ICC World Twenty20 - 19th match, Group F

Ireland v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 9 runs

1.1

Johnston to Sangakkara, 1 wide, poor start - a leg-side wide

1.1

Johnston to Sangakkara, no run, on the off stump, Sangakkara comes tentatively forward, shuffling into a defensive

1.2

Johnston to Sangakkara, no run, very good delivery, on off stump with just a hint of shape back into the left-hander. It's defended again to mid-off

1.3

Johnston to Sangakkara, 1 run, uppercut - but he's placed it nicely, and it drops short of third man

Sri Lanka 6/1   KC Sangakkara 1* (3b)

2.2

Rankin to Sangakkara, no run, defended on the back foot. Better line this time, just outside off

2.3

Rankin to Sangakkara, no run, good length, cuts back into him and jags nastily into his midriff. In fact, he got an inside edge into his midriff, and very nearly into his family jewels

2.4

Rankin to Sangakkara, 1 run, clipped with greater authority to backward square leg

2.6

Rankin to Sangakkara, 1 run, flicked down to fine-leg

Sri Lanka 12/1   KC Sangakkara 3* (7b)

3.1

Johnston to Sangakkara, no run, squeezed out to the off side, but another good line from Johnston

3.2

Johnston to Sangakkara, 2 leg byes, a huge shout by Johnston as he pitches this on middle, Sangakkara playing across the line and the ball squirts out to the off side. That was deadly close!

3.3

Johnston to Sangakkara, OUT, got him now! A brilliant catch by O'Brien standing up to the stumps, Sangakkara beaten by extra bounce and getting a thin edge to the keeper. And he walks!

KC Sangakkara c †NJ O'Brien b Johnston 3 (13m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

Sri Lanka 14/2   KC Sangakkara 3 (10b)
