Colombo Kings win the game by 7 wickets and 35 balls to spare

A dominant showing by the Colombo King as they seal the game in the most comfortable of fashions with 7 wickets in hand and 6 overs to spare. The Tuskers have now lost their 5th game are facing the fear of exiting the league after a very poor showing in this vital game for them.

On the batting front, Chandimal (31 of 38) and Priyanjan (26 of 27) took it slow and wisely after losing 3 wickets. They never lost control of their respective knocks and ensured the Kings have an easy victory with no hiccups. 

On the bowling front, Munaf Patel (28-1) bowled very well by consistently moving the delivery and never allowing the batters to have control over him. Fernando (29-1) too bowled decently but the target just wasn't enough for the bowlers to put forward any major fight even though they tried to so with some degree of success.

Colombo Kings have now won their 4th game and are looking very much like the best team in the tournament. They would be hoping to continue this dominant run in the coming days. The Tuskers however would be under tremendous pressure to make a comeback in the league by registering some wins in their upcoming games. 

Dushmantha Chameera has been adjudged as the man of the match.
