L.D. Chandimal 105* v EnglandBack to boards

Dinesh Chandimal’s brilliant unbeaten century helped guide Sri Lanka to an impressive six-wicket ODI victory over England in July 2011.

Alastair Cook’s century for England had earlier given the hosts a score of 246/7 after 50 overs and after Tillakaratne Dilshan had been bowled by Tim Bresnan, Chandimal entered the crease with Sri Lanka 21/1 in response.

What followed was a superb display of batting with Chandimal scoring 11 fours and two sixes in his unbeaten score of 105, sharing a partnership of 112 with Mahela Jayawardene.

Chandimal’s innings lasted 196, with the batsman facing 126 balls to help  Sri Lanka to victory.
