Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
19.2OUTNeesham to Malinga, out Bowled!! Neesham has three wickets to his name, a first ball duck for the Sri Lanka captain. Malinga was backing away, Neesham followed him, Malinga looks to whip and misses, the ball hits the pad and deflects back onto the stumps. SL have been bowled out for 119. Malinga b Neesham 0(1)119/10
19.1OUTNeesham to Senanayake, out Caught by Williamson!! Neesham gets away with another poor ball, this was a juicy full toss, well outside off as well. Senanayake was looking to crack it to the right of point, he does not get the elevation right. Williamson dives across to his right and snaffles a good catch. A sheepish smile from the bowler, he knows he got lucky. Senanayake c Williamson b Neesham 17(11) [4s-1 6s-1]119/9
18.5OTHERMills to Senanayake, no run, Herath gets lucky again, this was short and just outside off, Senanayake punched it towards backward point, Herath set off for a single, Senanayake started and then stopped. Herath had no chance of getting back. Williamson throws it towards the bowler, Mills collects, runs back and misses the stumps with Herath well short of his crease118/8
18.3OTHERMills to Senanayake, 1 run, a direct hit would have had Herath well short. This was short and just outside off, Senanayake ran it towards McClenaghan at short third man and called for a quick single. A direct hit and Herath would have had to run all the way back to the dressing room117/8
18.2OUTMills to T Perera, out Caught by Williamson!! Perera has been caught, this was the slower ball from Mills, he rolled his fingers over it. Perera went for the big slog, is way too early on the shot and gets a thick top-edge. Williamson circled around it at point and takes it with his fingers pointing up. T Perera c Williamson b Mills 16(13) [4s-3]116/8
18.1FOURMills to T Perera, FOUR, short of a length and just outside off, Perera swings and gets a top edge, clears short third man and races away to the fence116/7

Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
15.3OUTHerath to Boult, out Caught by M Jayawardene!! Sri Lanka have pulled off a special win, they win by 59 runs. This was slower and outside off, Boult comes down the track and was trying to go big, since he was not to the pitch of the ball, he tries to block, in the end he ends up guiding it straight into Mahela at slip. Herath picks up his fifth wicket, it his best figures in T20Is. Boult c M Jayawardene b Herath 3(8)60/9
15.1OUTHerath to Boult, out Williamson Run Out!! 1 run completed. That is game set and match. Another confusion leads to the well set Williamson being run-out. Tossed up delivery on middle, Boult tries to work it to the on-side, he gets a leading edge to sweeper cover, Williamson didn't want the second but Boult was charging back, Mathews throws the ball to Herath who does the rest. Williamson was nowhere in the picture. Williamson run out (Mathews/Herath) 42(43) [4s-6]60/8
14.4FOURMalinga to Williamson, FOUR, yorker but wrong line, it is well down leg, Williamson leans forward and tickles it to the fine leg fence. They need plenty of this, if they have to win this match57/7
13.3OUTSenanayake to Mills, out Lbw!! What was Mills trying to do there? A reverse sweep at this stage! Flighted delivery that turned in, Mills goes on his knees and tries to reverse sweep, he misses and is struck on the pads, umpire Tucker took his time before raising his finger. The replays show that it was missing leg-stump, so Mills was unlucky there. Mills lbw b Senanayake 4(9) [4s-1]51/7
12.5FOURMathews to Mills, FOUR, fuller and well wide of off, Mills comes forward and creams the drive to the deep extra cover fence, the timing was superb as the sweeper fielder had no chance of stopping that50/6
12.2FOURMathews to Williamson, FOUR, Williamson has decided to take on Mathews, short delivery on the stumps, it just sat up to be hit, Williamson does not miss out as he swivels and pulls it behind square for a boundary45/6
