Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-31 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 3.5 ov), 2-48 (Avishka Fernando, 5.5 ov), 3-114 (Sadeera Samarawickrama, 13.5 ov), 4-114 (Shoaib Malik, 13.6 ov), 5-159 (Thisara Perera, 17.6 ov), 6-161 (Afif Hossain, 18.2 ov), 7-167 (Dunith Wellalage, 19.1 ov), 8-169 (James Fuller, 19.5 ov)
3.5 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, gone this time! Third full toss in the over and Gurbaz could have hit this anywhere. Instead, he swings it straight down short fine leg's throat, who makes no mistake. There have been so many full tosses this over that you begin to wonder if this was a plan all along. Nevertheless, a massive wicket for the Gladiators!. 31/1
18.2 to Afif Hossain, holes out to deep mid wicket! In the slot on middle and leg stump. Afif plants his front foot and flicks it delightfully. But he does not quite get enough elevation, nor does he pick the gap. It arrows straight to deep mid wicket, where Iftikhar does the rest. Thushara holding his own at the death again!. 161/6
13.5 to S Samarawickrama, holes out to deep backward square leg! Length delivery angled across the batter just outside off stump. Samarawickrama shuffles across and looks for an extravagant whip over deep backward square leg. The angle, though, means that he can only mistime it straight to deep backward square leg!. 114/3
13.6 to Shoaib Malik, oh dear, what has happened here?! Banged into the track at the batter on leg stump. Malik is awfully late on the stroke and has a swish at it. The ball flicks the top edge and thumps into his helmet. The protection at the back of the helmet then comes off and dislodges the bails! Freak dismissal, let's hope Malik is alright!. 114/4
17.6 to NLTC Perera, straight to deep mid wicket! Dug into the track and angled into the batter as well. Perera has a swipe at it but does not quite have the room to generate the requisite power. He gets a decent piece of it but not enough to clear the fielder at deep mid wicket!. 159/5
5.5 to WIA Fernando, up in the air, and Avishka departs! Back of a length delivery on middle and leg stump that sticks in the surface. The ball bounces a touch extra too, meaning that Avishka, who has a swipe across the line, can only skew it off the top edge towards mid wicket, where Iftikhar does the rest!. 48/2

Fall of wickets: 1-10 (Thanuka Dabare, 1.4 ov), 2-10 (Lahiru Udara, 1.5 ov), 3-29 (Asad Shafiq, 4.5 ov), 4-65 (Nuwanidu Fernando, 8.3 ov), 5-110 (Iftikhar Ahmed, 13.3 ov), 6-126 (Imad Wasim, 15.5 ov), 7-142 (Wahab Riaz, 18.4 ov), 8-151 (Kusal Mendis, 18.6 ov), 9-151 (Nuwan Pradeep, 19.2 ov)
1.4 to PTM Dabare, soft dismissal! Back of a length delivery outside off stump that holds in the surface. Dabare has a half-hearted swipe at it and toe-ends it terribly towards mid on, where Perera completes a very simple catch! Just the start the Gladiators did not need!. 10/1
1.5 to LU Igalagamage, gone first ball! Back of a length delivery pushed across the batter outside off. Udara goes feeling for it without any foot movement and feathers it through to the keeper. Binura has two, and the Gladiators are in all sorts of trouble now!. 10/2
19.2 to N Pradeep, cleans him up with a corker! Fast, full and honing in on off stump. Pradeep has a swing at it because, well why not, and is too late on the stroke. The ball breezes past the bat and thunders into the stumps!. 151/9
4.5 to Asad Shafiq, Theekshana gets Shafiq! Given a bit of air on a length just outside off stump. Shafiq plays for the ball coming into him but this one grips and goes away. Shafiq closes the bat face early and the ball lobs towards short third man, where Viyaskanth gobbles up the chance smartly!. 29/3
15.5 to Imad Wasim, and the commentator's curse strikes! Imad has to depart! Short and angled across the batter outside off stump. Imad looks to slash it over the keeper but is slightly late on the stroke, meaning that he can only feather it through to the keeper. Massive wicket in the context of the game! Imad is absolutely livid with himself!. 126/6
18.6 to BKG Mendis, straight to deep mid wicket! Dug into the track outside off stump. Mendis looks to smear it over deep mid wicket but does not quite get the required elevation. He arrows it straight down deep mid wicket's throat, and Malik makes no mistake! Is that the game?. 151/8
8.3 to MNK Fernando, has he whipped the bails off in time? Tossed up on a full length just outside off stump. Nuwanidu advances and has a swing at it but sees the ball rip past the outside edge. Samarawickrama fumbles initially but then takes off the bails. The question, though, is whether he has done so quickly enough? Looks like he has! Nuwanidu has to walk back!. 65/4
13.3 to Iftikhar Ahmed, Iftikhar bites the dust, just about! Another length delivery outside off stump and that was like showing the red rag to a bull. On this occasion, though, Viyaskanth has deceived Iftikhar in the air just enough to force a miscue. The ball swirls towards the bowler, who calls early and takes the catch, despite a nervous wobble at the end. Brave, brave bowling by Viyaskanth!. 110/5
