Fall of wickets: 1-1 (Fakhar Zaman, 0.4 ov), 2-69 (Dinesh Chandimal, 7.1 ov), 3-91 (Wanindu Hasaranga, 9.5 ov), 4-146 (Kamindu Mendis, 15.2 ov), 5-176 (Mohammad Haris, 17.5 ov), 6-185 (Asif Ali, 19.2 ov), 7-186 (Angelo Mathews, 19.4 ov), 8-188 (Isuru Udana, 19.6 ov) • DRS
0.4 to Fakhar Zaman, Beauty from Thushara! Full and swinging in on middle, Fakhar could've worked this away quite easily to be fair, but instead he swings across the line and gets nowhere near it.. 1/1
19.2 to Asif Ali, Finally one goes to a fielder! Asif stands and pulls this towards deep midwicket, but doesn't get the connection. And for Jaffna it's just the man they want under it, David Miller, who pouches this safely. 185/6
19.4 to AD Mathews, Mathews now top-edges this heave, but only manages to sky it straight up. Thisara comes under from mid-off and holds on well as this drops over his shoulder!. 186/7
19.6 to I Udana, Holes out at long-on! This was a full and launched straight to the man. An anti-climactic end to an otherwise relentless Kandy batting performance!. 188/8
15.2 to PHKD Mendis, Bowled him! Kamindu makes room to slap this over the offside, but Theekshana who was bowling from around the wicket angled this in full on leg stump and skids it past the swing of the bat. 146/4
17.5 to Mohammad Haris, And now Haris must go! End of a potentially match-winning innings! Haris charges Theekshana and ends up yorking himself. Misses the ball and Gurbaz completes the stumping. His teammates greet him with a deserved round of applause!. 176/5
7.1 to LD Chandimal, And he gets it! Would you believe it!? Chandimal's brilliant cameo comes to an end. This was too full to slog sweep and Chandimal misses it completely. Struck pretty plumb in front of middle and Chandimal decides to go off without burning a review.. 69/2
9.5 to PWH de Silva, Asela has the last laugh! Hasaranga swings hard once more, but this time there's some sharp turn on offer. It pitches and turns away past the outside edge, clattering into off. How big will this wicket be?. 91/3

Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Charith Asalanka, 1.3 ov), 2-32 (Rahmanullah Gurbaz, 4.2 ov), 3-48 (Dunith Wellalage, 6.3 ov), 4-49 (Chris Lynn, 6.5 ov), 5-101 (David Miller, 12.2 ov), 6-101 (Asela Gunaratne, 12.4 ov), 7-108 (Thisara Perera, 13.4 ov), 8-127 (Shoaib Malik, 16.5 ov), 9-127 (Maheesh Theekshana, 17.1 ov), 10-127 (Nuwan Thushara, 17.2 ov) • DRS
1.3 to KIC Asalanka, Holes out to deep midwicket! Goes for the slog-sweep but doesn't get a hold on it. Ball goes up high and Asif pouches a dolly. 6/1
6.3 to DN Wellalage, Brilliant catch at long-on! Wellalage goes for the big hoick to this full delivery just outside off. Skips out of the crease but doesn't get to the pitch of it. Kamindu Mendis misjudged the flight initially but does well to adjust and run in and put in a dive in front to grab it with his outstretched arms. 48/3
6.5 to CA Lynn, Massive shout and the finger goes up immediately!. The wrong'un does it again for Hasaranga. Lynn got down to sweep but missed it and this looked plumb. But Lynn reviews it. This is actually one that is angling in and stays straight and low to stay under the bat. He is hit below the knee roll in front of middle. And it's clipping leg-stump, so umpire's call and Lynn has to go! Two in his first over from Hasaranga!. 49/4
12.2 to DA Miller, Hasaranga you beauty! It's a sharp legbreak outside off that spins in a lot. Miller was swinging for the hills and was completely beaten as the ball crashed into the stumps. Talismanic stuff from the B-Love Kandy skipper today! First a double-wicket over and now the dangerous Miller is back in the hut!. 101/5
12.4 to DAS Gunaratne, Hasaranga has his fourth! Wrong'un this time and this also takes some sharp spin from outside off. Gunaratne went for a big pull but was through with the shot very early. Was the impact outside off? Because otherwise, that looks out! Nope, impact is in line and that's crashing into middle-stump. Gunaratne has to walk back and Jaffna also lose the review. 101/6
17.1 to M Theekshana, Yes he will! Tossed up full outside off, Theekshana dances out and wants to swing this down the ground but gets a leading edge to backward point where Arachchige takes a good catch diving in front. Takes it inches from the ground, the replay confirms. 127/9
17.2 to N Thushara, Swung high in the air and a juggling catch at deep midwicket means Hasaranga has his best figures in the LPL and B-Love Kandy are through to Qualifier 2. 127/10
13.4 to NLTC Perera, Perera misses the cut! It's a length ball on off that pitches and spins away. Perera moved leg-side but that was too low for the cut. It hits the off pole and Arachchige is pumped and so is Hasaranga. Perera goes for a duck. 108/7
16.5 to Shoaib Malik, Oh my! Udana, almost on one leg, has got the last recognised batter! Slower short ball outside off. Malik reaches out and looks to cut but can only spoon a simple catch to Mathews at cover. 127/8
