Lahiru Kumara403017.5082111
16.5 to J Charles, thigh high full toss on sixth stump, should've gone for a boundary but for the second time this over Kumara gets away with it and gets some excellent assistance from Anwar Ali who reads it off the bat well before covering 10 yards to his left on the ring at mid-off and diving to pull off a sensational catch. He looks like he may have jammed his shoulder landing hard on the turf to brace himself. He's clutching at his left socket now. Will he be able to bowl later? For the moment he's staying on after coming up with a bit of brilliance to account for the well-set Charles.. 146/6
Kasun Rajitha403308.25104100
Samit Patel402807.00102130
Malinda Pushpakumara402426.00101110
12.6 to KIC Asalanka, charges the bowler, doesn't get the elevation though and picks out long-on. Full length on fourth stump, got to the pitch but the ball was not flighted much, bowled flat and came lower on the bat to deny the batsman a chance to get under it. Struck flat to the fielder coming in off the rope 10 yards to take a sharp catch on the run at waist height ranging right, great read off the bat by Anwar Ali.. 111/2
14.4 to Shoaib Malik, flighted on fourth stump, Shoaib is teased to overstretch forward looking to stroke down the ground and is beaten by the turn. Keeper Dickwella whips the bails off and roars. Third umpire confirms he's been stumped. Gem of a delivery to get second ball.. 124/4
Anwar Ali2027113.5022200
8.3 to WIA Fernando, another length ball on the stumps, tries to shovel this over long-on but doesn't middle it and it floats to the man stationed two yards inside the rope, Angelo Perera. Takes it at head height.. 68/1
Dasun Shanaka1013013.0023000
Ramesh Mendis1010110.0010100
13.5 to NLTC Perera, doesn't get away with it two shots in a row! After a miscue just barely went for six previous ball, he doesn't get the elevation trying to clear long-off and picks out Anwar Ali with a blazing flat drive. Intercepted at thigh height three yards in from the rope. The captain's self-promotion falls flat.. 120/3

Dhananjaya de Silva402315.7582000
2.5 to AK Perera, flighted it a touch more and Perera's eyes light up trying to clear mid-off, but he flubs the shot and doesn't get the elevation, splices it low to Thisara on the ring who takes the catch lunging forward on his knees to claim it at ankle height. Poor shot to put it mildly but clever change of pace and flight to tease him into the shot.. 18/2
Suranga Lakmal302418.0095000
1.5 to SR Patel, length ball wide outside off, drives hard and gets a thick edge high toward deep third man. Unlike Rajitha in the first innings who spilled a sitter at deep fine leg, Shoaib Malik is there with safe hands on the rope to take this crouching on his knees.. 11/1
Usman Shinwari201306.5083000
Shoaib Malik10808.0021001
Charith Asalanka10717.0021000
8.2 to N Dickwella, stands upright this time to prod past a full ball on off, big lbw shout upheld after a long ponder by the umpire. Dickwella calls for the review but there's no edge. And he was hit in line with the stumps. No doubt it was ripping out middle.. 62/3
Duanne Olivier403518.75104130
17.4 to RTM Mendis, full on off, tries to shovel this over mid-off in the ring but doesn't get the elevation, Shinwari has been a magnet for the ball in the field and he backpedals from the ring to take this catch with palms facing into the body at rib height.. 122/9
Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva411533.75152000
10.6 to Samiullah Shinwari, prods down the wrong line reaching a long way forward. Ambitious shout but given out! Looked like there was plenty of doubt as to whether he was struck in line with off stump but he was hit below the knee roll. Samiullah wants to call for the review but it's already been burned earlier by Dickwella.. 73/5
14.6 to WU Tharanga, thin edge well held! Flighted full on fourth stump, encouraged the drive from Tharanga and the batsman backs away again from leg trying to clear extra cover. Instead it's a clearly audible edge well held by Charles. Tharanga's painstaking innings is finally put out of its misery as he walks before the umpire raises a finger. Not for the first time this tourney, Hasaranga decimates a lineup.. 96/7
16.1 to PM Pushpakumara, sharp catch at slip! Good length ball on sixth stump, top spinner skids to produce an edge on a cut that goes fine into the slip fielder's lap. Straightforward catch. This leggie has been something else in the LPL!. 108/8
Chaturanga de Silva0.10010.0010000
19.1 to CAK Rajitha, flighted full on fourth stump and skids on, batsman goes to slog sweep and misses. Middle and off stump are knocked back and the bails light up on their way to the earth. Jaffna Stallions with a brilliant fightback in the field to win by 37 runs.. 128/10
