That brings us to the end of our coverage for this game of the Lanka Premier League 2020. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda for more live updates and match commentaries. This is Rishab, along with my colleague, Navjeevan, signing off for the night! 
Dinesh Chandimal finishes the game for the Kings! He's batted beautifully well, anchoring this chase. Held one end up at all times. Got those crucial boundaries upfront. Got good partnerships with Mathews and Russell. They maintained the run-rate well for most of the innings. They only needed a couple of good partnerships which they got. 

Just looked like the Stallions were in it at one point keeping it tight. But it was the Russell Muscle show that completely took the game away from them. Some lusty blows from him in real quick time that changed the course of the game! Always good to have someone like him in your side! 

The bowlers set it up really well for the Kings when they earlier managed to restrict the Stallions to under 150. Hasaranga put up a brilliant all-round effort for the Stallions but it just wasn't enough tonight. Chandimal was very sensible in the way he went about the chase and contributions from Mathews and Russell helped them through. They will be very pleased with this win, a comprehensive one that! 

Beating the table toppers of the league, that too by six wickets, will give them real confidence going ahead in the tournament. As a result of this game, the Colombo Kings have also moved to second place in the table now. This was the first defeat of the season for the Jaffna Stallions, they sti remain at the top of the table!

De Silva will continue
This is a good over for the Kings. Will take pressure off them. Should be easy now as they are marching closer to the target. Just 9 needed from 12 balls now. The Stallions need some miracle here if they are to win this. Chandimal has anchored the chase quite beautifully
