0.4 to KNM Fernando, And he's gone! Animated appeal for caught behind! Given not out, but the Jaffna players went up in unison. They review, and ultra edge shows the nick. This was a bit of a jaffa from Perera, who pitched it on a length but managed to get some extra bounce and seam movement away from the batter. Madushka wafted at the this and grazed it through. 2/1
19.4 to Mohammad Nabi, Edged and Sadeera grabs a tough chance! This was a another slow off cutter, Nabi swings and gets a thick edge, which Sadeera behind the stumps dives full length to his right and grabs. 159/5
16.3 to AD Mathews, But Theekshana hits back! Huge moment in the game! Theekshana tosses this up once more, not cowed by the earlier stroke, but crucially takes pace off the ball a touch. Mathews comes down the track and looks to hoick this over on the onside, but the ball spins past the inside edge and crashes into middle and leg!. 114/4
9.3 to KIC Asalanka, Wellalage strikes against the run of play! Sees Asalanka charging and Wellalage drags this down a touch and pushes it through quicker. Asalanka goes for heave over mid-on but ends up top-edging it straight to Viyaskanth at short third man.. 77/2

Fall of wickets: 1-49 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 4.1 ov), 2-56 (Afif Hossain, 6.5 ov), 3-128 (Sadeera Samarawickrama, 14.6 ov), 4-146 (Shoaib Malik, 16.5 ov), 5-149 (Dunith Wellalage, 17.4 ov), 6-153 (Avishka Fernando, 18.4 ov), 7-154 (Maheesh Theekshana, 18.5 ov), 8-162 (Thisara Perera, 19.2 ov)
19.2 to NLTC Perera, What a catch from Drakes! This went miles straight up in the air off Thisara's bat, as he looked to heave this over cow corner. Drakes comes under it around midwicket, and holds on to a phenomenal catch under immense pressure.. 162/8
17.4 to DN Wellalage, Chips it back to Nabi! This was tossed up outside off, 90kph, holds up in the surface and Wellalage is early on the drive, offering and easy waist high return catch to Nabi. 149/5
4.1 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, And he strikes straight away! And it's the crucial wicket of Gurbaz. Good length wide outside off, pace-off, 101kph, and Gurbaz looks to carve this over the infield. But the ball holds up in the surface and all he can do is slice is down the ground, where Rajitha runs back from mid-off and completes a straight forward catch. 49/1
6.5 to Afif Hossain, Plucked out of the air! Moment of magic from Mathews. This was the off cutter from Howell and it sticks in the surface. Afif is forced to check this drive and it seems to be just evading Mathews and short extra cover. But the Stars skipper leaps up, sticks a hand out and grabs it!. 56/2
14.6 to S Samarawickrama, Lakmal gets the breakthrough! And it's Sadeera. Good length on off, 128kph, Sadeera looks to drive this inside out but slices it straight to Mathews at extra cover. Is it a little too late though?. 128/3
16.5 to Shoaib Malik, Castled! Malik goes for a pull, but this is too full and it crashes into off stump!. 146/4
18.4 to WIA Fernando, Avishka holes out! My, my, my, do we have a twist in the tail?! This was a gimme on the pads, but crucially pace-off from Lakmal. Avishka wants to pick this up over deep square leg, but can only get enough on it to find the man.. 153/6
