Johnson Charles | Player of the Match: Was a good pitch but was favouring the slow bowlers. Couldn't hit through the line against the spinners. Was also helping pacers when they took pace off. Wasn't reading him initially (Hasaranga), but that's what wicketkeeping teaches you is to watch the hands closely. Thisara Perera | Winning captain: After lot of experiments, we went back to full strength today. Run outs is part of cricket. As a bowling unit we've done a really good job. This kind of weather and conditions, it's difficult to grip the ball. Have to mention Hasaranga who did a great job in these conditions. Dasun Shanaka | Losing captain: The two runs outs cost the game for us. The game could've been different otherwise. 165 was gettable on this wicket. Hasaranga is a match-winner always.

Commentary

As Perera said, the conditions were difficult for the bowlers towards the end. There was dew around. And to come out with 3/15 is just a special effort from Hasaranga who's comfortably on top of the wicket-taking charts in this tournament. Watch out for him in the final as well. Should be a cracker on Wednesday. We'll be back with you then. For now, it's goodbye.
