Kandurata Warriors v Nagenahira Nagas

Nagenahira Nagas won by 7 wickets (with 3 balls remaining)

False start from Eranga, hit by a moth in his eye as he was running in to bowl.

7.59 pm Samaraweera and Kaushal Silva opening for Kandurata. Shaminda Eranga has the ball.

Our man at the ground, Andrew Fernando says that the ground is almost completely empty, probably because the local team isn't playing.

0.1

Eranga to Samaraweera, no run, on the off stump and moving away from the bat, signs of swing, shoulders bat and lets that go.

0.2

Eranga to Samaraweera, no run, this time it is a tad closer to the bat, forward and defends it to the off side, not for a run though

0.3

Eranga to Samaraweera, no run, on the middle stump and the batsman was giving himself room to go over the extra-cover, pitched up slightly fuller than the ones before, had to defend it in the end

0.4

Eranga to Samaraweera, no run, short of length and defended on the back foot to the leg-side, the score's still to make its first move forward

0.5

Eranga to Samaraweera, 1 run, this was pitched up and was shaping up to swing back in, instead it swings away and takes the edge of the bat through to the third-man region, misses the point fielder

0.6

Eranga to Silva, no run, that's a beauty, on the off stump and slightly deviating away, beats the outside edge of the bat to end an excellent over!

3.1

7.1

Laughlin to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, outside the off stump, bit of width from the new bowler, lazily cuts it away and almost goes to the point fielder, through to the sweeper who runs to his left to field it, could have been a second there

8.3

Alvitigala to Vithanage, no run, slightly fuller and outside the off stump, went for a flashy cut, the lack of pace beats the batsman, through to the keeper

8.4

Alvitigala to Vithanage, FOUR, same line, same length except that it was pacier and the batsman goes for a full-bloodied cut, over the point fielder on the bounce for a four!

8.5

Alvitigala to Vithanage, no run, that is the third successive delivery with the same length and line, and this time the batsman fails to execute the cut, misses

8.6

Alvitigala to Vithanage, FOUR, he misses the off-stump line on this occasion, pitched on the leg stump, the batsman was almost falling over to the off side and was still able to flick it away almost for a six! Third umpire needed to adjudicate on whether or not it was a six, it is a four.

End of over 9 (9 runs) Kandurata Warriors 57/2
KDK Vithanage    24* (23b 4x4)      KG Alvitigala    3-0-24-1
Misbah-ul-Haq    15* (13b 2x4)      B Laughlin    1-0-5-0

9.1

Mendis to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, shorter and defended on the back foot, back to the bowler

9.2

Mendis to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 run, on his pads, wants to flick it, but hits the pad and rolls over to square-leg

9.3

Mendis to Vithanage, OUT, gone, undone by the off-spin, stumped! The batsman gave his hand away too soon, came down the pitch before Mendis had released the ball and he shortened the length, spun it away and the batsman missed, the keeper did not and the bails are whipped away for the second time by Rahim.

KDK Vithanage st †Mushfiqur Rahim b Mendis 24 (24b 4x4 0x6) SR: 100.00

9.4

Mendis to Styris, no run, pitched right up to the bat, defended to the off side off the front foot

9.5

Mendis to Styris, no run, slightly shorter, on the good length, pushed forward again, Styris is coming off an excellent century recently

9.6

Mendis to Styris, no run, goes down the track and wants to drive it through the covers, does not hit the middle of the bat and it just rolls over to the off side

End of over 10 (1 run) Kandurata Warriors 58/3
SB Styris    0* (3b)      BAW Mendis    2-0-10-1

10.4

Pathirana to Styris, no run, quicker and darting in to the bat, defended back to the bowler

10.5

Pathirana to Styris, OUT, short, wide and cut in front of cover to get out! Not too often will you such a dismissal, it was short and wide and he has cut it to short-cover, the ball probably did not come on too well and Styris was early in his stroke. I smell trouble for the batting side.

SB Styris c Mathews b Pathirana 1 (6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 16.66

Thisara Perera at six. Needs a start here.

10.6

Pathirana to Perera, no run, fuller, on the middle, driven to the right of the bowler, who gets to it to prevent any chance of a single

End of over 11 (3 runs) Kandurata Warriors 61/4
NLTC Perera    0* (1b)      SS Pathirana    3-0-16-2

11.2

Laughlin to Perera, no run, short of length, on the off stump, pushed to short mid-wicket

11.3

Laughlin to Perera, no run, a slower ball that leaps up from length, Perera was looking to defend before he was hurried into evading it

Laughlin to Perera, 1 run, another slower ball and Perera again hits it through the line, pops up through mid-off for a single

11.6

Laughlin to Misbah-ul-Haq, FOUR, outside the off stump, slower and Misbah has not tried to hit too hard, just places it in the gap between long-on and square-leg, some positive movement in the score

Misbah-ul-Haq    23* (19b 3x4)      B Laughlin    2-0-13-0

12.1

Pathirana to Perera, 2 runs, full on the off stump and he paddle sweeps it to fine-leg for a single, no wait, they have run really quickly to come back for the second run

12.2

Pathirana to Perera, SIX, shorter and shot! What a shot! it has been smacked over mid-wicket for a six!

12.5

Pathirana to Misbah-ul-Haq, 1 leg bye, flighted by the bowler this, brave bowling, Misbah tries to whip it across through mid-wicket and misses, there was an appeal for an lbw but rightly given not-out, would have missed the sixth stump probably

12.6

Pathirana to Perera, 1 run, on his pads and he tries to crack it over square-leg again, gets it flat on the ground to the deep fielder for a run

End of over 13 (15 runs) Kandurata Warriors 84/4
NLTC Perera    17* (10b 1x4 1x6)      SS Pathirana    4-0-30-2
Misbah-ul-Haq    23* (20b 3x4)      B Laughlin    2-0-13-0

13.1

Alvitigala to Perera, FOUR, outside the off stump and that has been punched down the ground for a four, powerfully stroked away by Perera, brilliant counter-attack this

13.2

Alvitigala to Perera, 1 run, goes for it again, wants to pull it away but it was too full to be pulled and it gets an inside edge to the leg side for a single

13.3

Alvitigala to Misbah-ul-Haq, no run, outside the off, the batsman was moving towards the ball and does not get too much room, defends it back to the bowler

13.4

Misbah-ul-Haq    24* (22b 3x4)      SS Pathirana    4-0-30-2

Mendis is back now. 1/10 in his two. Exciting battle between Mendis and Perera here.

14.1

Mendis to Perera, 1 run, slower on the leg stump, slogs it hard but the slowness of the ball does not allow him to time it as well as he would have liked, goes to deep mid-wicket for a single

14.2

Mendis to Misbah-ul-Haq, OUT, gone, snick, caught! It was so short that it should have been sent away packing, but it also meant that Misbah went hard at it and only managed an outside edge, Mushfiqur takes a smart catch and Mendis has his revenge after being hit for those two early boundaries by the same batsman

Misbah-ul-Haq c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Mendis 24 (23b 3x4 0x6) SR: 104.34

LHD Dilhara    1* (3b)      KG Alvitigala    4-0-31-1

15.1

Eranga to Perera, FOUR, slashed away for a four, the fielder ran from third-man to try and stop it but the good effort went in vain, it was short and wide and cut well

15.2

Eranga to Perera, FOUR, fuller this time, and he has hit it as if he was waiting for this changed length, drills it down the track for a four between long-on and long-off

15.3

Eranga to Perera, 1 run, slower on the off stump, cuts it but the lack of pace allows it go only as far as the fielder deep on the cover fence, a single gets Perera away from strike

15.4

Eranga to Dilhara, 1 run, short of length, angling into the batsman, he was on the back foot, flicked it away to fine-leg for a single

15.5

Eranga to Perera, SIX, slogged for six, such power! this was outside the off stump and quick enough but he has swung across the line and that has gone sailing over mid-wicket for a six!

15.6

Eranga to Perera, FOUR, another four, poor fielding by the fielder at the sweeper region, it was cut hard again and the diving fielder should have restricted it to two, instead it sneaks through

End of over 16 (20 runs) Kandurata Warriors 114/5
NLTC Perera    44* (21b 5x4 2x6)      RMS Eranga    3-0-26-0
LHD Dilhara    2* (4b)      BAW Mendis    3-0-13-2

The ante has been upped, 44 from 21 for Perera. Still they need to get to at least 150. A wicket here will be crucial for Nagenahira.

16.1

Mendis to Dilhara, no run, shorter, outside the off stump and the pull is unleashed, does not connect

16.2

Mendis to Dilhara, 1 run, outside the off stump, shorter, pushes it to the off side for a quick single

16.3

Mendis to Perera, SIX, slog swept away for a six! Perera gets his 50 with that shot, a replica of his previous six, it was shorter and he has swatted it over mid-wicket for a biggie!

16.4

Mendis to Perera, 2 runs, outside edge and for a couple of runs to third-man, he was swinging it away again and gets an outside edge, ran away quickly in that vacant region

16.5

Mendis to Perera, 2 runs, shorter on the pads, nudged away to the deep square-leg region for a couple of runs

16.6

Mendis to Perera, SIX, Perera's on song, on fire...he is just on right, this was fuller from Mendis and he has smoked it over long-on for another six, this is assuming Chris Gaylesque proportions now, 25 balls for his 60.

End of over 17 (17 runs) Kandurata Warriors 131/5
NLTC Perera    60* (25b 5x4 4x6)      BAW Mendis    4-0-30-2
LHD Dilhara    3* (6b)      RMS Eranga    3-0-26-0

17.1

Laughlin to Dilhara, 1 run, slower one outside the off stump, wants to go over mid-wicket, mistimed stroke allows them to get a single and bring the basher on strike

17.2

Laughlin to Perera, 1 run, another one attempted to hit hard, gets an outside edge through to deep cover, single for the batsman

17.4

Laughlin to Dilhara, 1 run, full, outside the the off stump, and the batsman can only drive it through to long-off for a single

17.5

Laughlin to Perera, 1 run, outside the off stump, fuller and Perera tries to play a cheeky lap shot, hits the bottom of the bat and gets him only a single

17.6

Laughlin to Dilhara, no run, slower one and the batsman goes down the track to hit it, more of the other way around I think, he went down the pitch and the bowler slowed it down, gets nowhere close to the bat, misses through to the keeper

End of over 18 (6 runs) Kandurata Warriors 137/5
LHD Dilhara    5* (9b)      B Laughlin    3-0-19-0

Eranga to bowl his last.

18.1

Eranga to Perera, (no ball) FOUR, full-toss on the middle and that bludgeoned to the left of long-on, the fielder had to move four yards to his left and he could not get to the ball. And did I tell you it was a huge no-ball this, which brings up a Free-hit

18.1

Eranga to Perera, 2 runs, full-toss, hits high on the bat, goes to long-on and they are off for a quick couple of runs

Eranga to Perera, 1 run, finally a yorker length ball, outside the off stump, and Perera can only drive it down the ground for a single

18.3

Eranga to Dilhara, no run, short ball outside the off stump but it was also an off-spinner, the shot was played an year before the delivery arrived, he misses it

18.4

Eranga to Dilhara, 2 runs, outside the off stump, pitched right up and driven over the in-field for a couple of runs, sweeper tidies it up by running to his right

18.5

Eranga to Dilhara, 1 run, another slower one and it has been swung away to the leg side, but only for a single

18.6

Eranga to Perera, 1 run, pitched right up to the bat, without it being as full as a full-toss and the swing does not connect, only a single to short fine-leg

End of over 19 (12 runs) Kandurata Warriors 149/5
NLTC Perera    72* (32b 6x4 4x6)      RMS Eranga    4-0-38-0
LHD Dilhara    8* (12b)      B Laughlin    3-0-19-0

19.1

Laughlin to Perera, OUT, that was another across the line swipe attempted but this time he does not get the direction he needed, gets more of a leading edge and it goes really high, spoons up in the air for the long-off fielder to pouch it safely

NLTC Perera c Jayasundera b Laughlin 72 (33b 6x4 4x6) SR: 218.18

19.2

Laughlin to Dilhara, 1 run, full outside the off stump, bends his knee and smacks it over to long-off for a single

19.3

Laughlin to Lokuarachchi, OUT, slower and timber! It was on the middle stump and an off-cutter, he had moved over to the off side and his bat did not come down in the same direction where the ball was headed, bat missed, stumps hit

KS Lokuarachchi b Laughlin 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

150 was brought up earlier this over.

19.4

Laughlin to Kulasekara, SIX, Perera or no, that's gone for a six, a huge six when one looks at the height, slower and slogged over deep mid-wicket!

19.5

Laughlin to Kulasekara, 1 run, yorker length, pushed down the ground for a single

19.6

Laughlin to Dilhara, 2 runs, outside the off stump, fuller and that is slashed away over point, the sweeper runs to his left and fields it well but cannot stop them from taking the second

A challenging target if 160 for Nagenahiras, after Kandurata were only 58 in the first 10. Perera did most of the damage; he scored 72 off 33 and off the remaining near-15 overs, the team made only 88.

Back in 10 with the chase
