Commentary

That is it from me, Suneer Chowdhary, a couple of days of break in the SLPL 2012, before we resume action from August 17. Have a great evening ahead!

Presentation:

Jehan Mubarak: I think went wrong in all three departments, bat, ball and in the field. Unlike the first game where we were competitive throughout, we were outplayed totally here. Need to look at our game, work cut out for us, but it is T20 and we can come back.

Lasith Malinga, also the man of the match: I have a good batting line-up, they batted well, we discussed that we needed to attack more than the previous game. It was a mental thing for us. Rupasinghe is a very good batsman, knows how to play in such situations, good future for the Lankan side.

First win for the Ruhuna Royals, Uthura Rudras continue to languish behind with two losses in two games. Aaron Finch and Gihan Rupashinge scored fifties for them to prop Ruhuna up before Malinga snatched four wickets to notch up an easy win. Presentation in a while.

Rambukwella to Muralitharan, OUT, 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

Malinga to Cooper, no run, this must be a record of sorts, Malinga has just completed an over of slower ones, another one, the sixth in the over and he defends it to the off side, it is also a maiden!
