11pm Phew, look the celebrations in the Sri Lanka camp. Asela sets off on a celebratory sprint. His team-mates finally track him down and mob him. SL slid to 40 for 5. They needed 79 off the last seven overs, and 48 off the last three. Asela said no problem and caught fire, lacing three successive sixes off Henriques and then muscling three boundaries in the last over off Tye to seal a stunning last-ball win for the visitors.
Asela Gunaratne, Man of the Match [he is really shy to talk]: It is a very happy moment.
Finch: When you got an in-batter in it is tough. That was one hell of an innings. I thought the way we bowled in the middle was outstanding. When you have a good player in good form, they hurt you. Sri Lanka played very well there. Take nothing away from them. We have been on the receiving end again. The series is gone, hopefully we can salvage something in Adelaide.
Tharanga: Asela's was an amazing innings. Even in South Africa he has done well. We lost too many wickets early but Asela finished the game for us. Winning in Australia is a huge achievement. This is Asela's first tour to Australia and we are happy.
Uwaisul Karnain: "Very well Played Asela, now sit back and watch the IPL Auction tomorrow!"
HSR: "Right before IPL auction, AG Presenting his strong case."
Karthik: "Two nail bitters in one day #NZvsSA #AUSvsSL. Can't take anymore. "
Must Hamid: "Highest Scorer with the Bat and Most Expensive with the Bowl for His Team... What a day it was for Henriques !!"
Silva: "one should not forget Kapu's contribution at a-run-a-ball which helped stabilise the innings!"
SamSL: "Asela's inning can be one of the best T20I innings from a Sri Lankan ever...."
That is all we have for you from this thriller. Hope you enjoyed this game as much as we did bringing it to you. Thanks for tuning in. Do comeback for the final T20 in Adelaide. Until next time, ciao.
