corner boundary


Bresnan to Dilshan, 1 run, back of a length this time, Dilshan thought about another big slog but in the end guides it away calmly down to third man


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   TM Dilshan 9 (8b 2x4)
