Zahoor Khan402817.0083030
17.1 to DN Wellalage, holes out to long on! Slower delivery banged into the track outside off stump. Wellalage gives it everything he has but he has no pace to work with. He waits an eternity for it before arrowing it down long on's throat!. 125/5
Carlos Brathwaite201909.5054000
Isuru Udana403228.00104100
18.2 to Shoaib Malik, straight to the fielder at long on! In the slot, and on most days, Malik would have launched that into the stands. But today, when he has been struggling for timing, he can only shank it off the inside half of the bat towards long on, where Karunaratne does the rest. 134/6
18.5 to JK Fuller, another bites the dust! Slower delivery on a full length outside off stump. Fuller walks across his stumps and has a swipe across the line. He mistimes it a touch, though, and spoons it towards deep mid wicket, where Bandara makes up plenty of ground and dives forward to complete a smart catch. 138/7
Fabian Allen402325.75102000
4.1 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, knocks him over first ball, oh my! Flighted deliciously on a length on middle and off stump. Gurbaz presses forward but then, because he is not to the pitch of the ball, goes fishing at it in front of his pad. The ball grips in the surface, rips past the outside edge and smashes into the top of off stump. Gurbaz can't quite believe what has just happened, but he has to go!. 38/1
10.4 to S Samarawickrama, cleans him up! Excellent bowling! Slowed up wonderfully on a length on middle and leg stump. Samarawickrama is deceived in the air completely and goes searching for it. He over-balances, and leaves a massive gap between bat and pad - a gap the ball exploits before thundering into the stumps. 76/3
Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva402626.5091010
7.2 to DM de Silva, huge appeal, and given! Hasaranga does the trick again! Googly on a length on middle and off stump, and de Silva has absolutely no clue about that one. He presses forward and then goes searching for it, almost in hope that the ball will hit the bat. But it doesn't. It sneaks past the bat and hits him on the back pad. The umpire raises his finger. de Silva, though, reviews! There is no bat involved, and Ball Tracking returns with three reds! de Silva has to depart!. 55/2
11.4 to WIA Fernando, oh dear, that is such a soft dismissal! Full delivery on middle and off stump. Avishka walks across his stumps early and looks for the scoop. The only problem is that he does not have a lot of pace to work with. In the end, he chips it straight to short fine leg, who completes the catch comfortably. 80/4

Thisara Perera10606.0031000
Maheesh Theekshana402917.2573000
14.1 to CR Brathwaite, Theekshana has induced a false stroke off the very first ball. Brathwaite has a waft outside off stump, and Samarawickrama thinks he has nicked it. We go upstairs! And, Ultra Edge shows that there is a massive nick, and Brathwaite has to make the long walk back!. 96/6
Zaman Khan3036112.0066020
2.3 to ADS Fletcher, taken at backward point! Length delivery in the channel that nips away sharply and bounces a tad extra. Fletcher has a nibble at it without any foot movement and gets a thick outside edge that flies towards backward point. Avishka lines up the catch early enough and completes it without much fuss!. 18/1
18.6 to KNA Bandara, back of a length delivery on middle and off stump. Bandara clears his front leg and heaves it towards deep mid wicket. He puts on the turbocharge to hare back for the second and has to bring out the dive. But has he made his ground? Yes, he has! Superb running!. 138/7
James Fuller403518.75103210
5.4 to PHKD Mendis, edged and taken! Full delivery slanted across the batter way outside off stump. Mendis goes chasing after it without any foot movement and feathers it through to the keeper. It was there to be hit, although Mendis' execution left plenty to be desired!. 54/2
Vijayakanth Viyaskanth401914.7580000
12.2 to FA Allen, holes out to long on, this is very ordinary cricket! Half-tracker on off stump, and Allen could have hit that literally anywhere. Instead, he makes a hash of it and arrows it straight to the fielder at long on. Allen is livid with himself, and the Kings are right back in this game!. 90/5
Dunith Wellalage401724.2590000
9.2 to P Nissanka, feathers it through, and Samarawickrama gobbles it up! Tossed up nicely on a length just outside off stump. Nissanka's eyes light up, and he dances down the track, looking to go inside out. But because he is not to the pitch of the ball, and because of the turn, he only ends up nicking it through to the keeper. The Kings are inching their way back into this contest!. 79/3
11.4 to PWH de Silva, chops it on, oh my! Length delivery fired into the batter on middle and off stump. Hasaranga plays the trajectory, rather than the length, and stays back. He has a hurried jab at it in the end but can only drag it back onto his stumps! The Falcons are just threatening to lose their way here!. 89/4
