Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
49.3FOURDawlat Zadran to Mathews, no ball, byes, FOUR, goes for the yorker and gets it horribly wrong, it is a beamer and Mathews had to get out of the way as the ball was coming straight at his head, Shahzad is not able to stop it and Sri Lanka get easy runs. Dawlat is taken off as this was the second high full toss that he has bowled247/6
49.2FOURDawlat Zadran to Mathews, FOUR, length delivery on off, Mathews whacks it to the vacant deep mid wicket region, it was an off-cutter from Dawlat242/6
48.5FOURShapoor to Mathews, FOUR, fullish and outside off, Mathews swings hard and gets a thickish outside edge over the backward point fielder, Sri Lanka will take them in which ever way they come237/6
48.2FOURShapoor to T Perera, leg byes, FOUR, full and nipping back in, Perera makes room and tries to go inside out, but misses as the ball runs to the third man fence off the pads229/6
47.3FOURDawlat Zadran to Mathews, FOUR, back of a length on the pads, Mathews gets inside the line and tucks it past the short fine leg fielder, he was aware of the field and took advantage of the poor delivery219/6
46.3FOURShapoor to Mathews, FOUR, slower delivery outside off, Mathews gives the charge and whacks it over mid wicket for a one bounce four, there was no one in the deep, so that was easy pickings. First boundary after 42 balls209/6

Innings Highlights

Over No.Event TypeEventTeam Score
38.4OUTde Silva to Mirwais, out Caught by T Perera!! Sri Lanka win and with a bonus point. This was pushed through and turning away outside off, Mirwais looks for a powerful drive, he only slices it off the top part of the bat to backward point, where Thisara Perera takes the easiest of catches. Mirwais c T Perera b de Silva 1(18)124/10
38OUTA Mendis to Dawlat Zadran, out Bowled!! This was looped up beautifully, spinning in as well, Dawlat Zadran is lured into an ambitious lofted drive that does not come to pass, the googly sneaks through the gate and the leg-stump is pegged back. Dawlat Zadran b A Mendis 0(8)124/9
35.5OUTA Mendis to Hotak, out Lbw!! An appeal for LBW, umpire Oxenford raises his finger after a deliberation to award Mendis his second wicket. This was floated on middle, Hotak fails to defend, he is struck in line on the back pad. There was a minute deflection-it was the bat flicking the pad. No sign of an inside snick.Hotak lbw b A Mendis 1(14)122/8
32.3OUTde Silva to Nabi, out Lbw!! de Silva gets his man, after being hit in the last over. This was fuller and pushed through on off, Nabi goes on his knees and misses the sweep, the ball thuds into the pads. The umpire took his time before giving that out, the ball seemed to be going on to hit the leg-stump. Nabi lbw b de Silva 37(43) [4s-3 6s-1]121/7
31.3OUTT Perera to Najibullah, out Caught by Mathews!! Thisara breaks this good looking partnership. This was a full delivery outside off, Najibullah does not move his feet as he drives it uppishly straight to Mathews at cover. He is not going to drop those. Najibullah c Mathews b T Perera 11(35) [4s-1]121/6
31FOURde Silva to Nabi, FOUR, poor bowling from de Silva, half tracker on leg-stump, Nabi swivels and pulls it to the backward square leg fence, that was easy pickings121/5
