Fall of wickets: 1-3 (Pathum Nissanka, 0.3 ov), 2-4 (Andre Fletcher, 0.5 ov), 3-42 (Kamindu Mendis, 7.6 ov), 4-134 (Ashen Bandara, 17.1 ov), 5-134 (Fabian Allen, 17.2 ov), 6-141 (Chamika Karunaratne, 18.2 ov)
0.3 to P Nissanka, huge appeal, and given! Full delivery initially slanted into the batter on leg stump. The ball, though, curves away very late. Nissanka is looking to work to leg and is turned inside out as the ball breezes past the bat and smashes into the back leg, right in front of middle and leg stump. Nissanka does not even bother with the review, and the Falcons are jolted early!. 3/1
0.5 to ADS Fletcher, struck on the pads again, and that looks plumb too! Length delivery slanted into the batter on middle and off stump. Fletcher is caught on the crease and has a hurried stab at it. He gets nowhere close to it and is also beaten for pace as the ball thuds into the pads. The umpire raises his finger, and Fletcher, after a conversation with his partner, decides to walk back!. 4/2
17.1 to KNA Bandara, Rajitha has his third! Dipping slower ball that ends up as a low full toss. Bandara looks to slog it over deep mid wicket but the lack of pace, and the dip means that he can only toe-end it towards deep mid wicket. And the Stars, for a change, cling on to a chance!. 134/4
17.2 to FA Allen, and he is castled first ball! Another slower delivery that dips devilishly on the batter. Allen looks at the full toss and thinks he can whip it away. But the lack of pace means that he swings too early and the ball crashes into the base of middle and leg stump!. 134/5
18.2 to C Karunaratne, sliced and gone this time! Full delivery angled across the batter outside off stump. Karunaratne throws the kitchen sink at it and slices it straight to extra cover. The Falcons continue losing wickets!. 141/6
7.6 to PHKD Mendis, cleans him up! Slanted into the batter at the stumps again, and this time, it gets the better of Mendis. He tries to be funky and looks for the paddle. The ball, though, just hangs in the air enough to force a mistake. Mendis paddles too early and the ball goes past the bat before smashing into the stumps! Massive moment in the game!. 42/3

1.6 to KNM Fernando, that goes to the moon, and nestles in Nissanka's palms! Brathwaite at it again! Length delivery angled into the batter, and this one just holds in the surface. Madushka gets plenty of elevation but no distance at all. Nissanka settles himself under the high ball and completes the catch. 13/1
12.3 to LD Chandimal, cleans him up! Length delivery fired into the batter on leg stump. Chandimal advances and has a swipe at it. He is late on the stroke, though, and misses. The ball then kisses the thigh pad and deflects onto the stumps! Just the breakthrough the Falcons needed at this stage!. 103/2
14.4 to DC Drakes, in the air and taken comfortably! Full delivery outside off stump. Drakes continues swinging like a rusty gate, and this time, slices it straight to short extra cover, who makes no mistake!. 124/4
