View dismissal WU Tharanga c †Minors b Hurdle 30 67 47 2 1 63.82
11.6 and he strikes, Hurdle! This one is angled down leg stump off a shorter length, then it bounces and moves off the seam, and Tharanga just manages to tickle it into the gloves of a diving Minors behind the stumps! 78/2
View dismissal ST Jayasuriya c Pitcher b Mukuddem 22 50 26 3 0 84.61
8.3 gone! Short and wide, Jayasuriya rocks back on the hard cut but cant beat Pitcher at point, who takes the ball smack in his lap! Well held, and Mukuddem exults, and rightfully so - thats a big wicket to get in a big tournament! 62/1
View dismissal DPMD Jayawardene* c Hurdle b Cann 85 138 90 6 2 94.44
42.1 what a blinder! Brilliant stuff from Hurdle in the deep! Jayawardene slogs this from middle and leg very, very flat in the air over midwicket, and Hurdle, covering good ground on the ropes, dives full length going to to his right and plucks it, one-handed, as it dips on him! 267/4
View dismissal KC Sangakkara c Tucker b Leverock 76 105 83 6 0 91.56
37.3 and he's gone! Leverock gets a wicket and isnt he thrilled! Tossed up outside off stump, down goes Sangakkara in his favourite slog-sweep, and he finds Tucker out on the deep midwicket ropes 228/3
LPC Silva not out 55 48 45 4 0 122.22
View dismissal TM Dilshan c Tucker b Hurdle 12 21 15 1 0 80.00
48.1 full going down leg, he comes forward and paddles it around the corner and Tucker at short fine leg dives to his right and snatches it inches off the ground, very, very well done at the tail end of the innings 305/5
View dismissal MF Maharoof c Hemp b Mukuddem 9 6 5 2 0 180.00
49.3 but not this time! Maharoof has a lusty swing across the line, doesnt time it all that well, and Hemp out in the deep holds his nerve, judges it to perfection, and gobbles it up down there at deep square leg 316/6
RP Arnold not out 2 3 1 0 0 200.00

View dismissal CJ Smith lbw b Vaas 0 3 5 0 0 0.00
0.5 and Vaas gets his man! Classical left-armer's dismissal, right on the money, pitched on off stump and moved in to rap Smith plumb in front of middle and leg, and he's a goner 0/1
View dismissal OL Pitcher b Maharoof 6 53 28 1 0 21.42
11.2 cleaned up! Pitches on a length outside off stump and moves in sharply, off the seam, and beats Pitcher's bat as it comes down angled, to knock back off stump, didnt take long for him to strike! 25/5
View dismissal S Mukuddem c †Sangakkara b Malinga 0 10 4 0 0 0.00
3.1 edged and gone! Lands on a good length just outside off stump and Mukudden, leaden-footed, just hangs the bat out and and the thin edge is snapped up by a gleeful Sangakkara, Bermuda are two down in no time! 2/2
View dismissal DL Hemp c Jayawardene b Malinga 14 18 18 1 0 77.77
7.1 edged and gone! Malinga bangs in a back of a length, 90mph delivery outside off stump that Hemp cant back away from, and the edge flies high off the bat straight to Jayawardene at second slip 20/3
View dismissal IH Romaine* lbw b Malinga 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
7.2 and he doesnt trouble the scorers one bit! Malinga! Fires in a dead straight, full delivery that strikes Romaine plumb in front off leg stump, and the umpire has no hesitation in raising the finger! 20/4
View dismissal JJ Tucker b Muralitharan 4 32 21 1 0 19.04
14.3 bowled! Flighted up a bit quicker this time, Tucker lunges forward in defense, the ball sneaks in between the bat-pad gap and lazily rolls onto the base of off stump 39/7
View dismissal DA Minors c †Sangakkara b Maharoof 4 2 3 1 0 133.33
11.5 and another one bites the dust! Lands on a good length, moves away, and Minors, lunging forward, gets a tickle on it which Sangakkara gladfully snaps up! Bermuda in big trouble! 29/6
View dismissal LOB Cann c †Sangakkara b Maharoof 28 49 32 3 1 87.50
23.2 much shorter and wider this time outside off stump, an impetuous Cann cant resist flaying the bat out at it, he has too go a little too far outside off stump and gets a thin under-edge through to Sangakkara...the fun ends for him! 77/9
View dismissal DCC Borden c sub (KMDN Kulasekara) b Maharoof 6 28 25 1 0 24.00
21.5 gone! A slower delivery, pitched up, and Borden just chips it straight to Kulasekera at mid-off! 64/8
KAD Hurdle not out 6 14 3 0 1 200.00
View dismissal RDM Leverock lbw b Muralitharan 1 5 8 0 0 12.50
24.4 all over! Murali spins one in faster outside off stump, and it spins in to catch a clueless Leverock going back, he's rapped in front of middle and leg and Howell says yes, thats out, sir! 78/10
