Kasun Rajitha403218.0071100
11.3 to LU Igalagamage, oh, what a catch! My word! Back of a length delivery on leg stump that holds in the surface a little. Udara has a swish across the line and gets a top edge that goes miles up into the air. Dickwella calls early, circles underneath it and then brings out the dive to complete a superb catch running backwards!. 100/2
19.1 to Asad Shafiq, gone this time! Back of a length delivery outside off stump. Shafiq looks to muscle it over long on but the ball just gets a little too big on him. It ultimately pings off the splice towards long on, where Howell does the rest!. 188/3
19.5 to BKG Mendis, cleans him up! Searing yorker on middle and off stump. Mendis shimmies around his crease and looks to access the leg side. This time, though, he is just a little late on the stroke as the ball goes past the bat and thuds into off stump!. 193/4

Benny Howell3033011.0054101
Seekkuge Prasanna302217.3350100
6.5 to PTM Dabare, gone this time, what a grab that is! Dropped short outside off stump, and Dabare's eyes light up. He winds up and has a massive swipe at it. Unfortunately for him, the ball keeps a little low and clinks off the toe-end. Asalanka runs in from long on, and then dives forward to take a sensational catch!. 51/1

Imad Wasim402005.00100100
Nuwan Thushara402937.25122210
1.2 to N Dickwella, middle stump out of the ground! Length delivery on middle and off stump that curves into the batter very late. Dickwella has a swish across the line without any foot movement and is in no shape to play that stroke. The ball breezes past the bat and then flattens middle stump! Just the kind of start the Gladiators were after!. 3/1
15.5 to BAC Howell, outfoxes Howell, and gives Galle the wicket they wanted! Slower delivery on a length at the stumps and this one dips very late. Howell is through his shot way too early and clinks it off the toe-end towards long on, where the fielder makes no mistake!. 144/5
17.2 to AD Mathews, holes out to long on, massive moment in the game! Full delivery outside off stump. Mathews sits back in his crease and tries to smack it over long on. The length, though, is too full to get the requisite elevation. In the end, he arrows it straight to Anwar at long on, who gobbles up the chance!. 154/6
Wahab Riaz4061115.2549230
10.6 to LD Chandimal, and that is just the mockers that I needed to put on them, it seems! Banged into the track, and Chandimal looks to ramp it over third man. This time, though, he is cramped for room a touch and ends up arrowing is straight down third man's throat. 95/2
Anwar Ali4044311.0064210
13.5 to KIC Asalanka, gone this time! Asalanka departs! Length delivery outside off stump and Asalanka's eyes light up looking at the width. For the first time in a while, though, he loses his shape a little and it seems he might not have picked the slower one either. He slices it towards deep cover point, where the fielder holds his nerve and the catch!. 121/3
19.2 to S Prasanna, and Prasanna departs now! More drama at Pallekele! Dug into the track outside off stump. Prasanna looks to end it with one blow but this one gets a little too big on him. He also has to fetch it, meaning that he splices it towards deep mid wicket, where the fielder holds onto a pressure catch. 192/7
19.4 to M Lakshan, another bites the dust! The Gladiators are not going anywhere! Short delivery outside off stump again. Lakshan has another swipe at it and this time, slices it straight to deep backward square leg. But hang on, looks like the umpires want to check if this one is above the shoulder. Looks alright to me, and the umpire agrees! Lakshan has to walk back. 192/8
