outside the off stump, fuller as well, chipped over extra-cover for a couple of runs, but that does not cut it too much for the batting side, who have now lost their third game in four.
Hop over to the other match now, Uthura take on Basnahira at 8 pm local time.
Lasith Malinga: Still have two games and we hope to play good cricket in them, lost it in the second half of our bowling. Riaz batted well, the top-order needs to get runs. Looking forward to the next two games.
Kandamby: Happy with the performance, not a good start but Tharanga and Maik did well, thought this was a 150-run wicket and we bowled well. Not worried in the last few overs.
S Prasanna is the man of the match. He says he is happy to bowl the way he did this game after a not-so-good performance last game.
Uva did not begin well with the bat but finished off on a competitive 155/6 in their 20. Ruhuna never looked like they were in contention and the small margin of loss, of 14 runs is highly flattering, it was some bat-swinging from Wahab Riaz that brought the side close. Presentation in some time.
outside the off, full-toss as well and he manages to get it to long-off for a single
Malinga joins the fun.
in the block-hole, dug out by the batsman down the ground for a single, there was some confusion for the second one, in the end it costs them the wicket.

another wide, outside the off stump again and that was very, very wide outside the off, they are still in it
outside the off stump, fuller too, the batsman was giving himself some room, lets it go and luckily for him the umpire calls it a wide

slower one on his pads and he swings it across, connects off the middle and that has crossed the boundary, just four more of these!
short of length on the middle stump, flicked it away to deep square-leg for a single
shorter this time, he was giving himself room after movng down the leg side, he went for the pull but misses the top edge, exciting mini-battle between the two Pakistanis
yorker length on the off stump, swinging into the bat and he digs it out well, goes to mid-off
yorker length ball yet again, he was moving to the leg side and the bowler followed him rather well, gets it on the full and hits it to long-on for a single
yorker length and beats the bat, hits the pads and rolls over to the fine-leg for a four, leg-byes called

full gamut of shots, this one is reverse swept this time for a four, what a shot from the lower-order player, 14 off the last three balls!
four more, late fun from Riaz, it was shorter on the middle and he gave it his playing that stroke, through mid-wicket for a four
shot, slogged over long-on for a six, it was flat-batted over the bowler to a one that was shorter and outside the off
down the track and hammers it to the right of long-off, the fielder did not have to move too much but still struggled to get there
