Amir | Player of the Match: I don't think it is tough (bowling with youngsters). As a youngster, you are usually under pressure but they are responding well. He (Sandakan) has been bowling well and has delivered for us whenever we needed. Rajapaksa | Winning captain: It's very exciting to win our first game. All-round performance it was. Special thanks to our fast bowlers. We have struggled to take wickets but we did it well today. Amir and Sandakan were brilliant, and special mention to young Thushara who played his first game. We wanted to avoid bowling too many extras and it worked for us. Mathews | losing captain: We weren't upto the mark today. Galle outplayed us in all departments. Intensity wasn't there. We were about 20-30 runs short with the bat. The next few games are going to be vital. Although we are already in the semis, confidence is key and we want to keep winning. 19:14 Local Time, 13:44 GMT, 19:14 IST: Technically, this is an upset but try telling that to Galle. They were nearly there last game before stealing defeat from the jaws of victory. Not today though. First, Amir and Sandakan shared eight scalps between them to keep Colombo to an under-par score on a lovely batting strip. And then, the top four fired in unison to ensure a stress-free run chase. Gunathilaka shone again, as did his opening partner Ahsan but what would please the camp is the return of form of their skipper Rajapaksa. The captain along with the in-form Azam sealed things with 15 balls to spare. A crushing win indeed, and it does open up the tournament now. Colombo were shoddy throughout, reckless with the bat and then quite clueless with the ball. They won't panic yet though, but will want to mend mistakes. 17.3 Dhammika to Azam Khan, FOUR , Khan completes things in style! Fuller ball, he holds his shape and just chips this straight over the bowler's head. As easy as you like! Galle have hammered Colombo for their first win! 17.2 Dhammika to Azam Khan, 2 runs, Khan wanted to finish this off in style but his chip-drive isn't timed that well. Still clears mid-off and they pick up a brace Just a hit away now! 17.1 Dhammika to Azam Khan, SIX , it's high and it's long enough too! Khan was quick to rock back for the pull but ended up getting it more off the top half of the blade. Doesn't matter, still over the ropes at deep mid-wicket Dhammika Prasad [2.0-0-21-1] is back into the attack GGD: 163-2 after 17 overs 16.6 Udana to Rajapaksa, no run, some swerve on this inswinging yorker, beats the bat and curves further down leg, well past leg stump 16.5 Udana to Rajapaksa, no run, very full and on off stump, Rajapaksa keeps it out nicely 16.4 Udana to Rajapaksa, SIX , pumped away! Short and sat up to be hit, Rajapaksa hung back to pull this merrily over deep square leg. Easily done!! 16.3 Udana to Rajapaksa, FOUR , excellent hit! Wow! Charged down early, Udana followed him with a very full ball and yet, Rajapaksa has found the space to use his hands through the ball. Terrific bottom hand and wrists to generate power on this shot. Blazed through the covers 16.2 Udana to Rajapaksa, no run, a near-yorker on middle and leg, squeezed out towards mid-wicket Another hold up in play. Seems like that light from the ad hoardings once more. Right, we're ready to resume. 16.1 Udana to Rajapaksa, no run, full and angling into Rajapaksa who checks this flick a bit. Doesn't carry to mid-wicket Isuru Udana [3.0-0-22-0] is back into the attack Timeout! One of those needless breaks with the game all but done. Maybe Galle can decide how to party tonight, because they have been brilliant all-round. Colombo have had a rare off-day and they'll be treating this as a timely wake up call.
