That brings an end to another double header of Lanka Premier League 2020. Both teams that batted first today posted a big score and managed to defend it convincingly. Thisara Perera was the star of the afternoon clash, while the second contest of the day will be remembered for the heated argument between Mohammad Amir and Naveen Ul Haq towards the closing stages. Shahid Afridi looked a touch charged up as well, but that's bound to happen when you lose three games on the trot. That's all from our side for today. This is Nikhil Jadhav signing off on behalf of Sriram AS and Siva. Goodnight friends!
