Lahiru Kumara403649.00153330
0.5 to AD Mathews, gone this time! Full delivery on middle and off stump that shapes away very late and seems to stick in the surface too. Matthews is caught on the crease and has a waft at it. The ball pings off the leading edge and lobs towards mid off, where Raza does the rest!. 9/1
0.6 to ND Paranavithana, two in two for Kumara! Full and angled into the batter on leg stump. Paranavithana, much like his captain, is caught on the crease. He has a hurried stab at it but by then, the ball has breezed past his bat and smashed into his back pad. The umpire gives it out and the batter decides to not review. Surely that was worth a punt? Might have pitched outside leg. 9/2
2.6 to KIC Asalanka, Kumara has three! This is pretty ordinary cricket from the Stars! Length delivery just outside off stump that does not come onto the batter as quickly as he is expecting. He tries to force it over the off side ring but is in no shape whatsoever. In the end, he clinks it tamely towards mid off. Colombo Stars in a spot of bother now!. 26/3
18.4 to DC Drakes, short and sharp outside off stump. Drakes has a swish at it but is late on the stroke as the ball whistles past the bat. But hang on, it seems that Shanaka has reviewed this one! The ball is close to the bat and Ultra Edge shows there is a small spike as the ball passes the under edge of the bat. Wonderful review by Shanaka, as it turns out, and Colombo are seven down now!. 148/7
Sikandar Raza403117.75112210
15.4 to Karim Janat, cleans him up with a ripper! Back of a length delivery that pitches on middle and off stump, and nips away sharply. Janat has no clue this ball is going to nip away and looks to play to leg, only to see the ball breeze past the bat and smash into the stumps. 117/6
Tharindu Ratnayake302016.6661100
14.3 to N Dickwella, soft dismissal! Flighted nicely on a length on middle and leg stump, and it seems Ratnayake has deceived Dickwella in the air completely. He advances but is nowhere close to the pitch of the ball. In the end, he reaches out and chips it straight to long on. Massive moment in the game!. 114/5
Lahiru Madushanka201718.5043000
19.4 to RAS Lakmal, straight to the fielder! Another off-pace delivery on a length on leg stump. Lakmal has a mighty slog at it and gets decent enough contact too. However, he is hitting into the wind, meaning that deep backward square leg can come around and pouch it!. 160/8

4.5 to JM Cox, gone this time, excellent take! Full delivery just outside off stump. Cox plants his front foot and looks to go downtown. He might not have picked the change of pace, though, and is early into his stroke. The ball pops up off the toe end towards mid on, where Drakes backpedals, settles himself and completes a superb overhead grab! Huge wicket in the context of the game!. 53/1
13.4 to TB Abell, the short ball does the trick! Dug into the track at the batter again, and this one climbs up onto the batter a lot more than he is expecting. He has another swing at it but because he can't control the stroke, the ball lobs up off the top edge towards fine leg, where the fielder makes no mistake!. 111/4
Dominic Drakes403528.7596000
7.6 to S Daniel, holes out to deep mid wicket! Banged into the track just outside off stump. Daniel looks for the pull and gets decent contact too. The only problem, though, is that he hits it straight to deep mid wicket, where Janat accepts the offering gleefully!. 65/2
16.4 to PC de Silva, cleans him up! Slower delivery on a full length on leg stump. Chaturanga backs away and looks to carve it over extra cover. However, he has not picked the variation and he swings way too early. The ball squirms past the bat and thuds into leg stump. Dambulla are losing their way again!. 130/7
15.4 to LD Madushanka, Madushanka bites the dust! Sharp, rising delivery outside off stump. Madushanka, without really getting on top of the bounce, has a swipe at it. The ball skews off the top edge, and Dickwella calls early before completing the catch smartly. 125/6

10.2 to PBB Rajapaksa, caught in the deep! Banged into the track and that seems to be a riposte to Rajapaksa advancing. The ball also cramps the batter for room, meaning that Rajapaksa can't generate enough power. The ball pings off the higher part of the bat towards deep square leg, where the fielder does the rest. Stars keep chipping away!. 81/3
14.5 to Sikandar Raza, Janat gets Raza! Huge moment! Length delivery outside off stump and Raza's eyes light up looking at the width. He throws his hands at it but does so without any foot movement, meaning that the ball takes a feather through to the keeper, who gobbles up the chance!. 120/5
