Presentation

Dilshan: Really disappointed with the result, we started well as a bowling unit, lost the game in the 17th and 18th over, we had enough runs on the board, but did not bowl in the last few overs.

Mubarak: We finally got there, some jitters to begin with but did well, the boys have worked hard there, we thought we had not done well in the first half of the batting, but Chamara played one of the best innings I have seen. We have made mistakes as a team and that has cost us.

Kapugedera, man of the match: I am proud of that knock, great to get a win under our belt, those things (Mubarak's run-out) happen in cricket, I felt I had to bat through and win the game for the side, I knew it was going to be difficult to hit against the spin so waited for them to bring on the pace bowlers.

That's it from me here, am Suneer Chowdhary and it has been a delight bringing you these games, will be back on Friday with the Wayamba-Kandurata match. Till then, have a very good evening!

One of the best wins in a chase this SLPL, superb innings from Chamara Kapugedera, some support from Dillon du Preez and while mathemtically anything is possible, the Basnahira Cricket Dundee can bid their chances of making it to the semi-finals goodbye. Back in a few minutes with the presentation.
