That's all from our side for this game. See you soon as Colombo Strikers take on Galle Marvels shortly.

Charith Asalanka: They had two left-handers in the middle so I thought me and Dhananjaya could bowl earlier. I think Avishka batted really well and his innings gave us the energy.

Mohammad Nabi: We had enough runs for this kind of a slow track, especially when you have three spinners in the squad. But Avishka and the captain [Asalanka] played really well. Those three overs in the middle cost us the game.

Avishka Fernando is the Player of the Match.

6.30pm A come-from-the-behind win for Jaffna who are now off the mark. Dambulla have lost two in two. Chasing 192, Jaffna were 78 for 3 after ten overs but Avishka Fernando kept them in the game. Asalanka was struggling but he turned the game around with four successive sixes against Vimukthi. Dambulla did manage to stretch it till the last ball but Allen dashed their hopes. And that means Kusal Perera, who scored the fastest LPL ton earlier, ends on the losing side.

Mustafizur to Allen, FOUR runs

is that the game? Mustafizur goes full with his slower one. Allen throws his bat at it and even though he didn't middle it, it goes to the right of short third for four. Just four needed now

Mustafizur to Azmatullah, OUT

a direct hit! And Dhananjaya is out. Omarzai dabbed a length ball towards point and set off. It went straight to the fielder who took aim and nailed the direct hit at the striker's end. Dhananjaya was nowhere in the picture

Thushara to Avishka Fernando, OUT

full and wide. Avishka goes for the big one but couldn't middle it. Long-off runs in and takes a comfortable catch near the 30-yard circle. Is there a twist in the tale?
