Presentation:

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.
