Commentary

That is it from this game. Another one starts in twenty minutes.

Chathuranga Kumara is the Man of the Match for his three wickets

Mahela: "We were behind the eight ball after we lost the toss on that sticky wicket. Last six overs, the two left-handers got us a fighting total. Young guys put up their hands and performed, good to see the energy in the field. Senior lot will take the responsibility, young guys need to go out and have fun, that is how they will learn, with a relaxed mind."

Kandamby: "We did not capitalise after Jacob started really well. He is in very good form, gave us a brilliant start in the last game also. 147 is very much gettable, we did not bat well, did not do basics right."

Oram took the most wickets and made the most runs for his side, but still ended up on the losing side. Wayamba recovered from 18 for 3 and then kept taking wickets regularly during Uva's chase. Keep an eye out for Akila Dananjaya, 18, bowls a mix of offbreaks, legbreaks, sliders, the works.

Udana to Oram, OUT, that is it then, Oram is run out by some way, he has slowed down between the wickets over the years and was never going to make it after drilling the full delivery to extra cover, the throw arrived on target to the bowler, wonder why Oram was attempting the single to give strike to No 11

END OF OVER:
18 | 10 Runs 1 Wkt | UvNxt: 127/9

KS: "As a SL fan, I'm excited about the prospect that is Akila Dhananjaya. Let's just hope he doesn't suffer from Ajantha Mendis syndrome."

Kumara to Fernando, no run, goes for the yorker, not exactly in the blockhole, Dilhara pats it away

Mahela is at wide slip, in the 18th over

Kumara to Oram, 1 run, turns a full one off the pad to midwicket
17.4
W
Kumara to Umar Gul, OUT, Gul departs, not a great stroke to play, given he had Oram waiting at the other end, he has basically holed out here, not in control at all as he looked to go over extra cover
17.3
2
Kumara to Umar Gul, 2 runs, swings the free hit high over square leg, fielder cannot get to the ball in time to 'catch' it
17.3
5nb
Kumara to Umar Gul, (no ball) FOUR runs, full, wide, Gul throws his bat at it, gets four with a thick edge past the keeper, and it is called a no-ball, front foot landed comfortably before the line, no way that was a front-foot no ball
