  • Sri Lanka beat South Africa to win series

    Posted on July 29, 2013 by Selby

    Cricket Memorabilia from the exciting one day series at Pallekele will be available on Tuesday, in particular signed cricket balls by Dilshan and Sangakkara

    Tillakaratne Dilshan and Kumar Sangakkara pulverised South Africa's bowling as Sri Lanka took a decisive 3-1 lead in the one-day series with an eight-wicket victory in Pallekele on Sunday.

    Scorecard

    Dilshan returned unbeaten on 115 and Sangakkara made 91 during a record partnership of 184 runs to steer the hosts past South Africa's 238 all out in the 44th over of the day-night match.

    The emphatic victory by the 2011 World Cup finalists reduced Wednesday's fifth and final match in Colombo to a formality.

    Dilshan's 17th one-day century and the second against South Africa was studded with 16 boundaries. Sangakkara kept pace with his partner with eight fours and two sixes.

    The pair put on Sri Lanka's highest one-day stand for any wicket against the Proteas after opener Mahela Jayawardene had been removed for 12 in the 10th over.

    Left-handed Sangakkara missed his second hundred in the series when he holed out in the deep off Morne Morkel when just 10 more were needed for victory.

    Ragged South Africa paid dearly for conceding 20 extras that included 17 wides and a no-ball.

    Earlier, JP Duminy hit 97 and a fit-again Hashim Amla made 77 to lift South Africa to 238 after the tourists won the toss and elected to bat.

    But the Proteas undid a good start by losing eight wickets for 87 runs after cruising at 118-1 in the 22nd over.

    Duminy lashed seven boundaries and two sixes before he was last man out in the 49th over, bowled by unorthodox spinner Ajantha Mendis three runs short of a century.

    Mendis finished with four for 51, while sling-arm fast bowler Lasith Malinga claimed three for 52 and Dilshan took two wickets.

    Amla, batting for the first time in the series after being injured while fielding in the only other game he played, anchored the start with a fluent half-century that contained nine boundaries.

    Duminy shared a second-wicket stand of 101 with Amla after Quinton de Kock had been bowled by Malinga in the third over.

  • England v India at Subrata

    Posted on December 21, 2012 by Selby

    England v India at Subrata

    Cricket collectables from the recent Test Series will be available on our website next week we have several presentation sets from the series and a good supply of signed tour itineraries, autographs, and programmes.

    It was great to see India back on form in the first Twenty20 at the Roy Sahara Stadium although disappointing for England that they won by 5 wickets.

    Opener Alex Hales(Notts) set the pace with his 50 scored off 35 balls before his wicket was taken by left arm spinner Yuvraj Singh, this escalated when Luke Wright and leading Twenty20 batsman Captain Eoin Morgan were dismissed in the space of 2 overs both caught Rahane bowed Singh who ended up with 3 very valuable wickets for 19 runs.

    England were never able to regain momentum, India impressed in the field, they were so much better than in the tests.

    England bowling was below par; Jade Dernbach (Surrey)delivering 3 wides in his first over amongst the 10 conceded during the match, Bresnan was top England bowler with 2/26

    The top Indian scorer was Singh on 38 off 21 deliveries caught by Meaker(Surrey) bowled Wright(Leic) as a best score that more or less tells the story.

    Cricket memorabilia from the current Twenty20 is in demand and a good assortment should be available.

    The 2nd and last match of the series should make great viewing in Mumbai tomorrow.

    The Ireland Cricket side well deserve to be in the twenty20 World cup finals and its good news that Paul Stirling has committed himself to the team in view of the attention he is attracting, his 2, look away and you will miss it, half centuries against Namibia and Afghanistan last weekend, this display of talent has made him a prime target of the England selectors.
    The Irish team are now positioned ahead of the West Indies in the t20 world rankings,
