We would’ve bowled first as well. Gunathilaka is injured, Asalanka comes in. We’ve got a balanced side. It was a bad day at the office (Last match vs Namibia) but let’s forget that. We never underestimate any sides. - Dasun Shanaka

The run out of Dhananjaya de Silva has affected the run-rate of SL but Pathum Nissanka’s presence will be a boost for them as he approaches the half-century mark.

Sri Lanka 113/2 (13.4 overs)

Pothum Nissanka 47* (43)

Karthik Meiyappan has picked up a hatrick (Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Charith Asalanka, Dasun Shanaka)

SL are going down like nine pins as UAE pick up their 6th wicket. At one stage they were looking to post somewhere around 170-180 but now they hope to post at least 150

19th over so far

2 , 6, 4, 1

Sri Lanka 147/6 (18.4 overs

Zahoor is bowling the final over

Sri Lanka 149/6 in 19 overs

Chamika Karunaratne lost his wicket

Sri Lanka 150/7 in 19.3 overs

Next man in - Pramod Madushan

Pathum Nissanka’s 74 takes Sri Lanka to 152 after Karthik Meiyappan’s hat-trick.

Quick fact: Karthik Meiyappan had joined the Royal Challengers Bangalore training camp in IPL 2020 to help in their preparation.

What a catch by Basil Hameed!:exploding_head::fire:

UAE are in great trouble as they lose 4 wickets in the powerplay with just 23 on the board

Sri Lanka needs to bowl them out for 91 if they want to go be ahead of their NRR game for the next game against Netherlands
