13 May 2010 (20-over match)

Bresnan to Jayawardene, FOUR, top start that from Bresnan, shoved down the leg side, Jayawardene clips it easily and firmly away for four down to deep square

Sri Lanka 4/0   DPMD Jayawardene 4* (1b 1x4)   TT Bresnan 0.1-0-4-0

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

Sri Lanka 11/1   TM Dilshan 4* (1b 1x4)   RJ Sidebottom 0.2-0-4-1

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

Sri Lanka 18/1   TM Dilshan 8* (6b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 1.3-0-14-0

Sidebottom to Sangakkara, FOUR, what a stylish start. Fuller outside off, and gracefully driven through point for four

Sri Lanka 24/2   KC Sangakkara 4* (1b 1x4)   RJ Sidebottom 1.1-0-8-1

Broad to Mathews, FOUR, welcome respite for Mathews and Sri Lanka, Broad gets his line all wrong, arrowing a shortish ball down the leg side, and with fine leg up in the circle, it's buffet, Mathews, helps himself to four, angling it past the man up

Sri Lanka 30/3   AD Mathews 4* (5b 1x4)   SCJ Broad 1-0-4-1

Bresnan to Sangakkara, FOUR, lovely shot from the captain, too short and too wide from Bresnan, Sangakkara languidly cuts it through point for four

Sri Lanka 34/3   KC Sangakkara 9* (5b 2x4)   TT Bresnan 2.1-0-20-1

Yardy to Mathews, FOUR, too short and too wide, Mathews accepts a rare gift by cutting firmly down to point for four

Sri Lanka 54/4   AD Mathews 15* (16b 2x4)   MH Yardy 1.5-0-11-0

Yardy to Kapugedera, FOUR, well, that's Yardy's reward for giving it some air, Kapugedera skips down the wicket and drives powerfully for four down the ground

Sri Lanka 79/4   CK Kapugedera 10* (15b 1x4)   MH Yardy 3.5-0-20-0

Sidebottom to Kapugedera, FOUR, finally Kapugedera connects, swishing it down to deep square where, Lumb dives forward looking for the catch, but can't reach it, ends up clutching at nothing and it goes for four. Sidebottom knocks down the fielder with the palm of his eye, thunderous look

Sri Lanka 92/4   CK Kapugedera 16* (24b 2x4)   RJ Sidebottom 2.5-0-16-1

Bresnan to Mathews, FOUR, very good this from Mathews, England have set four men on the leg side boundary, Bresnan lands another slower ball short one, Mathews skips inside the line and scythes past a diving point for four

Sri Lanka 100/5   AD Mathews 41* (35b 3x4 1x6)   TT Bresnan 3.1-0-28-1
