Fall of wickets: 1-8 (Danushka Gunathilaka, 0.4 ov), 2-40 (Kusal Mendis, 4.5 ov), 3-41 (Mohammad Hafeez, 5.3 ov), 4-93 (Ben Dunk, 11.2 ov), 5-133 (Bhanuka Rajapaksa, 16.2 ov), 6-163 (Samit Patel, 19.4 ov), 7-164 (Isuru Udana, 19.6 ov)
0.4 to MD Gunathilaka, Miscues a skier! Perera take a sprawling catch while running back and pouches it safely, Gunathilaka mistimed it completely.. 8/1
5.3 to Mohammad Hafeez, Hafeez couldn't make use of the reprieve as he dances down the track and holes out to long on. Fernando takes a regulation catch and wickets are tumbling for Gladiators. Theekshana has got the prized scalp! Hafeez could have been very dangerous but it's another timely wicket shed by Kings. 41/3
4.5 to BKG Mendis, Gobbled by Gurbaz! Tight lines, angled into the body, he loads up to swat it over square leg but is not in control and gets the splice of the bat and keeper latches onto it quickly, Mendis departs early in the piece. 40/2
19.4 to SR Patel, Miscues the pull on this occasion and is caught by Hasaranga at midwicket who charges in from deep and takes a brilliant catch. 163/6
19.6 to I Udana, He got the height but not the distance and gifts a simple catch for de Silva at deep midwicket. Udana gets out without troubling the scorers. Got no timing on this occasion but Gladiators have got a fighting total.. 164/7
11.2 to BR Dunk, Dunk loses the plot! One big shot too many, Thisara gobbles it down his throat at long-on, the leggie gets the prized scalp. 93/4
16.2 to PBB Rajapaksa, Swallowed by Gurbaz as Hasaranga bowls a delicious googly on a fuller length, he tried to smack it over midwicket, didn't get all of it and top-edges it to the keeper. 133/5

TOTAL18.4 Ov (RR: 5.89)110
Fall of wickets: 1-28 (Upul Tharanga, 3.4 ov), 2-39 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 5.4 ov), 3-41 (Avishka Fernando, 6.3 ov), 4-52 (Tom Kohler-Cadmore, 8.3 ov), 5-70 (Thisara Perera, 11.6 ov), 6-71 (Wanindu Hasaranga, 12.4 ov), 7-75 (Sammu Ashan, 13.1 ov), 8-108 (Wahab Riaz, 17.4 ov), 9-108 (Suranga Lakmal, 17.5 ov), 10-110 (Maheesh Theekshana, 18.4 ov)
18.4 to M Theekshana, That's it! Caught at mid-on by Rajapaksa as Theekshana tried to loft it over mid-on but didn't get all of it. It's a resounding victory by Gladiators who have outgunned Kings in a one-sided match. 110/10
3.4 to WU Tharanga, Castled! That's a massive strike. The zingers have been lit-up as Hafeez hoys this one from round the wicket angle, fires it on the middle stump, Tharanga backs away to slap a cut shot, the ball just rose enough to beat his bat and Professor gets his man. 28/1
5.4 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Kusal Mendis pouches it safely at deep square as Gurbaz miscues a skier! Hafeez gets his second wicket, it was in his arc and he got the height but not the distance. 39/2
6.3 to WIA Fernando, Another one bites the dust! Hoys it on a full length, it kicks and turns away sharply off the deck outside off, he was trapped on the crease, not moving his feet forward or back, wafts and edges it to the first slip. 41/3
8.3 to T Kohler-Cadmore, Kohler-Cadmore departs on 10 as Noor Ahmad clings onto the skier safely at deep cover. It was spinning away from him and he didn't read it at all, kind of a brain-freeze moment from Cadmore as Jaffna Kings find themselves in a spot of bother. 52/4
13.1 to S Ashan, Round the wicket, tossed up on a fuller length, spins away outside off, he was outside his crease in a bid to slap a cut, big gap between bat and ball, Dunk removes the bails in a flash as Kings stare into the abyss. 75/7
12.4 to PW Hasaranga, Kings find themselves in a bottomless pit as Noor flummoxes him with a jaffa! Hasarange is nowhere near the line of the ball as it crashes the stumps.. 71/6
11.6 to NLTC Perera, Edged and taken! That's a brute of a delivery, pitched on a fraction shorter length, kicking and screaming off the deck and the keeper does the rest. Madushanka gets the big fish!. 70/5
17.4 to Wahab Riaz, That's a perfect riposte! Bagged by Noor Ahmad! Wahab's cameo comes to an end. He tried to hit across the line and he had to go after every delivery given the match situation but he ends up getting gobbled easily by Noor at midwicket. 108/8
17.5 to RAS Lakmal, Two in two! Disturbs the furniture with this snorter, it was aimed at the stumps, too good for Lakmal who looked out of sorts, was leaning back but failed to read the line, missed it completely. 108/9
