Commentary

Update: It is official, the Uva Next are the first Sri Lanka Premier League champions, winning by 19 on the Duckworth-Lewis system!

Not the best way to win a final but the given the benefits it brings for the champion side, they will take it with both hands! Uva have also qualified for the Champions League T20 this season, becoming the 14th and final side to make it to the tournament.

11.59 pm: Oh gosh, just as it was turning out to be exciting, it's started pelting down. And it is heavy let me assure you. However, with five overs having been bowled, we should have a result and according to the DL score, Uva are 19 runs ahead!

5.1
6
Chameera to Prasanna, SIX runs, outside the off stump, short of length and it has been bludgeoned over long-on for another six!

End of the Powerplay overs, 31 runs have come off the last two overs. The required rate is down to eight an over. Chameera comes on now.

Munaweera has surpassed Mathews as the leading run-scorer in the tournament. Don't think anyone can surpass him now!

END OF OVER:
5 | 16 Runs | UvNxt: 57/1
