PLAYER OF THE MATCH
Chamindu Wickramasinghe

That's it from this game. After losing their first three matches, Dambulla now have back-to-back wins and are no longer at the bottom of the table. They now have a few days off with their next game on Sunday. As for Galle, they have a game in less than 24 hours. We'll be back for the double-header tomorrow. Until then, it's goodbye.

Nabi, Dambulla Sixers captain: Tough game, low total on the board, pitch wasn't that easy and the talk was to take wickets in the powerplay. Ball was swinging till 6th over. That's why I bowled 3-3 each (for the pacers). Yeah a little bit (did Udana's knock get them worried?). He hit some good shots as well. In one over, our plans were wrong.

Dickwella, Galle captain: We bowled well throughout the innings. Last over went for 24 but it didn't matter because it was a below-par score. It was coming onto the bat really well. But the Dambulla bowlers started really well. We lost three wickets in the powerplay. Didn't get the start which we're used to. These things happen in the tournament. It's a good match to lose.

Wickramasinghe, POTM: It was a hard time for our team (with the bat). Before going to bat the plan was to play 20 overs. Just executed the plan. Even with ball, I had my plans and executed it.

23:02 Local Time, 17:32 GMT, 23:02 IST: It got a little uncomfortable for Dambulla towards the end, but they've managed to hold on with a 25-run win. At 62/8, Galle Marvels seemed dead and buried but Isuru Udana smoked 72 off just 38 balls to give them some home. However, it wasn't enough as the challenge was just too big with no support at the other end. Fittingly it was Wickramasinghe who closed the game out in the final over as he picked up the remaining two wickets with 27 runs to defend. He had earlier propelled Dambulla to a total of 160 by smashing 38 off the final two overs, finishing on 56 off 34 balls.
