2.2 to WIA Fernando, Pradeep strikes! Avishka looks to whip this full and straight one onside but there's just enough movement away to catch the leading edge. It goes high into the Colombo sky as mid-off settles under it. 11/1
10.1 to S Samarawickrama, Castles him! The arm ball zips through off a good length. This keeps low as well and Sadeera really ought not to have been going back to this. 68/2
10.5 to BKG Mendis, And is this another!? Yes it is! Chaturanga is certain of it! Umpire says no, but they end up reviewing This was a quicker one that went through bat and pad as Mendis played back. It popped up off the back pad and Chandimal dived in front of the wicket to grab it. Is there an inside edge though? Yes there is!. 71/3
18.3 to DM de Silva, Sliced high and cover settles under it! This was a good length ball on off, that DDS looks to muscle over the offside but he's too late on the stroke and ends up slicing it straight up for Mathews to complete a simple take. 134/4

14.6 to LD Chandimal, fullish, on the stumps, Pramod Madushan has taken an outstanding catch at the fine leg boundary. Chandimal laid into that, and tried to crash that over the deep square leg boundary, but it came off the inside half of his bat. Madushan took it about one and a half metres inside the boundary, but made sure he stayed inside the ropes by looking back and stopping himself. He'd taken that catch over his head. 105/3
18.1 to Asif Ali, spectacular catch from KJP. One of the catches of the tournament. Oh my lord. That's a full ball outside off, off Asif Ali's outside edge, and it was FLYYYYIIIING past short third, but Kusal Perera leaps up and intercepts it at full stretch. A reflex catch at short third - which is rare. It would have been four had he not got hands to it. Could it change the game for Aura?. 132/5
6.3 to Mohammad Haris, beauuutifil slider. This is snuck through to hit off stump. This ball is quick through the air but has a lot of top spin on it, and Haris is late on chopping down on it. It sends the bails flying and Aura are ecstatic. They desperately needed that.. 49/1
12.4 to PHKD Mendis, not so good there. Tries the reverse sweep again and gets a top edge that settles in the hands of backward point, who is tracking back and holds it safely. This is slowed up a little bit from Noor, who has also put a little top spin on it, and pitched it further up. Mendis can't control the shot and goes for a decent, but not match-winning 44.. 94/2
15.5 to PC de Silva, length ball wide of off, chopped to backward point for a single. 107/4
