Full commentary

Asia Lions are the new giants, they win by 7 wickets. There was no stopping the openers (115 runs opening stand), Dilshan and Tharanga got them off to a great start, hitting boundaries at will, reminded us of their old self.

Lakshan: "Tuning in from Canada right before my med school final exam. Dila and Tharanga taking us back to the good ol' days. Reminiscent of the 2011 world cup quarter finals vs England. Unwavering, gigantic, and still flamboyant as ever!! "

Thanks everyone for your views, it has been a pleasure bringing you the live commentary for the Legends. Until next time, on behalf of Sudeep, this is Binoy George signing off.
