Presentation

Mahela Jayawardene: Great to see so many fans, boys put up a decent show for them. Akila is looking good, he is enjoying his cricket, everyone's doing their job which is a good thing. Azhar is a quality performer and that makes us spoilt for choices.

T Dilshan: Did not bowl well first six-seven overs, restricted them well later, but then did not bat well. My plan was to bat throughout but got out and that put pressure on the others.

Kamran Akmal is the man of the match for his half-century, his second this tournament. He hopes he will continue his form for the Australia series next.

Basnahira's tournament has hit a roadblock, they won the first match before losing three in a row. MJ's Wayamba now have three wins from three games and are mostly only a win away from making it to the semi-finals. Presentation in some time.
