Galle Marvels romped to their second win defeating Colombo Strikers by 7 runs on the Player of the Match feat by all-rounder Isuru Udana who lashed 52 off 34 balls and claimed 2 wickets for 34 in defending 179 off 20 overs with Colombo contained to 172 for 9 off 20 in the fifth fixture of the LPL at the PallekelleInternational Cricket Stadium yesterday.

Put in to bat, Galle Marvels skipper Niroshan Dickwella belted 50 off 18 inclusive of 6 boundaries and 3 sixes in a rousing 71-run start together with Alex Hales run aball 14 off 5.2 overs   of the powerplay. But they collapsed to 5 for 86 and 94 for 6 before the fury of Pakistan pacer Shadab Khan who removed Dickwella, Tim Seifert 12, Janith Liyanage 2 and Dwaine Pretoris 5 in a 4 for 21 grab with local pacer Binura Fernando cashing in with 3 for 22.

But Isuru Udana and Sahan Arachchige 35 off 27 (4×4, 1×6) stood between in a face-saving seventh-wicket 79 off 51 balls.
