Fall of wickets: 1-4 (Pathum Nissanka, 1.2 ov), 2-19 (Babar Azam, 3.6 ov), 3-36 (Nipun Dhananjaya, 6.4 ov), 4-37 (Lahiru Udara, 6.6 ov), 5-63 (Nuwanidu Fernando, 10.5 ov), 6-68 (Mohammad Nawaz, 12.4 ov), 7-71 (Chamika Karunaratne, 14.1 ov), 8-74 (Shoriful Islam, 14.3 ov), 9-74 (Jeffrey Vandersay, 14.4 ov), 10-74 (Iftikhar Ahmed, 15.4 ov) • DRS
1.2 to P Nissanka, Through the gate, bends into middle and sends the bails on a flight. Kumara is absolutely pumped. Length ball arced in and Nissanka played around it. The ball angled in to beat the flick; went through the gap between gap and pad to rattle the stumps. 4/1
3.6 to Babar Azam, Chopped on and Kumara is ecstatic again! Shortish ball, moved in the air and then straightened further off the pitch. Babar went for the cut - a shot that'd have been perfectly reasonable had it not moved laterally. But it did and the 135kph ball went off the inside edge onto the pad and then trickled onto the stumps.. 19/2
15.4 to Iftikhar Ahmed, Heaves, misses and gets knocked over. Colombo skittled out for 74, the second-lowest LPL total of all time, behind Dambulla's 69 vs Jaffna Loopy length ball curved in, Ifti tried to sweep it with all his might. The ball came in, went below the bat swing and hit off.. 74/10
6.4 to ND Perera, Celebrappeal from Shamsi, umpire gives it lbw. A proper boot-call celebration ensues with a team-mate. Perera reviews. He pre-meditated the scoop, it didn't bounce as much as he expected and it looked almost like he tried to scrape the ball from below. Eventually, he missed it. What does ball-tracking say? Back of length, pitching around leg and spins away to hit the middle of middle. Wasted review.. 36/3
6.6 to LU Igalagamage, Spins in sharply to knock him over. Back of length, landed around fourth stump and ragged back in. Udara shaped for the cut but got severely cramped for room, it's what prodigious turn does. Snaked back to hit the stumps and Shamsi's shoe-lebrating again!. 37/4
10.5 to MNK Fernando, Shamsi's field day continues as he knocks over another. Fernando is beaten the inside edge, middle and stump get rattled. Length ball, landed outside off and spun back in. Fernando started on the back foot, tried to adjust late by getting the bat down. it ripped through the defence. More shoe-lebrations for Shamsi with Prasanna. 63/5
12.4 to Mohammad Nawaz, Caught behind, Shamsi has the fourth shoe-lebration with Prasanna. Length ball was slow, came in around off, spun away, Nawaz tried to push it with the open bat face but could only tickle it to the keeper. Shamsi's bamboozled both batters so far this over, Nawaz was just as low on confidence as was Ifti. He tried to dab it to third but it went off the sticker.. 68/6
14.1 to C Karunaratne, Clears the front leg and goes for an almighty swipe, misses and the ball hits off stump. Tossed up generously in front of off, Karunaratne wound up hard, tried to whip it and had the followed through agriculturally. Given there was no contact, that looked unattractive, to say the least. Prasanna's having a party with his mates right after with a dab and hugs going around. 71/7
14.3 to Shoriful Islam, You miss, I hit stuff. Prasanna sends up a kiss to the heavens. Loopy length ball had Shoriful go one knee and try to launch it across the line, but he was done in and the top of leg stump was clipped. 74/8
14.4 to JDF Vandersay, Lbw given right away, Vandersay reviews. Was it pad first? Yes, shows the replay. Googly on a length, was coming back in. Vandersay was deep in the crease and late on the back-foot defence. He's in front of off. He walks before ball tracking comes up. Three reds duly signal his end.. 74/9

Fall of wickets: 1-13 (Bhanuka Rajapaksa, 1.6 ov), 2-19 (Litton Das, 3.3 ov) • DRS
1.6 to PBB Rajapaksa, Spin away costs aggressive Rajapaksa, Udara has an easy stumping. Colombo have an early breakthrough. Rajapaksa danced down the track, and tried to launch the full ball through the line, maybe get it over straight mid-on. It straightened after pitching and made way for an Ifti fist-pump. 13/1
3.3 to Litton Das, The camera can't pan to the fielder in real time but the huge cheer from the keeper confirms Fernando's catch. He's run quite far to the left, from long-off, dove across and took a sliding catch. The ball was fullish, Litton tried to go inside out. Got decent connection but not all of it. Costs him in the end.. 19/2
