14.6 overs (1 Run) This is on a length and outside off, Karunaratne guides it down to third man and gets to the other end. Another excellent over for Sri Lanka.
14.5 overs (2 Runs) Another two! This is on middle, Karunaratne works it through mid-wicket and takes two.
14.4 overs (1 Run) Another single as Perera works it towards short fine leg.
14.3 overs (0 Run) Slower one on middle, this is kept out.
14.2 overs (2 Runs) Now a couple! This is worked through backward square leg and the batters run two.
14.1 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Perera doing it easily at the moment. He gives Brathwaite the charge and drags it with the angle over mid-wicket for a boundary.
13.6 overs (1 Run) Short and on middle, Perera pulls it to fine leg for one.
13.5 overs (0 Run) On the shorter side and on the body, this is pulled down to fine leg for another run.
13.4 overs (1 Run) Confusion but due to the misfield, no harm done! This is fuller and on off, Karunaratne dives it towards cover. He sets off for a run. Perera is not sure. The fielder though misfields and then it is an easy single.
13.3 overs (0 Run) On a good length and around off, this is worked to square leg.
13.2 overs (1 Run) A quick single to get to his half ton! His 14th in ODIs and third in this World Cup. He has really flourished after being promoted. Needs to make it big here though. Kusal gets there by working it on the leg side for one.
13.1 overs (1 Run) Fuller and on middle, Karunaratne works it towards mid on for one.
12.6 overs (2 Runs) Straighter in line, Perera nudges it fine down the leg side for a brace again. 8 from the over.
12.5 overs (2 Runs) Width on offer again, outside off, Kusal cuts it past the right side of the backward point fielder this time and picks up a couple.
12.4 overs (1 Run) Well played! Shortish and on off, Karunaratne leans back and steers it through to backward point. The fielder there dives to his left but the ball bursts through his hands and goes behind. A single is taken.
12.3 overs (1 Run) Back of a length ball around off, Perera goes on his toes and taps it down in the gap on the off side for one.
12.2 overs (2 Runs) Stays back and forces a shortish delivery to the left of sweeper cover for a brace.
12.1 overs (0 Run) On a good length around off, it's punched from the back foot to covers.
Carlos Brathwaite is now introduced into the attack. He came to bowl in the last 10 overs against India and went for aplenty. Today he has come in after Powerplay 1 and would like to bowl nice and tidy.
11.6 overs (1 Run) On the fuller side, this is flicked through mid-wicket for one. 6 singles in the over.
11.5 overs (1 Run) Misfield and a run! This is flicked straight to square leg. He does not stop it cleanly and a single is taken.
11.4 overs (1 Run) Played to the mid-wicket region by the batsman. One run added to the total.

11.2 overs (1 Run) Outside off, Perera guides it to deep point for one.
11.1 overs (1 Run) Too straight again and this is worked down to fine leg for one.
10.6 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Three boundaries in a row! Perera is on the charge here! This is slightly fuller and on off, once again Kusal was waiting for it. He extends his arms and lofts it over mid on for a boundary. 14 from the over, Gabriel has gone for 28 in his 3 overs.
10.5 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Back-to-back boundaries! Too short again and this time Perera was expecting it. He goes back and pulls it through backward square leg. Fine leg runs to his right and tries to stop it but fails to do so.
Jason Holder is sitting near the boundary line now, cutting the nails of his left hand. He is then seen putting his left shoe on. Pommie Mbangwa (on air) sees the funny side of it and comments - I can understand him cutting his toe nails, but this...
10.4 overs (4 Runs) FOUR! Just wide! Short and on the body, it rushed the batter who looks to pull. It goes off Perera's glove and just wide of Hope for a boundary to the fine leg region.
10.3 overs (1 Run) This is on off, Karunaratne looks to defend but ends up playing inside the line, the ball goes off the outer half down to third man for one.
10.2 overs (1 Run) Shorter and on the body, this is worked through square leg for one. 50 up for Sri Lanka. Another good start given by the openers.
10.1 overs (0 Run) Hammered but straight to the fielder! Slightly fuller and around middle, Perera hits it with the angle, right off the middle but straight to mid on.
