That's it from us for this match. The evening game will be live shortly.

Wanindu Hasaranga, Falcons captain: After three losses we played a great game. Credit should go to our batters. Our bowlers didn't do well in the Powerplay, in the last three games. But we did well today.

Charith Asalanka, Kings captain: I think we were short of 10-15 runs with the start we got. These pitches are a nightmare for bowlers. It's a fast outfield and a flat pitch.

Chandimal is POtM: I thought as a senior player I needed to stand up, and I did. It's all about mentality and being positive when I'm batting. I relaxed my hands also a little bit. Very happy with how I playd.

Dinesh Chandimal deserves a lot of credit for giving Falcons the momentum in this gargantuan chase. But don't forget Pathum Nissanka's 119 - the highest ever score at the LPL, even if it did not result in a win. Falcons also bowled well towards the end of their innings, and retrospectively, that seems a crucial part of the game.

That win brings Falcons up to two wins. THey are now fourth on the table.

Asitha Fernando to Kamindu Mendis, SIX runs

six to finish. A fitting way to complete the highest ever successful chase at the LPL. They've run down 225 with 10 balls to spare. This is a bouncer on the chest, and Kamindu stays back and bangs this nonchalantly over deep square leg

length ball, down leg. Called a wide, but maybe Kamindu got a touch on it with pad. They burn a review just to reverse the wide call. It's a dot ball now because it flicked pad.
