Watch highlights from the 3rd ODI – Sri Lanka vs England – played at Lord’s on July 3, 2011
Scoreline: England 246/7 – Alastair Cook 119 (143), KP 41 (43) | Jeevan Mendis 10-40-2, Lakmal and Malinga 2 apiece
Sri Lanka win in 48.2 – Dinesh Chandimal 105 no (126), Mahela 79 (77) | Swann 10-32-2
My favourite bit from the entire Chandimal 100 saga was Angelo Mathews. Sure, he’d obviously encouraged the whole idea of playing for the 100, but what was fantastic to watch was his refusal to buckle down despite the raging Sri Lankan balcony. Even when Chandimal appeared ready to chicken out of the plan. Takes a lot of guts, that, regardless of whether the plan of playing for a hundred was right or wrong. Honestly, who can really tell – if SL had somehow managed to lose the game from there, you could have had an opinion. But they didn’t.
