that final was one of the best matches played in that ground.surely the best twenty20!dharumavantha fought back really hard and earned them something they were never expected to get in one point of the match(when jilwaz,mihusan and sajan fell in quick succession).the unlikely evan played a fantastic innings as i would describe his short and gutsy innings that way.some very non familiar players were marked in the last innings like evan and salman.only thing that went unfair was awarding hassan ibrahim(longey's son) the man of the match award.yes he did score some runs in quick manner and did take a couple of wickets(i guess) but that wasnt a huge influence on any innings.salman gave majeedhiyya the breakthrough when hassan was smashed for runs with the new ball.salman took 3 wickets for jus 22(i heard dat he took good wickets like mihusan's and sajan's).im really disappointed that board did't recognize these contributions while considering man of the match.anyways it was a great match which showed the hard fighting players who will be leaping in the national squad soon.....

itz not that salman's wickets werent good.. but hassan played a brilliant knock and a perfect last over taking one important wicket.. and also while batting he had quick fire to take the total to 146.. so itz not unfair
