That's it folks. Jaffna Kings looking good yet again. A Dambulla franchise looking lost yet again. Sixers have lost three in a row. Kings have won three in a row, having lost their first one.

Nissanka and Avishka were the main heroes for Jaffna with the bat, with Omarzai also hitting some late blows. Asitha Fernando was excellent with the ball, but Sixers were always going to struggle with this total.

That's it from us. We'll be back with tomorrow's double header too. Take it easy.

19.6
Pramod to C Wickramasinghe, no run

yorker on the stumps. The batter can only get a toe-end to it. No run there as it dribbles off towards the keeper

19.5
2
Pramod to C Wickramasinghe, 2 runs

full ball, angled in at the stumps, turned aerially through square leg.

19.5
1w
Pramod to C Wickramasinghe, 1 wide

bouncer, pitched too short, so it's called a wide. The batter had run at that one

19.4
2
Pramod to C Wickramasinghe, 2 runs

full ball, goes off the inside edge to deep backward square, who has work to do, so they take two

19.4

fired way down the leg side. Mendis does well to stop it

19.3
1
Pramod to Mustafizur, 1 run

full ball, wide of off, carved behind square to the deep third

Madushan is on a hat-trick. Mustafizur is the new batter.

19.2
W
Pramod to Madushanka, OUT

that's out too. Dilshan Madushanka, the new batter, has got a full delivery outside off, and he's sent it down the throat of long off, who is standing quite a distance in from the boundary.

19.1
W
Pramod to Hemantha, OUT

full, wide again, and that was a very slow slower ball. Back of the hand. Hemantha reaches for it and tries to mow it through leg, but it catches the top edge and it's a simple catch for Kusal Mendis with the gloves

Asitha Fernando to Hemantha, 1 leg bye

full again, almost yorker length, thuds into Hemantha's pad, and the batters take a leg bye

18.5
1
Asitha Fernando to C Wickramasinghe, 1 run

low full toss, tries to club this over the long off boundary. But can't get good enough connection and it's just a single instead.

18.4
1lb
Asitha Fernando to Hemantha, 1 leg bye

batter backs away and the bowler follows him, spearing it in full. Hemantha misses again, and it thuds into pad and the ball floats away towards short third as they take a leg bye.

18.3
Asitha Fernando to Hemantha, no run

yorker, swinging in, pitching just outside off and almost shaving off stump. Hemantha tries to whip it to leg but misses

18.2
1
Asitha Fernando to C Wickramasinghe, 1 run

full and wide again. Batter gets an outside edge to it, nd it goes on the bounce to short third. They sprint one.

18.1
Asitha Fernando to C Wickramasinghe, no run

wide yorker, just inside the guide lines. Batter throws his bat at it and misses

Hard to see how Sixers do it from here.They need a 20+ over to stay in it.

17.3
W
Azmatullah to Hendricks, OUT

reflex caught-and-bowled! This was full, tight into the stumps. Hendricks was trying to drive down the ground, and mis-hit it badly, but still reasonably hard. Came at belly height at Omarzai who stuck his hands out to his left and got it stuck in his hands.
