Taylor to Jayasuriya, no run, full and straight, block hole stuff from Taylor, Jayasuriya can't do much about that and plays it to the bowler


Taylor to Jayasuriya, no run, driven firmly off the front foot but Jayasuriya doesn't beat the infield


Taylor to Jayasuriya, 1 run, short ball angles into the left-hander from round the wicket, Jayasuriya gets cramped for room while pulling but manages to get a single after hitting the ball on to his body

Taylor to Jayasuriya, no run, more slow stuff from the West Indian bowlers, Taylor slants a short slow ball towards the left-hander from round the wicket, Jayasuriya misses the pull, he's not happy with his bat and has called for a replacement


Taylor to Jayasuriya, no run, he's nearly been caught! Jayasuriya tried to pull again, was cramped for room again, and lobbed the ball tamely on the leg side, both bowler and keeper went for it but neither could reach it


Taylor to Jayasuriya, no run, Jayasuriya backs away towards leg side, Taylor sees him go and bowls the ball as far outside off as he can without it being a wide, Jayasuriya can't reach it, he's getting restless out there


Taylor to Jayasuriya, 1 leg bye, played off the pads behind square for one


Taylor to Dilshan, FOUR, now what was that? Taylor bowled a slower short ball, Dilshan was shaping up to pull but realised that he was early on the shot, he waited for the ball and tipped it over the keeper's head for four


Taylor to Dilshan, SIX, low full toss from Taylor, Dilshan moves across, bends down low and paddles the ball towards fine leg, the ball bounces on the boundary line and it's the first six of the match! Not quite the scoop but every bit as effective, he picked that up from middle stump

Sri Lanka 23/0   JE Taylor 2-0-13-0

Taylor to Dilshan, 1 run, tries to swing it through the leg side but can only managed a bottom edge to midwicket


Taylor to Silva, 1 run, good inswinging yorker, right at the base of the stumps and Silva can only punch it out to cover to bring up the 100


Taylor to Dilshan, no run, gets away with this one as Taylor drags it down short outside off, but Dilshan flashes hard and misses his connection


Taylor to Dilshan, FOUR, a valuable boundary, it was a low full toss at the stumps and Dilshan managed to open the face and drive hard through backward point with real power and placement


Taylor to Dilshan, 2 runs, gets underneath this one and hoicks it away over square leg, doesn't place it wide enough of the fielder but can scamper back for a second


Taylor to Dilshan, 2 runs, another top shot, driven hard through the covers but an excellent save on the cover boundary by Marshall prevents the four...West Indies need to keep their standards high

Sri Lanka 108/3   JE Taylor 3-0-23-0

Taylor to Mubarak, no run, Mubarak walks down the pitch but has to duck out of the way of a short ball from Taylor


Taylor to Mubarak, 2 runs, full and wide outside off stump, Mubarak drives it through point, they'll get two


Taylor to Mubarak, OUT, that's some catch! Mubarak pulled the short ball high in the air towards deep midwicket, Sammy misjudged it initially but recovered in time, he sprinted in, covering lots of ground with his long strides before diving forward at full length to catch the ball inches off the ground

J Mubarak c Sammy b Taylor 7 (5m 5b 1x4 0x6) SR: 140.00


Taylor to Dilshan, 1 run, Dilshan swings but gets an inside edge behind square
