ICC World Twenty20 - 19th match, Group F

Ireland v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 9 runs

0.3

Rankin to Jayasuriya, no run, good first ball just outside off, punched out to the off side

0.4

Rankin to Jayasuriya, FOUR, horrid ball - do not bowl there. Short, wide and it sat up and audibly begged to be hit. Jayasuriya cuts it with tremendous power square of the wicket for the day's first four

0.5

Rankin to Jayasuriya, no run, much better, cutting back on the left-hander who's back and defending on the tips of his toes

0.6

Rankin to Jayasuriya, no run, very good line and length, defended out to the off side

Sri Lanka 4/1   ST Jayasuriya 4* (4b 1x4)

1.4

Johnston to Jayasuriya, no run, blocked off the back foot

1.5

Johnston to Jayasuriya, no run, on leg stump, coming onto the left-hander on the angle, and he chops down on it defensively

1.6

Johnston to Jayasuriya, 1 leg bye, not a convincing stroke. A fuller delivery on leg-stump which he works off his pads, but only at the last moment

Sri Lanka 7/1   ST Jayasuriya 4* (7b 1x4)

2.1

Rankin to Jayasuriya, 1 run, lucky, very lucky! Short ball on leg, he pulls it but mistimes it and it only just beats short fine-leg

2.5

Rankin to Jayasuriya, 1 wide, a waste down the leg side

2.5

Rankin to Jayasuriya, 1 run, again not in control, but pushes it out to the off side

Sri Lanka 11/1   ST Jayasuriya 6* (9b 1x4)

4.1

Rankin to Jayasuriya, FOUR, bang. Uppishly driven with huge amounts of bottom hand, but he placed it in the gap. Three foot either side and he might be back in the pavilion

4.2

Rankin to Jayasuriya, no run, crunched out to the off side

4.3

Rankin to Jayasuriya, 1 leg bye, a single is stolen to the leg side, as he works it off his pads. Encouraging bounce but tennis-ball bounce really; it's not the quickest of pitches

4.5

Rankin to Jayasuriya, FOUR, brilliant. Skips down the pitch and outside leg, before slashing and slapping square of the wicket.

4.6

Rankin to Jayasuriya, no run, good comeback by Rankin, on off stump and it's defended

Sri Lanka 24/2   ST Jayasuriya 14* (14b 3x4)

6.1

West to Jayasuriya, no run, defended on middle

6.2

West to Jayasuriya, no run, good, flat delivery on the off stump, nudged to leg

6.3

West to Jayasuriya, no run, outside off, turning back sharply and it's blocked out to the off side

6.4

West to Jayasuriya, 1 run, squeezed out to the off side - to backward point in fact. Great stop by Johnston

6.6

West to Jayasuriya, no run, flicked to leg where Porterfield, the captain, makes a good and urgent diving stop

Sri Lanka 30/2   ST Jayasuriya 15* (19b 3x4)

7.5

Johnston to Jayasuriya, FOUR, a loopy, slow full toss and the left-hander nearly stepped across to reveal (and lose) his leg-stump! But it's tickled for four to the vacant fine leg

7.6

Johnston to Jayasuriya, 1 run, flogged to leg

Sri Lanka 42/2   ST Jayasuriya 20* (21b 4x4)

8.1

West to Jayasuriya, 1 run, too straight by West and swept past short fine-leg, who parries it to a wider fine-leg

Sri Lanka 43/2   ST Jayasuriya 21* (22b 4x4)

9.1

McCallan to Jayasuriya, 1 run, outside off, dabbed to short fine leg. Great hands

9.3

McCallan to Jayasuriya, FOUR, full on his legs, swept backward of square

9.4

McCallan to Jayasuriya, 1 run, again pulled to leg

Sri Lanka 64/2   ST Jayasuriya 27* (25b 5x4)

10.6

Cusack to Jayasuriya, no run, ooh, run out chance for Ireland as Jayasuriya pushes into the off side and Jayawardene sets off before being sent back, but the throw misses at the non-striker's end

Sri Lanka 74/2   ST Jayasuriya 27* (26b 5x4)

11.4

McCallan to Jayasuriya, OUT, gone! There's the breakthrough for Ireland, Jayasuriya goes for the sweep and is taken on the inside of the front pad...big appeal from McCallan and Tony Hill raises his finger. Jayasuriya isn't happy and that breaks an important stand

ST Jayasuriya lbw b McCallan 27 (50m 27b 5x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

Sri Lanka 81/3   ST Jayasuriya 27 (27b 5x4)
