View dismissal AJ Finch c Kapugedera b Mills 65 48 6 2 135.41
15.6 gone this time, caught at long-on off a full-toss, so that is the end of the innings for Ruhuna Royals, he knew as soon as he had hit it, he knew that he had mistimed it. 145/3
View dismissal RJMGM Rupasinghe c Udawatte b Mubarak 50 35 5 2 142.85
10.5 bouncer! That is nothing short of a bouncer from a spinner, went over the batsman's face and he has pulled him straight to the deep square-leg fielder, what a ball to get a wicket! 97/1
View dismissal LPC Silva run out (Kapugedera/Mills) 19 14 2 0 135.71
15.2 Mills to Finch, yorker length, hits the toe end of the bat and dug out to long-on, they get a single but go for the second too, fielded and thrown back well by Kapugedera and Mills gathers it clean, dislodges the bails and sends back the non-striker 137/2

View dismissal Imran Farhat lbw b Malinga 0 2 0 0 0.00
0.2 gone, yorker, misses and lbw! Again a full pitched ball, it was one of the closest definitions of a toe-crusher, hits him flush on the leg stump, the umpire has no hesitation giving it out and Uthura are one down for nothing 0/1
View dismissal ML Udawatte c Taylor b Lakshitha 8 13 1 0 61.53
4.3 wide outside the off and slashed it down the third-man's laps, he makes it look slightly more difficult than it was but the end result matters, three down and going nowhere with the required-rate 22/3
View dismissal BRM Taylor b Malinga 12 9 2 0 133.33
2.5 bowled 'em! Another yoker, another wicket! In terms of line and length, this was a perfect yorker, and helped by Taylor who missed it and the ball finds its way to hit the base of the stumps, two down without too many on the board 17/2
View dismissal CK Kapugedera c †Jayawardene b Harris 4 9 0 0 44.44
6.4 gone, caught behind! Not a yorker but very full and he went for the drive, gets an outside feather, the keeper's up to the stumps and he still manages to grab it well, after bit of a fumble if I may add 34/4
View dismissal J Mubarak* c Rambukwella b Taylor 28 18 3 0 155.55
10.4 slower on his pads and that has been flicked to the short fine-leg! It was a decent slower ball but a bad line, should have been spanked away for four, instead he has holed out, simple catch straight to the fielder 79/5
View dismissal MF Maharoof c Harris b Shahid Afridi 32 17 1 3 188.23
12.1 gone, slogged and caught at long-on! it was short and with the required-rate touching 15, he had to go for it, but did not hit anywhere near the middle of the bat and is easily caught at wide long-on 95/8
View dismissal LJP Gunaratne c Lakshitha b Malinga 1 2 0 0 50.00
11.1 gone, caught at deep point, six down! Outside the off, pitched fuller and slower too, he tries to slash it over the boundary, gets it far but not far enough, caught well over his head 83/6
View dismissal KD Mills b Malinga 0 1 0 0 0.00
11.4 slower one, on the length and bowled! This has not been such a good day for Mills, it was not quick which sent his defensive stroke a tad awry, missed the length and the off stump gets rattled 90/7
View dismissal KPCM Peiris run out (†Jayawardene) 7 7 1 0 100.00
14.2 Malinga to Muralitharan, another slower one and this time Murali tries to slog it away, misses and the non-striker wants a single, Muralia responds, PJ has a shy at the stumps, hits it and Peiris is gone! 114/9
View dismissal M Muralitharan c Silva b Rambukwella 6 11 0 0 54.54
15.5 goes for another slog and it looks like it has been caught at long-on, Murali thinks it might have bounced before it went into Silva's hands, but he is sent on his way by the on-field umpires, win for Ruhuna 118/10
