7.19pm  Earlier in the game, South Africa Legends started well with the ball but leaked apleanty in the death overs to give Sri Lanka Legends the momentum heading into the break. It was Jeevan Mendis' brisk innings of 27-ball 43 proved to be the difference for them in the end.
7.12pm  Sri Lanka Legends fought till the very last delivery and have come out on top here! Tillakaratne Dilshan could not offer much with the blade earlier but he drew the first blood with the ball. Later the rest of the bowlers did really well to keep the run rate in check. Sri Lanka Legends bowlers showed excellent skills in the field as well and that helped them a lot in defending a target of 166 runs. Nuwan Kulasekara stood out with his brace.
7.12pm  South Africa Legends would be gutted with their effort. They were in this game for the most of the innings. Even after losing Andrew Puttick early on, Morne van Wyk and Alviro Petersen did really well to take their side to safer shores. Although, it was the former who ended up playing a lone battle. He hardly found any support at the other end after the dismissal of Alviro Petersen. In the end, it got too much for Morne van Wyk as well and he slipped out at 76 runs. Later, South Africa Legends could not turn up with the bat in the death overs and thats where they lost the game.
7.07pm  What a comeback this has been from Sri Lanka Legends. They have forced a collapse here from South Africa Legends and have recorded their third consecutive win of the campaign. A truly deserving win for the Sri Lanka Legends.
Ishan Jayaratne to Johan Botha
FOUR! A boundary to end the innings but they have fallen well short here! Ishan Jayaratne goes full and outside the off pole, Johan Botha gets his bat down in time and guides this to deep backward point for a boundary. Sri Lanka Legends have bowled well to win by 11 runs.
Ishan Jayaratne to Johan Botha
Bowls another well directed yorker that just misses the off stump and goes through to the keeper.
Ishan Jayaratne to Zander de Bruyn
NO BALL! Is there a twist? Ishan Jayaratne bowls a slower delivery short in length and in line with the stumps, Zander de Bruyn pulls this to deep square leg for a single. He oversteps and there will be a FREE HIT. 16 runs needed in 2 though.
Ishan Jayaratne to Zander de Bruyn
That should be the game for Sri Lanka Legends! Ishan Jayaratne serves a yorker just outside off, Zander de Bruyn is unable to dig this out and the ball does through to the keeper.
