BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Usman Shinwari4044111.0093302
16.5 to CAK Walton, gone now. Shinwari gets a little bit of revenge. This is full and well wide of off stump. Walton tires to launch this back over the bowler's head, and gets a thick outside edge that Tom Moores takes care of behind the stumps. Another fine cameo for Gladiators, but they could have done with Walton batting on for a couple more overs.. 152/5
Dhananjaya de Silva402716.7592100
13.3 to PBB Rajapaksa, wonderful catch! Thisara Perera is having some tournament. Bhanuka is down the track turning this ball into a low full toss, and he could have hit it anywhere. But he smears it to the left of Thisara at short cover, and though it's been hit incredibly hard, Thisara flings himself to the left and takes the catch two-handed.. 114/3
Suranga Lakmal201819.0033000
12.3 to Azam Khan, Azam's salvo ends. But he's given Gladiators an injection of energy. This is length on the stumps, which he tries to larrup over the cow corner boundary as he has a couple of times in the innings. Mis-hits this one though, and it settles in the hands of long on, who has run towards deep midwicket to get under it. 110/2
Duanne Olivier2023011.5034020
Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva402927.2562100
8.3 to Ahsan Ali, gets a breakthrough with a slow, turning delivery outside off. Ahsan ran down the track at him and got nowhere close to the pitch of the ball, as Hasaranga had pulled the length back. He goes through with the shot anyway and gets a huge top edge - the ball turning away from him. It goes very high and would have landed between where mid off and mid on stand, but Hasaranga tracks this one down himself and takes a very good catch. Hasaranga's excellent tournament continues.. 67/1
14.2 to MD Gunathilaka, oh no! Gunathilaka, what have you done? He takes a big risk against Stallions' best bowler, and it hasn't paid off. Goes for a pre-meditated reverse sweep, but Hasaranga has bowled this quicker and flatter. Gunathilaka can't get under it, and he only manages to send it straight to short fine leg, where Olivier takes the catch. End of an excellent innings, but Gladiators now have two new batsmen at the crease.. 118/4

Shehan Jayasuriya302016.6681110
3.4 to TJ Moores, Moores had absolutely no idea about that one. Much slower arm ball from Jayasuriya, who angles this into the batsman. He's down the pitch but misreads both the flight and the pace, and it slips between bat and pad and into middle and off.. 26/1
Asitha Fernando403027.5084000
13.6 to M Bhanuka, finally a breakthrough Gladiators! It's from a low full toss but it doesn't matter. This is a knee-high ball that is picked up and swung into the legside from Bhanuka. He's picked out that legside sweeper perfectly though. Dhananjaya Lakshan juggles it once but holds on. End of a decent Bhanuka innings.. 125/2
16.3 to NLTC Perera, but he's gone now. Straight to backward square leg. This is overpitched on the toes, and Thisara flicks this powerfully and aerially, but it's pretty much straight to Lakshan Sandakan there, who takes a sharp catch, tumbling over. 145/3
Akila Dananjaya3.4042111.4584300
19.1 to Shoaib Malik, Googly to start, and I think that's out! Malik stepped out and tried to send this screaming through cover, but he's hit that slightly in the air, and Lakshan Dhananjaya has done incredibly well at short cover to dive to his right and pluck a catch while the ball was traveling rapidly past him. Not sure this will be enough to stop Stallions, Lakshan's performance in the last few overs has been fantastic. 168/5
Dhananjaya Lakshan302418.0082120
17.6 to WIA Fernando, what an over from Lakshan! Created three chances and this one is finally taken. This is a short of a length delivery, again getting a little extra bounce, that Avihska tries to launch over long on. But he gets it off the top half of the bat and it goes high into the night. Long on runs in and gets under it. DHananjaya Lakshan has brough Galle back into the game. 152/4
