BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Mohammad Amir403619.0086010
18.6 to PWH de Silva, length ball bowled way outside off, Hasaranga is defeated by the width trying to stretch to hit this after backing away from leg stump, winds up toe-slapping this softly to extra cover. Easy catch on the ring at waist height.. 175/6
Nuwan Thushara403909.7585110
Dhananjaya Lakshan403639.00103220
4.4 to J Charles, holy cow! Stunner by Gunathilaka at long-on! Slower ball lands full on fourth stump, Charles tries to heave this over long-on but the bat turns as he connects and the ball is mistimed toward Gunathilaka. He has 20 yards to cover and does so before diving left to complete the catch inches from the ground. The judging panel from Canada, Ukraine, Sudan, Namibia, Brazil and New Zealand all raise their cards to show perfect 10s!. 44/1
15.5 to DM de Silva, slower ball does the trick. Leg cutter, more like a genuine leg break, lands full on fourth stump and deviates sharply as the batsman tries to flick over mid-on, results in a skier to the off side. Carries all the way to the wide long-off rope where Shehan Jayasuriya settles himself a yard in from the rope to take a simple catch at waist height with palms facing into his body.. 139/4
17.5 to Shoaib Malik, another loopy legbreak slower ball lands short on middle, heaves this flat toward deep midwicket, not enough muscle to clear the man on the rope. Hazratullah takes this with hands in front of his face, palms facing out, a yard inside the rope.. 159/5
Sahan Arachchige403619.0021200
8.4 to WIA Fernando, flighted full on fourth stump, suckers him into a slog sweep but there's strong flight, sharp dip and it produces extra bounce to create a top edge, skied to deep midwicket where Shehan Jayasuriya settles under it before falling to his knees to cushion the catch as the ball hurtles back toward earth.. 70/3
Lakshan Sandakan4041110.2584210
7.2 to KIC Asalanka, finally lands this on a proper length and it results in a wicket. Flighted fuller to draw him onto the front foot for the first time, but not full enough to be within arm's length underneath his helmet, has to reach well in front of his body to drive awkwardly and a thick edge floats ever so gently to backward point, taken on the ring at head height.. 66/2

Dhananjaya de Silva403117.75131310
0.3 to Hazratullah Zazai, the Hazratullah gamble winds up rolling 7 out. Flighted full on off, tries to heave this over long-on but skies this straight up. Avishka at mid-off shuffles to the edge of the ring and takes an easy catch.. 1/1
Suranga Lakmal301214.00122000
1.4 to Ahsan Ali, back of a length at 133 kph seaming away on fifth stump, Ahsan doesn't need to play at this and flashes well away from his body, defeated by the extra bounce and a thin edge is easily held by Johnson Charles who is wearing a helmet standing 20 yards back to the medium pacer.. 7/3
Thisara Perera1015015.0020200
Shoaib Malik301324.33111001
8.2 to PBB Rajapaksa, Rajapaksa's valiant innings comes to an end at short third man! He charges Malik but the length is pulled back a fraction and bowled a touch wider outside off. Rajapaksa is already too committed down the pitch and keeps going on with the shot, he gets a thick toe edge that floats toward Shinwari, who shuffles right and lunges forward for a superb catch. He had two scintillating runouts from the same position in the semis, continues having an impact in with this fielding in the final.. 62/4
17.3 to SSD Arachchige, flights this more and drags it wider on sixth stump, the batsman tries to heave this over midwicket but skies this high toward long-on. Hangs up in the air toward Hasaranga who takes this above his head a yard in from the rope.. 130/9
Usman Shinwari2020210.0051200
9.5 to GSNFG Jayasuriya, wicket next ball after the bungled attempt at calling for DRS! Bouncer on the body, Jayasuriya is tucked up trying to pull and a top edge swirls to the right of Shoaib Malik at short fine leg. He shuffles 10 yards to his right along the ring and takes a simple catch reaching out at waist height in stride. Perfectly directed delivery by Shinwari.. 76/5
11.6 to D Lakshan, back of a length on sixth stump, the width was there to carve it through point but once again some extra bounce helps this clip the edge and it carries through to Charles, who is still wearing a helmet standing 20 yards back to the medium pacers.. 93/6
Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva401814.50122000
14.1 to Mohammad Amir, flighted full on fifth stump, Amir tries to slog this over midwicket, but it's a googly and skies it straighter toward long-on. The fielder Dhananjaya de Silva shuffles 15 yards to his left and takes it falling forward on his knees.. 114/8
Duanne Olivier2025112.5042200
13.5 to Azam Khan, short on fifth stump, tries to heave this over the leg side once again, but it's the slower ball offcutter and throws off his timing. The fielder at cow corner Asalanka charges in 15 yards before settling himself to take this crouching on his way tumbling on his knees into the turf.. 110/7
