Nuwan Pradeep4046011.5036110
19.3 to MD Shanaka, full and on off stump, Shanaka tries to muscle this down the ground again, but mis-hits it totally, because Naveen has bowled a near-yorker. Seekkuge Prasanna runs in from long off to complete the catch. End of an excellent Shanaka innings.. 191/3
19.5 to SR Patel, length ball outside off. Patel tries to smear this over mid off, but ends up mis-hitting it high into the air. Cover settles under the catch. 193/4
Kavishka Anjula3045015.0053420
Dilruwan Perera301806.0062000
Asela Gunaratne302026.6662000
6.2 to N Dickwella, terrible short selection. That was a pre-meditated reverse-sweep, but Asela has possibly seen him coming and fires it in short. Dickwella should have bailed out of the shot but goes through with it anyway, and can only spoon a catch to point.. 53/1
8.5 to WU Tharanga, that's pressure creating this wicket. Excellent bowling from Asela and Dilruwan forced Upul Tharanga to come down the pitch and aim a six over long on. The ball was on to him quicker than he expected however, and all Tharanga manages to do is hit it down long on's throat.. 64/2

Lahiru Kumara2021010.5062130
Anwar Ali201316.5052000
1.4 to MDKJ Perera, oh no! KJP what have you done? This is a back of a length ball on the stumps and KJP absolutely nails the pull shot, flat and hard. But he's picked out deep midwicket so perfectly, the fielder barely has to move. That's a big blow for Tuskers, who really could have done with big runs from their captain, who had been in form.. 14/1
Samit Patel2.4027010.1252200
Malinda Pushpakumara1010110.0030101
5.1 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, loopy yorker first up and oh my, this has completely done Gurbaz in. This is nicely flighted, but still surprising to see Gurbaz bested by this. It floats in between bat and pad and hits the base of off stump. This is a vital wicket because it puts Viikings ahead on D/L, with rain in the air.. 50/2
Ramesh Mendis10606.0031000
Lahiru Madushanka10414.0020000
8.4 to PHKD Mendis, short again, up at the chest, and Kamindu, and oh no, holes out. He gets the pull shot out again, but picks out the deep midwicket fielder. I think that caught the bottom of the bat so the timing wasn't quite there. Tuskers keep losing wickets just as they threaten to get a partnership together.. 74/3
