The 24-year-old Fernando could not start his team well in the game. He broke some good boundaries, but could only contribute 20 runs off 17 balls, with 4 fours, before being knocked down by Siraj in the 6th over.

On the last delivery of the 6th over, Siraj bowled a long ball outside the stump which formed back sharply after delivery. The Sri Lankan batsman went for a big cover drive, but landed in and pushed the ball onto his stumps.
