His heroic innings earned him the well-deserved title of Man of the Match.

Liyanage’s all-round performance was highlighted by an excellent 56-run partnership for the seventh wicket with Maheesh Theekshana. 

This partnership helped stabilize Sri Lanka after a challenging start, as they had been struggling at 112 for 6 wickets in 30.5 overs.

The thrilling victory adds excitement to the series and showcases the resilience of the Sri Lankan team in a closely contested match. The final match of the series will undoubtedly be highly anticipated as both teams look to make their mark.
