43
10 matches of the Sri Lanka Cricket Major Limited Over Tournament concluded around the island today (18). 

Adeesha Nanayakkara’s second consecutive century went in-vain as Sri Lanka cap Dhananjaya De Silva made a belligerent  century to take Tamil Union to a thrilling two wicket win over Bloomfield.
Hashan Dumindu and and Avishka Fernado made centuries to guide Colts to a crushing 185 run win against Lankan CC while Ruvindu Gunasekara’s timely century helped Saracens to a crushing 131 run win over Ports Authority.
Kaushal Silva guided a rather comfortable run chase against Panadura SC for Sinhalese Sports Club. He remained unbeaten on a 100* after Panadura were reduced to 176 earlier in the day.
Chathuranga De Silva’s all-round brilliance crushed Air Force SC by 142 runs in Katunayake. De Silva made 101 in NCC’s 210 with the second top scorer being Mahela Udawatte who made only 22. He then returned to capture four scalps with the ball but the hero for NCC with the ball was Sachintha Peiris who ended up with a six wicket haul.
