3.6 to S Samarawickrama, Shout for an lbw and not given. Was it outside the line? No bat involved. It was a touch shorter and veers back from off, he cleared his front leg and was loading up for a full-blooded pull off the backfoot, got it terribly wrong. Here's Hawk-eye... pitching outside off, impact in line and hitting the middle stump, so the on-field decision will be changed!. 29/2
5.3 to MDKJ Perera, Inverses his stance to sweep but fails to connect! Short and goes on with the arm towards middle stump. They appeal in unison for an lbw and the umpire raises the finger in agreement. Looks a bit high and Fernando sends it immediately to the third umpire for another look. No bat involved says the third umpire, pitching outside off, impact is in line and it's smashing the stumps so the on-field decision stands, it's all over for Perera. Another dangerous customer removed inside the powerplay. Dambulla are in dire straits early in their innings and need some rebuilding work now. 35/3
2.4 to BKG Mendis, Bagged at short midwicket! Hits the hard length and gets the ball to kick off the turf on off, he goes merrily for an ambitious pull off the backfoot and didn't get the middle of the bat. Kamindu was strategically placed there for this shot, he instinctively flicks out his hands and the ball sticks in. 14/1
15.4 to AI Ross, Sounds the death rattle! Middle-stump sent packing with an incredible delivery, an off-cutter, on a shorter length and he was backing away to cut, ball swerved in and went through his defence. Ross was the main man in guiding his team to that Super Over in the first game and he showed he can go berserk in the last five overs. A timely scalp for B-Love Kandy. 117/5
11.2 to WIA Fernando, Avishka bites the dust! So just when Dambulla were getting back on track and the partnership was starting to look threatening, Udana flummoxed him with a well-disguised slower one on a shorter length, he went for the shot too early and got a thick edge to the slip fielder who reacts quickly and caught like a bird batches its prey. 77/4
19.6 to DM de Silva, Rams the yorker on off and he flicks it straight up in the air, launches it straight into the hands of Bandara at deep midwicket. An incredible innings comes to an end, he has hauled his team out of the trouble and helped them put up a respectable total. 156/6

Fall of wickets: 1-69 (Fakhar Zaman, 7.6 ov), 2-99 (Dinesh Chandimal, 11.1 ov), 3-129 (Kamindu Mendis, 15.6 ov) • DRS
7.6 to Fakhar Zaman, A nothing ball gets him the prized scalp of the danger man Fakhar Zaman! A half-tracker on off stump, he makes room and then ends up chipping it back to Dhananjaya who pockets the catch low down to his left. Dhananjaya you can do no wrong!. 69/1
15.6 to PHKD Mendis, Good length hoping in and he slaps it back to Kerr who takes a blinder in his follow-through! He is pumped up, clearly the standout bowler for Dambulla today. Mendis departs for 18. A couple of wickets could make this an interesting contest but with no asking rate pressure, it's Kandy's game to lose. 129/3
