Sri Lanka are at 130 for one after 15 overs against England in a Group 1 match in the ICC World T20 2014. Mahela Jayawardene is batting on 82 and Tillakaratne Dilshan is on 42. The duo have shared a 126-run partnership for the second wicket. This is a Super 10s match in the T20 World Cup at Chittagong on March 27.

James Tredwell bowled the 11th over. Jayawardene came down the track and struck a four through wide long-on. The next ball was swept by Jayawardene for another four behind square on the leg side.

In the 13th over bowled by Tredwell, Jayawardene plays a reverse-sweep and gets a four through third-man. That got him his ninth half-century in T20Is. He then came down the track and lofted one from Tredwell for a big six over long-on. That brought up the 100 for Sri Lanka.

The 100-run partnership between the duo came up in the 14th over. Jayawardene was batting sublimely as he cut a short and wide delivery from Bresnan over backward-point for a four. The next ball was struck for a six towards wide long-on.

Jade Dernbach came in and bowled a full-toss at Jayawardene, which was called as a no-ball. Jayawardene then hit a full-length delivery outside off-stump through extra-cover for a four. Jayawardene then hit a low full-toss towards deep extra-cover. Bresnan dropped his second catch at the boundary.
