Maheesh Theekshana402917.2581200
18.4 to Mohammad Nabi, Takes a good return catch! Carrom ball outside off, and Nabi tries to flat bat this down the ground, it's straight back at Theekshana who uses every inch of his tall frame to leap over head and take the catch.. 166/4
Asitha Fernando403418.50113200
15.3 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, And Gurbaz's fantastic innings comes to an end! This was full outside off, and Gurbaz looks to heave this across the line. Ends up getting a top edge that goes high towards Hasaranga at deep midwicket, who does well to keep his eyes on the ball and take a pressure-filled catch.. 139/2
Dilshan Madushanka403629.0084121
4.5 to Hazratullah Zazai, off stump pegged back! You felt like something was gonna give - either a boundary or a wicket, and it is the latter. Back of a length outside off and angling into off stump. Ball stays a shade low with Zazai trying to slog across the line. He misses, Madushanka hits.. 46/1
17.2 to Ibrahim Zadran, Scooped but straight to short fine leg! This was premeditated as Ibrahim goes across the crease early. Madushanka spots the move and slows it right up. Ibrahim goes through with the stroke, but he only manages height without distance. Simple catch at fine leg.. 151/3

Fazalhaq Farooqi3.1034010.7356010
Mujeeb Ur Rahman403027.5091210
8.6 to P Nissanka, wicket off the wide ball! Nissanka gets back to cut off this wide ball outside off, but perhaps the extra bounce does the trick. Big edge, but swiftly into Gurbaz's gloves, so credit to him for grabbing onto it. No turn this time, looks like the carrom ball.. 80/2
14.1 to MD Shanaka, Brilliance on the boundary from Najeeb! This is a full toss that's absolutely creamed down the ground by Shanaka. It's hit flat and hard, but Najeeb balances himself on the line and takes it, with his back foot agonisingly close to the ropes. He's then about to go over so he pops it up, and takes it once coming back inside. And yes, the third umpire has given the all clear!. 119/4
6.3 to BKG Mendis, Massive wicket! Momentum broken. Mendis wants to continue hitting but Naveen has cramped him with a short ball angling into his chest. Attempts the pull but doesn't really have the opportunity to have a full followthrough of the shot. Down deep midwicket's throat.. 62/1
18.3 to PBB Rajapaksa, Slower ball cleans him up! And Rajapaksa can't see it through. Goes across the line, looking to win this in style, but he's way early on the stroke, as his off stump is rattled. But what a cameo this has been!. 174/6
Rashid Khan403919.7563200
16.4 to MD Gunathilaka, Gunathilaka goes for one sweep too many, and he's castled! Rashid gets his man in the end, as Gunathilaka goes across the line and misses completely. The off peg is disturbed. Is this yet another twist in this game?. 151/5
Mohammad Nabi403418.5051200
11.3 to KIC Asalanka, Inside edge on to the stumps! Goes for the big slog sweep, but only manages to deflect it onto the stumps.. 94/3
