Commentary

Presentation

Samaraweera Did not bat well first 10 overs, then Perera played rather well. Then we did not field too well. I think we lack in bowling upfront and in the death, batting wise we need fire at the top. Hopefully Jayasuriya will be fit to play and Perera will be fit to bowl four overs,

Mathews Couldn't have asked for any better, bowlers did well in the first half and then the openers batted well. Prety good performance overall.

Imran Nazir is the man of the match and before they have a chance to talk to him, a heavy downpour ends the presentation. That's a first time I have seen this, rain abandons the presentation!

So that is it from me, Suneer Chowdhary, there, will be back with you for tomorrow's game between Ruhuna and Uthura. Have a very good evening!

Despite winning with only two balls to spare, the result never looked in doubt after the kind of start the two Pakistani openers, Shehzad and Nazir gave them. The Kanduratas seemed to have lost the game in the first 10 overs of their batting when they got almost nothing. Of course, poor fielding did not help Kanduratas' cause too much.

Back in some time with the presentation.

Kulasekara to Mushfiqur Rahim, 1 no ball, aah, that is disappointing, a no-ball to end the game, he had punched it through the covers too, so would have been a run anyway

Kulasekara to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, another one, he has missed another one, beaten outside the off stump, pressure for the Bangladeshi captain, the fielders are all close now and as much as he isn't getting them away, he will have to go over the in-field!

All fielders are inside the circle now

Kulasekara to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, another slap attempted and another one missed, he was going over mid-wicket for the second time but gets no bat on it.

Kulasekara to Mushfiqur Rahim, no run, short of length, goes for a hoick over mid-wicket, an inside-edge on to the pads and there was an appeal for lbw, not-out but no run either.

END OF OVER:

Saeed Ajmal to Mathews, SIX runs, it was getting that very slight bit nervy for the batting team but Mathews unleashes his slog sweep that goes over deep mid-wicket for a six!

Saeed Ajmal to Mathews, no run, turn for Ajmal, sharp one too, he was going down the track, but the sudden turn beats his bat, hits pad and there is no run
