ICC World Cup Cricket Match 2007

England vs Sri Lanka

Super 8, Match 9, ENG vs SL: Sri Lanka defeat England by 2 runs

England Cricket team Sri Lanka Cricket team Sri Lanka has won a thrilling match against England by 2 runs. Both Paul Nixon and Ravi Bopara stood on the crease to bring England closer to the target that at one point seemed invincible. It was only on the last delivery when England required 3 runs to win that Bopara was bowled out by Dilhara Fernando.
England lost the precious wicket of Paul Nixon as he gave an easy catch to Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardene off Malingas delivery. Nixon made 42 runs from 44 balls. Dilhara Fernando struck a major blow to England as their in-form batsman Paul Collingwood was declared out. Collingwood was declared out leg before the wicket. He made 14 runs from 21 balls. Reoprted Earlier: Fast bowler Sajid Mahmood claimed four wickets while allrounder Andrew Flintoff secured three as England put up a fine performance in the field to contain Sri Lanka to 235 all out in their World Cup Super 8 match in Antigua on Wednesday.
Fifties from captain Mahela Jayawardene and opener Upul Tharanga were the highpoints of the Sri Lanka batting display after Englands decision to bowl first proved fruitful. Mahmood who claimed 4-50 and Andrew Flintoffs 3-35 gave England a manageable total to chase and the one their batsmen would feel confident about claiming two points from the Super Eight game. Reoprted Earlier: England skipper Michael Vaughan won the toss and invited the Sri Lankans to have the first use of the pitch in the 9th World Cup Super Eights match at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on Wednesday
The England team has decided to retain their same eleven from the last match. While the Sri Lankans too go with an unchanged side which won their last match against the West Indies side. The islanders look pretty confident as they have got comprehensive victories so far with key players coming into form just in the right time. Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga took 13 wickets and young opener Upul Tharanga amassed 347 runs with two hundreds in the series and both have since grown in stature. Malinga looms as a daunting prospect again, his low-slung action making it tough for batsmen to pick. England team: E C Joyce, M P Vaughan, I R Bell, K P Pietersen, P D Collingwood, A Flintoff, R Bopara, P A Nixon, S I Mahmood, J M Anderson, M S Panesar
Sri Lanka team: S T Jayasuriya, W U Tharanga, D P M D Jayawardene, K C Sangakkara, L P C Silva, R Arnold, T M Dilshan, W P U J C Vaas, C R D Fernando, S L Malinga, M Muralitharan
World Cup Super 8, Match 9, Antigua & Barbuda: Sri Lanka 235-10 (50.0 overs) beat England 233-8 (50.0 overs) by 2 runs

Super 8, Match 9, ENG vs SL: Confident Sri Lanka to take fresh guard versus England

England Cricket team Sri Lanka Cricket team Sri Lanka will not dwell on last year's 5-0 series sweep in England when the teams meet again in a World Cup Super Eights match on Wednesday, skipper Mahela Jayawardene said.
Sri Lankan fast bowler Lasith Malinga took 13 wickets and young opener Upul Tharanga amassed 347 runs with two hundreds in the series and both have since grown in stature. Malinga looms as a daunting prospect again, his low-slung action making it tough for batsmen to pick. He is the leading bowler at the tournament with 13 scalps, after his feat of taking four in successive deliveries in a dramatic one-wicket loss to South Africa in their opening Super Eights clash. Sri Lanka bounced back with a 113-run victory over West Indies in Guyana on Sunday after explosive opener Sanath Jayasuriya stroked 115, his second hundred of the tournament.
Both England skipper Michael Vaughan and all-rounder Andrew Flintoff missed that home series due to injuries. Sri Lanka have four points and two more wins would almost certainly secure a semi-final spot. They are expected to go through with champions Australia and New Zealand, who both head the table with six points, and South Africa. Jayawardene said last year's success in England was the launchpad for a strong team, comments that could worry England who looked below their best in beating debutants Ireland by 48 runs on Friday to score their first points. Three-times finalists England have said their tournament would start in earnest against Sri Lanka. England team (from): E Joyce, M Vaughan (Captain), I Bell, K Pietersen, P Collingwood, A Flintoff, P Nixon (Wicket Keeper), R Bopara, S Mahmood, J Anderson, M Panesar, J Dalrymple, A Strauss, L Plunkett, J Lewis.
Sri Lanka team (from): U Tharanga, S Jayasuriya, K Sangakkara (Wicket Keeper), M Jayawardene (Captain), C Silva, T Dilshan, R Arnold, C Vaas, D Fernando, L Malinga, M Muralitharan, F Maharoof, N Kulasekera, M Atapattu, M Bandara.
