View dismissal ST Jayasuriya* c Imran Khan b Taylor 10 7 2 0 142.85
4.1 outside the off, short of length, and he has tried to go over the top of mid-on, but gets bit of a top edge, it goes to the mid-wicket region where Imran Khan runs across from mid-on to hold it well 35/3
View dismissal HGJM Kulatunga run out (Taylor/†Jayawardene) 31 31 5 0 100.00
11.4 from Perera, driven to wide long-off, they go for a single and try to come back for the second but the batsman is well short of the crease when the throw comes in and the keeper dislodges the stumps, half the side is back now. 74/5
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq b Shahid Afridi 1 2 0 0 50.00
5.1 bowled him, first ball, Afridi has gone through the defences of his Pakistani captain, quicker on the middle, wrong 'un, and he was on his back foot, went for the cut and missed! 39/4
View dismissal KDK Vithanage run out (Silva/Perera) 31 27 2 1 114.81
16.5 Perera to Sohail Tanvir, gone, run-out, it was outside the off and he pushes it to the cover fielder, the non-striker was rushing for a single, the batsman was not having any of it and the throw is back to the bowler, who whips off the bails and they have lost their ninth now. 123/9
View dismissal NLTC Perera c Finch b Imran Khan 17 10 1 1 170.00
13.5 pulled away and to the fielder at deep square-leg, it was a short ball too and the batsman backed himself to clear it, he did not and a beaming Imran Khan celebrates his first wicket with a broad smile! 103/6
View dismissal JW Hastings b Malinga 3 5 0 0 60.00
15.3 yorker and smashes his stumps! That was a quick, quick ball, middle stump line and swinging to hit the leg-stump, thankfully it missed his toe, which may not survived the impact, such was its pace 119/7
View dismissal KS Lokuarachchi c Silva b Perera 1 3 0 0 33.33
16.3 slog swept it away but straight into the hands of the fielder at deep mid-wicket, easily caught by Silva and they are now eight down! 122/8

  Ruhuna Royals innings (target: 143 runs from 20 overs) R B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal AJ Finch c †Vithanage b Sohail Tanvir 0 3 0 0 0.00
0.3 huge appeal for a caught-behind and he has been given! This one was swinging back into the batsman instead of going away, takes the edge and the wicket-keeper has snaffled up a beauty, diving to his right and picking it up inches from the ground! 0/1
View dismissal RJMGM Rupasinghe run out (Hastings) 8 16 1 0 50.00
11.3 from Saeed Ajmal, gone this time, Rupasinghe is run-out and Afridi can easily be blamed here, he called Rupasinghe for a single, and once the batsman had taken five steps out of the crease, Afridi decided to send him back, the throw from short fine-leg was quick and accurate, hits the stumps direct too. 76/5
View dismissal HAPW Jayawardene c Jayasuriya b Sohail Tanvir 10 11 2 0 90.90
4.3 gone, caught at short covers! That one went away from the batsman, he looked too early into the stroke, wanted to cut it away before checking it and the ball hits the toe of the bat, loops up for the short cover fielder to rush in and pouch a simple catch 18/2
View dismissal DJ Harris c Perera b Saeed Ajmal 1 6 0 0 16.66
7.2 on the leg stump and that has been pulled straight into the hands of the short fine-leg fielder! It was neither too short, nor was it too full and he played an in-between stroke too, neither a pull nor a sweep and it lobs up for a simple catch to the fielder 27/3
View dismissal HDRL Thirimanne c †Vithanage b Hastings 23 22 3 0 104.54
10.5 edged and gone, squared him up, dying on the way to getting to the keeper too but taken well! It was from round the wicket, was angling in before leaving the bat and he nicked it 69/4
View dismissal Shahid Afridi c †Vithanage b Saeed Ajmal 36 16 1 4 225.00
13.1 edged and gone, round the stumps, wanted to cut that short one away, gets an outside edge and the keeper does well to hold on to it, end of Afridi's cameo, and the Royals are a fair distance away for the target yet. 85/6
View dismissal LPC Silva run out (Lokuarachchi/Jayasuriya) 8 9 1 0 88.88
14.4 from Jayasuriya, down the pitch, extravagant drive through the covers, they take a single and Silva wanted to come back for the second, the non-striker sends him back but he slips and the bails are removed by an ecstatic Jayasuriya before he can recover! 90/8
View dismissal MDK Perera c & b Jayasuriya 2 3 0 0 66.66
14.1 dolly for Jayasuriya and he has done his foot while taking it! Quick arm action, slower one and the batsman tries to work it to the leg side, gets something of a leading edge back to the bowler, who I must admit, needed to stretch to his right to take it, but in the process he looks hurt. 88/7
View dismissal SL Malinga* b Sohail Tanvir 6 13 0 0 46.15
17.2 bowled him, end of the game, comprehensive performance from the Warriors, it was full on the middle and Malinga went for a hoick, misses bat, hits stumps! 100/10
View dismissal JE Taylor lbw b Saeed Ajmal 1 2 0 0 50.00
15.5 goes for a pull, was short enough but he played inside the turn, missed it and the umpire's had no issue giving him out 94/9
