After a much delayed start the match took off as it was reduced to 13 0vers per side. Tillakaratne Dilshan started off with a bang even after losing his fellow opener DLR Smith at the other end in the very 4th ball of 1st over who was bowled by Soahil Tanvir. Dilshan started off pretty well and making the opposition toil hard to stop the flow of runs from his bat. He lost his partners at the other end but he stood firm and kept scoring at fast rate striking boundaries and rotating the strikes well. Aussie player Bard Hodge gave him company after 2 wickets fell quickly as Hodge went on to make 27 of 20 balls after being hit wicket by Tanvir.
