Tharindu Ratnayake is the player of the match. Thanks for joining us today. Good night

Though Chandimal was blazing at one end, one always felt that left themselves a lot to get towards the final overs of the match. In hindsight, they should've gone after one of the spinners. They got 79 runs off 15 overs of spin

19.6
4
C Karunaratne to Chandimal, FOUR runs

short ball down the leg stump line! Chandimal pulls and gets a boundary. He falls down on his back as he played the stroke. Karunaratne is the hero of the moment. He bowled a stellar over for the final over of the game

A six required off the final delivery

19.5
2
C Karunaratne to Chandimal, 2 runs

fuller ball outside the off stump. He lofts it to wide long-off and gets himself a couple

19.4
C Karunaratne to Chandimal, no run

miscues the slog to deep midwicket and doesn't take a run

19.3
W
C Karunaratne to Chameera, OUT

yes he will! But it's a wicket! Short ball outside the off stump. He looks to pull it and gets a top edge. Chandimal runs across and crosses by the time Karunaratne runs across and takes the catch himself

Dushmantha Chameera c & b Karunaratne 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0

Will Chandimal get the strike back?

19.2

C Karunaratne to Chandimal, 1 run

short of a good length delivery. He looks to pull and gets an under edge to leg side for a single.

19.1
4
C Karunaratne to Chandimal, FOUR runs

short of a good length delivery outside the off stump. He is on the backfoot as he cuts it in front of square for a boundary. The ball just flew off his bat

13 runs required off the final over. Who will bowl it? Jayathilake will be the one bowling it. No, it won't be him. Dasun Shanaka, Dickwella and Jayathilake had a long conversation and they decide that Chamika Karunaratne will bowl the final over. It will be his first over in the game

Pradeep to Chandimal, SIX runs

full toss on the stumps. Chandimal gets behind the line of the delivery and propels it over square-leg for a six. Brilliant stroke. Can he do this for a couple of overs more? Have Colombo Stars started to have a go at the target late?
