Thank you for tuning in with us, but do make sure that you're here for further updates and Live Coverage of the LPL! Till then, do take really good care of yourselves! 
Phil Salt's knock of 64 from 27 deliveries earns him the Player of the Match Award! 

That’s that, and it’s Dambulla Giants that have secured the win by 20 runs! 

 Opting to bat first, the Giants kicked off their innings in a scintillating manner. Niroshan Dickwella and Phil Salt stormed their way to a 97 run stand from just eight overs. Niroshan Dickwella was the first one to depart after getting dismissed to Lahiru Kumara for 37 (23). Shoaib Maqsqood walking in at number three could add just 11 (11), and was sent back to the hut by Sachindu Colombage. However, Phil Salt continued to bat with serious intent and struck boundaries left, right, and center. Salt’s knock of 64 (27), with four fours and five sixes provided the Giants with the perfect platform to target a big score. The skipper, Shanaka anchored his way to 24 (18), while, Ramesh Mendis’ 22*(11) assisted the Gladiators to 190-7 in 20 overs.

For the Kandy Warriors, Lahiru Kumara topped the charts with a spell of 3/34 from four. Al Amin picked up two, whereas, Sachindu Colombage and Rovman Powell chipped in with a wicket apiece.

Talking about the run chase, Kennar Lewis did try to add the pressure back on the Giants with his 17 (10). However, three wickets in quick succession by Nuwan Pradeep, Imran Tahir and Ramesh Mendis had the Warriors teetering at 28/3. Angelo Perera and Kamindu Mendis did try to consolidate out there in the middle but were dismissed for 24 (22) and 17 (18) respectively. Rovman Powell's quickfire knock of 42 (21) did entertain the fans to a degree, but the task of going 12 per over was too hard of a task.

Ishan Jayaratne added 18 (12), whereas, Sachindu Colombage’s unbeaten knock of 27* (16) narrowed down the margin of defeat late down the order.

 Ramesh Mendis was the standout performer with the ball, courtesy of his spell of 3/21. Nuwan Pradeep also contributed with three, while, Imran Tahir and Dasun Shanaka picked up a wicket each.

The Dambulla Giants restricted the Kandy Warriors to 170/8 from 20 overs.

19.6 D Shanaka to L Kumara
0 Short ball, outside off and Kumara tries to pull this one but didn't get any bat on it. With that dot ball it's Giants who win this game by 20 runs. 
19.6 D Shanaka to L Kumara
WD Wide. Short and wide outside off. Given as wide as batter misses it completely.
19.5 D Shanaka to S Colombage
1 Quicker length ball, Colombage whips that to midwicket for a single. It's that man Fernando with the fielding effort. Round the wicket good bowling that. 
19.4 D Shanaka to S Colombage
6 Six!! good length on off and middle. Colombage slogs this one over the mid wicket boundary for a six. Fernando at deep mid wicket tried to get a hand on it by diving over the boundary but didn't get anywhere near to it. Good effort from the fielder.
19.4 D Shanaka to S Colombage
WD Wide. Short again. Slow ball bouncer on middle but was too high.
19.3 D Shanaka to S Colombage
2 Bowls it on middle and leg, Colombage hits it to deep midwicket for a couple of runs. Again very good fielding by Fernando. Setting and raising the bars here. 
19.2 D Shanaka to S Colombage
0 Slower ball  bouncer and outside off, Colombage leaves it alone even though he shuffled across.

19.1 D Shanaka to I Jayaratne
W The short ball into the pitch, Jayaratne pulls it in the air, and OH MY GOD! What a catch that is! Anticipation, diving forward, and keeping his eyes on the ball. That is a ripper. The best catch of the tournament. He was air-borne and took it inches from the ground. Fernando is the catcher. Unbelievable catch! TAKE A BOW!

18.6 N Pradeep to I Jayaratne
1 Full toss on middle, Jayaratne shuffles across and sweeps this one to square leg for a single.
18.5 N Pradeep to I Jayaratne
6 SIX! Length ball and in the slot as Jayaratne goes deep into the crease and hits it way back over long-on for a huge SIX! Too full and in the slot as Pradeep gets what he deserved of that ball. Too late in this contest though. 
18.4 N Pradeep to S Colombage
1 Slow and short following the batter as he tries to make room by going down the leg. Gets a single as the batter forehands it to long on.
18.3 N Pradeep to I Jayaratne
1 Short ball slower in pace, into the pitch. Jayaratne pulls it to square leg for a single.
