Nuwan Pradeep403007.50125010
Marchant de Lange4047111.7577101
16.3 to T Kohler-Cadmore, taken by Tahir at deep midwicket! Change of pace, and short of a length on middle and off. He went for the pull, but that didn't bounce as much as he would have liked. Eventually, it came off the upper half of the bat to the man placed on the boundary, who didn't have to move a step to grab at that. 159/2
Imran Tahir402406.0091100
Chamika Karunaratne4053113.2554301
13.2 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, finally Giants gobble one down! Gurbaz again went heaving toward long-on, but seemed to have got that from the higher side of the bat, since the length of this ball was slightly on a back of a length on middle, which was much shorter than the previous ball in which he smacked six. Sends that sailing into the sky, and is nabbed by the fielder. An impactful knock comes to an end. 122/1
Lahiru Samarakoon2030215.0030330
19.2 to WIA Fernando, another full-toss wide of off, and this time taken at cover! He went slashing at that away from his body since the ball was pretty wide of him, but was beaten by the lack of pace. The ball took off from the top edge of his bat, as the cover fielder sat under it to complete an easy catch. An outstanding innings from Avishka, who has helped his side touch 200. 200/3
19.6 to Shoaib Malik, ballooned in the air, and taken by the bowler! Another change of pace ball from Samarakoon, who bowls full and outside off. Malik tries to repeat the shot which got him the six, and lofts that with the full face of the bat. But he ended up skying it, as the bowler moved to his left to nab that. 210/4

Maheesh Theekshana402325.75113000
4.3 to N Dickwella, a skip by the fielder at cover-point, and Dickwella departs! Fullish ball on leg, and bowled slower too with a little loop. Dickwella went reverse-sweeping, but the ball seemed to be to leg-sideish for that shot, as he had to fetch that while trying to roll his wrists. But he ended up getting it off the higher side of the bat, as the ball nearly flew to the fielder placed right on the edge of the circle. 42/2
4.6 to J Liyanage, flashed to point! Went slashing at that good length ball a touch wide of off, but that raced off the top edge of the bat to the man who was placed much closer than usual. And hence the fielder took it above his head while trying to slide forward. Two wickets in the over, and Giants are hit badly in a massive chase. 44/3
Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva403218.00121300
10.1 to Najibullah Zadran, top edge, and snapped at extra cover! Hasaranga tosses it up full and outside leg, as Zadran backs away to try and heave over covers, but gets that off the top edge. The ball goes up high in the night sky for a comfortable catch in the end. Kings just a formality away from a win now. 85/6
Suranga Lakmal2025112.5043121
3.3 to PD Salt, outstanding catch by Hasaranga! He had to sprint in all the way from deep square leg, finishing nearly inside the circle. Salt went pulling to that short of a length ball outside off, but that lacked pace for his liking, as the ball came off the higher side of the bat. Hasaranga ran in and dived low, and the ball almost slipped out as he fell to the ground, but just about remained pouched in the end. 39/1
Shoaib Malik1015015.0020200
Jayden Seales402436.00132070
7.2 to DS Weerakkody, slices this off the bottom half of the bat, and this time TKC takes a much easier catch at mid-on. It was a full delivery on middle, as he made room to try and swing that out of the ground. But the ball flew off his bat, as all TKC had to do this time was take a few steps back and hold it high with a reverse-cup. 75/4
7.6 to RTM Mendis, a celebrappeal from the keeper, and gone! Another shortish ball outside off, and again this one bounces more for the batter's liking. Mendis has a jab at that away from his body, with the movement away from him taking his top edge to the keeper's right, who collects it high and goes up celebrating. What an over this one - ten balls bowled in total, two wickets and four wides. 79/5
18.5 to Imran Tahir, taken by mid-off! Tahir now tries to repeat what Karunaratne did earlier in the over, but fails to clear the fielder. It was a full ball outside off, and he presented the full face of the bat to try and loft, but that shot lacked power, as Malik took it easy to his left. 169/9
Thisara Perera4050212.5076210
11.3 to SMLD Samarakoon, nabbed low at short third man! Malik takes that well. Samarakoon tried to glide that good length ball on off, and seemed to have played late at that. The ball took the higher side of the bat, and went dying to the fielder placed inside the circle. 96/7
15.4 to M de Lange, Good catch by Seales at long-on. Again a change of pace, and de Lange is beaten, as the ball is bowled from back of the hand on a fullish length on middle and off, and de Lange has a go at that by trying to hoick to the leg side. But the ball takes the inside half of the bat and flies to long-on, where Seales goes low to complete the catch and signals immediately that it is a clean catch. 129/8
