Anwar Ali, Player of the Match: Have already played 130-140 T20s. I stayed relax, tried for wide yorkers and variations. Wicket was helpful for slower ones and slower bouncers. Try to stick to the basics, bowl the hard length and use the variations. Shanaka, Dambulla captain: Bowlers bowled some loose balls today so I was worried. But I knew our death bowling is good. In the middle part we were going at 6 or 7 per over. Will look to improve on that aspect in the next game. Rajapaksa, Galle captain: Last five overs, we had the match in control but we lost it somewhere. Maybe we didn't look for big shots. Danushka was in good form but he was just looking to paddle. Maybe would've been better if he looked for sixes instead of boundaries. 19:29 Local Time, 13:59 GMT, 19:29 IST: Despite the dropped catches and fielding lapses, Vikings hold on in defence thanks to some excellent death bowling by Anwar Ali and Kasun Rajitha. Galle were favourites deep into the chase when the partnership of Azam Khan and Gunathilaka was going great guns. Khan smashed a 20-ball fifty while Gunathilaka continued his consistent run in the tournament. The two put on 94 off just 48 balls, aided by a few dropped catches. It came down to a very gettable 50 off the final five overs. But Ali and Rajitha turned it around, hitting the blockhole a few times and then mixing it up as well to condemn Galle to their fifth straight defeat.
