Isuru Udana401924.75142010
2.5 to LU Igalagamage, cleans him up with a peach! Length delivery on middle and off stump that nips away sharply. Udara plays for the original line, and is caught on the crease too. He has a stab at it but can't prevent the ball from breezing past his bat and smashing into the top of off stump!. 9/2
17.6 to MNK Fernando, that looks close, and it is given! But hang on, Nuwanidu has reviewed this! Slower yorker on leg stump that dips on the batter very late. It looks like Nuwanidu has not picked the variation and flicks at it too early. The ball goes past the bat and smashes into the pads, with the umpire also giving it out. No bat involved, and the ball has pitched in line as well. Going on to crash into the stumps! Nuwanidu has to depart!. 123/5
Carlos Brathwaite411734.25152010
1.2 to BKG Mendis, gone this time! Brathwaite draws first blood! Marginally short on off stump, and Mendis' eyes light up. He looks to smack it over deep mid wicket but against Brathwaite, hitting in front of square is always tough because of the extra bounce. The ball gets big on Mendis and he splices it straight to deep mid wicket, where Nissanka makes no mistake!. 2/1
3.2 to Azam Khan, huge appeal, and that looks very plumb!! Full delivery angled into the batter on middle and off stump. Azam walks across his stumps and then misses a fairly straight delivery. He is rapped on the pads in front of middle and off stump, and the umpire gives it out. Azam reviews, more in hope, you feel! No bat involved, and three reds on Ball Tracking. Azam has to walk back!. 10/3
3.3 to Iftikhar Ahmed, yes he can! Oh my word! Half-tracker outside off stump and Iftikhar could have hit that literally anywhere. Instead, all he does is middle it straight down deep mid wicket's throat. This is a procession now!. 10/4

Imad Wasim401513.75121000
9.6 to PWH de Silva, the Imad ploy works a charm! Given a bit of air on a length on leg stump. Hasaranga backs away, possibly looking to go over extra cover. The lack of pace, though, means that he chips it straight back to the bowler, who can't believe his luck! What a move by Kusal Mendis, and the Gladiators strengthen their grip on this game!. 50/3
Nuwan Thushara402626.50102020
3.1 to ADS Fletcher, edged and taken spectacularly! Put a cape on Azam Khan! Full delivery outside off stump that leaves the batter very late. Fletcher throws his hands at it and gets a thick outside edge. The ball hurtles to Azam's right, who flings himself and takes a special one-handed catch! That is simply stunning!. 12/1
14.2 to CR Brathwaite, taken in the deep this time! Dug into the track on middle and leg stump. Brathwaite backs away and has an almighty swipe at it. Again, he miscues it and this time, the ball arrows towards deep mid wicket, where captain Mendis makes no mistake!. 70/6
Wahab Riaz403408.50106000
Nuwan Pradeep3034011.3333110
Lakshan Sandakan402225.50102000
8.1 to PHKD Mendis, and Mendis perishes for the cause! Full delivery on middle and leg stump. Mendis brings out the expansive reverse sweep but does not have enough room to work with. In the end, he miscues it and the top edge lobs towards short third man, where the fielder does the rest. 41/2
10.2 to P Nissanka, what a catch! Flighted deliciously on a full length at the stumps, and it hangs in the air just enough to force Nissanka to play early. It seems Nissanka has not picked the googly either, and he ends up closing his bat face too early. The ball flies towards Sandakan, who is taken aback initially but does brilliantly to hold on!. 52/4
