Then Kamindu Mendis tried to become a hero - he ended up holing out to the deep and it left his team well behind on DRS par score. Credit to Dasun Shanaka and Samit Patel, whose 128-run third wicket stand was the difference between 150 and 195. Losing in the superover and now losing on DRS - it's been a tough start to the tournament for the Tuskers, but they'll back their talented team to bounce back. On the other hand, the Viikings look solid and will only gain in confidence. That brings an end to our coverage of the first match. Don't go too far away, we'll have another game starting as soon as rain stops. For now, cheers and bye.. Dasun Shanaka, Player of the Match - It was a really good day for me, I enjoyed my batting. We all know how capable Oshada is, we were always playing one batsman short, but we ended up doing well. I don't think he'll recover fast, hopefully he will be fit for the tour of South Africa. We were targeting 160 at one stage, but we finished well to get to 195. I have played with them for a while, so know how effectively I can use them. Kusal Perera   - We did look at the forecast, but we can't control a few things. All our bowlers are young and inexperienced, and they capitalized, especially Dasun and Samit. But we need to plan better, the more games they play, they will get better. We have a few options, we have lost two close games, another six games left, we'll need to come back strongly The game has been called off and Dambulla Viikings begin their #LPL2020 campaign with a 4-run win over the Kandy Tuskers according to DLS method. They have points on the board, on the other hand, the Tuskers - it's their second straight defeat. They'll need to start winning, else the confidence could be down in such a league, where winning helps team build momentum and losing sucks everything 18:50 Local Time: It's still raining and with another match coming up at the same venue in 70 minutes time, not sure how much more time we have to get this game completed. The Tuskers lost their first match in the superover and they're now behind by only 4 runs. Think about the Kamindu Mendis dismissal? We are hearing that the cut-off time is 7:28 pm. Rain has to stop first and the groundstaff will need some more time to get things ready to play, 18:20 Local Time: That has turned out to be the last piece of action for a while. The rain is coming down and the players are off the field. Tuskers are behind on DLS and if the players don't return to the field, the Viikings will be the winners.

The Tuskers will wonder how they have thrown away another possible win. 196 was going to be a tough chase, but they seemed to have things under control when it was apparent that rain could play the deciding factor. Then Kamindu Mendis tried to become a hero - he ended up holing out to the deep and it left his team well behind on DRS par score. Credit to Dasun Shanaka and Samit Patel, whose 128-run third wicket stand was the difference between 150 and 195. Losing in the superover and now losing on DRS - it's been a tough start to the tournament for the Tuskers, but they'll back their talented team to bounce back. On the other hand, the Viikings look solid and will only gain in confidence. That brings an end to our coverage of the first match. Don't go too far away, we'll have another game starting as soon as rain stops. For now, cheers and bye..
