Samaraweera: "We lost it in the end overs. We have to think about the death bowling, 4 overs for 70 is too much. They also bowled well."

Dilshan: "If we carry on like this we have a good chance of making the final four. I didn't make too many runs in the last few ODIs so this knock was important. We knew that the ball would get wet after a few overs. We have the experience of Hodge in the middle order. We have sounded a warning to the other teams."

That's it from us today. Two more tomorrow from Colombo. Uthura v Wayamba and then Uva v Basnahira. Thanks for your company. Cheers!

End of match: So a lopsided encounter comes to an end. The first game was more even. Dilshan should be the Player of the Match, surely - 66 runs, 2 wickets, a run-out and a catch, he was everywhere.

That ends day 1 of the SLPL. Stretched a bit because of the rain. It's still early days so Kandurata and Ruhuna shouldn't despair.

Langeveldt to Dilhara, no run, swing and a miss and that's a pacy delivery, makes no difference, game over for Kandurata
Langeveldt to Dilhara, no run, swings and misses another slower ball
Langeveldt to Sohail Tanvir, 1 run, low full toss outside off and forced to long-off
Langeveldt to Dilhara, 1 run, fuller delivery and hammered along the turf to long-on
Langeveldt to Dilhara, 2 runs, pulls in front of square and deep midwicket runs across to cut it off
Langeveldt to Dilhara, no run, slower ball and another desperate swing, misses it

The next six balls are a formality
