Sri Lanka vs. England Women’s Cricket Match: Live Updates and Commentary

22nd over: Sri Lanka 100-9 (Ranaweera 1, Kulasuriya 8)
Gaur returns from the other end, and we’re left still waiting for the final blow. Kulasuriya goes for a big swing that catches the air, and the ball somehow misses the stumps. Then comes a cracking shot from Kulasariya, as she lofts over extra cover for four.

21st over: Sri Lanka 95-9 (Ranaweera 0, Kulasuriya 4)
NSB flexes by bringing Filer back to try and finish this off now. A full toss is Filer’s first contribution though, with Kulasuriya slapping it through the covers for four.

20th over: Sri Lanka 91-9 (Kulasuriya 0, Ranaweera 0)
No runs off the over and a wicket for Glenn, who has squeezed while Dean has struck from the other end.
WICKET! Ranasinghe lbw Glenn 6 (Sri Lanka 91-9)
Glenn gets in on the fun, with Ranasinghe trapped in front trying a reverse sweep. There’s a review, but we all know where this is going. Three reds, and Sri Lanka are nine down.
Sarah Glenn celebrates after taking the wicket of Oshadi Ranasinghe.

19th over: Sri Lanka 91-8 (Ranasinghe 6, Kulasuriya 0)
WICKET! Prabodhani b Dean 2 (Sri Lanka 91-8)
Five for Charlie Dean! Prabodhani drags on trying to cut off the back foot. Dean has bowled beautifully today and is rewarded with her first five-for in international cricket.
Charlie Dean is mobbed by her teammates after taking the wicket of Udeshika Prabodhani.

18th over: Sri Lanka 90-7 (Ranasinghe 5, Prabodhani 2)
Glenn runs through her work quickly, just one off it.
17th over: Sri Lanka 89-7 (Ranasinghe 4, Prabodhani 2)
Dean continues, mixing up her pace and shapes, but there’s no fifth wicket just yet.
All this white-ball stuff over the last few weeks has made me rewatch that Sky ad for The Lovers way too many times. I’m pretty sure I can recite it word for word at this point. Help me. Anyway, Dean’s back, looking for a five-for.

16th over: Sri Lanka 86-7 (Ranasinghe 2, Prabodhani 1)
Glenn continues, but NSB must be tempted to bring Filer back soon to knock over the tail. The leggie runs through her over quickly, conceding just three. Cue the drinks break.
15th over: Sri Lanka 83-7 (Ranasinghe 0, Prabodhani 0)
Dean has four, and England are nearly there.
WICKET! Dilhari b Dean 1 (Sri Lanka 83-7)
Three wickets in the over! Dean is running away with the game. This time it’s a right-hander, with the off-break driftin’, rippin’, dippin’ and knockin’ over Dilhari. Just gorgeous spin bowling, this.
Kavisha Dilhari is bamboozled by the off-break and off she goes, back to the pavilion.

14th over: Sri Lanka 81-5 (Karunaratne 15, Perera 32)
An lbw shout as Karunaratne gets on one knee to slog sweep, but England opt against it. Perera then hits straight for four to close the over.
13th over: Sri Lanka 76-4 (Karunaratne 14, Perera 28)
Dean is getting some nice flight and dip with her off-break, and Sri Lanka’s pair can’t nail a big shot off her in the over.
12th over: Sri Lanka 71-4 (Karunaratne 10, Perera 27)
Glenn whirls away and Karunaratne and Perera knock it about to take five off the over.
11th over: Sri Lanka 66-4 (Karunaratne 6, Perera 26)
Karunaratne uses her feet well to swat Dean to long-on for four. Perera finishes the over by driving behind point for another boundary.
10th over: Sri Lanka 53-4 (Perera 20, Karunaratne 0)
Perera is seeing them well, and she launches Glenn down the ground to long-off for four.
9th over: Sri Lanka 46-4 (Perera 13, Karunaratne 0)
Filer is just too quick here. She goes straight and at the stumps and Dulani’s hack is futile.
Imesha Dulani is out for just 5. Sri Lanka are in deep trouble.

8th over: Sri Lanka 38-3 (Athapaththu 4, Perera 13)
Another nice shot from Perera, cutting Gaur for four. A drag-down follows and that means the cut is out again, producing another boundary.
7th over: Sri Lanka 30-3 (Perera 5, Athapaththu 4)
Hasini Perera drives through the covers to get herself going, but that’s another quality set from Filer.
WICKET! Dulani b Filer 5 (Sri Lanka 24-3)
Filer is just too quick here. She goes straight and at the stumps and Dulani’s hack is futile.
Imesha Dulani is out for just 5. Sri Lanka are in deep trouble.

6th over: Sri Lanka 24-2 (Athapaththu 4, Dulani 5)
Good shot from the new batter, Imesha Dulani, who drives Gaur through extra cover for four to get off the mark.
WICKET! Samarawickrama c Davidson-Richards b Gaur 1 (Sri Lanka 19-2)
Gaur gets some beautiful shape to move the ball away from Samarawickrama. And then comes the drive… and an edge to Davidson-Richards at first slip! Terrific bowling from the teenager, just what you want from a left-arm quick with the new ball.

5th over: Sri Lanka 18-1 (Samarawickrama 1, Athapaththu 4)
Filer is troubling Athapaththu, keeping things quiet by launching the ball across the left-hander.
WICKET! Sanjeewani 13 b Filer (Sri Lanka 17-0)
Pace is pace yaar. Filer thuds the ball into Sanjeewani, who is bowled via a deflection off the pads. Full length, fast, and too good.
Sanjeewani is bowled out for 13!

4th over: Sri Lanka 17-0 (Sanjeewani 13, Athapaththu 4)
Sanjeewani heaves Gaur to the leg side for a couple. Decent areas from the left-armer, who produces another decent over.

3rd over: Sri Lanka 14-0 (Athapaththu 4, Sanjeewani 10)
Sanjeewani slaps Filer over mid-off for four to cue some, I think, Franz Ferdinand from the DJ. Been a while since I heard anything from them. Anyway, Filer’s got wheels, beating Athapaththu’s bat as she thunders in from over the wicket.

2nd over: Sri Lanka 9-0 (Sanjeewani 5, Athapaththu 4)
From the other end,
