BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Dale Steyn403328.25145110
0.2 to WIA Fernando, a wicket second ball! Length ball this time, but wide of off stump, and again, there is some late swing. Avishka is drawn into a cut shot, but that little bit of swing away means it takes the outside edge and flies through to the keeper. Steyn's pretty happy with that.. 0/1
14.4 to PWH de Silva, edged and gone! Stallions are unraveling a bit here. This is short outside off, and Hasaranga reaches for it again, But Steyn has bowled this cross-seam and there's a little extra bounce. Wanindu gets a top edge, and Kusal Perera completes a good diving take to sew the wicket up. Steyn brings out the "reeling in the fish" celebration again.. 106/6
Vishwa Fernando402927.25113100
3.4 to KIC Asalanka, hit's back with a pretty plumb lbw. This is a cross-seamed length-ball, and Asalanka shapes to hit this over long on again. But he's late on the shot and the ball thuds into the front pad, in front of middle and off. Easy decision for the umpire. That was going on to hit middle and leg.. 32/2
18.2 to Usman Shinwari, pulled into the hands of fine leg. Stallions seriously at risk of not using their overs. This is a short ball into the body. Shinwari hacked hard at that, but doesn't connect, and Nuwan Pradeep runs in from the rope to take a smart catch. 137/9
Nuwan Pradeep403639.0076010
4.4 to J Charles, caught by Steyn running back. This is a length ball outside off, which Charles tries to bludgeon back over the bowler's head, clearing that front leg. He hits it with the upper half of his bat though, and it hangs in the air. Steyn tracks it from mid off and takes a good running catch, the ball sailing over his shoulder and into his outstretched hands.. 42/3
17.5 to Shoaib Malik, This is exactly what Stallions couldn't afford though. This is a full toss on middle stump, which Malik tries to get under and flick over the deep square leg boundary. But he doesn't connect. Gurbaz is out there on the boundary, and he runs across to pouch it safely. Stallions down to tailenders now. 132/8
19.6 to V Viyaskanth, yorker, and he bowls him this time. Viyaskanth tried only to dig this out, but is a little late on the shot and the ball clatters into middle and off.. 150/10
Asela Gunaratne402125.2540000
13.3 to M Bhanuka, low full toss, and that's a poor shot. Bhanuka should probably have done better than that. It was fired in from Gunaratne and Bhanuka tries to hammer him over the straight boundary. But he doesn't connect well, and only sends a catch to long off, who runs to his left and slides to get under it.. 101/4
13.6 to NLTC Perera, huuuuge wicket. Gunaratne slows this down and Thisara misjudges the pace. He's trying to flick this to leg for another single, but is through the shot early, and manages only to lob a catch towards short midwicket, who dives to get his hands under it. The big-hitting Thisara goes just as Stallions needed his muscle. 103/5

Usman Shinwari403508.75115030
Suranga Lakmal201819.0052040
1.5 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, there's an important breakthrough. This is a length ball angled into the stumps. Gurbaz backs away and tries to swing this over midwicket, but manages only to get a big leading edge, and the ball floats up over the bowler's head. The mid on fielder - Malik - has plenty of time to saunter around and get under it.. 19/1
Duanne Olivier3.102417.57103100
4.1 to BKG Mendis, that's not a great shot. Olivier overpitches on the stumps, and Mendis finds deep square leg with the flick. Mendis has been struggling to place it all innings long, and it has cost him his wicket. He'd hit that pretty well, to be honest. But he needed to get it much straighter. A breakthrough for Stallions after a couple of quiet overs.. 31/2
Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva402325.75141100
5.6 to BRM Taylor, that's out stumped I think! How many wickets has Hasaranga's googly got for him in this tournament? This is pitched outside off stump and Taylor doesn't read it. He aims a huge shot down the ground, and it turns back instead of turning away, Taylor misses, and he's dragged his foot out of the crease. Johnson Charles collects cleanly and takes the bails off while Taylor's foot is still in the air, trying to get back into the crease. Sharp work from the keeper, and good comeback from Hasaranga after being hit for six by Taylor. 44/3
13.2 to MDKJ Perera, gone now! Gets him with the legbreak this time. This is floated up, angled across the batsman, but a little quick through the air. It pitches and doesn't take a lot of turn. KJP is trying to hit this towards long on I think, but gets a thin outside edge which Johnson Charles gobbles up. 95/4
