27.5OUTBopara to Malinga, out Bowled!! England win by 81 runs. This was always on the cards as Malinga was living on a knives edge. The back of the hand delivery from Bopara, Malinga makes room, looks to cut but gets a bottom edge back onto the stumps. Malinga b Bopara 10(16) [4s-1]144/10
26.3OUTGurney to Senanayake, out Caught by Bell!! This was always on the cards. Gurney deserved that wicket as he has been excellent today. Full and in the slot for the batsman, Senanayake gets under it and looks to send it over long on, he does not middle it and finds Bell at long on. Senanayake c Bell b Gurney 11(11) [4s-1]138/9
25.2FOURBopara to Senanayake, FOUR, bit too straight from Bopara, Senanayake pulls it behind square, Anderson runs across and puts in the dive but can't prevent the ball from reaching the ropes131/8
24.4FOURJordan to Malinga, FOUR, goes for the sucker ball, full and on the stumps, Malinga was upto it, he gets under it and lofts it over mid-off, he didn't middle it but the ball had enough to reach the fence127/8
23.2OUTTredwell to T Perera, out Caught by J Root!! Perera's dodgy innings comes to an end. He tried to hit his way out. The quicker delivery just outside off, Perera does not get under it, he mistimes it completely to long on, Root runs to his right and takes an excellent catch. T Perera c J Root b Tredwell 2(6)118/8
22OUTTredwell to Mathews, out Caught by Cook!! The reverse sweep turns out to be the downfall for Mathews. This was the quicker delivery outside off, Mathews goes for his most productive shot in this innings, he does not middle it, gets a top-edge over short third man, Cook runs back and completes a superb catch. He had his eyes on the ball till the end. Mathews c Cook b Tredwell 18(21) [4s-2]114/7
