BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Ashan Priyanjan412115.25133000
14.2 to TJ Moores, And Moores is gone! This has a bit of extra bounce from about a length, and it's spinning away. Moores goes for the cut but it's unconvincing, and he can only pop this up off the top edge to short extra cover.. 110/6
Seekkuge Prasanna403117.75121300
13.5 to RS Bopara, Trapped in front! It's the skidder from Seekkuge and Bopara can't get any bat on this as it crashes into his pads. It looks like it's pitching on middle and leg, and it's umpires call on the wickets. Review retained though.. 109/5
Ravi Rampaul403418.5050230
17.2 to PHKD Mendis, And he finds the man at deep extra cover! It's a length ball on the stumps. He comes down the track and gets a decent connection on this, opening the blade, but he only finds the man in the deep.. 120/8
Naveen-ul-Haq301715.66101100
8.1 to KIC Asalanka, Fantastic take at point! This is angled across the left handed Asalanka. It's on a length, maybe fuller and Asalanka drives hard at this. It seems destined for the boundary, but Ashan Priyanjan does exceedingly well to get two hands on this overhead, and hold on.. 77/1
Dushmantha Chameera403548.7594120
9.6 to Ahmed Shehzad, And this one he connects but straight to extra cover! It's pace-off from Chameera, following that fireball the previous delivery, and Shehzad takes the bait. He goes hard at this but only finds the man at extra cover.. 82/2
11.3 to AK Perera, Caught at short midwicket! Short and quick, and Chameera rushes Angelo here who goes for the pull but only gets the toe end on it. A limping Angelo Mathews takes the catch to dismiss his fellow skipper.. 97/3
11.6 to K Lewis, But Chameera gets his man in the end! Another slower delivery, and Lewis goes to cut this one that's back of a length, but he gets a thick edge that dies of Chandimal behind the stumps who has to dive forward to complete the take.. 103/4
19.2 to N Vimukthi, And the stumps are disturbed! Much more pace on this and it rushes Vimukthi, who goes for an evasive pull and only manages to inside edge this on to the stumps.. 136/9
Dhananjaya de Silva10414.0030000
16.6 to S Colombage, And it's another one! This was premeditated by the batter who tries a little shuffle across the crease before moving way into the offside to target midwicket. However he gets a leading edge that gives an easy, floating return catch to Dhananjaya.. 120/7

Nimesh Vimukthi411122.75171000
0.3 to P Nissanka, And what's he done here?! Down the track and stumped! It's on a length and there's spin and bounce away from Nissanka, who comes down the track but can't get to the pitch. He ends up missing his drive and the stumping is completed with ease.. 0/1
11.3 to SMA Priyanjan, Straight to the man at backward point! Priyanjan goes again for the reverse, gets a good connection but he doesn't get the height and so can't clear the infield. Backward point takes a good catch peddling back.. 59/3
Binura Fernando413408.50113200
Kamindu Mendis402917.2591110
4.5 to ST de Silva, Brilliant catch by Angelo Perera! Thikshila is leans back hits this high over mid-off, and Angelo running back, calls for it early, and completes a difficult take running back with the ball falling over his shoulder.. 23/2
Angelo Perera10808.0030100
Sachindu Colombage403418.5074100
17.5 to LD Chandimal, And that might be that! It's short and Chandimal looks to get this over the man at deep midwicket, but his bottom hand comes off the bat as he strikes it and he doesn't get the power. This one isn't dropped.. 110/5
Charith Asalanka201417.0050100
12.1 to AD Mathews, And his impact is immediate! This one bounces up off a length on to Mathews, who tries to work this away to midwicket but ends up popping it up in the air. Asalanka moves briskly to his right and takes a good return catch.. 61/4
