Ireland v Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka won by 9 runs

9.1

9.2

McCallan to Jayawardene, 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

9.5

McCallan to Jayawardene, 2 runs, reverse sweep - or was it a switch? Just a reverse, I think, and he had all the time in the world to get himself into position, so slow are these offies

9.6

McCallan to Jayawardene, 1 run, tucked to leg for just a single

Sri Lanka 67/2   WK McCallan 1-0-10-0

11.1

McCallan to Jayawardene, no run, round the wicket, Jayawardene goes way to the off side and then misses his sweep..half an appeal, but not out

11.2

McCallan to Jayawardene, FOUR, full toss this time and easily helped over short fine-leg, that's easy pickings for a batsman of Jayawardene's class

11.3

McCallan to Jayawardene, 3 runs, carved away off a thick outer half of the bat through backward point, and excellent running from Jayasuriya (who is nearly 40) makes it into three

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

11.5

McCallan to Silva, 1 run, driven down the ground to get off the mark

11.6

McCallan to Jayawardene, 1 run, worked to long on to end a successful over for McCallan

Sri Lanka 83/3   WK McCallan 2-0-19-1

13.1

McCallan to Jayawardene, 1 leg bye, goes for an extravagant reverse sweep but gets into a tangle and the ball bobbles off the pad to short fine-leg

13.2

McCallan to Silva, 2 runs, conventional sweep from Silva, well placed out to deep square-leg

13.3

McCallan to Silva, 1 run, middles this sweep as well, goes straight to the man on the boundary

13.4

McCallan to Jayawardene, 1 run, very full, slog-swept out to deep midwicket and goes one bounce to Cusack who is patrolling the boundary

13.5

McCallan to Silva, OUT, another goes, this time the sweep proves the downfall as a top edge goes straight down Rankin's throat at deep square-leg. Silva couldn't have picked out the fielder any better

LPC Silva c Rankin b McCallan 4 (9m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 66.66

13.6

McCallan to Mubarak, no run, good finish to the over, on off stump and pushed back down the pitch

Sri Lanka 97/4   WK McCallan 3-0-23-2

15.1

McCallan to Jayawardene, 1 run, worked through square leg, a slightly wild throw from West but it doesn't cost anything

15.2

McCallan to Mubarak, 1 run, stifled appeal from McCallan as Mubarak gets an inside edge onto his pad and they manage to scamper a quick single into the off side

15.3

McCallan to Jayawardene, 1 run, cut away through the off side

15.4

McCallan to Mubarak, 1 run, bunted down the ground to long-on

15.5

McCallan to Jayawardene, 2 runs, well placed through the leg side, picks the gap between midwicket and deep square-leg

15.6

McCallan to Jayawardene, FOUR, moves across outside off and sweeps this over short fine-leg...he's played that a few times with excellent timing and placement

Sri Lanka 111/4   WK McCallan 4-0-33-2
