ICC World Twenty20 - 1st semi final

England v Sri Lanka

England won by 7 wickets (with 24 balls remaining)

8.1

Malinga to Kieswetter, OUT, and he's their man, as Kieswetter falls! Searing, inswinging yorker from Malinga splays the stumps. Kieswetter had picked the fuller length and shaped to drive to long on, but that was simply too good for him, and Malinga has made a mess of his stumps.

C Kieswetter b Malinga 39 (36m 29b 5x4 2x6) SR: 134.48

England 68/1   MJ Lumb 23* (20b 2x4 1x6)   SL Malinga 1.1-0-7-1

9.4

Perera to Lumb, OUT, well, he's just got a little too cute and inventive there. He'd already taken nine from the over, but Lumb shuffles right across to off, exposing all three stumps, and Perera zoned in on leg stump to rattle his timber. They need fives an over, but Lumb got a little greedy there and has paid the price

MJ Lumb b Perera 33 (44m 26b 4x4 1x6) SR: 126.92

England 80/2   KP Pietersen 2* (3b)   NLTC Perera 0.4-0-9-1

14.1

Perera to Collingwood, OUT, Collingwood falls, but that's probably come too late for Sri Lanka. He was looking for the big shot on the leg side, but the bottom hand came through just a little too strongly as he swished across the line. A top edge sent the ball straight up in the air, and Sangakkara behind the stumps called for it

PD Collingwood c †Sangakkara b Perera 10 (14m 13b 0x4 0x6) SR: 76.92

England 113/3   KP Pietersen 25* (17b 1x4 1x6)   NLTC Perera 1.1-0-12-2
