So, that's it from this game and double header. We will be back tomorrow for another double header in Pallekele in the Lanka Premier League. Switch tabs to catch all the action from The Hundred and other cricketing actions across the globe across formats is available in our network. 

For now, this is Ayan Chatterjee signing off on behalf of my co-commentator Deepak Prakash alongside scorer/analyst Zeeshan Naiyer. Stay safe, happy, and cool. Goodnight and CHEERS!  
Kusal Mendis (Dambulla AURA Captain): "I think it was a pitch of at least 160 runs but our batting was below par, but the bowling partnership was very well despite the way Shoaib Malik batted."
Thisara Perera (Jaffna Kings Captain): "You know as a bowling unit we did well. Batting was disappointing and me included as well. We are getting into a big hole. In the last two games, we are not playing potential. We have to come back stronger and this happens you know. No pressure on me not at all."  
Hasan Ali (Player of the match): "As a batting unit we thought of putting in 160 and 170 runs but we failed to achieve it 134 was a small total, but the bowling unit felt they can win this game. We just followed our plans and bowled hard length. We have got Gurbaz early and a few more wickets to put them under pressure. The pitch wasn't easy as the ball wasn't coming on nicely but legend Shoaib Malik made it look easy."
11:19 PM IST & Local Time: Time for the post-match presentation.
11:10 PM IST and Local Time: A valiant effort from Shoaib Malik comes to an end as Jaffna Kings go down tonight. A superb bowling display by Dambulla AURA has seen them defend 134 and win the game by 9 runs. Jaffna Kings batting let them down as Shoaib Malik was the lone ranger in the end.  

Chasing 135 for the win, Jaffna Kings never got going and lost wickets at regular intervals. It was lone ranger Shoaib Malik who was left to do the heavy lifting. He was unbeaten on 74* off 53 balls and nearly took his side over the line. But it was a bridge too far as the top order failed. Dunith Wellalage got to 16, but the rest of the batters incurred single digit scores. 12 extras were given by the fielding side. 

Hasan Ali was the pick of the bowlers for Dambulla AURA as he finished with 3/20 in 4 overs. Binura Fernando bowled a miserly spell as he gave away just 8 runs in his 4 overs and picked up a wicket. Hayden Kerr picked up a wicket and finished with 1/21 in 4 overs. Noor Ahmad went the distance as he went for 46 runs in 4 overs and picked up a wicket. A good bowling display by Dambulla to win this match in the end. 

Earlier in the game, Dambulla AURA were put into bat first by Jaffna Kings and they lost their openers in the first over. Kusal Perera and Sadeera Samarawickrama repaired the innings somewhat as they put up 51 runs for the third wicket. Sadeera scored 30 while Kusal Perera top scored with 41 off 36 balls. It was Hayden Kerr's unbeaten 25* off 20 balls that took Dambulla's score to 134/8 in 20 overs. 8 extras were given by the fielding side. 

From Jaffna King's bowling point of view, Shoaib Malik was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 2/13 in 4 overs. Nuwan Thushara finished with a couple of wickets as he finished with figures of 2/26 in 4 overs. A wicket apiece for Maheesh Theekshana and Dunith Wellalage as well. The bowlers were good for them, but their batting let them down big time. 

So, Dambulla AURA wins this game by 9 runs to go top of the points table with 6 points. Stick around for the post-match presentations.
