Thisara Perera301424.66140110
0.4 to LD Chandimal, knocks him over with an absolute jaffa! Length delivery that pitches in the channel and jags back sharply. Chandimal goes feeling for it and leaves a massive gap between bat and pad. The ball breezes through the gap and then flattens off stump! What a start for the Kings!. 0/1
2.4 to KIC Asalanka, gone this time, Afif the man again! Full delivery angled across the batter just outside off stump. Asalanka looks to slog it away over deep mid wicket but mistimes his stroke. The ball goes miles up into the air, and Afif, stationed at deep square leg, makes up plenty of ground to his left before completing a superb diving catch!. 13/3
Shoaib Malik20422.0080000
1.2 to N Dickwella, cleans up Dickwella! Back of a length delivery darted into the batter on middle and off stump. Dickwella opts to stay back and then has a hurried stab at it. He is beaten for pace, though, as the ball goes past the bat and smashes into the stumps! Another duck for Dickwella, and the Stars are in all sorts of trouble now!. 5/2
3.4 to D Lakshan, soft dismissal! Given a bit of air on a full length outside off stump. Lakshan's eyes light up and he comes down the track, looking to go over extra cover. All he does, though, is hit it straight to short extra cover, who makes absolutely no mistake!. 16/4
Zaman Khan402215.5081000
16.3 to KNM Fernando, in the air and taken comfortably! Full delivery on middle and leg stump that seems to stick in the surface just a shade. Madushka looks to go downtown but is too early into the stroke. The ball pings off the lower half of the bat and swirls towards mid off, where Perera does the rest!. 90/7
Asitha Fernando403117.7552020
19.3 to JDF Vandersay, straight to short third man! Sharp bumper on leg stump, and it causes Vandersay all sorts of problems. He looks to swipe it over mid wicket but the extra pace means that he splices it straight to short third man!. 123/9
Praveen Jayawickrama302317.6671100
9.6 to RS Bopara, huge appeal, not given! Full delivery slanted into the batter on middle and leg stump. Bopara comes forward and then plays all over it as the ball beats the bat and strikes him on the front pad. The umpire says no, but we go upstairs! No bat involved, and Ball Tracking returns with three reds! Bopara has to go!. 53/5
Suminda Lakshan402917.25112200
17.4 to DC Drakes, goen this time! Continues giving it air, and this time, he gets rewarded. Another googly that dips on the batter just enough outside off stump. Drakes looks to drag it over cow corner but ends up shanking it off the bottom of the bat towards long on. A handy knock by Drakes, though!. 112/8

13.2 to Shoaib Malik, straight to deep backward square leg! Full delivery down the leg side. Malik could have hit that literally anywhere but he picks out the fielder at deep backward square leg to absolute perfection! A wry smile surfaces on Malik's face but he has to walk back!. 112/2
Mohammad Nabi20804.0071000
Jeffrey Vandersay403318.25104100
11.5 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, huge appeal, and given! Reviewed straightaway! Tossed up on a length on middle and off stump, and it seems Gurbaz has not picked the googly. He plays down the wrong line and is rapped on the front pad, right in front of the stumps. The umpire thinks about it and then raises his finger! No bat involved, and three reds on Ball Tracking. Gurbaz is on his way!. 105/1
