Butler to Sangakkara, FOUR, lovely shot from Sangakkara, first ball caressed through the covers for a boundary, there was a bit of width, and Sangakkara leant into that drive nicely


Butler to Sangakkara, FOUR, and another, this time off the backfoot just in front of square, Butler tries to compensate by pitching it too short and Sangakkara brings out the cut to punish the bowler


Butler to Sangakkara, no run, this was a back of a length, nice and close to offstump, Sangakkara shows us some textbook backfoot defence


Butler to Sangakkara, no run, angling into the batsman, on a length, Sangakkara leans over and tries to flick it towards midwicket, straight towards the fielder


Butler to Sangakkara, FOUR, no slip in place and Sangakkara survives, it was a length ball outside off, had Sangakkara reaching for it as he off-drove, the outside edge streaks through to the third man boundary


Butler to Sangakkara, no run, a rarity in Twenty20, the batsman lets the ball go through to the keeper, that was well wide of offstump

Sri Lanka 39/2   IG Butler 1-0-12-0

Butler to Sangakkara, 1 run, low full toss to start the over, crunched down to long-off for yet another single by Sangakkara


Butler to Jayawardene, FOUR, fantastic shot from Jayawardene, a half-volley on middle and off, Jayawarden takes a step back towards the leg side, and launches it inside-out towards the extra cover boundary, Jayawardene has put on his dancing shoes here, superb footwork from him so far


Butler to Jayawardene, 1 run, gets the yorker in this time, Jayawardene bends his knees and jabs that one towards point


Butler to Sangakkara, no run, a bit wide outside off, Sangakkara puts a lot of effort behind an attempted cut but he doesn't connect with the ball


Butler to Sangakkara, 1 run, another yorker, about a foot outside off, Sangakkara can only squeeze it towards third man, good ball from Butler


Butler to Jayawardene, 1 run, a low full toss from Butler to finish the over, Jayawardene crashes it towards mid-off, doesn't beat the fielder

Sri Lanka 132/3   IG Butler 2-0-20-0

Butler to Mubarak, 1 run, Butler keeps on sending in the yorkers, this was again outside off, Mubarak opens the face to get the ball towards third man


Butler to Jayawardene, 1 run, poor delivery but Butler gets away with it, it was a full toss on offstump, Jayawardene makes room and crashes it towards sweeper cover


Butler to Mubarak, 2 runs, Mubarak comes down the track to lash the full ball straight down the ground, long-off comes across to cut it off


Butler to Mubarak, FOUR, no one cutting that one off, it was a shortish ball, Mubarak was again down the pitch and he slaps it powerfully down the ground, just to the left of the bowler


Butler to Mubarak, OUT, Butler gets his revenge, Mubarak's knock comes to an end, he was trying to paddle a full ball, seemed to have been struck on the pads, but replays suggest it didn't, big appeal from New Zealand and Simon Taufel upholds it

J Mubarak lbw b Butler 8 (3m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 160.00


Butler to Mathews, 1 run, length ball outside off, Mathews powers his first ball towards long-off for a single, which means he retains the strike

Sri Lanka 148/5   IG Butler 3-0-29-1
