Thisara Perera201718.5063010
2.1 to ADS Fletcher, and he gets Fletcher! Length delivery just outside off stump and Fletcher, because of the dot balls prior to this over, is enticed into a wild hack across the line. The extra bounce and slight nip away, though, means that he slices it down to third man, where Viyaskanth does the rest!. 8/1
Binura Fernando402315.75110110
19.5 to CR Brathwaite, Brathwaite bites the dust! In the slot just outside off stump. Brathwaite winds up, clears his front leg and has a massive swing at it. He mistimes it though, and skies it towards long off, where Perera judges the catch to perfection and gobbles it up! Slightly dodgy celebration by Binura, but he and the Kings will not mind that wicket one bit!. 141/8
Zaman Khan403117.7583010
15.5 to PWH de Silva, holes out to long on! Slower delivery on a length on leg stump, and that one just sticks in the surface. Hasaranga is way too early into his stroke and shanks it badly towards long on, where the fielder runs in from the fence and completes the catch!. 115/6
Maheesh Theekshana402426.0092010
14.5 to Najibullah Zadran, Samarawickrama is excited about this stumping! Fired down the leg side and missed by Najibullah. But he overbalances just a touch and Samarawickrama uses that time to whip off the bails. In fact, Samarawickrama has done brilliantly. The back foot is on the line, and Najibullah has to depart!. 106/5
16.1 to FA Allen, in the air, and taken spectacularly by Gurbaz at long off! In the slot outside off stump and Allen looks to go downtown. He does not get it right out of the middle but it looks like he has gotten enough wood to clear long off. Just as it seems the ball would sail over the ropes, Gurbaz comes hurtling to his right, stretches out, flicks the ball into the air, crosses the ropes and returns to complete the catch! What a splendid fielding effort!. 115/7
Vijayakanth Viyaskanth403037.5081100
9.2 to P Nissanka, flattens middle stump! Given a bit of air on a length on middle and leg stump. Nissanka has a massive mow across the line but can't account for the spin enough. The ball goes past his bat and then flattens middle stump! Just what the Kings needed at this stage!. 69/2
9.5 to PHKD Mendis, soft dismissal, the Falcons losing their way now! Length delivery and Mendis, moments after Nissanka's dismissal, looks for the extravagant reverse sweep. He looks to go over backward point but does not get enough elevation, only managing to spoon it straight to the fielder in the ring!. 70/3
13.6 to KNA Bandara, bowls him around his legs! Flighted nicely on a full length on leg stump. Bandara shuffles across and looks for the paddle. The ball, though, dips very late and is anyway too full to be playing that stroke. It sneaks past the bat and then crashes into leg stump!. 101/4

Isuru Udana2031015.5054130
Carlos Brathwaite3032210.6684030
1.5 to Rahmanullah Gurbaz, in the air and taken at third man! Length delivery outside off stump that might have left the batter late. Gurbaz has a wild slash at it and gets a thick outside edge that swirls towards third man, where the fielder does the rest!. 27/1
3.5 to WIA Fernando, straight to deep square leg! Full delivery angled into the batter on middle and off stump. Avishka looks to heave it towards deep square leg but does not quite get it right out of the middle. The fielder on the fence settles himself and takes the catch! The Kings lose another!. 54/2
Chamika Karunaratne2.401515.6281030
4.6 to Afif Hossain, soft dismissal! Well, that does change things! Dug into the track on middle and leg stump, and this one rushes onto Afif again. He has a swipe at it but is awfully late on the stroke, only popping it straight back to the bowler, who accepts the offering with glee!. 62/3
