0.4 to N Dickwella, And now Dickwella must go! The early movement does the trick for Udana. The last one shaped away, this one nips in from roughly the same good length. It hits him on the knee roll in front of off. This looks plumb, and they don't even bother reviewing.. 4/1
16.5 to D Lakshan, Swatted straight to deep midwicket! Six and out. Slower back of a length ball does him in. Lakshan is early into his pull and drags it straight to Ashen Bandara. They are checking the catch. Definitely not a no-ball and Bandara has taken it quite comfortably. The ball did pop out of his hand just as he was completing the catch, but I think the ball did not touch the ground. The third umpire has a few looks and concedes the catch was clean.. 120/4
18.2 to Babar Azam, Perishes this time around and the slower back of the length ball has done the trick for Udana! Was dug in again, as Babar looks for another swat. This time he loses shape and the ball balloons to long on who dives forward to complete the catch.. 141/5
13.1 to MNK Fernando, Straight down deep midwicket's throat! The pressure that the spinners put on at the other end has reaped rewards. Back of a length ball into the batter's hips as he swivels and looks for a pick up shot, but is done in by the pace. The ball hits the splice of his blade and deep midwicket hardly had to move much.. 93/3
19.3 to Mohammad Nawaz, The stumps are rattled and Hasnain celebrates! Full, straight - the you miss I hit kind of stuff on off. Nawaz misses, and Hasnain hits. Nawaz gets his front leg out of the way eyeing the deep midwicket fence. But connects at thin air and the zing bails light up.. 151/6

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Thanuka Dabare, 0.6 ov), 2-28 (Kamindu Mendis, 4.1 ov), 3-34 (Dinesh Chandimal, 5.3 ov), 4-66 (Angelo Mathews, 10.1 ov), 5-75 (Ashen Bandara, 10.4 ov), 6-84 (Wanindu Hasaranga, 11.3 ov), 7-93 (Aamer Jamal, 13.1 ov), 8-115 (Isuru Udana, 16.4 ov) • DRS
0.6 to PTM Dabare, Another huge appeal for leg before and after a long think the finger goes up! So strange as the Dabare started walking before the finger went up, and now after chatting with his partner his gone for the review. This was full on off, and seemed to have struck the front pad before glancing the pad through to the keeper. And it's umpire's call on hitting the wickets. No reprieve this time for Dabare, but Kandy retain the review. 4/1
4.1 to PHKD Mendis, Chops it on! Short of a length on off, and Kamindu looks to open the face and run this down to third man. He'd played that exact stroke in Naseem's previous over, but this time it comes back a touch off the seam and Kamindu only manages to get an inside edge and his stumps disturbed. 28/2
5.3 to LD Chandimal, Another one chops it on! This had Chandimal bamboozled, it's short of a length but pace-off, 131kph,. Chandimal makes room to cut it, but is early on the stroke, he tries to adjust but ends up playing on to the top of off stump. 34/3
11.3 to PW Hasaranga, Was there an nick there? There is a loud appeal, instant from Dickwella but the umpire is unmoved! They have a taken the review. Slower back of a length ball outside off. Hasaranga is leg side of the ball and searches for it. And there indeed is a spike on the UltraEdge as the ball passes the outside edge. The umpire has to change his decision and now Kandy are really struggling.. 84/6
16.4 to I Udana, Ballooned straight up and long on gets across to pouch a comfortable catch! Fuller on middle and leg. He clears his front leg looking for a massive swipe, does not get under it and Nawaz ain't dropping those.. 115/8
10.1 to AD Mathews, Spooned straight up and long off juggles twice but grabs it ultimately! This is a big wicket for Strikers. Leg break turning away from the batter, who looks to go straighter but the ball balloons up off the top edge. A dodgy catch, but a catch nonetheless.. 66/4
10.4 to KNA Bandara, Oh, what a riposte and Vandersay has had the last laugh! Lovely ripper that pitches on middle and off and turns away. Bandara looks to open up the off side, is beaten in the flight and sees his off pole pegged back.. 75/5
13.1 to Aamer Jamal, And he strikes first ball after the break! Now, why did he do that? Flatter, straighter ball on off. He shapes up for the reverse, is nowhere near it and sees his stumps rattled.. 93/7
