Mohammad Amir402315.75123010
15.6 to AD Mathews, Yorker dipping in, right on money and in the blockhole, he shuffled across, failed to get bat on it and it's the plumbest of lbws, batter takes the review and there is no bat involved, pitching in line, impact in line and it's crashing on the middle stump but take a bow, it has been a well-crafted innings from the seasoned campaigner. 126/5
Samit Patel402325.7591100
1.2 to P Nissanka, Miscues the sweep shot and fielder at square leg pouches it safely, Nissanka goes back in the hut and Samit makes an impact right away in the game, it was a half-hearted sweep and the ball rose sharply off the deck, not an under-controlled shot. 5/1
12.4 to T Banton, Bagged by Gunathilaka as Banton tries to play an inside out drive over mid-off, didn't get all of it, picks out the fielder with surgical precision. There was no power and timing behind the shot as Samit gets another prized scalp. 99/3
Nuwan Thushara10707.0041010
Isuru Udana4049112.2578120
8.5 to SMA Priyanjan, Let me catch my breath! This is uneal, Udana takes a spellbinding catch in his follow-through! Priyanjan hits it hard through the line and Udana plucks it out of thin air! This has got to be one of the best catches of the tournament. 69/2
Noor Ahmad3033111.0052130
14.4 to S Prasanna, Springs down the track and miscues a skier as Mendis takes a wonderful catch at long-on, locked his eyes on the ball as it thudded the bat, watched it in the air, towards him and then into his hand.. 116/4
Dhananjaya Lakshan2022211.0051200
17.3 to LD Chandimal, Udana takes a sprawling catch at deep extra cover as Lakshan dugs in short, keeps it way outside off stump, Chandimal tried to get on top of it, didn't control the rising delivery. 156/6
17.4 to RS Fernando, Back to back wicket as he holes out to long-on on a full bunger, this is turning out to be a great final over as Fernando goes back in the dressing room without troubling the scorers. 156/7

Dhananjaya de Silva1010010.0022000
Ravi Rampaul403629.0073100
12.2 to SR Patel, Chopped on! Cleans him up with a slower delivery. Back of a length and angled into off stump, he got a bit late on cutting that away and got flummoxed by the cunning change of pace. 100/4
15.5 to D Lakshan, This time he connects well but Naveen does a superb job in the field, plucks it out of thin air at deep midwicket region. He caught, kept his balance then flicked the ball back in the air as he stepped over the rope before reestablishing himself back inside the rope to complete the catch. 119/8
Ashan Priyanjan201015.0040000
10.1 to PBB Rajapaksa, Filthy half-tracker gets a wicket! Tossed up from round the wicket and it took an eternity to land, spun away after pitching outside off and he was nowhere near the pitch of the ball, keeper removed the zingers in a jiffy, easy decision for the third umpire.. 82/3
Seekkuge Prasanna402325.7561000
3.1 to MD Gunathilaka, Gets the big fish on the first ball of his spell! Tossed up on a full length, slider spun away and he edges it to the keeper while trying to swat it away through the off side, Stars are slowly pulling things back in their favour. 30/1
9.5 to Mohammad Hafeez, Dragged short on leg stump, it was there to hit and he tried to seize on the shorter legbreak but didn't get underneath and the fielder at deep midwicket clings on to a regulation catch.. 81/2
13.5 to BKG Mendis, Hits the deck hard, angled into the body as he fails to scoop it over fine leg and Priyanjan at backward square leg charged in from the boundary to take a superb running catch. He tracked the ball from the bat, through the air, towards him and then into his hand. Brilliant catch as Gladiators chase gets derailed. 110/5
16.1 to Noor Ahmad, Naveen takes his 100th wicket in T20 cricket. He fires it into the stumps, Ahmad makes room and thwacks an upper cut and finds the fielder at deep cover point. 119/9
16.5 to Mohammad Amir, Cranking up the pace here, full and straight, he swings his bat, beaten by the pace and the ball crashed onto the stumps. It's all over for Gladiators. Colombo Stars register a resounding win!. 121/10
Dushmantha Chameera201517.5030110
14.3 to Mohamed Shamaz, Hurls down a scorching delivery on a shorter length, angled into body, he goes for the big shot and it is not timed well, Prasanna gobbles it while running in from long-on as Gladiators abysmal batting continues. 114/7
