CWC15 - Duminy Hattrick Sinks Lanka

#SriLanka vs #SouthAfrica
18th Mar 2015

#JPDuminy was the weakest bowler in this SA lineup.
Sri Lanka would have looked to launch into him to propel their score.
Instead he has done the unthinkable .... by claiming a #hattrick with is right handed off spin bowling.

Sri Lanka were pegged back by the relentless pace attack of SA followed by a superb spell from #ImranTahir. But, it was Duminy who provided the spell of a life time to claim his hattrick.

His hattrick scalps
#AngeloMathews - c. DuPlessis at short mid wicket
#Kulasekhara - c. deKock behind the stumps
#Kaushal - lbw

Amazing scenes at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

SA all over Sri Lanka.
Game over ... well almost .. unless the #weather or #SriLanka spinners can repeat the dose back to the SA batsmen.

127 for 9, 36.2 overs (match stopped due to rain)

CWC15 LIVE - SA Strike First, SL Openers Back In The Hut

#SriLanka vs #SouthAfrica
18th Mar 2015

South Africa have started with purpose and really unleashed their seamers at Sri Lanka.
Steyn, Abbott and Morkel are getting their swing, pace, bounce absolutely right to unsettle the Lnakan batsmen.

They have been rewarded for their disciplined bowling.
#KusalPerera, a surprise opener sent in to whack the bowl around, was trying to hit too hard against an attack very potent and lethal. #KyleAbbott got him to edge one behind for 3.

#Dilshan who was tied down for 10 balls without scoring, had to get himself away. He chose a steaming #DaleStryn to attack. Bad choice. Steyn got him to edge to second slip where DuPlessis took a wonderful catch.

At 4 for 2 in 4 overs, Sri Lankans were really pegged back.

#KumarSangakarra, who's batting like a dream in this #CWC15 and #LahiruThirimanna are at the crease now. Thirimanna has opened up and hit a few boundaries to up that scoring rate.

Its pretty intense out there. 
This is certainly the best quarterfinal in terms of a contest and intensity.
Both teams equally matched and its about who seizes the moments?

Sri Lanka: 42 for 2, 12 overs
Sangakarra - 5*
Thirimanna - 29*

CWC 2015 LIVE - Australia Setup A Massive 376 vs Sri Lanka

#Australia v #SriLanka, #SCG

Wow ... Australia have piled it on big time against Sri Lanka in a Pool A game at #CWC15

In the midstages, it looked like 300 would be a good score but a #GlennMaxwell blinder followed by #ShaneWatson blitze ensured they really drove it in and reached 376 for 9 in 50 overs.

#StevenSmith and #MichaelClarke steadied the innings after an even start in the first 10 overs. Sri Lankans looked like they had plans for the Aussies and scalped two danger wickets (Warner and Finch).

But, once the Smith-Clarke steadied things, Maxwell and Watson took it over and skyrocketed the Australian innings to an amazing level.

Sri Lankan bowlers pummelled into oblivion.
#Malinga, the only bright spot in that bowling line up.

CWC 2015 LIVE - Eng v SL - Chase Is ON

#Eng v #SL, #Wellington
1st Mar 2015

#LahiruThirimanne and #TilakratneDilshan have setup a century stand in their chase of 310 against England at Wellington. Chase is on....

Score 100 for 1 in 20 overs.

Earlier in the day, a fluent #JoeRoot century set England on course to a healthy 309 for 6 in 50 overs.
He was ably supported by #IanBell and #JosButler with key innings' as well.

All Sri Lankan bowlers shared the 6 wickets to fall in the England innings.
But, dropped chances cost them dear as England set an imposing total.

Game ON here...
