Fall of wickets: 1-20 (Babar Azam, 2.5 ov), 2-28 (Lahiru Udara, 4.1 ov), 3-97 (Nipun Dhananjaya, 11.5 ov), 4-127 (Pathum Nissanka, 15.1 ov), 5-127 (Iftikhar Ahmed, 15.2 ov), 6-146 (Chamika Karunaratne, 17.3 ov), 7-154 (Mohammad Nawaz, 18.1 ov), 8-165 (Naseem Shah, 19.3 ov), 9-169 (Nuwanidu Fernando, 19.6 ov)
2.5 to Babar Azam, edged and gone! Mathews gets Babar. That's huge. This is a length ball quite wide of off, Mathews moves it away off the seam, and Babar pushes at it, trying to poke it through the covers. Wicketkeeper Haris - who had missed a run out of Babar earlier - takes a good catch high to his right. That's Strikers' best batter gone early.. 20/1
4.1 to LU Igalagamage, another for Mathews! This is a top edge, gobbled up by the keeper, who drifted towards short third. Just goes to show what a valuable bowler Mathews still could be in the shorter formats. This is a back of a length ball on about off stump that bounces more than Udara expects. He plays a pull but it balloons off his edge, and Haris tracks it back and pouches it safely. 28/2
17.3 to C Karunaratne, down long-off's throat. Pace-off length ball on off and angling across. Tries to flat-bat a muscled shot over wide long off but instead picks the fielder. 146/6
19.6 to MNK Fernando, yorker length just outside off. Nuwanidu moves off side and tries to flick off his heel, but misses. Off-stump rattled and B-Love Kandy need 170 to win.. 169/9
11.5 to ND Perera, simple for point! Length ball outside off and sliding further away. He backs away to cut but ends up slicing it. In the air and the fielder moves to his left for a dolly. 97/3
15.1 to P Nissanka, he's been honeytrapped at deep midwicket! Full on off and the legbreak too. Nissanka goes for the slog sweep, and it's a dangerous option with the leg-side sweeper so square. Runs to his left and takes a simple running catch. Smart work from Asif. 127/4
15.2 to Iftikhar Ahmed, two in two! Hasaranga you beauty Through the gates. Tantalises Iftikhar with a pitched up ball on off. He goes for a slog sweep to cow corner but leaves a big gap between bat and body. The stumps are rattled.. 127/5
18.1 to Mohammad Nawaz, holes out! Full, slightly wide outside off. Nawaz this time connects reaching out but it's been toe-ended. Hasaranga runs in from deep extra cover and slides to complete it. 154/7

Did not bat:
Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Mohammad Haris, 0.6 ov), 2-26 (Sahan Arachchige, 5.5 ov), 3-62 (Fakhar Zaman, 9.1 ov), 4-70 (Wanindu Hasaranga, 10.1 ov), 5-92 (Chaturanga de Silva, 12.6 ov), 6-96 (Angelo Mathews, 13.3 ov), 7-138 (Asif Ali, 17.3 ov), 8-160 (Ashen Bandara, 19.5 ov)
0.6 to Mohammad Haris, leading edge, and that goes straight to point. Naseem deserved that! That was full, on about off stump, swinging away late again. Haris closes the face trying to flick through midwicket, but the ball moves and the edge flies off to the fielder who takes it at thigh height.. 4/1
5.5 to SSD Arachchige, off the top edge, goes very high, and Iftikhar gets under it himself. Again Arachchige was trying to lift it over the legside, and again the bowler has slowed it up, pitched out outside off, and turned it. In the end, it's a comfortable caught and bowled.. 26/2
17.3 to Asif Ali, youngster gets the experienced pro! And he's done it with a yorker around off. The ball sneaks under Asif's bat as he tries to drive, and the bails have lit up and how. 138/7
19.5 to KNA Bandara, game, set, match. With one ball to go. Full ball just outside off and Bandara tried to slog it over the leg side but gets an inside edge onto the stumps. 160/8
12.6 to PC de Silva, what an excellent over! Slower ball pitched up on middle and Chaturanga gets a decent connection hitting it down the ground, but it's not off the sweet spot. Babar at the long-on boundary does the rest. The dangerous Chaturanga is gone.. 92/5
10.1 to PWH de Silva, SL wristspinner gets SL wristspinner! Vandersay would've enjoyed that. Pitched full outside off. Turning away. Hasaranga's eyes lit up seeing that tossed up but he's toe-ended the big shot. Up high in the night sky and Babar at cover keeps his eyes on the ball and gobbles it up. 70/4
13.3 to AD Mathews, Vandersay with another! This time by cover running in. Full and a tad wider. Mathews reaches out to hit it long on but a leading edge sends the ball the other way. The legbreak made it even tougher for him. 96/6
