20OUTGurney to T Perera, out T Perera Run Out!! What an unfortunate way to get out, that too on 49, when he was on verge of registering the fastest fifty by a Sri Lankan in T20Is, fuller length delivery on off, Perera absolutely smashes it straight down the pitch, the ball uproots the stumps at the bowler's end and he sets off for a quick single, but Gurney with great presence of mind, picks the ball and plucks the stumps out of the ground and T Perera was way short of the crease. T Perera run out (Gurney) 49(20) [4s-7 6s-2]183/7
19.3FOURGurney to N Kulasekara, FOUR, another outside edge, we have seen this all through the evening, back of the hand slower delivery, but too much width offered, Kulasekara throws his bat at it and the ball runs off the outside edge to third man180/6
19FOURJordan to T Perera, FOUR, Jordan seems to have not learnt from the previous balls, dishes out another full-toss, Perera was waiting for it and easily dispatches it between midwicket and long on, the ball just landed on the advertising rope and the umpire has signalled it as four, strange decision!174/6
18.5FOURJordan to T Perera, FOUR, he's making England pay for some worst bowling, another full-toss, this time wide outside off, Perera reaches out and lofts it inside out to sweeper cover170/6
18.4SIXJordan to T Perera, SIX, he's feasting on some bad bowling at the moment, friendly full-toss from Jordan, Perera aboslutely murders it between midwicket and long on, he hit that some 20 rows back into the stands166/6
18.3FOURJordan to T Perera, FOUR, another meaty blow, one bounce and into the fence, poor bowling from Jordan, full and in the arc for the swing, Perera gets under it nicely and bunts it down the ground to long off160/6

19.4FOURLakmal to Bopara, FOUR, still game on folks, this is poor bowling from Lakmal, low full-toss on the pads, Bopara moves across and whips it off his pads to backward square leg, perfect placement!172/7
19.3SIXLakmal to Bopara, SIX, This is not over yet, fuller length delivery on middle, right in the arc for the swing and Bopara doesn't miss out and slogs it way into the stands over backward square leg168/7
18.3OUTMalinga to Jordan, out Bowled!! You just can't get Malinga out of the way, followed by a string of slower deliveries, he slips in a pacy delivery just outside off, Jordan was into the shot early and looks to force it away to the off side, but ends up dragging it back onto the stumps. Jordan b Malinga 5(4) [4s-1]158/7
18FOURN Kulasekara to Bopara, FOUR, Bopara is turning it on here, another low full-toss on middle, Bopara shuffles across to the off side and whips it away to deep mid wicket, it was the shorter boundary and he took full advantage of it156/6
17.3FOURN Kulasekara to Bopara, FOUR, wonderful shot from Bopara, overpitched and in the slot, Bopara stays way back in the crease and drills it inside out to deep extra cover150/6
16.5FOURMalinga to Jordan, FOUR, Malinga can't believe it came off the bat, slower low full-toss, Jordan was completely beaten by the change of pace, but somehow the ball caught the edge and raced away to third man143/6
