TOTAL19.5 Ov (RR: 6.90)137
Fall of wickets: 1-9 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 2.3 ov), 2-11 (Avishka Fernando, 3.2 ov), 3-38 (Tom Kohler-Cadmore, 6.2 ov), 4-48 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 7.3 ov), 5-79 (Thisara Perera, 12.1 ov), 6-118 (Shoaib Malik, 16.3 ov), 7-120 (James Fuller, 16.6 ov), 8-130 (Dunith Wellalage, 17.6 ov), 9-131 (Maheesh Theekshana, 18.4 ov), 10-137 (Vijayakanth Viyaskanth, 19.5 ov)
2.3 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Gurbaz bits the dust! Length delivery angled across the batter just outside off stump and this one seems to hold in the surface ever so slightly. Gurbaz has a heave at it and toe-ends it terribly. The ball goes miles up in the air. Imad Wasim calls early and completes the catch at mid wicket. The third umpire is having a look at the bowler's front foot but Riaz is comfortable on that count. Just what the Gladiators wanted; just what the Kings did not need!. 9/1
17.6 to DN Wellalage, Wellalage departs! Back of a length delivery outside off stump that zips through and bounces a tad extra. Wellalage has a loose waft at it and gets a feather through to the keeper, who makes no mistake! Massive wicket, considering Wellalage could have caused a lot of damage!. 130/8
3.2 to WIA Fernando, huge appeal, and given! Full delivery darted into the batter on middle and off stump. Avishka gets down on one knee early and has a massive swipe across the line. He is in no position to play the stroke, though, and the ball, because it is relatively full, sneaks past the bat. The ball thuds into the back pad, and the umpire has no hesitation in raising his finger. But Avishka has reviewed this one, for some reason, and we wait for confirmation on whether he is out or not. Nothing on Ultra Edge and Ball Tracking shows that the ball would have clipped the top of middle and leg stump. Umpire's Call, meaning that the Kings do not lose the review, But they do lose Avishka - one of their batting lynchpins!. 11/2
12.1 to NLTC Perera, and he gets Perera straightaway! Back of a length delivery on middle and leg stump that seems to rush onto the batter. Perera has a huge slog at it anyway and slices it towards short third man, where the fielder takes a fairly regulation catch. 79/5
6.2 to T Kohler-Cadmore, Thushara gets Kohler-Cadmore! Back of a length delivery outside off stump and that one seems to stand up a little. The ball might have also nipped away a shade, meaning that Kohler-Cadmore, who is trying to smash it over mid wicket, ends up splicing it towards long on, where the fielder settles himself and completes the catch!. 38/3
19.5 to V Viyaskanth, chops it on! Slower delivery dug into the track outside off stump. Viyaskanth has a wild swipe across the line and loses shape completely. The ball pings off the inside edge of the bat and thuds into the stumps. 137/10
7.3 to DM de Silva, edged and taken! Back of a length delivery outside off stump, and de Silva looks to play that one harmlessly down to third man. The problem, though, is that there is a bit of extra zip and the ball kisses the outside edge on its way through to the keeper. 48/4
18.4 to M Theekshana, The Kings are falling like a pack of cards! Banged into the track at the batter on leg stump and this one tucks Theekshana up again. He has a swish at it and clogs it towards mid on, where the fielder holds onto an easy catch!. 131/9
16.3 to Shoaib Malik, Iftikhar gets Malik! Length delivery slanted across the batter on middle and off stump. Malik has a massive swipe across the line but he is not close enough to the pitch of the ball. The angle means that he slices it miles up into the air. Iftikhar calls early and completes the catch comfortably!. 118/6
16.6 to JK Fuller, two in the over for Iftikhar! Back of a length delivery slanted across the batter outside off stump. Fuller looks to hit it over long off but does not account for the angle. He is late on the stroke too, and splices it tamely towards long off, where Nuwanidu does the rest. 120/7

TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 5.65)113
Fall of wickets: 1-58 (Nuwanidu Fernando, 7.3 ov), 2-63 (Azam Khan, 8.3 ov), 3-69 (Movin Subasingha, 10.2 ov), 4-79 (Iftikhar Ahmed, 12.1 ov), 5-97 (Kusal Mendis, 15.6 ov), 6-100 (Sammu Ashan, 16.6 ov), 7-108 (Imad Wasim, 17.4 ov), 8-112 (Wahab Riaz, 18.1 ov), 9-113 (Nuwan Pradeep, 19.5 ov), 10-113 (Nuwan Thushara, 19.6 ov)
15.6 to BKG Mendis, huge appeal, and given! Is that the game? Full delivery that starts on off stump and zones in on the batter's pads. Mendis plants his front foot and plays across the line, only to see the ball breeze past the bat and smash into the pads, right in front of the stumps. Theekshana appeals and the umpire raises his finger without any hesitation. Mendis reviews, but I feel he could be in trouble here! Nothing on Ultra Edge and Ball Tracking returns with Umpire's Call on the 'Wickets' parameter!. 97/5
17.4 to Imad Wasim, is there a nick? Yes, there is! This could be the game! Banged into the track and this one is angled into the batter. Imad tries to give himself room but is always cramped for it. He tries to slash it away but the awkward position he gets himself into means that he can only nick it through to the keeper. 108/7
19.5 to N Pradeep, straight to the fielder at long on! Back of a length delivery on leg stump. Pradeep backs away and finally gets some decent contact. Such is his luck, though, that he arrows it straight down long on's throat. Been that kind of a day with the bat for the Gladiators!. 113/9
19.6 to N Thushara, another wicket to polish off what has turned out to be a convincing win in the end! Length delivery on leg stump that hurtles through. Thushara has a nibble at it, more in hope than anything else, and feathers it through to the keeper. An apt way to cap off an outstanding bowling display! This is also the lowest total that has been defended at this venue in the history of the LPL!. 113/10
16.6 to S Ashan, edged and taken! Another batter bites the dust! Full delivery outside off stump and this one seems to move away very late. Ashan has a loose drive at it without any conviction and feathers it through to the keeper, who gobbles up the chance!. 100/6
8.3 to Azam Khan, taken at short mid wicket! Full delivery angled into the batter on middle and leg stump. Azam gets forward but is not quite to the pitch of the ball. He flicks it away but does so aerially, meaning that Wellalage can fly to his left and complete a smart grab!. 63/2
12.1 to Iftikhar Ahmed, Iftikhar perishes! Tossed up on a length outside off stump again, and Iftikhar's eyes light up. He gives it the lot but because he is deceived in the air, the ball skews off the outside edge towards backward point, where Perera does the rest. 79/4
7.3 to MNK Fernando, edged and taken this time! Slightly quicker and flatter on a length outside off stump. Nuwanidu throws his hands at it but is slightly beaten for pace. The extra bounce means that the ball kisses the top edge and then nestles into the keeper's gloves. Vital wicket for the Kings!. 58/1
