TOTAL20 Ov (RR: 9.80)196/4
Fall of wickets: 1-74 (Brandon King, 8.2 ov), 2-106 (Nicholas Pooran, 12.3 ov), 3-145 (Andre Russell, 15.2 ov), 4-190 (Kieron Pollard, 19.2 ov)
15.2 to AD Russell, dear sweet heavens. What a contest. Maybe the best T20 bowler ever, against the hottest T20 player on the planet. The maestro triumphs this time with a special delivery. It's the yorker, what else. Where the ones at the top of the innings were swinging away from the right hander, this tails in deliciously late. In between Russell's bat and pad. Into the base of off and middle stump. Vintage Malinga.. 145/3
19.2 to KA Pollard, gets under this one a little too much though, and I think that's a slower one from Udana. He slams it high to long on, where Avishka Fernando comes in off the rope and gobbles it. 190/4
8.2 to BA King, drag down gets the breakthrough! It was a googly, so that worked in Sandakan's favour as King had to fetch that for the pull, he hit that pretty flat and hard but couldn't get the elevation to clear long-on and he might have also wanted to go squarer. 74/1
12.3 to N Pooran, ho dang!. Another googly, and Hasaranga gets a wicket off his third ball. This is similar to the previous ball, pitched just outside off, sliding across the left hander and turning away. Pooran tries to launch this against the turn over deep midwicket, but it's turning too far, and he can't connect very well. Flies neatly into the hands of the fielder on the boundary, who has to run in a bit to compete the catch.. 106/2

TOTAL19.1 Ov (RR: 8.92)171
Fall of wickets: 1-16 (Avishka Fernando, 1.3 ov), 2-16 (Shehan Jayasuriya, 1.4 ov), 3-17 (Kusal Mendis, 1.6 ov), 4-41 (Angelo Mathews, 3.6 ov), 5-56 (Dasun Shanaka, 5.6 ov), 6-143 (Wanindu Hasaranga, 15.3 ov), 7-151 (Kusal Perera, 16.3 ov), 8-161 (Thisara Perera, 17.4 ov), 9-168 (Isuru Udana, 18.1 ov), 10-171 (Lasith Malinga, 19.1 ov)
19.1 to SL Malinga, cleans him up and that's pretty comfortable in the end, it was a length ball angled in from around the wicket, Malinga swung all around it and missed but the ball didn't miss the stumps. West Indies go one-up. 171/10
1.3 to WIA Fernando, Mendis gets behind this one nicely. Length on off stump. Defended into the offside.. 16/1
1.4 to GSNFG Jayasuriya, he's out straightaway. Disappointing for Jayasuriya. He saw this short, wide ball, threw his bat at it, but didn't connect properly. It's a top edge and it flies almost directly to Cottrell on the third man boundary, where it is easily swallowed. Sri Lanka in a bit of grief early.. 16/2
1.6 to BKG Mendis, what a stunning over for Thomas. It's the pace that's messing with Sri Lanka. This is short and legside-ish. Mendis tries to shovel this over his shoulder, but it's too fast, and he only gets an glove to the ball, and Pooran easily collects that one. Three wickets in five balls for Oshane.. 17/3
3.6 to AD Mathews, Russell with a teriffic running catch. Oshane's pace is wreaking serious havoc. This is length on the stumps, and again, Mathews seems to be done in by the pace as he tries to launch this over midwicket. Mis-hits it seriously, and it flies into what seems like empty space in the outfield. Russell has somehow got across from long on and takes a wonderful sliding catch though.. 41/4
5.6 to MD Shanaka, Thomas is winning this single-handedly. Again it's Oshane's pace that does it. Shanaka expects this full delivery to be going down leg, and shuffles across, trying to glance this to the fine leg boundary. But he's misjudged the line. He misses the shot, and it clips leg stump. Oshane has a five-wicket haul, and he's only bowled three overs. Wonderful stuff.. 56/5
16.3 to MDKJ Perera, inch-perfect yorker ends a near perfect innings! It was full, fast and in the blockhole, Perera was a little late bringing his bat down on it and slid under to crash into middle, End of a brilliant innings from Perera, and the equation gets tougher for Sri Lanka. 151/7
18.1 to I Udana, full toss from around the wicket, Udana has a swing but mistimes it towars long-on, Pollard comes charging in before diving forward to grab it inches from the turf. 168/9
15.3 to PW Hasaranga, Hasaranga was shuffling, Powell went full and straight and hit him on the full. Was it sliding down? It was crashing into leg stump, replays suggest and that's the end of a spirited innings from Sri Lanka's bright, new allround sensation. He has to go for 44 and West Indies have finally broken through. 143/6
17.4 to NLTC Perera, picks out deep square leg! Credit to the bowler, for bowling to his field, saw Perera back away and followed him, Perera clipped it nicely but in the air and straight to the fielder, and you'd think West Indies can breathe easy now. 161/8
