Tillakaratne Sampath1013013.0010110
Shiraz Ahmed402325.75122020
1.3 to MD Gunathilaka, And he's done him all ends up here! What a ball! Yorker on leg stump, swinging in. Gunathilaka gives himself room but just can't get bat on ball and the leg peg goes tumbling.. 17/1
17.5 to LD Madushanka, It's the yorker again that does the trick for Shiraz! Madushanka moves across the stumps trying to beat the man at short fine leg, but he can't get anything on the ball, which crashes into leg stump.. 104/7
Nimesh Vimukthi401724.25111000
2.4 to S Samarawickrama, But Vimukthi strikes next ball! Sadeera goes for a big ol' slog sweep but gets nowhere near it. The stumps are well and truly disturbed.. 18/2
12.3 to BKG Mendis, And the pressure has paid off for the Warriors! Kusal has had enough and he gets under this as he looks for the big one down the ground. But while he gets the height, he doesn't get the distance. The man in the deep keeps his eyes on the ball and completes a good catch.. 75/5
Kamindu Mendis402536.2582001
6.2 to BR Dunk, Straight to the fielder at deep midwicket! It's back of a length and sits up nicely, but the slowness of the surface again impacts Dunks timing and he can only hit this straight to Vimukthi in the deep, who takes a good catch running in.. 44/3
8.6 to PBB Rajapaksa, And that's plumb as it gets! Kamindu follows up the flighted one fizzed through. Rajapaksa is too late to get the bat down, and it strikes him dead in front of the stumps. No doubt about that.. 60/4
16.4 to D Lakshan, Oh deary me! That's an absolute long-hop, short as you like there for the taking. But Lakshan can only find the man at deep midwicket. Kamindu has a sheepish grin and so he should.. 95/6

Mohammad Amir301916.3391100
0.6 to TN Sampath, Oof that's an absolute corker first up for Tillakaratne! In-swinging yorker on the toes, Amir is convinced it's trapped him in front and the umpire agrees. After a short consultation with the non-striker they go for a review, but this looks plumb folks...ball tracking shows it crashing into the middle of middle. Review lost.. 5/1
Dhananjaya Lakshan302016.6693010
4.3 to KIC Asalanka, And he's thrown it away! It's on a length outside off, and Asalanka looks to hit this over mid-on. But the lack of pace on surface messes with his timing and mid-on takes a comfortable catch diving forward.. 33/2
Nuwan Thushara3.403118.45124130
5.4 to AK Perera, Oof! And he's only gone and done one better! Same as the previous delivery, but this one pitches a little straighter, and the late swing, which once again beats Angelo's forward defence, clips the top of off stump. Absolute peach from Thushara!. 40/3
Noor Ahmad402807.00100050
Samit Patel402025.00132010
9.4 to PHKD Mendis, Gone! Length ball, Kamindu stays back and looks to pull this. But he only manages a top edge and it's an easy catch at square leg.. 56/4
15.6 to TJ Moores, And he's thrown his wicket away! Charges down the track, and Patel's arm ball skids past the outside edge. The keeper completes an easy stumping.. 106/5
